BCN3D Applied sciences, a Spanish 3D printer producer, and the Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) Barcelona have partnered to speed up creativity for its college students.
Based mostly in Castelldefels, IED Barcelona is a global community of 11 universities specializing in design, vogue, visible communication and administration. The institute has carried out BCN3D 3D printers for the manufacture of prototypes and purposeful components for tasks.
“For BCN3D to have the ability to supply our 3D printers to universities and specialised academic facilities, equivalent to IED, means coming into a strategic sector with which we wish to proceed working carefully [with],” mentioned Xavier Martínez Faneca, CEO of BCN3D.
“Our philosophy as a expertise agency that designs and manufactures its personal 3D printers in Barcelona is concentrated on serving to universities and academic and creativity facilities to appropriately implement 3D printing and go hand in hand with strategic companions, as is the case of IED.”

Accelerating the inventive course of
In 2017, IED Barcelona included additive manufacturing to present college students with expertise to conceptualize their mission concepts. This has led to the event of vehicle ideas for 2035 cities, vogue equipment, and fashions for future hospital environments. In consequence, its Maker Lab has adopted BCN3D’s Sigma and Sigmax 3D printers.
Raffaella Perrone, improvement director of the Design space of IED Barcelona, defined, “Speedy prototyping takes lots of significance, particularly in
the self-discipline design. Because of the brand new applied sciences that we now have inside
attain, the creation of fast prototypes permit [us] to speed up the inventive

In accordance with IDEC college students, Unbiased Twin Extruder (IDEX) expertise, built-in into BCN3D 3D printers, has notably aided within the discount of mannequin creation. This has been helpful in assembly educational deadlines. Perrone added, “College students, in the course of the design course of, can shortly validate and materialize concepts by 3D printed fashions.”
The IDEX structure permits 2 completely different supplies or colours to be printed whereas one toolhead stays parked, stopping the dripping of molten plastic onto the half. Moreover, the IDEX structure permits symmetrical printing with each toolheads concurrently for double the manufacturing capability.
The 3D printers at IDEC Barcelona have been mentioned to reinforce the creativity of greater than 1400 college students.
