3D Printing - Hero Image

Until relatively recently, the concept of 3D printing was limited to the confines of a vivid imagination. 

But what was science fiction is now science-reality, and it is revolutionizing much of what we do at Bruce Fox on a daily basis.

Rapidly-advancing 3D printing capabilities have opened the door to several advancements in the award space—advancements you can utilize to gain a competitive advantage and offer unprecedented solutions to your clients.

Practical Applications

Unless a device or technology offers a practical application, it’s little more than a toy. 3D printing is no toy, as it has quickly provided many real-world benefits in our business:

  • Tooling time for modeled patterns is dramatically reduced.
  • Quickly create pre-production mockettes and prototypes.
  • Production quantity thresholds have been lowered—we can make small quantities happen for projects that were not viable with traditional fabrication techniques.
  • Utilize print-ready 3D files that many clients already have, so creating product replicas, for instance, is far easier.
  • Shortcut small-medium-large/bronze-silver-gold scenarios—which is quite common in recognition award programs—by creating a single 3D file, then re-scaling it to various sizes.
  • Metal plate 3D printed objects to offer a genuine metal finish.

All of these benefits are readily available to you and your clients under our roof in New Albany, Indiana. We have the equipment, the software, the training & experience, the designers, and the technicians & operators here at Bruce Fox.  We’re ready for your next project!
