Additive Manufacturing, AR and COVID-19

The global manufacturing industry is reeling from the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak. The mega-factories we rely on are experiencing shortages of personnel and raw materials for production. With the shortages of basic medical products like PPEs and respirators, it’s evident that manufacturing plays an important role in battling this virus and future pandemics. So where does industrial 3D printing, also know as additive manufacturing (AM), fit into the manufacturing ecosystem? And what benefits can the AM industry provide?

For those of you unfamiliar with the term, additive manufacturing is defined as the process of joining materials to make objects from 3D model data, usually layer upon layer, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing methods. Right now, we are seeing many 3D printing businesses step up to the plate to provide masks and respirators to personnel on the front lines. The additive manufacturing process provides the ability to produce on-demand and the flexibility to rapidly adapt and change—for instance, change a design to meet a current need. This can all be done without retooling a factory, cutting time and costs.

With the use of 3D model data, designers can adapt, customize and simplify designs. And with the use of augmented reality/spatial computing, design teams can collaborate on design changes from anywhere—whether they are in the same room or working remotely. Experts are already predicting that the office of the future will include more remote collaboration.

Interested in planning for the future? makeSEA is an intellectual property capture platform combined with the worlds most accessible AR content publishing and collaboration suite. makeSEA provides a project-based workflow to store evolving content relating to any subject matter, including a living document repository that tracks all contributions and changes over time for attribution. It is ideal for documenting everything from school projects, to architecture and design, creative arts, trade shows and branding, technical designs, and real-world scans at any scale —the applications are widespread. Catapult is the companion application to makeSEA. The Catapult App enables AR visualization and collaboration between Magic Leap (AR) users.

Sign up for a free makeSEA account. With the addition of the makeSEA Catapult App, found on Magic Leap World, you can share and collaborate with anyone, anywhere. Learn more here.

Flexion Hinge

It’s recommended to use a flexible material (PETG, BDP, etc.). PLA breaks too quickly. The bending part needs to be as thin as possible in order to last for a while - larger thickness will cause more stress

Hex Box

This one piece box with a flexible hinge comes in a variety of useful sizes and shapes. Great for storing and organizing those small items that always seem to get misplaced.

Interlocking Hinge

This collection has a hinge solution for almost every need. The hinge prints in one piece. The two parts are interlocking (can’t be taken apart).
