But What are Rigid Opaque photopolymers / UV resins?

Rigid Opaque photopolymers / UV resins are a multipurpose material for visual models and engineering prototypes and products.

Compared against common engineering plastics, like standard ABS, PLA or nylon, Rigid Opaque Photopolymers / UV resins are stronger and stiffer than that of these or other industrial plastics.

Rigid Opaque materials / UV resins have mechanical characteristics closer to that of an acrylic than any other typical 3D Printed plastic, making them an ideal material for fit, form & function, sales & marketing, where functional testing, patterns, prototypes and models require high finishes and tolerances, to show case your designs.

3D Printing

3D Print N Scan uses rigid opaque, UV photosensitive polymer resins, printed on our own in house STRATASYS 3D Printers, which are laid down layer by layer onto a build plate.

Throughout the process, where needed, a support material is also placed down, to support the model as it is printed, allowing overhangs to be produced.

As each successive layer is deposited, it is cured with a UV light, which means the part is ready to handle straight from the printer.

Once the part is removed from the printer, it is given a jet wash, to remove the support material, leaving your part behind.

 

After printing the part can then be sanded, to a higher degree of surface finish.

With the fine surface finish that Rigid Opaque photopolymers / UV resins produce, the part can be spray painted with any acrylic automotive primer and paint, giving you a look like that of a car body panel.

Because rigid opaque parts are produced by layers of liquid polymer, it produces a 3D printed part with unnoticeable layers, which can look like injection moulded parts, this leads to a higher degree of function and fit, than that of other 3D Printing processes, see our design rules page for some helpful tips when printing with PolyJet.

Do you require a small batch of parts?

We can provide production runs of parts for you!

If you require regular weekly / monthly batches?

Why not set up a B2B service agreement with us and take the hassle out of paying!

Safety when sailing is paramount!

So we were keen to help print the prototype TEAM O - AUTO LOCK fall arrestor!

Which was officially launched on the 14th November 2017 at the METS trade show in Amsterdam!

Why use 3D Print 'N' Scan

At 3D Print ‘N’ Scan we are committed to working with you, from concept to finished 3D Model. We have over 20 years experience in this and related fields.

From the conception of your product or design idea, we can help you take your idea to a fully working prototype or part, by listening to your requirements.

If you require functional working prototypes, parts and assemblies, with parts that move, printed in one go or individually, with or without assembly, then look no further!

We know sometimes it is hard to get your ideas across, so we take it upon ourselves, to be as understanding and as helpful as we can, to reassure you! and get the information required, whilst collaborating with you, so we can produce a RIGHT FIRST TIME product.

This in turn with 3D printing becoming an everyday commodity allows companies, individuals and entrepreneurs, to show and demonstrate to their clients and peers, their concepts and ideas.

Allowing them to hold feel and visualise the design, in turn, giving them a greater pitch and selling power, for a fraction of the cost, of current manufacturing processes.

By choosing 3D Print ‘N’ scan to produce your 3D Printed parts, you negate the need to purchase expensive 3D Printing equipment. As we take the burden from you, you also avoid the added cost of servicing, repair and employment of skilled design engineers.

At 3D Print ‘N’ Scan we use the latest equipment to produce the most intricate of models, to produce the bridges and overhangs that might be required, but don’t worry if your assembly is too big for our printer foot print, we might still be able to help you by printing the individual components and assembling your parts for you.

Why not let 3D Print ‘N’ Scan turn your digital designs into a physical reality! Simply email us your design as a digital CAD file or 2D drawing, for a free no obligation quote.
