A company with deep expertise in software, electronics, and mechanical engineering wished to outsource development of a new product line that was outside the scope of their core technology offering.
Application is counter-top chemical-safety- interlocked FDM (3d-printing) support-material chemical removal ‘dishwasher’ to be used with alkaline ‘soap pods’. The electronic controls were designed by WED for Stratasys in response to a request from HP. Stratasys would OEM these support-removal devices for HP. The product was marketed overseas and never made it to the US.
A well-known industry pioneer in 3D printing for many decades that specialized in both selling 3D printing equipment and supplies but also in providing FDM rapid-prototype and medium scale manufacturing of printed housings and objects to a broad range of manufacturing sectors.
