3D Printing is Scalar Manufacturing's first in-house manufacturing service. Applications for 3D Printing include scale models, proofs of concept, and functional prototypes. The low cost of 3D Printing provides for an effective alternative to injection molding, when a mold is required for a potentially unproven prototype. The ability to customize even makes 3D Printing a production process. 3D Printing is also useful for obsolete plastic or metal components, which may be very expensive to re-manufacture.
3D Printing's recent popularity comes in part from the ease of design. However, understanding that complex designs may be more time-consuming than an engineering team can afford, Scalar Manufacturing offers 3D CAD services both for 3D printed designs and designs to be prototyped with 3D printing, then scaled to injection molding or die casting.
