How Our Customers Did It:

Jay leno uses end-to-end 3D solutions to achieve the impossible in custom car renovation

Jay Leno's Garage

Challenge

Find and fabricate replacement parts for classic and hand-built cars, some of them more than 100 years old, using advanced scanning and 3D tools.

Solution

Using a Faro scanning arm and Geomagic Design X, and 3D Systems On-Demand Parts Manufacturing Services, produced SLS parts in Duraform HST Nylon material.

Benefit

The retrofit parts from 3D Systems fit perfectly, and the increased strength of the SLS-printed parts means that it will be harder to break them going forward.

NASA

Challenge

Deliver complete as-built 3D data of NASA’s most powerful liquid-fuelled rocket, the Apollo engine, without any legacy 2D blueprints or 3D CAD data

Solution

3D Systems' Geomagic Solutions software for reverse engineering, combined with an ATOS Triple Scan and TRITOP system for scanning

Benefit

With an accurate, as-built 3D definition of the F-1 engine, NASA teams can immediately use the data for analysis, clearance and reproduction of parts
