Why 3D print?

Why 3D print?

3D printing is also called additive manufacturing, a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file by successively adding material, layer by layer, in order to produce complex shapes using less material than traditional manufacturing methods.

It’s actually the opposite of subtractive manufacturing, conventional machining, casting and forging processes, where material is removed from a stock item or poured into a mold and shaped by means of dies, presses and hammers.

We use the FDM – Fused deposition modelling, this process works by melting material and extruding it through a nozzle to 3D print a cross section of an object each layer at a time. The bed moves for each new layer and this process repeats until the object is completed.

It was chosen for it’s very good ratio between investment, reliability, end product quality, and agility by accepting a very wide range of filament types.
