3D Printed Fossils

Pictured below are 3D printed fossils of a new crocodyliform species called Paluxysuchus newmani.  The original fossils were discovered by field crews from Southern Methodist University (SMU) and the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, and studied by research scientist Thomas Adams of SMU.  The fossils were laser scanned and reconstructed in the Visualization Lab in […]

3D Printing for Injection Molded Parts Design Validation

More Complex Injection Molded Design - Back Side View

It Pays To Prototype One of the most practical applications of high resolution PolyJet 3D Printing is for the validation of injection molded parts design.  Will the parts fit and function as intended?  With injection mold tooling costs running from $5,000 up to over $50,000 – it pays to prototype. Now you can leverage PartSnap’s […]

Scanned, Prototyped and CNC Machined

A client needed to replicate a part no longer in production. The part was first scanned. A model of the part was prototyped using our Objet 3D Printer. The printed prototype allowed our client to verify form, fit and function of the threads. Finally, the CAD model was CNC machined by a 3rd-party partner vendor. PartSnap […]
