Configured quickly online
An online gear design for the igus® 3D printing service takes about 60 seconds. The delivery then takes place from 24 hours. Unlike gears manufactured with industrial printers and are ready to ship after up to 3 days. "In prototype construction, high flexibility and fast delivery times are crucial," says Hermann Stockinger, Easelink founder. "It is precisely these factors that we appreciate - to quickly select and print gears in many variations via the igus online configurator." “
Another advantage, along with the unbeatable time savings, is the cost-effectiveness of igus® service, since all tooling costs are eliminated. The designer only needs to select the gear module, and set the number of teeth and the torque transmission. The configurator creates a 3D model of the gear, the basis for 3D printing. Hundreds of variants of single and double gears can be created without using computer-aided design (CAD) software.
