A small component for your car

Technology: FDM
Device: Stratasys Fortus 360mc
Material: ABS-M30

3Dees used to be next door to a garage. Their mechanic came to see if we could print a part that was damaged and could no longer be found anywhere. The gear, about 1cm in diameter, was broken into 2 parts and we were happy to take on the task, which can be categorized as reverse engineering.

First, we created a 3D model of the part. We used an Artec Spider 3D scanner, which can scan with a resolution of 0.1 mm with a point accuracy of 0.05 m. By modifying the scanned parts of the part, we created a 3D model suitable for printing on an industrial 3D printer. The original part was made of solid plastic. For printing the duplicate, we used very durable ABS plastic - M30 on FORTUS 360 mc printer. In a few hours, the garage had a working part and the older model car can continue to serve its happy owner.
