The benefits of UV curing in 3D modelling

The benefits of UV curing in 3D modelling
Design teams test the aerodynamics of a Formula 1 car by putting a prototype in a wind tunnel. Using a full-size model in the testing process can be expensive and time-consuming, so development engineers often use smaller scale 3D models during testing - but how can they be sure that the prototype will be up to scratch? Simon Gibbs, Product Specialist at Intertronics, explains how design engineers can benefit from UV curing when 3D printing prototypes.

From 2D to 3D: the way forward for cities under pressure

From 2D to 3D: the way forward for cities under pressure
What might tomorrow’s cities look like? To make predictions of the future is to move on treacherous terrain. That’s OK, let’s be bold. The picture above shows a city’s lower airspace is a regulatory greenfield waiting to be conquered by autonomous services, to the benefit of its residents.
