WHAT IS 3D PRINTING

3D printing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model.

3D printing is a additive processes(FDM), where an object is created by laying down successive layers of  material.

The technology finds use in the fields of industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction, automotive, aerospace, medical industries, education, geographic information systems, civil engineering, and many others.

The use of additive manufacturing takes virtual designs from computer aided design (CAD) or animation software and transforms them into thin, virtual, horizontal layers.

Our 3D printer then reads in  this data from the  CAD drawing and lays down successive layers of ABS plastic. These layers, which correspond  to the virtual cross section from the CAD model, are joined  together or fused automatically to create the final shape.

The primary advantage to additive fabrication is its ability to create any shape or geometric feature.

We can create objects and shapes witch is impossible to do using any other manufacturing method.

Made from tough ABS  Thermoplastic, these models are ideal for Form Fit and Functional prototypes and Architectural models.
