Technical News Update
Here at Wallace McDowall we embraced the world of 3D modelling some considerable time ago.

This has allowed us to take customers designs and parts as model files and create the finished part they were looking for.

As well as speeding up the process from design to a fully working production parts.

Now we have taken that a step further with the introduction of a 3D printer on site.

This further enhances what we already have with the ability to produce a scale model if desired or a printed part for the customers own use.
This printer allows us to build models up to 295mm (w) x 195mm (d) x 165mm (h) and with an excellent level of detail which helps to understand if the part will be successful or not.

 Complex shapes are able to be printed and in a variety of different colours. Artistic touches might not be your thing but they certainly show what is capable from the machine.

 Moving into the real world, and taking an existing assembly produced by Wallace McDowall, with a few minor tweaks and adjustment to scale we were able to produce the finished assembly below. 

The addition of the rubber tracks gives a finished feel to the assembly.
