We all know 3D printing technologies and its advantages in the engineering parts manufacturing as well as commercial products/objects development. Traditional molding processes with different material are time-consuming and costly processes at the business perspective.
Therefore, we have adopted 3D printing technologies at Olympia. The Olympia is a leading trophy, awards, plaques, models, and corporate gift manufacturing and supplying brand in Australia thriving in the market since 1963.
3D printing has made fast turnarounds of the products and saved time, money, and labor on the traditional methods. Moreover, it has injected fresh air by producing mind-blowing trophies for corporate awards. Innovative trophies and awards created by 3D printing, 3D scanning, and 3D engraving won the heart of our clientele within a short span.
So, let me introduce you at least eight mind-blowing examples 3D printed custom trophies applauded in the market and will remain on top of the list for the entire 2019.
1 – 3D Printed Waterford Crystal Golf Club Head
Various sports clubs in Australia used to order traditional metallic, glass, crystals, and resin trophies customized for different sports to Olympia. Once Waterford Crystal Golf Club has requested our designers to come up with something unique and innovative gift to present winner golfers in a tournament annually held.
They wish to present that gift as a trophy or award for the golf sports. Our designers have taken it as a challenge and implemented 3D printing technologies to create a crystal golf club head using 3D printing technologies and deliver the order with a few days instead of weeks!
2 – 3D Printed Musical Snow Dome Ballet with Rotating Base
A client from the music industry in Australia approached us to create an innovative trophy prototype for winners of a musical contest. We are brainstorming with the client team and draw an illustration.
After required changes, we decided to create a 3D dome rotating on the base and accomplish 3D engraving of a figurine playing music on a musical note that we displayed as an icon and rests was the development of an ambiance fit with the concept. The concept worked well and appreciated in the industry.
3 – 3D Printed Product Embedding
Various corporations and business houses often approach Olympia to create an award embedded with their products or logos. We have used 3D printing and engraving technologies to meet their sophisticated needs.
We have embedded various 3D objects including badges, torches, batteries, seashells, bottles, recognition certificates, and medical tablets, as well as laminated logos in the glass, crystal, and acrylic like transparent materials. It has shown greater adaptability among the winners of corporate awards and trophies for different purposes.
4 – 3D Printed Statuette Resembling the Company Logo
This 3D printed award is containing three main elements, a 3D globe, which was designed using 3D object simulating software and translated it into a solid reality using 3D printing technology.
The next object was the three human figurines in a symbolic state. It was laser cut from the metals. Finally, a base from natural stone and the phrase from the thermo-transform technique.
5 – 3D Printed Spinning Atom for Science Trophy
A school needed an innovation award for its debate team on a subject of science, and it was an atomic model. A 3D printed trophy was created using resin material with an ability to spin when touched physically with a finger.
A nucleus created in a rounded object in the center and rests of electron orbits around it. Orbits and nucleus were spinning objects in three dimensions and printed with relevant data on it.
6 – 3D Printed HIP-HOP Trophy
It is a dazzling trophy with metallic shining and 3D letters printed in 3D space to accurately represent the event. The same kinds of the base were created, and laser printed the name of the event. The most interesting thing is that the trophy was created within five days only! It was direct evidence of efficacy and magic of 3D printing technologies.
After 3D printing of objects, the chroming process was applied involving hand-sanding. It was the application of a few layers of primer and later on coated with a thin paper layer of reflective layer of metal using 3D print. It has made trophy made of the solid metal and looked impressive in the hands of winners.
7 – 3D Printed Robot Trophy
The trophy was designed for a non-profit organization, which was wishing to recognize outstanding performers in the community. A 3D printed robot was developed with an explicit level of details. Amalgamation of colors, textures were printed on various components of a robot that was enough to grab the eyes of onlookers immediately.
The base has a plate to 3D print the name of the event and other details.
8 – 3D Printed Glowing Bulb in Hand Trophy
A semi-functional bulb was designed with the capability of glowing in the dark. The bulb was seated in the palm of a human being’s hand like creation as a complete 3D object.
You have seen that Olympia also is producing outstanding 3D printed products for the sake of high quality, fast delivery, and cost efficiencies. The team of designer and product engineers are of the creative and progressive mindset. Therefore, they always think of the betterment of customers and adopt the latest 3D printing, screening, and engraving technologies quickly. Results are awesome, and you can try us by ordering trophies and awards for your next event or appraisal program.
