3d printing in Formula 1
Once upon a time an F1 car was made using hand crafted tools shaping metals and cutting and tapping and boring. You needed a lot of patience to work this way where parts came out precise and accurate. Perfected. 
These days Formula 1 cars rely heavily on cad cam and rapid prototyping otherwise known as 3d printing. Car designers have these fantastic machines at there disposal and still they cant seem to make the parts fast enough for the hundreds of iterations of a design for a single part.

There is definately a limit to layer object manufacturing and it looks like that may be reached sooner than expected.

Minimise transport costs by using uk suppliers
When it comes to manufacturing the far east has dominated and to some extent still does. But things are changing for the better. No longer will small manufacturers into research and development need to source their components from china and Taiwan etc. parts can now be bought at much less cost from uk3dprinting firms such as magicmodel who are specialising in producing and manufacturing small batches of hard plastic parts. Obviously accuracy is never going to match that of a precision cnc or injection molded part but it is a great accessible solution for proof of concept. At magicmodel we encourage our customers to try one before  committing to a small batch of say 50-100. This way our customer is able to test their design with very little to no collateral damage.

Just completed Magicmodel 3DPrintUK and hope to see more use for 3dmaps in the future. This 3D Printed United Kingdom was made with the help of Rhino3D and Orcabot technologies.

High res versus low res
Magicmodel 3dprinters are capable of producing parts in 2 resolutions. If you require a quick turnaround and
your part is quite big ie 150mm x 150mm x 150mm say then you ought to opt for the low resolution at 0.25mm per
layer. This is pretty much the default for most fdm based machines as it gives a good balance between quality
and speed. Both resolutions allow for 0% – 100% infill which can also help speed things up whilst preserving
the strength of your part or model

I had some spare #PLA leftover from another #magicmodel job. It was from #Faberdashery and called #Spacemarine Blue.......guess what I made from it?
