The Building Blocks of the 3D World

The Building Blocks of the 3D World

Objet is has recently illustrated how its industry leading 3D Printing technology can be used in the product design stage of LEGO products at this year's LEGO® World 2012. From February 16th19th, the Bella Center (in Copenhagen, Denmark) housed over 16 trucks loaded with models, Lego bricks, and news from Copenhagen.




“The LEGO brick is born digital on a computer as a CAD drawing and is converted into a physical brick during the manufacturing processes,” said Kenneth Wested Laursen, head of the LEGO Prototyping Department.

3D Printers are extremely beneficial in the product development process. From the initial 3D CAD file, to the 3D printing process, reverse engineering process and final stages of the finished 3D model, 3D Printers have helped Lego design some of its most complex pieces.

“The Objet 3D printer is a critical component in the LEGO development phase. It helps us in getting physical elements for checking the design, build-ability and functionality at a very early point in production,” said Laursen.

The video above, provided by LEGO, shows some of their designers producing rapid prototypes for Disney PIXAR's Cars on Objet’s Eden 3D printer.

The video below shows how Objet shows kids exactly how LEGO transform their product ideas and 3D designs into functioning prototypes in rapid time.

Objet's cost effective, highly precise 3D Printers use inkjet-based technology to print micron-thin layers of various materials onto a “build tray.” Each layer is then cured with UV light and which allows each part to be ready for use immediately after printing.  The 3D Printing process produces rapid prototypes with extraordinary precision and allows for any geometry (this includes moving parts, hollow shapes, overhangs, thin walls). Desktop printers (like the Objet24) eliminate the outsourcing of parts and allow you to keep your ideas within your walls only.
