Konica Minolta 3D Scanning Labs announced its new rapid prototyping service. The company is now offering 3D printing services with the addition of 3D Systems’ Projet™ HD 3000 3D Production System. The Projet™ suits a range of applications including concept development, design validation, form and fit analysis, molding and casting patterns, investment casting of jewelry and other fine feature applications.
In addition to the new rapid prototyping service, 3D Scanning Labs offers high-accuracy 3D scanning and metrology, onsite 3D scanning, reverse engineering to native CAD formats, and dimensional inspection. The new addition of 3D printing services opens up an array of possibilities for prototype testing and development for advanced engineering, manufacturing, and jewelry applications.
Stated Jim Clark, Business Manager at Konica Minolta 3D Scanning Labs, “The high quality parts produced by the ProJetare ideally matched to the high quality, high detail 3D scan data our equipment produces.”
The Projet™ HD 3000 3D Production System offers the option of two modes, High Definition (HD) and Ultra High Definition (UHD), for applications ranging from prototypes and concepts to direct castable models. For direct castable models of fine jewelry and other components, the UHD mode is unmatched in its ability to handle delicate features and produce detailed parts and patterns. The high speed and exceptional surface quality of the standard HD mode is ideal for a wide variety of applications including concept development, design verification, form-fit testing, and product presentations.
