THE FUTURE OF
3D printing can change music as we know it. No only for the on-demand manufacturing of parts but for creating entire instruments. Ofer Löwinger, Mechanical Engineer at BigRep, shows us how he imagined and then printed a full functional violin with fantastic sound quality on the BigRep ONE. Additive manufacturing opens new doors for the music instruments industry.
CHANGING THE INDUSTRY
VILLEROY & BOCH
Villeroy & Boch is a well known manufacturer of ceramics.
Johan de Groot, who works as a product designer, describes how the use of the BigRep ONE revolutionized the way they create prototypes and designs. They are now able to produce bathtubs and shower trays one-to-one at high levels in about three weeks. This was unthinkable before the introduction of the BigRep ONE.
CHANGING THE INDUSTRY
CJR Propulsion in the UK manufactures steering gear for luxury yachts and work boats, and they use their BigRep ONE to produce patterns for their bespoke propeller designs. The ease of use and time savings allows CJR to be far more competitive and offer faster service to their customers.
INNOVATION BY NOWLAB
NowLab presents the results of their latest innovation combining the capability of the 3D printer BigRep ONE with innovative materials.
By embedding electronics and sensors into PLA printed walls, NowLab pushes the limits of what additive manufacturing is capable of today.
For the first time, they have embedded 3D printed electronics inside larger printed parts.
MONUMENT FOR THE 308
3D PRINTED SCULPTURE
Artist Andreas Greiner talks about his monumental 3D print of a chicken skeleton that he showed at the Berlinerische Galerie. He describes his idea and the printing process on the BigRep ONE, which has the scale and size for such large scale projects.
THE FACTORY OF THE FUTURE IN AMSTERDAM
Discover our “factory of the future” showcase in Amsterdam, presenting the latest in additive manufacturing solutions. We are showing three printers with different setups: high throughput, small serial production, and classic 3D printing up to one cubic meter.
A MODULAR LAMP
FOR CHILDRENS’ ROOMS
3D printing is revolutionizing the manufacturing industry and is in the process of replacing many other production methods. Our design team decided to put this idea to the test by looking at which plastics technologies we could replace with large-scale 3D printing.
