What is a 3D printing service
3D printing is an exciting technology that turns you digital 3D designs into actual physical objects that can be used for jigs, prototypes, tooling components such as the 3d printed work holding fixture illustrated left or even finished production parts.
A 3D printer is a machine that creates objects from plastic or other materials using an additive manufacturing process. Additive manufacturing produces objects in a succession of layers from the bottom, up. This is the opposite of traditional subtractive manufacturing processes, which produce objects by cutting material away from a block to create the shape desired.
Using the latest technology
We are a progressive business and are always looking to incorporate new ideas into our business and this l 3d printing service is the latest addition that we can offer our customers. We would be happy to quote you for one off and small batch 3 dimensional print work. We have a Stratsys Dimension 1200 ES with a build envelope of 250 x 250 x 300. In the example image right you can see 3d printed abs aerodynamic shapes used for a wind tunnel experiment
About the The Dimension 1200es 3D printer
The Dimension 1200es features the largest build envelope available in their Design Series Performance 3D Printer. Powered by FDM Technology, it prints in nine colors to produce durable ABS thermoplastic parts. This 3D printer allows us to choose fine resolution or faster printing, with layer thicknesses of 0.254 mm (0.010 in.) or 0.33 mm (0.013 in.).
If you have a design that you would like printed please contact us and we will be pleased to help.
In order to print your designs we need a drawing in .stl format (standard tessellation language).
