3D Printing Technologies
Full-color, multi-texture demonstration models.
Thousands of colors and dozens of textures in a single print: This is the state-of-the-art in 3D printing technology. From a fully functional mechanical prototype to an incredibly accurate model of the human heart, this printer can provide you with a demonstrable prototype complete with colors, rubber and transparent materials and variable textures.
End-use, high-strength components.
FDM is the most well known form of 3D printing. It works by melting a plastic roll of filament and extruding the material onto a substrate one layer at a time. This produces strong and versatile parts. There are hundreds of printable filaments with a myriad of properties. Impact resistant ABS, UV resistant ASA and extremely strong carbon fiber are a few materials available.
High-resolution small parts and models.
Stereolithography printing is an additive manufacturing process that uses an ultraviolet light source on a vat of photosensitive resin. This process produces very accurate and high resolution parts. SLA is often used for micro-scale components, jewelry and metal casting.
Laser-based technology that uses powdered metals.
In Metal 3D Printing, similar to Laser Sintering, a high-powered laser selectively binds together particles on the powder bed while the machine distributes even layers of metallic powder. Support structures are automatically generated and built simultaneously in the same material, and are later manually removed.
