When we talk about 3D printing, we talk about digital craftsmanship. Why do we use this concept? What is behind the design and manufacture of our trésdesis?

We often refer to the design and manufacturing process in 3D printing as additive manufacturing. To explain it a little better, additive manufacturing refers to the manufacturing method of adding layers of material until the desired shape is achieved. The 3D printing process therefore consists of producing objects by adding material in layers of a 3D model .

But why talk about digital craftsmanship - isn't 3D printing just a push of a button and wait?

At Ayúdame3D we say that our devices and solidarity products are pieces of digital craftsmanship. That's why sometimes they don't turn out as well as we would like. That's why we are always looking for ways to innovate and improve. From the design, prototyping or manufacturing to the assembly of the pieces to obtain the final result, the whole process requires manual work and excellent attention to detail.

In the case of our trésdesis, for example, the parts are printed flat. Once printed, they are heated with an industrial dryer to give them the desired shape adapted to each user. In addition, a complex assembly process is required for the phalanges, the palm and the rest of the arm. Each piece is added one by one.

A curious thing is that there are never two Helpis alike or two trésdesis alike. Each piece is unique. For all these reasons, we talk about digital craftsmanship: 3D printed products that require great attention to detail, extensive manual work and that are unique.

This is the manufacturing process of a trésdesis. 100% customised, 100% digital craftsmanship.
