Auro is experienced in 3D printing from idea to a complete product. There is a lot of work behind good, functional products and components using 3D printing, from drawing to construction making the components printable. Taking into account heat, cooling and shrinkage which can easily be overlooked when using 3D print without the proper experience.
We use 3D printing to a large extent in rapid prototyping and production of small batch parts for larger products in an industrial context. These small batch parts will be expensive to produce mechanically, and printing gives new possibilities regarding straight edges, components being cast together, indentations and hollowing for external components, which mechanical construction struggles with. Complex hollow spaces can be printed with a water-soluble support material, which later washes away. This makes 3D printing eligible for more complex compositions in production of components. Printing is also a cost-efficient method for production of small batch parts and prototypes, especially when it comes to advanced and detailed components.
