3D PRINTING SERVICES
We offer both DLP for high-detail prints and FDM for the manufacturing of large functional objects. We are more than happy to help you determine the best process for your project.
3D PRINTING TECHNOLOGY
FDM is a 3D printing method where a layer of material is melted and fused while it is positioned in a structured way to create an object. FDM is useful when doing rapid-prototyping or when you need large format functional prints.
DLP stands for digital light processing and is a type of vat polymerization. Vat polymerization 3D printing technologies make use of a (liquid) photopolymer resin which is able to cure (solidify) under a light source. DLP creates high detail objects with a smooth finish but is limited to smaller objects.
3d printing guideline
STL and OBJ are preferred for all 3D printing materials.
File preparations may be required for STP/STEP, 3DS, 3DM and DWG.
All models should be scaled 1:1 as per intended final print size.
FDM PLASTIC: 500 x 500 x 500mm and 605 x 305 x 205mm
DLP RESIN: 155 x 115 x 65mm
Layer height: minimum 0.1mm, typically 0.2mm
Precision Tolerances: +/- 1mm
Overhang Support: Max 45 degree overhangs over 45 degrees will require support materials.
Max Bridging: 5mm, surface finish will sag and deteriorate beyond this limit.
Minimum detail size: 0.8mm
Minimum supported wall thickness: 1mm, 2mm if unsupported.
Minimum supported wire thickness: 1mm, 2mm if unsupported.
Infill Density: 0% to 100%
Bending Strength: 59-70MPa
Extension Strength: 36-52MPa
Elongation at Break: 11%-22%
