New Balance Shows the Process of 3D Printing

Friday Mar 15 2013

New Balance takes pride in being on the cutting edge of technology. They have recently revealed a short and powerful glimpse into the 3D printing process the company uses to craft some of the parts that go into its performance running models. Becoming gradually more widespread since it's introduction back in 1986, 3D prints are typically produced by taking 3D models designed with Computer Assisted Design (CAD) or modeling software and slicing them into cross-sections. These slices are then individually printed using layers of liquid, powder or other materials before being fused together to form the completed three-dimensional shape. Other methods, include the use of lasers to selectively melt the model into a material before removing the excess to reveal the completed form. View the video & witness the 3D printing experience for yourself.
