  • Sparse
  • Sparse (Hexagonal)
  • Sparse (Double-dense)

It is possible to reduce weight while securing strength by changing the internal structure.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

Modeling method

Spread the Nylon powder in 0.1mm lamination pitch, irradiate laser at the specific area of the slice data to do modeling.

Use laser to melt section to be modeled. Non-sintered powders support the structure to create hollow structure modeling.

Remaining powder supports sintered parts, resulted in eliminating the need of further support material which usually is required in many other 3D printing technologies for the purpose of preventing a product from collapsing during the course of manufacturing.

Applications

Features

  • Allows to seamlessly duplicate and organize multiple parts within a 3D grid to use as much of the build space as possible for a single print.
  • Able to produce parts with complex geometries and lattice structures-no support structures needed
  • Can be finished using various post-processing methods (gluing, painting, machining)
  • Capable of designing large-scale parts (x670xy360x560mm)
  • Biocompatible material
  • Gears
  • Robotic arm & hands
  • Robotic arm & hands
  • Rebar arrangement model
  • Honeycomb structures

Powder Bed Fusion (PBF)

Modeling method

Spread PPS powder, irradiate laser at the specific area of the slice data to do modeling.

Use laser to melt section to be modeled. Non-sintered powders support the structure to create hollow structure modeling.

Binder Jetting(BJT)

Modeling method

Spraying a liquid color binder onto a bed of gypsum powder solidifying the cross section of the object, layer by layer.

After each layer typically 0.1mm thick is spread, color binder is selectively jetted from inkjet nozzle causing the core to solidify.

Most suitable for modeling with gypsum. It does not require support structure. It is a high-speed modeling of real color model including hollow structure with one step. Detailed parts are difficult to realize and easy to break.

Application

Features

  • The binder is colored with ink, allowing for full color 3D prints across the entire CMYK color palette range.
  • Rapid modeling of 28mm in 1 hour
