  • What is 3D printing?
    3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a process of creating three-dimensional objects by layering material (such as plastic, metal, or resin) based on a digital model. It allows you to transform a digital design into a physical object.
  • How does 3D printing work?
    3D printing works by slicing a digital model into thin layers and then building the object layer by layer. The printer reads the design file and deposits material (in liquid, powder, or filament form) based on the instructions from the computer. The material solidifies or fuses together to create the final object.
  • What can I make with a 3D printer?
    3D printers are versatile and can create a wide range of objects. Common applications include prototyping, product design, jewelry, customized accessories, architectural models, prosthetics, educational models, and even food items. The possibilities are extensive, limited only by the materials and printer capabilities
  • What are the advantages of 3D printing?
    3D printing offers several advantages, such as: Design freedom: It allows for complex geometries and intricate designs that traditional manufacturing methods may find challenging. Rapid prototyping: Ideas can be quickly turned into physical prototypes, speeding up the product development process. Customization: Objects can be easily tailored to individual needs or preferences, making it ideal for personalized products. Reduced waste: It is an additive process, meaning only the necessary material is used, minimizing waste compared to subtractive manufacturing. On-demand production: Items can be produced as needed, reducing storage costs and enabling decentralized manufacturing.
  • What are the limitations of 3D printing?
    While 3D printing has numerous benefits, it also has some limitations: Print speed: 3D printing can be time-consuming, especially for large or complex objects, as it builds them layer by layer. Material restrictions: Different printers work with specific materials, limiting the range of options available. Each material may have its own strengths and weaknesses. Cost: The initial investment in a 3D printer can be expensive, and depending on the material and size of the object, printing costs can add up. Quality and finishing: Achieving high levels of surface finish and fine details can be challenging, requiring additional post-processing or specialized equipment.
  • When should I use resin 3d printing?
    You can use resin printing whenever you want, although resin printing is more efficient for small scaled models or high detail models. Resin printing is also ideal for orthodontics, for example when dentists scan teeth and proceed to align them with a 3d software to later print the jaw images and recreate them in resin to work with them for the production of aligners or crowns.
  • What type of materials can be engraved and cut with a laser cutter.
    A laser cutter can cut, raster, and engrave different materials. CUTTING.- paper, cardboard, plywood, mdf, acrylics ENGRAVING.- paper, cardboard, plywood, mdf, acylics, metal, leather RASTER.- paper, cardboard, plywood, mdf, acylics, metal, leather
