Proof of concept and product design
3D Print Vancouver helps individuals and companies test the viability of their product ideas. We use rapid design and prototyping cycles (literally designing one day and testing parts the next) to illuminate the challenges and opportunities for turning it into a product. At the end of the project you will have several physical variations of your idea and a report on the most promising development pathways, the components used, and all source files.
Mold, die, tool, jig design and 3D printing
We work with companies to design molds, dies, tools, and jigs used in vacuum forming, bending, product assembly, and other manufacturing processes. We can even make flexible silicone molds for chocolate and candy. Prototype on 3D printed tooling to get buy-in from your team and your customers. Once the design is finished, we can work directly with your machinist to ensure they receive files that are ready to cut.
Many customers come to us with obsolete parts: light covers, antique radio knobs, vintage car ornaments, cupboard protectors, the list goes on. If you deliver a sample or a photograph of the part to us, we can reverse engineer it and deliver you a digital file and a 3D printed replica. Our affordable service is perfect for restoration enthusiasts, collectors, and home owners.
3D printed fixtures and enclosures
We design and 3D print custom electronic enclosures, face plates, and other fixtures. Send us samples of your components and we will design around it to ensure that every part fits. Whether you need one beautiful box for a trade show or one hundred boring brackets, we've got you covered. With 3D printing, you can change the design as often as you need.
