How it Works

The 3D printing technology works by creating a 3D physical model directly from digital data, layer by layer, turning concepts and ideas into real, physical 3D models that you can hold, examine and evaluate.

A 3D CAD file is imported into the printer software. The software slices the file into thin cross sectional slices, which are fed to the 3D printer. The printer creates the model one layer at a time by spreading a layer of powder, inkjet printing binder and colour in the cross section of the part. The process is repeated until every layer is printed and the part is ready to be removed. Excess powder is removed and recycled and the model is then treated with a hardening agent. Models larger than the printer size envelope can be produced by joining multiple models together with a gluing compound.

If you do not have a 3D CAD model then we can produce the required 3D model for you from your 2D drawings, sketches or ideas.
