Replacement parts for outdoor blinds system
After 30+ years of usage, the outdoor blinds system of the police building in Maastricht required renovation. Parts were cracked or even broken. As no replacement parts for the outdoor blinds could be ordered anymore the police faced a tough decision. Replacing the entire system (very expensive) or looking for a way to keep using the old one.
We were approached by the police if it is possible to reproduce these parts with modern technology. RRU 3D Services & Prototyping reverse engineered the existing parts and created prototypes with 3D printing technology for fitting purposes. Eventually the parts were made by cnc machining to guarantee the anywhere material strength while in operation (weather resistance / mechanical wear) .
