3D Printing Uses and Design Consultancy

3D Printing Uses and Design Consultancy

3D Classroom

3D printing has many uses for industrial, artistic, and personal needs. 3D models can be created to make replacement parts like gears, springs, and screws, or they can be used to make creative expression. Whatever the need is, 3D printing provides an affordable solution. When designing a 3D model, there are important considerations to make like material, method of assembly, and time. Understanding how to apply these can be supported by a 3D printing fabrication studio.

Bits to Atoms

Bits to Atoms is a 3D printing design fabrication and consultancy firm. It is one of the first firms to have embraced the 3D printing technology and helps clients to understand where 3D printing can best help them. Many businesses have used Bits to Atoms services for implementing their own 3D printing processes within their operations. This is a valuable service as complications can be solved quickly without much trial and error.

Why Consultants are Needed

Consultants are as equal a part in 3D printing as any other newly deployed technology. These firms provide businesses, educational institutions, and organizations with information and resources to get started quickly while avoiding any problems. Consultants are experienced with the full process of a 3D print from design, to selecting material, to printing, and also to assembly. These components are all necessary to consider when working with a design as they each affect the outcome of the next step. Consultants understand this process and can provide detailed information to help guide others to the next part of the design.

What Services Consultants Provide

3D printing consultants provide many different services. They can provide design services, printing and fabrication services, or information.

Design services can be helpful with incorporating 3D printing within an already designed product. This service can help businesses to find the most effective point in the production process to deploy 3D printing.

Printing services are useful for educational institutions and organizations which need a third-party to handle the maintenance of printers and resources while still having access to learn and teach 3D printing skills and technology. These services can also provide small batch consumers with the option of having an affordable manufacturing option instead of taking extra risk in buying more inventory than needed.

Information that consultants provide is invaluable. This information can help businesses, institutions, and organizations to decide which printers are best for their application, which materials would perform best, what kind of assembly steps might be needed, and with any other questions. Deciding between metal or plastic materials means deciding between a more durable product with a greater cost and production time and a more accessible product line. Consultants can help provide the answers to these challenging questions and get a 3D printing operation moving forward quickly.

3D printing is a bustling technology. Many have been quick to adopt it and learn how it operates. Bits to Atoms is one of the first consultancy firms focused on 3D printing. It provides fabrication and design services to help businesses, colleges and universities, and organizations to understand how 3D printing works, how to make a design, and how to get a final print made and assembled.
