• 3D printing: NTEK new strength

    Copertura di motore realizzata in PA6-GF30.

    NTEK is an Italian company specialized in products and services for the measurement and control of noise and the vibrations deriving from it, in all application fields of acoustics.

    Within the range of proposed solutions, the dodecahedral sources of the OMNI series stand out, used to uniformly emit a sound in all directions, allowing correct measurement of insulation and reverberation time both in acoustics construction and architectural acoustics.

    NTEK has recently revolutionized the production process of the Omni 4” Series by focusing on 3D printing, and entrusting the creation of the new products to Crea 3D, its technological partner also for the development of the design of the new dodecahedrons.

  • DfAM - Criteri di progettazione per la stampa 3D FFF

    La tecnologia di stampa 3D a filamento (FFF) prevede alcuni criteri di design, da seguire per non incorrere in problemi in fase di stampa. Discutiamo nel dettaglio alcune delle regole del DfAM (Design for Additive Manufacturing).

  • DfAM - Design criteria for FFF 3D printing

    Filament 3D printing technology (FFF) provides some design criteria, to be followed in order not to run into problems during the printing phase. Let's discuss some of the DfAM (Design for Additive Manufacturing) rules in detail.

  • Fast Parts: CAD / CAM / CAE Design

    CAD / CAM / CAE Design

    All the works carried out by the Fast Parts design team are characterized by the use of the Solid Edge and Fusion 360 design systems, two highly sophisticated software, ideal for integrating the different phases of the Design and Communication between CAD/CAM processes, also focusing on the "Design for 3D Printing".

  • Services

    Designing "for 3D printing" requires industry-specific expertise. Traditional CAD design is often not sufficient, or requires some useful precautions for the correct finalization of the design.

    You need to learn to prevent errors in the printing phase, paying attention to surfaces, angles, overhangs and design details.

    An in-depth knowledge of additive manufacturing technologies allows you to reduce time and costs, right from the early stages of design.



    Co-Design is a participatory and collaborative design methodology that allows us to accompany the partner companies in the various phases of the development cycle both of the prototype than of the functional product.

    Our R&D team, with highly qualified technical staff, uses of the most innovative technology to give shape to ideas. We use the range of Siemens and Autodesk products: SolidEdge for complex shape development and heat transfer analysis, Fusion 360for 3D modeling and generative design.

    The sectors in which we operate range from automotive to electronics, from technical footwear to sports equipment, from biomedical to the furniture sector.

    FastParts employs a wide range of thermoplastic polymers and resins, the selection of which is a crucial stage in project development.

    Generative Design

    What is Generative Design?

    Generative design mimics nature's evolutionary approach to design. Designers or engineers enter design goals into generative design software, along with parameters such as materials, manufacturing methods, and cost constraints. Unlike topology optimization, the software explores all possible permutations of a solution, quickly generating design alternatives. It tests and learns from each iteration what works and what doesn't.
    It quickly creates high-performance design alternatives - you could never have thought of many of them yourself - from one idea. With generative design, there is no single solution; in fact, there are potentially thousands of great solutions. Choose the design that best suits your needs.


    Benefits of generative design

    Explore a wider range of design options

    Explore a wider range of design options

    At the same time you conceive an idea, a computer generates thousands, with data showing which designs are the best.

    Make impossible designs possible

    Make impossible designs possible

    Generative design allows for the creation of complex shapes and optimized internal lattices. Some of these shapes are impossible to make with traditional production methods. On the contrary, they are possible using the new additive manufacturing methods.

    Optimize for materials and manufacturing methods

    Optimize for materials and manufacturing methods

    Set goals and benchmarks, and the software will create high-performance project options based on those constraints. The software resolves possible conflicts between these constraints, so you can focus on innovating.


    Aerospace and automotive, architecture and construction, industrial machinery...

    Generative design leaves the lab for use in the field.

    8 components in 1 piece

    40% lighter | 20% more resistant



    more than 10,000 possible options

    45% lighter | -50% production steps


    From the CAD project to the Reverse Engineering, from the 3D modeling to the 3D printing and Generative Design, our consultants will guide you in choosing the most suitable, and above all affordable, solutions for each sector.

    We support companies and professionals in the creation of designs and models, according to the specifications indicated and on the production method chosen.

    3D Scanning e Reverse Engineering


    FastParts carries out a professional 3D scanning service, capable of reconstructing the model, texture and color of the desired object.
    The file obtained from the 3D scan it can be supplied in the most common formats (STL, OBJ, etc) or 3D printed directly, based on the request and feasibility.

    - measurement and reverse engineering
    - conservation of historical and artistic heritage
    - design of prostheses and medical devices
    - creation of anatomical models
    - 3D printing of prototypes


    With the Reverse Engineering process it is possible to analyze and reconstruct a product for which the original projects or three-dimensional modeling files are not possessed.

    Reverse Engineering allows you to study and customize an existing object, to improve its appearance and functionality.

  • Stampa 3D: il nuovo punto di forza di NTEK

    Copertura di motore realizzata in PA6-GF30.

    NTEK è un’azienda italiana specializzata in prodotti e servizi per la misurazione ed il controllo del rumore e delle vibrazioni da esso derivati, in tutti i campi applicativi dell’acustica.

    All’interno della gamma di soluzioni proposte, spiccano le sorgenti dodecaedriche della serie OMNI, utilizzate per emettere uniformemente un suono in tutte le direzioni, permettendo una corretta misura dell’isolamento e del tempo di riverbero sia in acustica edilizia che in acustica architettonica.

    Recentemente NTEK ha rivoluzionato il processo produttivo della Serie Omni 4” puntando sulla stampa 3D, e affidando la realizzazione dei nuovi prodotti a Crea 3D, partner tecnologico anche per lo sviluppo del design dei nuovi dodecaedri.
