Stratasys Direct Manufacturing empowers its customers to push the limits of what is possible. Across industries, from aerospace and automotive to Hollywood entertainment, 3D printing is truly changing the way things are made.
Bolin partnered with Stratasys Direct Manufacturing to produce a series of short films demonstrating how the partnership between the service bureaus and their customers goes beyond just making parts, to truly shape the way various industries think about manufacturing.
Stratasys Direct Manufacturing works directly with the Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute on an ongoing basis to produce printed models of hearts directly from CT scans taken in the Austin, TX office. The hearts can be printed and delivered to the physicians in a matter of hours, enabling the physicians to study the models before performing open-heart surgery on a patient.
Stratasys Direct Manufacturing partners with Legacy Effects, a physical effects studio in Burbank, CA, to take the designers’ visions to the silver screen through the wonder of 3D printing. One of the largest projects to date, wherein the studio designed and produced all of the suits and physical effects for the 2013 Guillermo del Toro blockbuster, Pacific Rim, gave Legacy Effects an opportunity to put its passion for 3D printing on display.
When Structural Integrity Engineering set out to design Orbis International’s next-generation Flying Eye Hospital, Stratasys Direct Manufacturing partnered with Orbis’ engineers to create a 3D-printed solution using FDM technology. The resulting air duct, manufactured using Stratasys Ultem thermoplastic material, provided an economic advantage, while also measuring up to the design’s complex geometry, reducing the project’s part count and weight, and still meeting all mandatory FAA regulations.
