Printed 3D Models provide exact dimensional information to build complex custom Heating Jackets. One of the best ways is to take measurements of the actual part in the field or, if possible, have the customer ship the part to our plant. Although this is not always possible we have had customers ship their part to our facility for measurement and fit up. Recently we had a customer send us a 3-D print out of their parts for measurement and fit up. As you can see by the picture the parts were made of plastic and very colorful. They were an exact duplicate of the actual part. Because the parts were somewhat complicated this allowed us the luxury of very precise jacket fit up for our customer. The ability to 3-D print a part for an application may be the exception rather than the rule, but where available it can help ensure that the customer has the best possible outcome.
