3D printing

3D printing is invaluable especially for creative people from industrial design and architecture. 3D printing is an additive process, the resulting component (physical model) is created by the gradual layering of materials (plastic, photopolymer, etc.)   The most well-known methods are FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling), SLA / DLP (Stereolithography Apparatus), SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) Print input is a modified file from source data or formats such as STL. OBJ.

3D printing and manufacturing

We offer complete 3D printing services. Advice, design of a 3D model, preparation of printing and realization. We provide 3D printing of your data from your data, but we are also able to model the object on the basis of the supplied documentation (drawings, photos, real objects, but also your ideas and sketches) We print using FDM with X, Y Y axis 0.05 mm Z-axis. The space for 3D printing is 220 x 220 x 200 mm. However, after editing, even larger models can be printed. Printouts can be collected in Brno or Prostějov. Materials (PLA, ABS, PET, PA or FLEX) are available in different color designs. For modeling your model with an idea and function.

3D printing and materials for FDM

PLA (polylactic acid)

The most common material for 3D printing. Great advantage is easy printing. PLA is a biodegradable polyester product of plant material made from corn or potato starch or cane. Used extensively for good mechanical properties. When used outdoors, it must be protected from UV radiation. The material is brittle. Temperature resistance is around 50 ° C. It is soluble in sodium hydroxide.

ABS (Akrylonitrilbutadienstyren)

is a thermoplastic industrial copolymer that is resistant to mechanical damage. Especially suitable for functional components, it has good material properties. It is stiff, tough, resistant to low and high temperatures, low absorption, health-conscious. It is resistant to acids, hydroxides, hydrocarbons, oils, fats. ABS is very easy to work on. It is suitable for further surface treatment, well sanded, can also be glued

PET (Polyethylene terephthalate)

For 3D printing, its derivative is PET-G glycol, the fiber is less brittle and highly impact-resistant. PETG fiber combines ABS properties (stronger, more resistant to temperatures, more durable) and PLA (easy printing). The risk of shrinkage is not so great. It is fully recyclable.

PA (NYLON)

It is a very compact polyamide. It is a strong and durable material with high flexibility in thin layers but with very high adhesion between the layers. Its low coefficient of friction and high melting temperature is an excellent choice for 3D printing of functional and technical parts. Nylon is very sensitive to moisture. The fiber must be absolutely dry. If this is not the case, bubbles will form in the material. The dry nylon fiber prints smooth objects with a glossy surface. It is not naturally degradable.

TP (FLEX)

These are thermoplastic elastomers, made from a mixture of hard plastic polymers and soft rubber materials. They contain ingredients. They can be oil, filler and more. These materials are closer to the properties of rubber materials in particular. Used for 3D prints where flexibility is important. For your own 3D printing, these are more complicated for implementation.
