Formlabs has fielded hundreds of requests, evaluated dozens of potential applications for 3D printed products, and is now supporting a handful of projects with high-impact potential. The current priority areas were selected based on clinical demand, technical feasibility, and regulatory implications. Priority areas for focus include test kit swabs, ventilator splitters, and face shields. Once designs have been tested and validated by the medical community, Formlabs has the resources available to scale production to tens of thousands of parts per week. We are ready to engage our internal resources and community of skilled volunteers to produce parts for healthcare providers all over the world.

You are never too old for model building, not even at VMR. Therefore we were looking forward to the challenge to produce a model for the company Breyer from Singen. They needed a 1:10 scale model of a special machine for a trade fair. After preparing the data, all individual components were produced in our 3D printer. For an exhibition model with high demands on the surface, however, there is still no suitable additive process. For this reason, the individual parts were then ground by hand. Then the model was painted and assembled - just like in real model making.

Für Modellbau ist man nie zu alt, auch nicht bei VMR. Daher haben wir uns auf die Herausforderung gefreut ein Messemodell für die Firma Breyer aus Singen anfertigen zu dürfen. Diese benötigten für eine Messe eine Sondermaschine im Maßstab 1:10 als Modell. Nach Aufbereitung der Daten wurden alle Einzelbauteile bei uns im 3D-Drucker hergestellt. Für ein Messemodell mit hohen Ansprüchen an die Oberfläche gibt es jedoch noch kein geeignetes additives Verfahren. Aus diesem Grund wurden die Einzelteile anschließend per Hand geschliffen. Danach wurde das Modell lackiert und zusammengesetzt - wie im richtigen Modellbau eben.

3D printing could and will also turn an entire industry upside down at some point, conventional trades will gain new significance, standards that were previously in force will be called into question, new building materials will be researched, regulations will have to be redefined, whereby sustainability, design and diversity will "turn the market upside down" at reduced costs, especially in the area of architecture.
