As we reach new levels in technological capability, we likewise heighten our expectations for what’s to come. The demand for new and improved devices regenerates seemingly daily, and as core devices evolve, so too must their accessories. For their part, high-end headphone manufacturer Fujikon, is constantly exploring better noise-cancelling functionality, wireless connectivity and sound quality, as well as innovating more attractive products, all with faster time-to-market.

To accelerate their innovation, Fujikon’s R&D team decided to try their hand with 3D printing, and settled on the ProJet® 7000 after testing and evaluating all the leading 3D technologies. A workhorse in the world of Stereolithography, the ProJet 7000 offers Fujikon the sizeable build platform they need, along with the precision, surface finish and material properties required to assemble, drill and screw printed pieces without breaking. Because it uses two lasers of different sizes, the ProJet 7000 enables Fujikon to rapidly create parts while ensuring feature accuracy and allowing choice in layer thickness. This allows Fujikon to test and create samples with complex geometries that they wouldn’t have considered before.

Fujikon reports that 3D printing has made them 62% faster, allowing them to evaluate designs, verify parts and assemblies, and perform acoustic testing for a sharper competitive edge. For more on their experience and details on their transition to 3D printing, read the full case study.

SIU System implements first-ever ProJet 3500 CPXMax for Armenian jewelry client

For centuries Armenian jewelers have been known for their craftsmanship and expertise. You might even say that if there is a single trade that defines Armenia, it is jewelry. Going back to the Ottoman Empire, the jewelers of Sultans were exclusively Armenian, and they held it tight, passing the secrets down to family members. As a result, the magic of beautiful jewelry has long remained an Armenian calling card.

Advanced Aerials removes the mystery from Unmanned Vehicle System development with an assist from Quickparts

In an industry typically shut off by red “Top Secret” stamps and closed-door meetings, Advanced Aerials is doing things a little differently. They’ve put a welcome mat on their door in an effort to not only supply Unmanned Vehicle Systems (UVS) but to perfect their designs and innovate through open-source collaboration. Think of Advanced Aerials’ work as the launching point for creating affordable UVS designs that fulfill the exact requirements of users from military intelligence units to first responders

Historic Windmills Recreated Using 3D Printing

The American Wind Power Center (AWPC) has partnered with WhiteClouds to create scale models of historic windmills using computer aided design and 3D printing. The windmills will be part of a model train display that will be on show in the AWPC Museum. “We plan to build a model train layout of early Lubbock from 1910 to 1950, a time when there were a large number of windmills in this area,” said Coy Harris, Executive Director of the AWPC. “That is also the time when the train came to Lubbock.”
