A New Workflow: Ultrafast Design at the Desktop
Design engineering teams face tight deadlines and high demands. A digitized, ultrafast workflow can maximize productivity and exceed quality expectations.
December 9, 2021
Product designers face high expectations today like never before. Consumers demand personalization, quality, and availability. Online marketplaces that cater to these demands have only heightened this trend. Designers have to hit the mark every time, with success or failure immediately amplified through social media.
Against this backdrop, the traditional nature of the workplace is evolving into a fluid hybrid of work spaces and calendars. That added flexibility requires rethinking how people work, and in particular how product design flows need to adapt.
What these changes bring into focus is a critical need for orchestrating activities and schedules among design teams. To minimize friction, Nexa3D focuses on delivering ultrafast technology to bring digital designs to life in hours, even minutes, to keep the design process moving forward at pace. Designers can collaboratively investigate a larger number of designs without impacting schedule.
Recently, Nexa3D partnered with WeMed and Henkel to develop and manufacture the world’s first 3D printed connected stethoscope. The SKOP is a product borne of and for the COVID-19 crisis to provide critical remote medical consultation for patients. WeMed was able to execute multiple rapid design cycles and begin production at scale in part due to the superior speed of the 3D printers and the flexibility of the Nexa3D open materials network to identify the best end-use material.
Nexa3D was founded on the premise of making radically faster additive manufacturing tools. This aim was first directed at manufacturing end-use parts at 20X the productivity, but it became apparent that professional desktop users could also benefit from superior productivity. The result is Nexa3D’s newest 3D printer: the XiP. It has been designed with the professional end user in mind for consistent, reliable, and safe operation suitable for an office or home environment.
By adopting ultrafast additive technologies, designers can overcome their time and space challenges to deliver products users love.
