What is 3D Printing?
3D printing is a process that uses layers of material to create 3D objects. It is known as additive manufacturing. A 3D printer follows a digital design file to create the object. 3D printing can use various materials including plastics and metals.
What can 3D Printing do for me?
Personalized functional prints are a great example, things like customized stamps, or branded displays, can be a great way to add personality and interest to your work.
Another common use, is for replacement parts which are no longer manufactured. Or for a very specific part which requires precise measurements. These can be functional mechanical parts, or artistic enhancements and decorations.
The options are virtually limitless.
Models can be accurately designed using CAD software, for when precision counts, or digitally sculpted for a more artistic and expressive design.
In a variety of materials.
There are many materials with varying properties to select from, each with hundreds of options.
PLA – The most common, inexpensive, fairly durable, massive variety.
PETG – A tough, slightly flexible, material available with different textures.
TPU – A very flexible, rubbery material which can bend and twist.
We always keep the go-to materials on hand, but there is a wide variety of filaments to print with. If you would like a specific filament custom-ordered, please contact us, and we can arrange this service.
