While many brackets and fixtures are easily made through traditional methods, some shapes may prove difficult or impossible to machine effectively. For example, thin, complex lattices used to optimize weight and performance require multiple machine setups, small tools, and excessive material removal. Creating these brackets and fixtures can be time-consuming and expensive.
Thin, complex geometries pose no challenge for 3D printing. Create intricate, specialized geometries that would often be difficult or impossible to machine at a fraction of the cost.
Build Unique Geometries: Produce light and stiff brackets and fixtures that are strong enough for the job.
Save Money: Lightweight brackets with intricate contours can be inexpensively produced using additive manufacturing. 3D printing these parts also eliminates machining costs.
