3D printing vs. traditional manufacturing

Posted by Luxexcel on Nov 12, 2015 2:40:48 PM

Sometimes it is hard to decide which technology fits your project needs. On one end you have the traditional manufacturing technologies like injection molding and milling and on the other end more new technologies like 3D printing. Each manufacturing method has its own design challenges. To incorporate new technologies, like 3D printing or additive manufacturing, your company should branch out and it might be needed to slightly adjust your design process. If you do so it will result in a design process which completely utilizes the capabilities of 3D printing.

3D printed virtual reality headset

Posted by Luxexcel on Jul 9, 2015 1:33:00 PM

Delft University of Technology student D van den Oord created a 3D printed VR headset with 3D printed optics. Virtual reality headsets are a rapidly growing market, it allows users to be in a virtual world, which feels like they are actually there. The principles are based on the phenomenon called immersion, in this case your brain thinks that what you see is actually real. The effect is mainly created by three factors: stereoscopic 3D, head tracking and a wide field of view.
