3D Printing

3D Print N Scan uses rigid opaque, UV photosensitive polymer resins, which are laid down layer by layer onto a build plate.

Throughout the process, where needed, a support material (Full Cure 705) 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.

The part can then be polished, to a higher degree of surface finish, and coloured to a colour of your choosing.

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!

Safety when sailing is paramount!

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

Officially being 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.

To do this we offer free consultation, when you agree to use us to produce your parts.

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.

Design rules for 3D printing with Rigid Opaque Plastic

LOGO - embossEmbossed and engraved details Recommended: 0.5 mm For embossed and engraved details, we recommend a minimum line thickness of 0.5 mm and a depth of 0.5 mm. Tip: if you are putting text on your design, use a bold sans-serif font for readability, such as Arial Bold.
LOGO - featureMinimum detail size Recommended: 0.2 mm PolyJet is one of the 3D Printing processes with the highest accuracy; up to 0.2 mm is enough to create clearly visible details.
LOGO - feature Minimum feature size 1 MM Thin wires or unsupported features have to be at least 1 mm thick, as the material requires post-processing where smaller features could break.
LOGO - moving parts.. Moving or interlocking parts Recommended: 0.4 mm clearance between parts A powerful feature of PolyJet is that you can have moving and interlocking parts printed in one session. With that said, we recommend keeping a minimum space of 0.4 mm between each of the designed surfaces, unless individually printed and post processed to fit, with a higher tolerance.
LOGO - wall thickness Wall thickness Recommended: 1 mm The model's wall must be thick enough to support the model. We recommend working with a wall thickness of 1.0 mm or more for larger objects, but we can produce wall thicknesses of 0.3mm.
