Indian company develops new 3D printing App for building objects larger than the build volume


There are actually many desktop 3D printers rising on the market, however most of them have terribly little build volume that limits the sort of elements that may be 3d printed. Earlier, Makerbot has found a technique or a way to build an object larger than the build volume of a 3D printer, and filed a patent. However another company, the Indian startup Centre for Computational Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (CCTech), a CAD and CAM development company, has come back up with a replacement application “3DPrintTech” that helps the maker to create objects larger than the build volume of any 3D printer.

3DPrintTech is a free app and works as CAD plugin with Autodesk discoverer 2014, AutoCAD 2014 and SolidWorks 2014. 3DPrintTech is meant to print larger objects on a desktop 3D printer quickly. The application will divide the style of enormous object into little connectable parts, in a jiffy. The App additionally provides the user, a choice to manage the cylindrical connectors as per his demand. User will outline the connective in terms of radius, length and taper angle. User additionally manages the space between the connectors, distance between connective and object surface.

The 3DPrintTech app additionally provides the practicality to pack little objects in one print batch. 3DPrintTech app features a feature referred to as ‘3D Packing’ that collects those little parts and packs them in a given build volume. “In our benchmark testing, we found that for several cases our 3D packing technology helped to scale back the 3D printing batches from ten to one. This is positively aiming to facilitate manufacturers to print a lot of objects in less time and by investing lesser cash.” notes the team.

In addition, the app additionally provides associate interface to feature your custom printer and lots of utility functions like exportation processed objects to 3D printable STL file, Explode objects for fast examination, scaling the item for unit conversion or fitting into printer.

Sandip Jadhav, (Co-Founder & Business Executive, CCTech) says, “3DPrintTech was built to facilitate Makerbot ‘s to boost productivity by a nice degree. It’ll additionally facilitate the 3D print club to push the envelope by creating massive 3D objects.”
