"Build. Test. Optimize." is the motto of Hyphen, the in-house rapid prototyping center of Christie Digital Systems which designs and manufactures high end digital projectors. Hyphen now serves external customers as well as a cutting edge, full service Prototyping and Testing Center.
Managing Director Mark Barfoot shows us how, at Hyphen, you can actually design it today and hold it tomorrow!
By employing both Stratasys FDM-based (http://www.stratasys.com/3d-printers/technology/fdm-technology) and PolyJet-based (http://www.stratasys.com/3d-printers/technology/polyjet-technology) 3D Printers in its additive manufacturing processes, Hyphen ensures that its customers get the most optimal design. You'll see how the sturdy FDM parts behave and test as though they'd been produced with injection molding while the rubber parts produced by their multi-material Objet Connex 3D Printer are perfect for thin and over molded design applications.
As Mark says, the biggest benefit is now that products are "done right the first time."
