The company has been outsourcing CAD/CAM since almost 5 years now, but lately they started to seriously evaluate the latest CAD/CAM solutions available in the market. That was when they thought of implementing CAD/CAM in-house further to which Rhino software. & Solidscape were the choice after evaluation. ” We visit Hong Kong regularly & some of their designs made us to ponder that how could those have been molded. In our designs at times, we encounter designs which are really hard to mold, in that case we modify the design to take care of the manufacturing constraints. But when we realized that with Solidscape, there is no need to make a rubber mold since you can directly cast the output, we were extremely inclined to evaluate Solidscape. Further to this, we visited Intriguity, acquired more knowledge on the machine & went ahead to purchase one. We have been using the machine since a few months now & are soon planning for a 2nd one in 2010.” Comments Mr Hemendra Soni.

The company purchased a second machine shortly and are currently using 2 machines of Solidscape model T76+
