CNC Machining example from Forecast 3D
3D printing service provider Forecast 3D has expanded its Southern California head quarters in a bid to increase its additive manufacturing services and make room for brand new machines and materials.
Since 1994 the company has been providing 3D printing, rapid prototyping and short run manufacturing services from its Carlsbad premises. Now this 42,500 sq. ft. facility will not only serve SLA, FDM, PolyJET 3D printing, CNC machining and tooling but also several new industrial 3D printers.
"We focus on quick-turn prototype work in both our additive manufacturing capabilities as well as our subtractive CNC milling," said Donovan Weber, COO and co-founder of Forecast 3D. “Our customers appreciate that we keep our focus on prototype and short-runs as our niche, as well as our focus on craftsmanship and customer service. We are excited to continue to grow our operation organically.”
The expansion welcomes an additional 5,500 sq. ft. to the building which will now serve as the base for Forecast 3D’s CNC Machining department, opening up a vast amount of space in the main manufacturing facility for installing new equipment.
“Recent expansion of our CNC department will allow us to respond even more aggressively to the quick-turn prototype needs of our customers,” said Aerospace Project Engineer Mark Whitley. “With increased capacity we can provide fast, accurate and affordable solutions for our customers.”
