High-gloss finish of 3D printed objects

In 3D Print Finishes by CoenLauwerijssen

Post Processing Vaporize Service 3D Prontoprint offers a post processing vaporize service to turn 3D printed objects into high-gloss finished parts. These 3D printed parts look in many cases very much like injection molded parts. The typical layered look of a normal FDM printed part is completely gone. Especially with organic shapes the results look stunning, but also for prototype enclosures the results are impressive. At the moment 3D Prontoprint is offering the premium service on a limited scale for clients that request this. Please ask 3D Prontoprint about the possibilities. Not only better looks… Besides the improved high-gloss looks …

3D printing of drone parts

In Geen categorie by Barry Peet

3D Printing  of drone parts is one of the expertises of 3D Prontoprint. ABS material is perfectly suited for the printing of drone parts: the material properties of ABS delivers drone parts of high strength. Much better than most other materials used mostly for 3D printing. Benefits of 3D printing drone parts in ABS PLA material is easier to print and the most used, but the mechanical properties of ABS are superior in terms of strength. PLA is more brittle and decrease the mechanical properties over time. In addition, PLA has the property to be softer, for example, when it …
