Mostly 3D printed materials! The individual layers of additive manufacturing can be seen on the metal parts. Head and spar are made of sintered PA12 Nylon which was then colored in black. All internal cylinders were made of brass. The metal band was formed from 420SBR, a mixture of stainless steel and bronze, then black coated.
To celebrate the Grand Duke’s Official Birthday we did some amazing X-models for the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs. Known from the new signature and slogan of Luxembourg “Let’s make it happen“.
Nylon PA12 (MJF) with its excellent mechanical properties and detailed surface resolution, is exceptionally versatile and the ideal material for a wide range of applications.
The material has a high impact resistance, due to different geometries it can either be flexible or rigid. The printing technology gives you extensive freedom of design.
By using HP Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) technology, your parts have a higher density, lower porosity and are watertight compared to parts produced with Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). Furthermore the part have homogeneous (isotropic) mechanical properties.
Typical use and our use cases
Complex models, prototypes, architectural models, industrial parts, spare parts, housings
The 3D print process begins by laying down a thin layer (0,08 mm) of nylon powder on a build platform. Next a print head passes the surface while jetting a fusing agent, where the powder should fuse. Also a detailing agent is applied at the boundaries of the parts to produce sharp and smooth edges. In order to fuse the selected areas, fusing lamps pass the surface. The build platform moves down and the next thin layer is being applied.

Customized 3D printed parts can be adapted to have a unique design or can be reengineered to meet your requirements.

The bird from the animated short “Luxembourg Let’s make it happen – by Oscar-winning director Laurent Witz-” symbolizes how an idea takes flight and conquers the world through collaboration, creativity and perseverance. Openness, dynamism and reliability: Luxembourg’s core values are the driving forces behind new ideas and partnerships, making the Grand Duchy the ideal location to bring your ideas to life.
This project has been realized in collaboration with the Ministry of the Economy and the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.
Due to the local manufacturing of every single piece, we could add the „Made in Luxembourg“ label to the packaging. The bird sculpture was printed in nylon
(MJF PA12) and post processed with a carbon finish.

In order to match the previous trophies of the Media Awards we didn’t change the overall shape, but its’ uniqueness came from the fact that the creation was only possible using Additive Manufacturing.
After several prototypes the decision was taken to implement a lattice structure, which is usually placed into industrial parts for reducing weight and material cost.
The trophy was printed in Nylon PA12 with the latest HP MJF 3D Printer, afterwards the parts were black dyed. The acrylic glass inlet was printed from the backside and fitted seamlessly in the front of the trophy. Milled anodized aluminum plates in gold, silver, bronze and red were mounted to represent the ranking.
The challenge of implementing additive manufacturing and different materials in one object resulted in a unique trophy for the winners of the Media Awards 2018.
Photos of the Tourism Innovation Award Ceremony, which took place on September 27th
We designed and manufactured a unique trophy in cooperation with the Ministry of the Economy.
The initial idea was to bring the little bird out of the nation branding video to the real world. (http://www.inspiringluxembourg.public.lu/en/outils/videos/il-video-witz-en-long/index.html)
The 3D model of the bird has been adapted and modified to be 3D printable. The bird sculpture was printed in high detail resin and electroplated in order to have a real metal finish.
The trophy base does represent one rhombus of the X, as seen in the Luxembourg Signature. The base was printed out of black Nylon (MJF PA12). Furthermore we integrated laser engraved anodized aluminum plates to highlight the winners of the Tourism Innovation Awards.

Collaboration with LuxAI S.A. on the design and development of the QTrobot, a tool for therapists to support education of children with autism.
Main task was to provide the client with a custom made wall mount for a Wlan Router, we’ve designed, engineered and produced the frame for this application.
The material we used was Nylon PA22 in order to get the right geometric stability and surface finish.
Le client n’a pas toujours à nous livrer des fichiers 3D. Cela peut aussi être une pièce existante qui sera scannée ou, comme dans l’exemple ci-dessous, une série de croquis.
Avec les croquis nous réalisons le fichier 3D nécessaire à la production des pièces.
Dans notre exemple l’association Hulya nous a adressé les croquis suivants:
Les croquis nous ont servi, en contact étroit avec l’association, à réaliser un modèle 3D:
Finalement le modèle 3D a été imprimé en nylon:
