Technology learns how to sail. This is the motto of Sailing Team Darmstadt, which has taken on the challenge of building an autonomous and energy self-sufficient sailboat that can cross the Atlantic Ocean. Since nobody has yet achieved this feat, a strategic plan needed to be laid out. The sailing team is broken into several groups, which are working on the following areas of focus: power supply, navigation, electronics, control systems, mechanics, organization and software. The German RepRap X1000 3D printer is supporting the sailing team in each of these areas.

x350 and x400 3D printers execute serial production of 40,000 parts for the automotive industry


Utilizing 3D Printing Technology for Series Production: Thomas Pazulla Manufactures 40,000 Parts for Automotive Clients With German RepRap x400 and x350 3D Printers.

Prototypes from Polypropylene: The German RepRap x400 in Operation at Hürner-Funken

Rapid prototyping and small batch production – 3D printer operation at Hürner-Funken is very typical of the sector and therefore a good example of the benefits that 3D printing can bring to the daily work of a development department. Since 2013 the x400 from German RepRap has been providing excellent service in the production of special series, function samples and prototypes for these specialists in fan and ventilation systems based in Central Hessen.

New era for the metal industry: Stegerer Metallbau GmbH with the x350pro

Stegerer Metallbau GmbH, deeply committed to innovation, leads the way into a new era for the metal industry with the German RepRap x350 Pro. When you hear the term “traditional craftsmanship,” you don't immediately think of an innovative technology such as 3D printers used for rapid prototyping. But specialist metal fabricator Stegerer Metallbau GmbH is using additive manufacturing to plot a new course for the industry.

BorgiForm Is Convinced by the Performance of German RepRap 3D Printers

Considerable Cost Calculation Benefits for Tool Manufacturing and a Massive Cost Reduction in Automation and Measurement Technology. BorgiForm, a young, innovative family business headquartered in the heart of eastern Westphalia (Germany), focuses its business literally “shaping” ideas. Dirk Kriegel, Managing Director, introduced 3D printing technology a while ago. Additive manufacturing simplifies the company’s work and is used in the development of die-cutting and bending tools as well as in automated manufacturing.

Prototyping for Airbus Helicopters with x400

When developing new systems, it is necessary to make statements about function, handling and integration in the helicopter at an early development stage. For this purpose usually prototypes are created, which manufacturing produce high costs due to need of toolings or milling programs. To get an initial analysis of a component without high efforts and costs the 3D printing process will be used.

Popp Group prints complete door hinges with the X400

The Popp Group, based in Forchheim, Germany, produced 3D printed door hinges to help a customer in the medical technology sector reduce manufacturing costs for medical cabinets as part of a cost-down procedure. “Our aim was to reduce production costs by producing an adjustable hinge for which many identical parts can be used,” explains Holger Ried, technical product designer responsible for the project at the Popp Group.

Pilz GmbH halved their manufacturing costs with X350Pro and Carbon20

Pilz GmbH, whose full name is Produktentwicklungs-, Initiativ- und Lehrzentrum Finsterwalde/Lausitz GmbH, is a company that has been using the German RepRap x350Pro 3D printer for almost a year and has reaped considerable benefits from it in terms of production speed and costs. The 3D printing technology is primarily used for prototypes and initial samples of smaller assemblies. Attempts are also sometimes made to replace metal workpieces with plastic ones. The commercial use of 3D printing is also suitable for the supply of spare plastic components.

With the x1000 3D printer RWTH Aachen is analyzing latest requirements of industry for additive manu

In Search of the Production Processes of Our Time With the help of the German RepRap x1000 3D printer RWTH Aachen is analyzing the latest requirements of industry for additive manufacturing. Due to the rapid development of new additive manufacturing processes, industry is facing new challenges. In recent years the increasing professionalization of industry-standard manufacturing systems has been greatly influenced by manufacturers like German RepRap GmbH. Aspects such as process safety, high mechanical precision and the repeatability of results in particular are playing here an increasingly more significant role for industry.

Airbus Helicopters is building a Prototype for a Camera Mount with x400

Airbus Helicopters is currently about to develop an extension for camera mounts to be used with observation cameras on their helicopters. These have possible applications with the police or army for helping them to follow movements on the ground. To achieve the optimum design, the X400 3D printer from German RepRap is used to create different possible prototypes for testing.

Reitlinger Engineering Reduces Development Costs through 3D Printing

Design engineering company ReitlingerEngineering GmbH+Co. KG, Weinstadt-Endersbach, used reverse engineering and 3D printing to develop a labelling machine. This produced a flexible, fast and inexpensive solution compared to alternative methods.

Oberle Specialty Manufacturing’s State-of-the-Art Orthopedic Shoe Technology

The history of the Oberle shoe company began more than 150 years ago. In 1859, the great-great grandfather of Oberle’s current General Manager, Achim Oberle, opened a cobbler’s shop in Ettenheim that made shoes for customers in town and the surrounding areas.
