DustRam: A Great Example of Using 3D Printing for Durable Production Parts

Nothing makes us happier here at PADT than seeing a customer be successful with technology we worked with them on. When Jack King of DustRam came to us for a prototype for a part on his dust free tile removal product it was just the start of a fantastic journey that showed off the power of 3D Printing.  After a few iterations Jack was able to replace his expensive and long lead metal mouthpiece with a plastic one that he could manufacture on demand in his own shop using his Stratasys 3D Printer.

It was such a great story that two publications were interested and wrote far better writeups than I could.

The first is interesting because it is an industry trade magazine for people in the floor installation business. Their perspective is refreshing for those of us who live in the engineering world, getting more into the practical application of the product:

This was preceded by a fantastic article in Additive Manufacturing magazine that gets more into the technical side:
