FDM 3D Printed Large Vase

At Cammpro we are always looking to produce 3D models of all shapes and sizes, ornamental or functional. We received a request to 3D Print a large object to demonstrate the Builder3D Extreme 1500 Pro’s large scale additive manufacturing capabilities. Cammpro chose a 3D model of a geometric Vase as it would give a good indication through all axis on what can be achieved. We...

3D Scan and 3D Print heavy duty jigs

The team at Cammpro needed to invest in a new heavy-duty jig to assist with their SLS 3D printing. To remove and install the Nylon12 powder into and from the machine, a trolley with a jig lifts the stainless-steel chamber, which carries 35KG of material. To assist with the high demand of 3D printing another Jig is required. The old jig was manufactured from angle...

Large Format 3D Printing in Australia

Early in 2020 Cammpro Ltd took delivery of a large format FDM 3D Printing Machine from Dutch manufacturer Builder3D. The Builder Extreme 1500 Pro.         The new Extreme 1500 still offers the Builder 3D big-build volume, but it’s slimmer, and on wheels, meaning it’s now capable of fitting into an elevator taking printing on the go.            ...

3D Printed Teeth

In NSW Universities are now using 3D printing to replicate decaying in teeth for students to practice operating on before going into the surgery to work on the real thing. The University approached Cammpro to see if they could help by 3D printing teeth with multiple materials to replicate the hard-outside enamel and the soft decaying material on the inside. Decay in actual teeth are...

3D Printing Solves Issue Sourcing a Hard-to-get Porsche Part

The Porsche 928 was initially planned to be Porsche’s replacement to the venerable, but aging, 911. Evidently, the 928 went on to be its own unique product, sold alongside the 911 for almost 20 years. During the early 1970’s, the popular Porsche 911 was approaching 10 years of age. Due to changing global economies and consumer awareness, the then-current chairman of Porsche, Dr. Ernst Fuhrmann,...

Our Reverse Engineering Abilities Save You Money

Problem to Solution Traditionally it has been financially uneconomical to manufacture low quantities of unique parts. The immense costs involved producing tools for injection molding jigs or the huge costs of 5-axis CNC mills have made if prohibitively expensive to reproduce broken or damaged parts. This often results in the otherwise functional machine being deemed a loss. In more recent years, 3D printing and 3D...
