A great idea to have a 3D product printed, but no design? We are happy to help you with our article to develop your expertise and experience!
To be able to make a 3D print, a 3d product modeling is needed. Such a design can be made by us based on an existing product, 2D drawing, image or even a sketch. Ideal, when 3D printing is the way to realize a product or idea, but no digital file is available. After an agreement on the design, the product can of course also be 3D printed by us if desired.
From sketch to CAD file
You can draw a 3D model based on a sketch or photo. Such a model is designed in a digital file that can be printed, a so-called CAD file. CAD stands for Computer-Aided Design. Files in this format are used to design 2D drawings or 3D models. The files are created with specific CAD software. The final CAD file will form the basis for customizing the object to your liking.
Above all, with a good end result and a satisfied customer. The 3D design service has a number of distinctive advantages:
- High-quality 3D models for a perfect 3D print.
- Think along with you throughout the entire process to make your idea feasible.
- Work with various CAD programs and choose the software that fits seamlessly with your 3D assignment.
- After converting it into a digital file, improve the 3D design until it meets your wishes.
The 3d modeling process
Do you own apart, an idea, sketch, or image, but no 3D design of it? No problem. The 3D design experts are happy to help you out. They use reverse engineering to create a digital file that is printable. They do this by means of a 3D scan or drawing a digital 3D model. Do you want to have the model 3D printed afterwards? Then they will immediately proceed with the process for you.
How does 3D design work?
The designers create a 3D model based on your idea. A sketch with information about the idea is sufficient for the design. Of course it is also possible to supply an original part. First, draw the shape of the object in 3D and translate it into digital information. You can do this in a design program in which the model is saved as a CAD file in STL format. Such a CAD file is required to be able to print the model with a 3D printer. Also discuss the options for printing the object beforehand, if desired. Think of type of technique, choice of materials and optimization for 3D printing. This way you know for sure that you achieve the end result that you want.
What kind of objects can you 3D design?
Basically all kinds of objects. You can design very small objects in 3D, but also larger objects. 3D models can vary from a ring to vehicle or boat parts.
All companies are feeling the effects of the Corona crisis. No customer visits, no trade fairs, no personal face-to-face discussions make sales significantly more difficult and 3d digital designs makes the process easy.
