XForm is an international industrial design, rendering and prototyping studio with offices in Italy and Shanghai.
With a wealth of expertise developed and consolidated over 20 years of profitable activity, XForm develops technical-stylistic concepts for brands such as Maserati, Audi, Ducati, Fiat, Bosch and Hitachi and deployed 3ntr professional 3D printers since 2017, for the development and proposition of its projects.
Having clear the goal and following the analysis of the additive market, XForm focuses on 3ntr systems.
XForm’s knowledge of additive technologies is consolidated over several years through the use of several 3D printers, however, with the purchase of 3ntr professional systems XForm immediately rediscovers the satisfaction of presenting its projects by combining print quality, accessibility and competitiveness, adding additional weight and value to their work.
The large size of the A2 printing plate and the ability to print three different materials at the same time opened up new perspectives in terms of aesthetics and product performance.
A single detail can be composed of different polymers, for colors and/or performance.
The OPEN feature of 3ntr technology makes it easy to configure processes and systems in relation to the level of precision that printing requires.
All these features, in addition to the reliability of the printing system (no-stop 24/7) has allowed XForm to create in-house prototypes of large format, geometrically and aesthetically perfect, fundamental to propose and validate projects .
The new design project for a high-pressure hydro-cleaning machine involved the creation of a high-performance portable product, a compact and heavy machine.
The aim of the project was to create a product that was as aesthetic as it was durable and balanced that would combining aesthetic qualities with studies of ergonomics and capacity.
To verify the characteristics of this product, all the components have been prototyped and assembled, including accessories, engine and pump, finally validating center of gravity and ergonomics.
The 3ntr professional 3D printer in the company has made it possible to carry out the analysis in a few days at a very low cost, compared to the possible use of external services, thus ensuring privacy, competitiveness and complete control of the project with maximum versatility
Distributor 386 is the 1:1 scale project built for an atomizer, a liquid spraying device mounted on agricultural tank machines.
The goal was complex, to create a prototype with dimensions and movements comparable to the real model in order to verify its balance and installation.
Again, the challenge was won thanks to 3ntr professional 3D printer, which allowed the verification in a very short time of compatibility/assembly between the CAD-designed parts and the clearance and usability requirements of the final model.
Thank you for the valuable contribution, XForm team !
