Global 3D Labs conducted a session on the Financial and Business aspects of 3D Printing in association with Collab House.
Global 3D labs aims at bridging the gap between ideation and manufacturing by providing high quality and cost effective 3D printers. G3D Labs specializes in manufacturing 3D printers that can be operated and used by multiple users. G3D also aims at evangelizing 3D Printing amongst engineers, researchers, manufacturers and students by holding seminars, talks and workshops for them.
The session began with types of 3D Printers and how they actually work. Besides, a designed was set to be printed right in the start. The participants made the session very interactive.
Later, various fields and applications where 3D printer can be used were discussed. To learn how 3D printing technology is solving problems was enlightening. The pros and cons of this technology were thoroughly discussed, after which the financial aspects were covered.
It was interesting to see how 3D printing can used in a lot of ways and for a lot of applications where the conventional methods fail to deliver.
The design that was set to print was the Batlogo which was done printing before the session ended.
3D printing is one of the most happening technologies. With its minimalistic approach it is out to rupture the functionality of most of the manufacturing and fabrication industries world wide.
Collab House has one of the most active 3D printing communities in the city. Hence we have hosted an amazing workshop on 6th of February at Collab House, hosted by 3Ding.
The agenda included the introduction of various 3D printing technologies currently in use viz.
- Selective laser sintering (SLS)
- Electron Beam Melting
- Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
- Stereo lithography (SL)
Along side the attendees were trained on the different steps while making a 3D model as listed below:
- Design a CAD model of the object.
- Saving the file in .stl format.
- Exporting the file to a 3D printer.
- Hitting on the print button.
- Grab a bite or a cup of coffee while the your desired object gets printed ‘layer by layer’.
- After done with all the layers, take out the print carefully.
The sessions were excellently presented by Surendar Reddy, CEO of 3Ding.
What? A full day workshop on 3D printing
Why? A professional level training on the 3D printing technology
3Ding has come up with an inspirational initiative coated with a creative cream. Rama Krishna Math located in Rajamundry houses a duck which lost one of its leg in an Accident.
Sandeep Reddy, COO of 3Ding was contacted by one of his friends from Rama Krishna Math to do something to help out the poor bird as the caretaker doesn’t have clue on what to do. Team ‘3Ding’, after taking the measurements of limb of the duck, produced an artificial limb using the most happening maker technology ‘3D printing’.
Though creating the 3D design of the limb fetched some time, the whole process of printing the plastic limb took 3 hours.
Collab House is extremely happy to house such an inspirational personnel who could put their humanity in to Creativity to serve a good cause.
Getting featured in prominent news papers in Hyderabad is another recognition for awesome initiative taken up by Team 3Ding.
What? Team 3Ding has 3D printed a leg for a duck.
Why? To experience the ‘Joy Of Giving’, Humanity.
When? 17 December 2015.
