Creating a 3D model
In order to make a part on a 3D printer, you must have a 3D model. The creation takes place in the specialized software. If you have a three-dimensional model, then go to the next stage.
Creating a control program based on the created 3D model. It is important to understand that 50% of success in obtaining high-quality printing is laid already at this stage. This is a very important part of the process.
At this point, human participation is minimal. The operator performs the function of monitoring and is involved only in the case of an emergency. 3D printer performs all the commands laid down in the past stage.
A 3D printer, like any machine, has its own printing accuracy. When it is required to improve the surface quality or fitting of the seats, post-processing procedure is applied.
3D printing with thermoplastics
FDM technology used on an industrial scale competes with casting in injection molding machines. A wide selection of plastics, flexible polymers, composites and special materials.more
FDM technology allows you to carry out 80% of orders for 3D printing. A wide range of materials makes this technology relevant in many areas.
3D printing with photopolymers
Excellent quality of even the smallest details. The process of creating high-precision products. SLA technology is ideal for designers, jewelers, casters or mockups.more
Minimum production time due to high print speed and a large amount of equipment.
The minimum thickness of the printing layer is a quarter of the diameter of a human hair.
3D printing with polyamide
SLS technology has two competitive advantages: obtaining any geometry in combination with high strength of products. The printing process itself includes in sintering the powder with a laser in a special chamber.more
Consumables act as support during printing, so it is possible to obtain any geometry.
Strength of products
The most successful option if you want to get a stronger detail. In addition to the strength, the material is quite flexible.
3D printing with metals
SLM technology is changing the approach to the product design. The capabilities of this technology are limited only by the size of the work area.more
With proper optimization of the model, you can achieve a weight reduction of more than 50% of the part received alternatively.
The product after printing is approximately 20% stronger than the casting analogues.
