Design For Additive Manufacture (3D Printing)

A full collaborative design and and manufacturing process - keeping you in control 

 Don’t accept your current supply chain manufacturing constraints, talk to Orthogonal Engineering today – there’s always a better way!

Orthogonal’s know-how and experience with High Temperature Polymers and expertise in DfAM - Design for Additive Manufacturing - provides you with full engineering support, ensuring that manufactured parts meet the required operating standards and tolerances (ISO2768 Medium) to ensure that your parts assemble as expected. Full process control and traceability provide you with confidence on part accuracy, repeatability and conformance.

As well as engineering grade prototype and end use parts, we also produce highly detailed scaled equipment demonstration models and Architectural models - Get in touch for more details
