FUSED DEPOSITION MODELING "FDM"

Accurate, fast, and economical, FDM is the cornerstone of Additive Manufacturing. Great for quick prototypes or custom everyday products. There are a lot of different materials and colors available. Click here for more info and materials

FUSED DEPOSITION MODELING "FDM" WITH ONYX

ONYX is a Nylon fiber, infused with chopped carbon developed by Markforged. When printed with continuous fiber reinforcement, it can replace Aluminum, as well as certain Steel components. Click here for material specs

STEREOLITHOGRAPHY "SLA"

The most precise print requires SLA. SLA is great for making extremely accurate prototypes and functional components. Click here for more information and materials available.

 

FDM/FFF "EXTRUDED"

FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) and FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) is often used interchangeably and is exactly the same process.

3D Printing Fiber

FDM/FFF uses production grade thermoplastic (Recyclable plastics) and is the first choice for 3D prototyping for most applications.

Utilizes melted and extruded thermoplastics to provide a highly accurate and colorful part

Can create parts with details and cavities, not usually possible with standard manufacturing processes

Great choice of colors available

The most cost effective additive manufacturing process

Creates strong, durable, colorful, and dimensionally stable parts (depending on material!)

Max build volume

270x200x200 mm (10.6x8.1x8.1 in)

Best for :

Proof of concept (Fit and form components)

General prototyping

Custom accessories with large color choice


Standard Materials :

Standard thermoplastics, such as ABS, PLA, PC, PETG, TPU, Nylon, and their various blends including co-polymers. There is a great choice of colors available, non stock materials can be ordered on demand.

 

FUSED DEPOSITION MODELING "FDM" WITH ONYX

ONYX is a carbon fiber composite material developed by Markforged. It is Nylon based material infused with chopped carbon fiber that can be reinforced during printing with various continuous fiber (carbon, kevlar, etc...). This makes our prints as strong, sometimes stronger, than its aluminum equivalent - yet up to 80% lighter!

This FDM technology uses ONYX materials, reinforced with continuous carbon fiber, Kevlar fiber, fiberglass, or High Temperature fiberglass.

This is one of the best technology for real world, usable parts, and has already replaced a lot of aluminum components in very diverse applications.

Utilizes melted and extruded ONYX to provide a highly accurate, very strong part

Can create parts with details and cavities not possible with standard manufacturing processes

Can be reinforced with continuous fiber (for a part as strong as metal)

An effective, economical additive manufacturing process for real world application

Creates strong, durable, and accurate stable parts

Max build volume

330 x 270 x 200 mm (13 x 10.6 x 7.9 in)

Best for :

Test prototype (this is a part you can use)

General prototyping

Urgent repair component

Tooling

Fixtures

End Of Arm Tooling (robot)

Really, any kind of custom part made of aluminum!


Standard Materials :

ONYX, ONYX FR, ONYX ESD, Nylon


Continuous fibers :

Carbon fiber, Kevlar, Fiberglass, HSHT Fiberglass

 

STEREOLITHOGRAPHY "SLA"

Stereolithography "SLA" offers the highest precision for the most accurate parts

20200723_222900.jpg

Stereolithography was the world’s first 3D printing technology, invented in the 1980s, and is still one of the most popular technologies for professionals. SLA 3D printers use a laser to cure liquid resin into hardened plastic in a process called photopolymerization.


SLA resin 3D printers have become vastly popular for their ability to produce high-accuracy, isotropic, and watertight prototypes and parts in a range of advanced materials with fine features and smooth surface finish. SLA resin formulations offer a wide range of optical, mechanical, and thermal properties to match those of standard, engineering, and industrial thermoplastics.

Prototypes can be created with extremely high quality, finely detailed features (thin walls, sharp corners, etc…), and complex geometrical shapes.


Layer thicknesses can be made as low as 25 μm, with minimum feature sizes between 50 and 250 μm.

SLA provides the tightest dimensional tolerances of any rapid prototyping or additive manufacturing technology: +/- 0.005″ (0.127 mm) for the first inch, and an additional 0.002″ for each additional inch.

Print surfaces are smooth.

More and more types of resin are available, from durable, to castable wax, and approved medical resins.
