Product development activities are enhanced when a product is converted from a CAD file to an actual 3D-printed part, which is extremely beneficial for engineering analysis. Meaning, when you can actually see a part and hold a part, engineers and other members of a project team can physically collaborate on the design.
3D-Printing can be very advantageous for customers when working on preliminary designs and also when working on Request For Quote packages or commonly referred to as RFQ.
Printing smaller scale models of a customer’s parts can enhance the design review process and help expedite quoting activities. Printing smaller scale hand held components or assemblies work ideally, as the costs and lead-times are less costly. Larger print size capabilities are available and as per the print sizes listed above.
Huppert Engineering also offers CAD and file transfer services. These include Native file format transfers and we are also capable of receiving OEM data transfers through Trubiquity/Rocket (GM/FCA) and Syncplicity (Ford) among others. We work with the following software: Unigraphics, Solidworks, Catia V5, and other popular CAD drafting software.
