Pilot Project: typically a three-phased proof of concept to investigate the feasability of your project
Every step of the way, we take together. In most cases, we therefore start off with a Pilot Project. This means we willl investigate important aspects such as your design, the required material needed for your application and the print strategy. Tests and prints are included to proof the concept. The appropriate hardware solution derived from the results of the project ensures to leverage the technology to its full potential.
The Pilot Project typically consists of three phases deliberately in place to minimize the risk for both parties. Every phase ends with a Go/No go moment which allows both parties to control the project, each phase assesses vital parts of the technical and commercial feasibility of the case.
Phase 1: Part selection, redesign and material selection
Phase 2: Printing design elements to verify redesign and materials
Phase 3: Printing of the part and use it!
Pilot Project: Large-scale 3D printed bridge
For this project, three companies joined forces to break new ground: CEAD, international engineering and project management consultancy Royal HaskoningDHV, and DSM: an international company focussing on developing game-changing scientific science across multiple societal areas.
