Medium to Large Scale Industrial and Creative 3D Printing
Commissioned by St. Paul Christian Academy in Nashville, TN in 2018, Freshmade 3D was responsible for populating their C.S. Lewis Library with artifacts relating to the famous author and the group of writers he belonged to called the Inklings. Many AMClad® parts were needed to fill the large elevated shelves with oversized objects able to be seen from ground level.
Each AMClad® item was designed and painted by Freshmade 3D. It’s estimated by using AMClad®, Freshmade 3D was able to save St. Paul Christian Academy over 50% in cost compared to using other large-scale 3D printing technologies.

Freshmade 3D collaborated with Hasenstab Architects from Akron, OH in 2017 to produce key components of an art display for the new Akron Children’s Hospital in the Mahoning Valley, OH. The architects needed to create oversized animals for the art display in the main lobby so they turned to 3D printing as a potential solution for production. AMClad® presented itself as the best approach after learning it would be more affordable, faster, and result in a higher quality finished product compared to other 3D printing technologies.

In 2016, Freshmade 3D was approached by the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber to 3D print two life-size bobbleheads of the presidential candidates for the election taking place in 2016. The chamber had a limited budget and existing large-scale 3D printing technologies were cost prohibitive. Freshmade 3D turned to sand 3D printing as a potential solution, but first had to address the challenge of transforming the fragile sand parts in into functional and durable parts. A solution called AMClad® was developed after initial testing indicated it would meet the chamber’s budget and provide a high-quality end product

AMClad is a rigid and durable composite idea for indoor and outdoor architecture projects and restoration. Leveraging binder jetting technology allows us to print medium to large parts with versatile surface finishing options. Combined with our digital design equipment and expertise, Freshmade 3D can provide a complete solution for a wide range of projects.
Freshmade 3D developed a value-add product called AMClad®,
which takes advantage of the fast output and large-scale
capabilities offered by ExOne sand printers. AMClad® products
start as fragile 3D printed sand parts provided by Humtown
Products in Leetonia, OH, which are then processed into durable
and functional parts used for hard tooling, prototypes and end
use parts across many industries.
