BE MORE CREATIVE WITH 3D
On Monday, July 13, 2020 ISTTS held a season 6 episode 5 knowledge sharing program (KSP) webinar on the topic "Welcoming New Normal with 3D". The seminar was attended by internal and external ISTTS participants via the zoom platform and also YouTube live streaming. This time the KSP brought in two speakers, Mr. Martinus Brahma Dwi Laksana, S.T. or commonly known as Mr. Bram and Mr. Ivan Eliata Kusuma, S.T., M.T. as the Head of ISTTS Product Design. The webinar in this episode contains an explanation and sharing of 3D and its application in the Industrial 4.0 era.
As we know that the development of the industry from 1784 until now is very rapid starting from the era of industry 1.0 to 4.0. Pak Bram told how fast and rapid the development of the industrial world even in 2017 Indonesia declared to be a new industrial country. Of course this has an effect on many sectors in Indonesia, especially regarding design until 2019 is declared as the year of industrial design. The development of the industrial world ultimately requires us to be creative even though the current pandemic conditions make many activities become limited and more independent. Therefore, he also said that we must be able to adapt and innovate to maintain economic growth.
One way to increase creativity is by applying 3D design. Pak Bram explained that there are 2 types of 3D applications, namely in the graphic and modeling fields. In the field of graphics, 3D provides a new experience in the world of 2D and can make illustrations in the world of education so that students can imagine the lessons learned by drawing illusions. Whereas in the field of modeling, 3D is used for design designs such as buildings, vehicles and software. This is useful to reduce the level of error that will occur in the manufacture of the product.
Mr. Bram also told that in the development of the 3D world until now it was at a point where the design had been produced in a real way so that it began to develop tools to record an object to facilitate product duplication, until then there was a tool in the form of a 3D Printer that made it easier for designers to realize product designs they.
The material was then continued by Mr. Ivan Eliata Kusuma, S.T., M.T. or commonly known as Mr. Ivan. He then explained about 3D printing. What is 3D Printing? 3D printing is a scaled object creation application using plastic as the main material. The process is by melting plastic in a 3 axis axis projection to form a whole object in accordance with the design or design that is made. He also demonstrated the printing process and explained some parts of the 3D Printer tool such as the nozzle for removing and forming material into objects, filament as material for printing objects, bed as a base for objects and extruder hose as a tool to heat the filament to runny and then push it out through the nozzle. In addition to the 3D Printer, Pak Ivan also explained about 3D Scanning that was applied for Reverse Engineering. 3D Scanning is useful for making it easier for designers to duplicate objects or products in order to reprocess the product into a new form without the need to fulfill the dimensions of the product.
One of the 3D Scanning tools is Hand Held 3D Scanner. Mr. Ivan shows how to use the device starting from turning on the device, then aiming and moving the sensor at the object to be duplicated. The product form is then captured through the device sensor and will automatically be seen in applications that are connected to the device on a computer or laptop screen. After that we can process the 3D Scanning design according to our wishes.
The seminar was then followed by a question and answer session and sharing between participants and speakers about 3D Printing and Scanning, then ended with a group photo and also filled out questionnaires and attendance for participants.
