The automotive industry is one of the first areas to see the benefits of 3D printing technology. Our specialists often receive orders from this area with a request to produce one or another detail. Often these are not just 3D prototypes, but also end products.

This time, we were asked to print the car's air vents. The client provided us 3D models. 3D printing has been done by an advanced "Mass Portal" 3D printer operating on FDM technology. This 3D printer provides extremely fast and high-quality 3D prints. For this inquiry was chosen PETG plastic, which is perfect for the intended printing function. PETG plastic is robust, durable, but has some elasticity, which ensures the component's durability in the car.

3D printing of car parts is a fast and reliable way to produce not only 3D prototypes but also end products.

3D printing technology: FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling)

3D printing material: PETG

3D scanning - an area that is widely used not only in conventional mechanics or art but also in the manufacture of vacuum toilets systems! This time we received an order from "Jets Rail", which is a global company that develops, manufactures and sells vacuum systems based on unique patented technology. At their request, we performed toilet bowl 3D scan and conversion to STEP file format.

3D scans were made with precision Artec 3D scanners - "Eva" and "Space Spider". Combining these two 3D scanners we are able to achieve the highest work speed and the most accurate results. The "Artec Eva" 3D scanner quickly captures common body geometry and forms. This scanner 3D point accuracy is up to 0.1 mm. The "Space Spider" 3D scanner has been used to scan attachment points. This scanner ensures accuracy up to 0.05 mm. In this way, the full 3D model of the toilet bowl was quickly and qualitatively digitized.

The scanned 3D model was converted from STL to STEP format to allow the client to use this model in CAD software and perform product development and measuring. We are glad that we are getting more and more inquiries from foreign companies who trust their important works for us!

We are always happy to be able to contribute to every innovative project. This time one of these is the interactive exposition of Kedainiai Museum “The Gold Age of Kedainiai in the 17th-century citizen stories. In collaboration with advanced digital communication companion Multimediamark, we implemented this exposition that has no analogs in Lithuania, presenting the period of Kedainiai gold age.

This remarkable historical period of great importance to the city of Kedainiai is told by this new exposition. Not making a mistake by saying 'tells'. The main characters of the exposition - seven 3D printed sculptures of Kėdainiai citizens, placed in different exposition places telling different stories. This is how the very rich history of Kedainiai region has been described in a very original way. In this interactive model, you can see the old town of Kedainiai with objects that stood in the 17th century, extending into the labyrinths of streets, typical building, and natural relief.

The most advanced and accurate 3D printers - Form 2 and Zortrax M200 - were used to implement this project. Seven main characters were printed with SLA 3D printing technology because it is capable of restoring even the smallest parts of the object in detail. FDM technology 3D printer and HIPS plastic were used to print buildings, bridges, and ships. This plastic is perfect for printing architectural models because it does not lose its accuracy due to temperature factors and maintains a particularly white color during printing, making it easy to prepare models for painting.

The printed parts were painted and collected in a single exposition. We are very pleased to contribute to this project and to cooperate with Multimediamark company professionals. Created together, the innovative exposition delights the visitors of Kėdainiai Regional Museum. This project reaffirms that 3D printing of expositions, art installations, or sculptures is a great way to implement innovative projects quickly, accurately, and at the lowest cost.

3D printing technology: Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and Stereolitography (SLA).

3D printing material: HIPS plastic, liquid resin.

A simple part of a car may not seem so simple when it comes to measuring its precise geometry. This time at customer's request has been performed 3D scanning of car wheel carrier.

For this case has been used “Artec Space Spider” 3D scanner. With the help of this 3D scanner, the wheel carrier was scanned with an accuracy of 0.05 mm. Accuracy is the most important part of this request because the customer needed very high precision 3D model with very precise fixing points locations. With such a computer model, it is possible to perform various computer manipulations, reverse engineering processes, perform project improvements and design the necessary vehicle construction units.

3D scanning of car parts ensures not only precise but also the results. 3D scanning service was done in 1 working day.
