1. What is 3d printing and how does 3d printing work ?

Ans : 3D printing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The process involves adding a material layer one at a time. In 3D printing, no special tools are required (for example, a cutting tool with certain geometry or a mold).


2. What is the type of digital file format required for 3D printing?

Ans : Mainly used format for 3D printing is .stl file , .obj and .3mf file but you can also provide us with .step file, .iges file or you can send us any 3D cad model file.


3.What are the common types of material used for 3D printing?

Ans : Common materials used for 3D printing are mainly

MATERIAL PLA
(Polylacticacid)
ABS
(Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)
PETG
(Polyethyleneterephthalate)
TPU
(Thermoplastic polyurethane)
EXTRUDER TEMPERATURE(⁰C) 190-220 220-240 220-250 210-230
BED TEMPERATURE (⁰C) 60 80 50-75 25-60
PROPERTIES Hard but brittle, minimum warp and shrinkage Strong, ductile, wear resistant and heat tolerant. Durable, impact and heat resistant. Elastic, and impact resistant, more flexible
APPLICATIONS Cosmetic prints, prototypes, desk toys, low-stress applications. Interlocking parts like gear, lithophane ,for product development Mechanical parts and snap fit enclosures Stoppers, belts, caps, phone cases, bumpers

4. Is 3D printing possible in different colors?

Ans : Yes! it is possible. The most common colors used are white, black, red, yellow and blue. But an important aspect is that the part/prototype printed can be colored in different colors as per the requirement of the customers.


5. What are the different processes in 3D printing?

Ans :
  • Fused deposition modeling (FDM)
  • Stereo lithography(SLA)
  • Digital Light Processing(DLP)
  • Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

6. Why 3D printing in present times is preferred over traditional manufacturing methods?

Ans : Primarily Iterations are easier and cheaper to make and you don’t need expensive molds or tools. Besides printing, the process is also used for rapid manufacturing due to following advantages -

3D PRINTING TRADITIONAL MANUFACTURING
VOLUME Small batch, highly customized Large batch, limited customization
COST PER UNIT Variable cost High fixed cost
TIME TO MARKET Fast to moderate (less than 1 day) Moderate to very slow
COMPLEXITY Less higher than simpler parts Much higher than simpler parts


7. Are your 3D printing services available on a pan India basis ?

Ans : Yes! our 3D printing services are available all over India .
