It’s time to say goodbye to expensive and time-intensive outsourcing of large-scale 3D printed parts. With the Form 3L, a cost-effective large-format 3D printer, you can bring your biggest ideas to life in-house at an unprecedented price point.
Get out customer story and learn how:
Shortly after Ashley Furniture brought in the company’s first stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer, one of their production engineers had an idea. Was it possible to replace machined alignment pins with end-use 3D printed parts, avoiding the long lead times and minimum order quantities of outsourcing?
For manufacturers, maximizing production speed while maintaining high part quality is critical for success. This white paper outlines the principles behind creating effective jigs, fixtures, and other manufacturing aids in-house, with an emphasis on leveraging 3D printing to reduce costs, shorten development time, and create more efficient production workflows from design engineer to manufacturing floor technician.
Businesses can expand their use of additive manufacturing by turning to large-format 3D printing. To produce larger parts, many currently turn to outsourcing. However, outsourcing 3D printing can be time-consuming and costly. In this eBook, we look at how in-house large-format 3D printing with the Form 3L stacks up against other methods of production, mainly outsourcing and using FDM printers.
In-house 3D printing is becoming increasingly more popular amongst companies, it can bring full-size prototyping in-house at a fraction of the cost of traditional manufacturing techniques. The high-quality prints and no need for outsourcing reduce time spent prototyping.
Curious to see how you can leverage the Form 3L to fit company needs and get that ROI even faster? Use our tool to help calculate that. Just select some parts and your desired output rate and we will calculate how long it would take you to reach your return on investment by utilizing the Formlabs Form 3L and what your costs would be compared to outsourcing your 3D print.
