Typically when we talk about low volume production using additive manufacturing technologies, we think of smaller complex parts that can't be easily manufactured with typical manufacturing methods. At RedEye we've had great success in producing very large scale prototypes like the project we did recently building a full-scale turbo-prop aircraft engine model.The engine's gear box includes two sets of gears, which operate two sets of propellers that move in counter rotation to each other.

Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM)An eco-friendly alternative?Designing for sustainability is a hot topic in today’s engineering world. Design software companies are adding tools to help engineers compare manufacturing methods and materials so they can evaluate their design's carbon footprint, executives are insisting that their operations teams adopt just-in-time (JIT) manufacturing techniques and customers are demanding new products that are eco-friendly.Direct Digital Manufacturing "Green"…See More
"You are probably all aware of the RepRap project - although for those of you with professional quality machines it would likely have little appeal, since it is still capable of only lower quality production, but it is evolving rapidly!
Just as iTunes disrupted the music industry and changed the way music is purchased and delivered, digital manufacturing is transforming how plastic parts are purchased, produced and delivered.Digital manufacturing produces tangible low-volume plastic parts without machining, mold tooling, jigs to hold the work in place, fixtures or much manual intervention - all things that dramatically add to the cost of today's traditional manufacturing processes.In addition to the cost and speed benefits for…See More
"Being on the side of selling both systems and services here's the what I've noticed in the last 15 years. Those that start off outsourcing reach a certain point where they are doing a lot parts and/or spending a fair amount on outsourcing…"
