The Hyrel 3D Printer: A Big Nerd Ranch Tech Talk

The Hyrel 3D Printer: A Big Nerd Ranch Tech Talk

Daniel Hutchison used a Kickstarter to build a rugged 3D printer that seeks to overcome the common problems with 3D printing.

The talk goes over traditional manufacturing processes and how 3D printing is changing it.

    Prototype • Reduces or Eliminates Tooling & Setup • On-site

    manufacturing and processing (Time Reduction) • Economical Material Costs Review & Test • Multiple Prototypes available sooner • Reduced Waiting Time for Review • Printed Parts can be functional Refine • Identify Physical Prototype Imperfections before Production • Identify Assembly Imperfections before Production Produce • Faster than Injection Molding for Smaller Production Runs • More Cost Effective at Smaller Production Runs

    Subtractive Manufacturing Additive Manufacturing + Very Mature, T&T + Great

    Precision + Low Maintenance - Costly (Time & Labor) - Lots of Scrap Produced + Cheaper, Faster Turn + Reduced Scrap - Not Yet Mature - Decent Precision - Maintenance Intensive
