3D Printers

WB Engineering has been partnered with 3D Systems since 2008 providing Florida with the most diverse portfolio of Professional and Production Printers. These are not your hobbies printers, when you are serious about engineering, product development and manufacturing, you need equipment you can count on.

3D printing technology has been around for decades. 3D printing began with the invention of the stereolithography (SLA) method. The SLA method worked by concentrating a beam of ultraviolet light onto the surface of a vat of resin. The UV light drew out the 3D model layer by layer until the entire model was complete. 3D printing has come a long way with both commercial and personal use 3D printers available.

3D printing builds objects by layers. A digital file called a Computer Aided Design (CAD) is translated by A 3D modeling program into a language the printer understands by “slicing” the design into hundreds or thousands of horizontal layers. As the 3D printer reads the file, it creates each layer as specified, blending them together so the resulting three-dimensional object has no telltale signs of visible layers.
3D printers can save companies time and energy with product prototyping. Current 3D printers are so fast, companies are using them to mass produce their products for short runs or custom manufacturing. As 3D printer speeds continue to increase and the price continues to go down, companies will use this technology more and more to produce their products quicker and cheaper than ever before.
3D Systems is a leading, global provider of 3D content-to-print solutions including personal, professional and production 3D printers, integrated print materials and on-demand custom parts services for professionals and consumers alike. In line with our commitment to democratize access and accelerate adoption of affordable 3D printing we also provide creative content development, design productivity tools, curation services and content downloads.

Our expertly integrated solutions replace, displace and complement traditional development and manufacturing methods and reduce the time and cost of designing new products by printing real parts directly from digital input. 3D Systems solutions are used to rapidly design, communicate, prototype and produce functional parts and products, empowering our customers to create with confidence.

Rapid prototyping helps to overcome many manufacturing and design hurdles, including:

-Difficulty meeting final design deadlines.

-Budgetary overruns due to design iterations.

-Keeping intellectual property confidential.

-The Inability to demonstrate product models to potential customers quickly.

We believe that prototyping is pivotal to the product development process. Having the technology to create prototypes in-house allows us to fabricate your parts quickly and at a competitive price. With several printers by 3D Systems at our location, utilizing different technologies including multi-jet modeling technology (MJM provides superior resolution with 0.0016” or 0.0012” layer thickness and surface finish which surpasses that of higher resolution modelers), not only will your prototype look great but it will be extremely accurate.
