PROFESSIONAL PRINTING SERVICES
ONCE AGAIN – IF YOU CAN DREAM IT, WE CAN PRINT IT! BUT WITH OUR PROFESSIONAL PRINT SERVICES, IT CAN BE IN FULL COLOR AND HIGH DEFINITION! Any color in the spectrum can be duplicated with such precision that you can see textures as fine as a model’s eyelashes. Both personal and business applications are limitless! Our 3D Systems machine produces detailed objects by incrementally layering and bonding successive cross-sections of a fine powder. It operates like an inkjet printer with powder instead of paper, adding a new layer every pass. Accuracy for full color objects is excellent at 600 x 540 dpi with layers as thin as .0035" or .089mm (the typical thickness of a sheet of paper). Parts can be sanded, drilled, tapped, painted and even electroplated, which further expands the options available for finished part characteristics. SEE BELOW TO START NOW!
Once the object has finished printing, it is de-powdered and processed to have a sandstone matte finish. 3D printed models are great for testing prototype designs to resolve potential problems early on.
Strength should be treated like porcelain. Detail can be high if the model is designed properly.
We offer professional in-house design assistance to make every detail pop for you. Models are rough like sandstone; at your request, we can finish them to showroom quality. Models are standard in a matte finish; however, we can give the model any final finish you may want by requesting it up front in the quoting process. Minimum wall thickness is 2mm.
Models are not water resistant and will fade if they get wet and if left out in the sun. We do have a method to make them more resistant to the elements, however they are still not suitable for fish tanks or outdoor use. If you see a printing type that we do not currently offer, please contact us. We have a network of affiliates that can provide literally anything that you want.
Rapid prototyping is primarily used to create models for testing, to show customers what the finished product will look like or at other times when the final result cannot be visualized without a model. We will print the model to your scale in full color. Our maximum build size is 10"x15"x8" (254 x 381 x 203 mm).
Another benefit of Rapid Prototyping is time saved. Under normal circumstances, we can print and deliver a model to you within a week.
In product development, creating an exact model for review can prevent mistakes in mold making and tooling, saving you valuable time and money.
3D Printing technologies have replaced crafted model making for many industries because it allows a model to be made with precise details with less turn-around time. Our models are printed in full color so there is no need for extensive post-processing work as in other methods.
Our “3D Systems Project 660Pro” uses a sandstone-like material. The finished product will have photo quality color, a light texture and be about as strong as porcelain. Like porcelain, if dropped it may break.
