3D printers have been considered to be many things. Too expensive, too difficult to pick up, just a novelty. Regardless of which, today, the technology has become increasingly prominent not just in research and prototyping, but as a way to produce physical products and create high production and marketing value for brands and events.
SOME 3D PRINTING EFFORTS ARE SO UNASSUMING THEY BLEND IN
Clients are incorporating 3D printing into their branding efforts in various ways, some 3D printing efforts are so unassuming one might not be able to tell the difference between 3D printed and not.
QwikFab recently collaborated to create a 3D printed train set that was fully functional and revolved around a track at the shopping mall, Square 2 for Christmas.
AND IT MAKES SENSE. IF A PIECE OF THE TRAIN DOESN'T FIT, OR BREAKS, YOU JUST 3D PRINT IT
More and more, businesses are adopting 3D printing as a means of creating products that would not be financially or creatively feasible. And it makes sense, if a piece of the train doesn't fit, or a part falls off, you just 3D print it. A carpenter by comparison -- how it used to be made, would have to rework it by hand and the full cost is bared again.
QwikFab designed and 3D printed the parts in a short period of less than 14 days.
