Scout Design & Manufacturing

From simple to complex 3d printing and design services.

Slide 1

SDM provides 3D printing and design services

SDM 3D printing uses both the FDM (filament based) and SLA (resin based) printers. We also have 30+ years of product design experience to help you model your ideas. We provide 3D scanning with a small 3D scanner. We can print single prototype parts up to low volume production runs.

Understanding 3D Printing

3D printing services have now become available to everyone. The availability of materials and the decreasing price of hardware means that 3D printing services are a great source for your development needs.

The Benefits of 3D Printing

Thanks to 3D printing, an individual can easily benefit from the reduced cost of production via 3D printing solutions, something that was previously only an option for larger companies that could afford to buy their own 3D printers. Among the many positive aspects that 3D printing brings to the table are reduced lead times, decreased production costs, optimized iterations and maximized profits.

Mechanical Design Services and Modeling

SDM has experience with 3D mechanical product design, we use ProEngineer CAD software and can input/output models in many file formats. We can help complete or change existing CAD models as well as design from ideas and concepts.

See the Design Services page for more information on our modeling capabilities.

3D Scanning

SDM has a small 3D scanner that scans objects to be imported to a file format that can be used for 3D printing or merged into a rendering program.

See the 3D Scanning Services page for detailed information about SDM's scanners capability.
