3D printers synthesize data into successive layers of material creating a physical part. They create one or many parts of any shape or geometry. The speed of 3D printers allow fast turnaround of design and engineering parts.
Design specifications of the part determine the printing materials and methods to be used. Our studio uses Stereo-lithography (SLA) and Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printers.
SLA (Stereolithography) is a resin 3D printing process. It produces high-resolution prototypes and end-use parts. SLA printing offers fine features and a smooth surface finish. Engineering resins offer high-temperature, castable, flexible and ABS like properties.
FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) is the simplest, most popular form of 3D printing. It is a material extrusion method of additive manufacturing. A thermoplastic filament extruded through a nozzle layer by layer creates a part. We print in ABS, PLA and Nylon.
