Quest to work on new domain has helped Altem Technologies to serve and imbibe 3D Rapid Prototyping technologies across various domains and across country. One such non-traditional field is basic/pure sciences like Physics, Chemistry, Biology or Mathematics, etc. One of the creative thoughts in today’s dynamic teaching forums are ‘What better it would be to choose 3D Printed teaching aids of the same 3D CAD models which the researchers or students could touch, feel and further visualize better’
All these while, research organisations in India are using leading 3D CAD software like CATIA, etc as platforms to model molecular structure and teach students with software models till the time they met with Altem’s experts. One such research organisation has shared a molecular structure after feeling that there will be a great advantage if they could realise the model in physical form.
As a part of continuous journey to educate 3D Rapid Prototyping Technology in new domain and overcome new challenges, Altem Technologies has took up a 3D Printing activity in a Professional 3D Printer using FDM Technology with one of the premier research organizations in India in frontier areas of modern biology. The molecular model in a 3D CAD software which is further 3D Printed at Altem Technologies’ Bangalore Product Experience Centre, using Stratasys FDM Additive Manufacturing System.
Above 3D Printed molecular structures has helped in teaching aspects and also in visualisation of the structure in a better manner. Many faculties and researchers across the country have expressed their agreement that if they have a physical model that could be felt and experienced, there would be a positive impact on the effectiveness of their research and study.
