A Brief Introduction of Common 3D Printing Technology

Wednesday, September 2, 2015 3:05:29 AM America/Los_Angeles

3D printing is the process of making a three-dimensional object from a digital file. The digital file, a three-dimensional design, is created using computer software. 3D printing is the member of the additive manufacturing (AM) family. Additive manufacturing is the process in which the object that needs to be printed is created by adding material to the object, layer by layer. The material is added till the final product is created.

While all 3D printers create objects using additive methods (the opposite of a CNC machine), different approaches exist to actually physically depositing the material. Now, let’s have a brief review of the most common 3D printing technologies:

There is no doubt that 3D printing technology’s concept is good – it has many advantages than substractive manufacturing in some special applications. But we can see that the 3D printing technology was applied in limited fields and many 3D printing technology relative companies are struggling to survive. The root cause is partially due to the fact that the technology is not good enough now; also because 3D printing technology providers are lack of knowledge in target application fields.

With 3D printers, people can make things for themselves, for fun. Now more and more enthusiasts or makers share their designs on the Internet. Many creations are quite attractive that one may want to create some day. Recently, we came across this Bubble Bucket which aroused the memory of our childhood. What’s different is this is a much larger design which makes much more bubbles.

 

This bubble machine is so impressive by just looking at its picture. As the designer said “the machine has the ability to blow between 2,000 and 14,000 bubbles per minute. It includes 40 bubble wands, each including 6 ‘bubblers’. A full chain rotation is completed every 10 seconds, and typically between 1 and 10 bubbles are successfully formed per bubbler each time.” Can you image the view of the yard filled with multiple bubbles? Using this Bubble Bucket for fun must be awesome, not only for children, but also for adults.

 

Do you like bubble fun? Well, the designer Scratchhax shared the bubble bucket 3D files and also the assembly instructions for free on Thingiverse. For full news of this bubble machine, please view http://3dprint.com/84721/3d-printed-bubble-machine/.

Although Reprapper Tech now offers many color options of filament, skin color is one that many customers said that they would expect. Some customers want to use filament with skin color to print something unique, like human body, or they can print their baby model. Knowing there is demand for this special color, Reprapper’s R&D department decided to develop a series of skin color filament.

 

Reprapper’s Skin Color Series include PLA and flexible filament, each with four colors – skin pink, skin black, skin beige and skin white. We offer four different colors so that people can pick the skin color they prefer. With this special color filament, makers can print something requiring a skin color.

 

For PLA skin color filament, it prints just as well as other Reprapper PLA filaments. We recommend to use 210°C as the print temperature (which still differs depending on printers). Heated bed is not needed when using blue tape to get better prints.

 

Here are the prints we tested using PLA skin color filament:

Flexible filament with skin color is another filament which some customers asked for. Some medical students or staff want to use this color filament to print human bodies for study & research. After some tests, the recommended temperature for printing Reprapper’s skin color flexible filament is 200°C (still differs among diverse 3d printers). There is no need for a heated bed, but blue tape can help to get good results.

 

View the tested prints we got here:

So do you like Reprapper’s skin color filament series? If interested, do not hesitate to have a try to create something with this unique color.

Easy to remove supporting material – Copper PLA

Wednesday, January 28, 2015 12:24:22 AM America/Los_Angeles

Sometimes we need to print models with overhang or gap between parts. After the print is finished, the support material has to be removed so we get the desired print. We all know that when we 3d print with PLA, the support removal can be hard whether we dissolve with solution or just break with tools. In this respect, Copper PLA is quite different from normal PLA. With copper powder mixed into PLA, copper filament turns to be very easy to remove any supporting parts.Read More
