GET FAMILIAR WITH MATERIALS AND TOOLS

Here you will learn about the most important
technical information that will explain all aspects of 3D printing.

The quality of printouts is the result of several elements
of which the most important are the thickness of  layer and the diameter of the nozzle.
Another important aspect is the density of the infill.
In each case, we advise customer to find the best parameters for each printout.

COMMERCIAL PRINTOUTS

Wide range of materials and high accuracy allow using 3D printing
in many projects and architecture models.

Available materials:Maximum dimensions:

ABS, PLA, PET, HIPS, filament with admixtures, 
elastic filament

235x255x195 mm
260x340x340 mm

 

INDUSTRIAL PRINTOUTS

It is possible to print complex geometries. Models are printed in a temperature chamber,
which ensures durability and accuracy.
A breakable or soluble support material is used.

Available materias:Maximum dimensions:

ABS, ASA, Nylon

260x340x340 mm

 

MEDICAL PRINTOUTS

We help every customer with STL export process. Selection of material
and selection of a precise tool for a specific application according to the
customer's needs. Used for pre-operational planning, being an invaluable
help  in the development of complex surgical procedures.

Available materials:Maximum dimensions:

PLA, PET

Mechanical treatment of models:

Post-processing of finished 3D models

We have facilities to perform advanced post-processing of the models, both chemical and mechanical. 3D printing can be a semi-finished part of the final product with specific strength properties as well as aesthetic surface. To achieve this we use following methods:

  • smoothing the surface using spray and chemical methods
  • painting and varnishing in a wide range of colors
  • milling, turning, drilling, threading
  • bonding

What kind of materials do we use?

ABS:

- matt surface of the printout,
- wide range of filament’s colours,
- easy finishing treatment,
- due to increased durability, ABS is used to print machine parts,
- applicable in prototyping and productions of utility models,
- material susceptible to shrinkage,
- increased resistance to high temperature,
- low resistance to UV rays.

PLA:

- the easiest for 3D printing due to low shrinkage of the material,
- optimal in most cases,
- smooth and shiny print surface,
- wide range of filament’s colours,
- very good projection of complex geometries,
- used for printing figurines, marketing gadgets, complicated elements,
- used for small as well as for much larger prints,
- problematic during final processing of prints,
- low resistance of elevated temperatures,
- fully biodegradable,
- low water adsorption,
- high resistance to UV rays.

ASA:

- ABS derivative,
- less material shrinkage than ABS,
- high temperature resistance,
- increased mechanical strength,
- matt surface of the printout,
- resistance to UV rays,
- easy finishing treatment,
- used for printing enclosures, prototopes, utility models and machine parts.

HIPS:

- matt surface of the printout,
- very good projection of complex geometries,
- less material shrinkage than ABS,
- used for printing enclosures or precision elements, eg in prosthetics.

PET:

- shiny printout surface,
- can be transparent, and the degree of transparency depends on the thickness of the printout walls,
- high impact resistance,
- increased mechanical strength,
- low water adsorption (hydrophobic material),
- low material shrinkage,
- used for printing enclosures, decorative elements, thin-walled prints, machine elements and prototypes.

- shiny surface that feels like rubber in touch,
- flexible printouts, the degree of deformation can be controlled by choosing the density of the model’s filling (the less filled model, the more flexible)
- used for making flexible prints and gaskets,
- problematic during finishing treatment,
- very high adhesion between layers – heavy printout to tear,
- resitance to UV rays,
- resitance to oils and greases.

- materials imitating wood, steel, copper, bronze
- used mainly as decorative prints and prototypes
- possibility of post-treatment in the form of grinding, which gives a specific print surface depending on the matrial used
- prints form these materials are stiff and fragile
