Challenge: Designed by Megafun using the charming and cheeky animated characters of Studio MDHR’s Cuphead videogame, the zoetrope required 270 detailed models for ACMI motion picture exhibition.
Challenge: The Covid-19 virus has had an unprecedented impact on society. The healthcare system has borne a disproportionately large share of this disruption and has had to change its protocols and standard operating procedures on-the-fly as providers seek solutions to address new requirements for safety. In an effort to address the implications for faculty and staff using shared shuttle programs, buses needed to be fitted with custom-made sneeze guards to protect at risk bus drivers and maintain appropriate distancing while travelling.
Challenge: Established in the early 1940’s, Maton is Australia’s longest running and most successful guitar manufacture. In recent years, Maton have explored new shapes, materials and specifications through their research and development. One of the outcomes being the integration of Additive Manufacturing with their conventional processes to manufacture a new bridge pin design.
Challenge: Ropes Edge is an American start-up company dedicated to supplying innovative safety equipment that protects rope from hazardous abrasive edges used in rescue and rigging systems.
Dirk Dorenbros, owner of Ropes Edge, utilises HP MJF 3D Printing for prototyping and Additive Manufacturing. Based in America, Dirk wanted to expand globally, without incurring distribution and warehouse expenses.
Challenge: As 3D printing materials improve, it is increasingly being used for artistic installations worldwide. Recently, the Jenny Sabin Studio completed an architectural installation that incorporates artificial intelligence with a unique exoskeleton. The design comprises of rods and over 1,000 nodes, with each node being a slightly different shape. and requiring a unique serial code.
Challenge: Modaflex needed to take a working replica to the 800 hospitals that perform knee replacements. He also needed an efficient path to production.
GoProto helped Modaflex to determine the best method to develop functional prototypes, injection tooling, and injection moulded parts to fit his team’s specifications.
