3D Printed Bellow Assembly Nutplate


UK-based Mecmesin provides high-quality testing solutions to businesses of all sizes, with a specialization in customized work. Since they deal with a relatively large number of one-off runs, Markforged printers make it far more cost-effective to manufacture several different parts. When a project was in danger of falling behind while waiting on an external supplier, redesigning the part for a Markforged printer kept the team on track.

This assembly nutplate is used for several smaller test stands, and is one of many parts that Mecmesin prints. They were originally made out of house from sheet steel, with lead times of up to 5 weeks; printing durable, functional parts like this in Onyx allows Mecmesin to break development and testing roadblocks caused by outsourcing and maximizes their design freedom. The nutplates are available on-demand, which means fewer added costs from external suppliers and vastly reduced lead times.
