Technical Paper: 3D Models / 3D Printing in the Hardware Development

Wednesday, 16. May 2018

The use of industrial 3D printing offers the possibility of creating complex, functional geometries to support fast and agile hardware development, with a high degree of design freedom and other advantages. Above all, 3D printing enables the production of small batch sizes at economical unit costs.

3D printing can significantly support agile hardware development for very complex, customer-specific requirements.

A printed mockup of PCBs (Printed circuit boards) for example enables a detailed optimization of the hardware very early in the development process.
