Clients

Think3D has been a great partner for us in supplying COVID-19 test cartridges on-time despite the pandemic challenges. When we came up with a new requirement needing a workforce of more than 25 people, think3D took up the challenge and arranged the workforce within 2 days. I highly recommend think3D for any manufacturing needs.

As a professor doing research on new materials, I needed a strong industry partner to assist us. think3D perfectly fit that bill. think3D team is highly knowledgeable on all manufacturing technologies and the team is very prompt in responding to all our requests. My research has been very successful, thanks to think3D team.


Dr. Karthik Chetan V
Asst. Professor, BITS Pilani

We found issue with one part at the time of assembly and needed a quick replacement. think3D team has quickly responded to our request, redesigned the part and printed it using metal 3D Printing and delivered in 3 days time. The part came out really well and the design was better than that of the actual one.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

One of the most important applications of 3D Printing relating to automotive industry is weight reduction of components. Automotive applications make use of advanced engineering materials and complex geometries in an attempt to reduce weight and improve performance. AM is capable of producing parts from many of the lightweight polymers and metals that are common in the automotive industry.

There are wide variety of applications for 3D Printing in automotive industry. Below are some of the applications – (a) Weight final parts, (b) Complex geometries – prototypes & final parts, (c) Temperature – Testing & final parts (d) Moisture – Testing & final parts (e) Part consolidation – prototyping & final parts. 

3D Printing is used for manufacturing Bellows, Complex Ducting, High Detail Visual Prototypes, Functional Mounting Brackets, 

Material & technology used highly depends on the kind of part being 3D Printed. For under the hood parts, generally SLS 3D Printing is used as it is heat resistant; for interior accessories SLA 3D Printing is used; for air ducts, SLS is used; Industrial SLA is used for full scale panels; DMLS is used for complex metal components; Material jetting is used for manufacturing Bezels and finally, SLA is used for  manufacturing Lights.
