3D-printing

Our 3D laboratory is working with following models characteristics:

  • the maximum dimensions of the end product (HxWxD) 230 x 225 x 205 mm, by the  layer thickness of 20 microns (0.02 mm)
  • the maximum dimensions of the end product (HxWxD) 750 x 450 x 530 mm, by the layer thickness of 100 microns (0.1 mm)

It should be noted that our equipment allows achieving maximal accuracy by reconciling of the applied layer thickness, what affects the good appearance and performance characteristics of the product.

In manufacture of the model, depending on its purpose could be used the following types of high-grade plastic:

- ABS

ABS plastic is one of the commonly used 3D printer material.  Its advantages are heat stability and reliability of the final item.  ABS is very useful for making usual thinks like toys or spare parts for cars.

- PLA

PLA plastic is not exposed to strong deformation during printing, what allows creating precision models. Products of this type of plastic are more smooth and shiny. It is made from organic materials, it is a kind of biodegradable plastic, what means that the products, which do not pass additional protective treatment will eventually be destroyed (the average life of about 2 years).

- Laywood (деревянное волокно)

The most common at the moment - it LAYWOO-D3. It is a wood based filament, composed of 40% wood fibers, and the rest of the PLA plastic, has imitation of the wood structure, and the smell. Perfect for print layouts of houses made of wood, as well as the landscape.

- Nylon

Its characteristics are very similar to the ABS plastic, but nylon is toxic and can absorb moisture. The layers  of nylon cool down longer than by ABS. However, nylon has a lot of flexibility, so it's perfect for printing levers, gears and spare parts for medical equipment. At the moment, one of the most common materials is Nylon 618

- Laybrick

The Laybrick filament can create from smooth to very rough surface surfaces, printed element becomes very realistic grain effect inherent in sandstone that allows to simulate the surface of the stone: blocks of castles and medieval walls, stones while creating 3D-printed landscapes.

- Bendlay

This is a new modified ABS plastic, a clear, tough and bendable 3D printer material. BendLay can be used for food packaging and medical equipment. This plastic is soluble in the acetone, and has the water absorption ratio about 30%.
