Prototyping and testing of product enclosures used to be a tenuous, time taking and costly process. Azista Industries was looking to launch their new healthcare product in Indian market but was looking to do it in a cost and time-effective manner. That’s when they found Soch3D, a digital manufacturing company to deliver their product to their customers just the way they wanted
Dental industry is being revolutionised by 3d printing technologies. With the advent of low cost and precision manufacturing processes like SLA, DLP and FDM a lot of dental procedures now involve 3d printed components like dentures, implant guides, crowns and surgical guides. Das Dental clinic is one of the leading clinics in Nagpur trying to embrace 3D printing technology to provide their customers with more precise and quick treatments. So when they were attempting to transition from conventional processes 3d printing came to their rescue.
Any product goes through different stages of development before launch for the mass markets. It starts with prototyping and then moves on to alpha testing and beta testing where a few copies of the product are made and tested by their potential customers. Based upon the customer feedback the products are further iterated and finally, mass-produced. Testing phases often require few tens to a few hundreds of replicas made and given to users depending upon the product. This testing phase can often cost the companies a lot of money if not done right. Using conventional manufacturing processes can turn out to be quite costly for a few hundred pieces. This is a problem Omnyk Inc was facing and 3D printing helped them to bring their product to beta testers and get ready for the product launch.
Climate change is real and impending. The only way to tackle it is shifting to renewable sources of energy sustainable way of storing it. Bloom Energy is a company whose mission is to make clean, reliable, and affordable energy for everyone in the world. To fulfil this mission, they have developed a distributed, on-site electric power solution that is redefining the electric power market and transforming how power is generated and delivered. Because of its size it is not possible for them to demonstrate their product to their potential customers in actuality. So they approached Soch3D to make miniature yet realistic models of their energy server to illustrate in a realistic way to their clients.
Engineering concepts often need physical, functional models to validate and quantify their performance. Be it large companies or students, making these functional proof of concept prototypes plays a significant role in their understanding of the intricacies of a mechanism. NIT Calicut students approached Soch3D with a new and never tried design for an aerofoil. The only problem was they couldn’t test their theory without placing an actual model of their aero foil design in a wind tunnel and study its performance while comparing it with their theoretical analysis.
Typically, FRP components are made by placing the fibre preform in or on the mould. The mould is generally made out of wood or similar soft materials like MDF for ease of fabrication. These soft moulds are handcrafted or made by CNC machines depending upon the level of accuracy and complexity of the features involved in the design. Because of these factors, it can often take a few weeks to make these moulds. Fibro Reinforced Plastics Pvt Ltd was facing a similar predicament when they turned to 3D printing to solve their problem.
In architecture, it is paramount to convey the ideas to clients with conviction. The creative workflow of the architects is often visualized to prospective clients through concept models made in CAD software. Though this is effective on a certain level it is not quite tangible to the inexperienced eye. This is where scaled models come into the scene. Typically these are made by model makers using a variety of materials and processes which can take up to weeks and cost a fortune. Gensler India Pvt Ltd was in need of a scaled model of their proposed project to be done in 2 days. 3D printing came to their rescue.
Innovative new products are essential to the progress of any society. Companies that use and act on their insights get a jump on the competition. They are the competition. They leave behind those that are lulled by the security of strong, enduring economic performance and the conventional corporate wisdom that stays the course. For an internal competition driving innovation, VISA wanted to reward the winners in an innovative way. Conventional rewards like shields and trophies are mundane and non-inspiring. With the help of 3D printing, VISA rewarded the winners of their competition with creative trophies made by 3D printing.
It Profound India, is a Subsidiary of It Profound Inc, is a digital product company based out of Bengaluru. It was developing Elaachi, a proprietary, cross-platform voice assistant designed to elevate the guest experience and streamline operations in luxury hotels.
SanDisk India was looking for a fixture/platform for Huawei Mate 20 pro for testing its memory card’s functionality under extreme temperature setup of range -40 to 160° C for extended period of time.
We enterprises was looking into possible ways to fabricate accurate laptop body parts, it stumbled upon a YouTube video on 3D Printing application. Hence, they contacted Soch3D to explore the possibilities of 3D Printing to fabricate specific laptop body parts.
Allgo Systems were looking for a design idea and a corresponding working prototype for a head gear for use in data collection for motion capture of the head. Allgo systems had a basic head gear setup which was unstable, DIY looking. They approached Soch3D for getting an end use prototype as per certain specifications
Ferra Aerospace India wanted to showcase their UAV concept at an AeroExpo and also gift the model to their Senior officials visiting their office. The Expo was approaching fast when Ferra Aersopace contacted Soch3D team with the conceptual design of their UAV. With the help of 3D design, FDM 3D printing , post-processing and painting, Soch3D delivered their models in 4 days time.
