A couple of years ago, a very good friend and leather goods manufacturer, introduced us to the managing director of a prestigious 3D lab located very near where our office is based. Right after this visit, quite a few ideas of how 3D Printing Technology could be applied to the leather goods manufacturing industry came to our mind. 3D Printing Technology and Leather Goods Manufacturing.
These applications may be:
- – Rapid hardware design where designs can be proved and perfected.
- – Advanced prototyping of cases for electronic devices
- – Development of new and innovative reinforcements, especially where the final shape is hard to get with the traditional materials used as reinforcements.
This technology (3D design – render) is also used in order to see the actual shape, measurements and overall look of a particular piece before moving to the physical making of the prototype.
