SOLIDWORKS Supports VSHAPER 5-Axis Machine ProductionAgnieszka
VERASHAPE has been cooperating with world-renowned enterprises for many years, supporting their production processes. VSHAPER 3D Printing solutions support customers from different branches of industry in rapid prototyping and small-lot production processes, facing the challenges of contemporary industry. VERASHAPE is currently working on “Globally innovative additive printer” with the financial support from The National Centre for Research and Development. The company is also supported by SOLIDWORKS software.
VERASHAPE has chosen to work on their projects in virtual environment with the support of SOLIDWORKS solutions which help constructors on every stage of 3D model preparation. This attitude helps to standardize the way the documentation is prepared. Moreover, the virtual model creates a base for all other processes connected with the production of 3D Printers.
To create VSHAPER 3D Printers VERASHAPE team uses multiple SOLIDWORKS modules: Simulation and Flow Simulation, Composer and PDM.
Designed in SOLIDWORKS, VSHAPER 5-Axis MACHINE transforms the way people think about 3D Printing. Thanks to 5-axis kinematics equipped with tilting rotary working platform – one can forget about the conventional layer-by-layer printing method.
VSHAPER 5-Axis Machine enables:
• Indexed 5-axis printing, enhancing the conventional layer-by-layer printing method to transfer the print plane to another surface that was printed earlier.
• Simultaneous 5-axis printing that moves away from the conventional layer-by-layer printing method and allows creating spatial models on a three-dimensional surface, by using all the machine axes simultaneously.
• Working with multiple materials in one process, making it possible to make models from hard material, reinforced with high-strength material and printed elastomeric seals.
The creation of VSHAPER 5-AXIS MACHINE is supported by SOLIDWORKS solutions at the stage of preparing the product presentation as well. SOLIDWORKS Visualize allows the user to prepare realistic graphics based on a 3D source model.
SOLIDWORKS Visualize application is the perfect solution for all those who appreciate the highest quality of images and animations received, and at the same time easy to use and intuitive software like SOLIDWORKS – says Arkadiusz Piech, SOLIDWORKS Technical Specialist from CADWorks.
