What is 3D Digital Design? A Closer Look at the Technology

3D Innovations

3D digital design is where we start in terms of the product development timeline. After the initial product idea is brought to us by the inventor, we then take their idea and transform it into a 3D digital design. This 3D design allows us to refine and develop a manufacturable design.

New design strategies to inspire sustainable living

3D Perspectives

Design is ultimately the art of the possible. As Etienne Souriau says: Design “is a state of mind seeking to harmonize human environment.” It also offers broad human-centered methods for bottom-up, participative design collaborations. Instead, design can resolve the conflict.

Design Rules for AM

Wohlers Talk

Little by little, companies are learning that it can be very different to design for additive manufacturing (DfAM). Just as important are design rules and guidelines to reduce trial ‘n error among engineers and designers. The previous guitar stand was designed by Olaf Diegel, an associate consultant and DfAM instructor at Wohlers Associates. The stand is cleverly designed to fold and unfold, as shown.

Design metamorphosis

3D Perspectives

The posture of design has changed. With the world around us being “artificial” (as we have examined in our two recent posts “ Re-generating our world ” and “ Engaging our world with Re-generative design ,” art and design must now contribute to our re-foundation, our re-generation. Design, as the art applied to industry, is an industry also. The difference is not the opposition to science it is the way design questions the world and its attitude towards nature.
