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.
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.
