Case Study: 3D Printing and Reverse Engineering Reduces Development Costs for a Label Placement Tool

Design engineering company ReitlingerEngineering GmbH+Co. KG, Weinstadt-Endersbach, was able to use reverse engineering and 3D printing to develop a labelling tool to aid in label placement on their product.  This produced a flexible, fast and inexpensive solution compared to alternative methods.

Case Study: Hama: Innovative accessories are now quicker to market thanks to 3D printing

There is hardly an electronic device for which Hama doesn't have at least one suitable accessory in its range – and available virtually anywhere. The speed at which electronic devices are brought to market also sets the pace at Hama. This also goes for product development, where an x400 3D printer from German RepRap is used to shorten the development times of both the product and the packaging, as well as reduce costs.

Case Study: GRR x1000 makes prototyping easy for automotive manufacturing

Use of German RepRap’s new 3D printer, the x1000 has enabled TAKATA PlasTec GmbH to considerably reduce development costs and time for prototype production.  Sample parts can be created during development in order to implement installation trials or concept tests in-house or at customer sites.
