At LiSEC – a manufacturer of flat glass processing machinery – components, spare parts and prototypes are produced using 3D printing. For one year, the team of Benjamin Kaubeck has also been using a Swiss system to this end: the Sintratec S2.
With their hybrid rocket, student project PICCARD reaches an altitude of over 6 kilometers and sets a new world record. For the construction of their winning rocket, the team relied on various 3D printing technologies such as Selective Laser Sintering.
At the Zurich University of the Arts, augmented reality and 3D printing are being examined as potential teaching materials of the future. For the innovative project, Sintratec provided a 3D printed replica of an archaeological find.
Students of the project Dyana are fusing animation and robotics together to create a cat-like character with realistic movements. To manufacture their intricate prototype, Andrina Grimm and her team also rely on Sintratec’s 3D printing technology.
ETH students of the Paris Hybrid project are integrating a new hybrid drive train that will improve our road traffic ecologically. To support this low-emission mobility project, Sintratec sponsored 3D printed nylon components to the students.
Australian company Advanced Family & Sports Podiatry manufactures customized foot orthoses on the Sintratec S2 system. The 3D printer’s production capabilities allow Mark Ireland and his team to provide a timely and individualized treatment to their patients.
Gourmet chef André Kneubühler relies on 3D printing for the presentation of his sophisticated dishes. At the «Golden Chef», the most important Swiss cooking competition, he achieves the third place – also with the help of the Sintratec technology.
The Formula Student Team FST Lisboa from Portugal makes use of various 3D printing technologies to build next-generation electric and autonomous driving race cars. For their current prototypes, Sintratec has sponsored multiple laser sintered components to the students.
Cyrill Aemisegger is a passionate skydiver and equally enthusiastic about 3D printing. To combine the two, he has created an additively manufactured actioncam mount with which he can record his jumps. In the interview, he reveals why he prefers the SLS material to a conventional actioncam mount.
A Swiss student project is shooting for the stars: As part of the student association for space, the team of project EULER is building the first supersonic rocket of Switzerland. For their construction, the students also make use 3D printing technologies such as Selective Laser Sintering (SLS).
