The Advantages of 3D Printing in Architecture

Posted By: my3dconcepts.com Times Read: 763 Comments: 0

Architecture is famous for being a very competitive field of work. Clients have a variety of architects to choose from as for every project there is a large number of applicants. Therefore, it is essential that you impress the clients and make your proposal stand out from the crowd. 

Additive manufacturing has gained popularity amongst people in this field exactly for this reason. It offers a new, more interesting and memorable way to presents conceptual models to potential customers. Let’s take a look at some of the main advantages that 3D printing has to offer to Architecture. 

1) 3D printing is the perfect substitution to boring pictures and computer models, and makes it easier to present and communicate ideas. 

2) Making 3D printed models is cheaper and easier compared to traditional methods. While a handmade model made from carton or wood could take up to months to build, with 3D printing it takes just a few hours and it can decrease your costs up to 75%. 

3) Thanks to 3D printing, architects can now try hundreds of designs and conceptual ideas before choosing the perfect one. What is more, 3D printing makes the identification of potential problems and issues possible, which in return can make the process faster and more effective.  

4) Apart from the need to load the material into the printer and sometimes polish or remove supports from final products, 3D printing allows architects to fully digitalize their work. 

5) 3D printing is not only more effective, easy, cost efficient, faster and impressive for your clients, but It is also better for the environment as it uses only as much material as is needed to build the object (there is no waste of raw materials compared to using traditional methods and building them from carton or other materials).

BOLT PRO 3D PRINTERThe Bolt Pro is a professional 3D printer designed and created by Leapfrog. This printer is large, reliable and precise. Because of features such as closed printing environment and equipped HEPA carbon filter, it is suitable for both schools and offices as you should no longer worry about any harmful fumes emitted while printing. Unlike other 3D printers on the market, the Bolt Pro has an open system as it does not limit you to work with specific filament manufacturer. What is more, the Dual Extrusion System (IDEX) and the capability to print 360 degrees, as well as the sync- and mirror mode printing options, not only allow you to use multiple colours but also to print several objects at once. There is no doubt that such features make 3D printing much more efficient and cost effective!  KEY FEATURESMulti-material printingE3d hotends allows printing with most major filaments in the marketIndustrial grade build frame for stabilityIntelligent user interface with easy wireless controlIndependent dual extrusion system for mirror-mode printingHeated print bed with buildtak flexplate for easy object removalHEPA carbon filter filters harmful fumesINCLUDED WITH THE BOLT PRO 3D PRINTERSlicer software – simplify3dQuick start guideLeapfrog 3d printers usb key After long testing and engineering the BOLT PRO was built with high strength laser cut parts to ensure for high quality prints and better longevity. It has minimum setup requirements and intuitive learning. The user can operate the printer either through the convenient 7-inch touch screen or through any other personal device using Wi-Fi. What is more, thanks to the built-in camera, you can now observe the 3D printing on any device, make videos, and have more control throughout the process!The high-grade aluminium frame makes the BOLT PRO stand out from the other printers in the market with perfect stability and less issues during the printing process. The BOLT PRO’s easily removable aluminium heat bed can reach temperature of up to 90 degrees. This ensures better heat distribution for hard to print materials that need better layer adhesion. However, this 3D printer also offers another solution for complex parts – the Buildtak Flexplate which turns the removal of 3D printed objects into a child’s game. The BOLT PRO is equipped with unique direct drive Independent Dual Extruders which can move independently from each other for clean dual prints. What is more, the unique swappable nozzles give the user the freedom to print sync- or mirror mode and to work with any filaments available on the market. PrintMe-3D is the official distributor of Leapfrog for Bulgaria!       1) Fujitsu    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31Q7TMumsys 2) Machay Hospital Surgery Simulation With Bolt Pro    3) Stellenbosch Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences ..
