3D PRINTING LAB
3D printing lab is powered with gorgeous and powerful Brahma 3 Anvil which can print designs upto 240x240x200 mm, supports temperatures upto 350 degrees, achieves a resolution of 50 micron per layer and also has multi-material printing like PLA, ABS, Nylon and PC.
Introduction to 3D Printing
3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing technology where a three dimensional object is created by laying down successive layers of material. It is also known as rapid prototyping, is a mechanized method whereby 3D objects are quickly made on a reasonably sized machine connected to a computer containing blueprints for the object.
3D Printers are machines that produce physical 3D models from digital data by printing layer by layer. It can make physical models of objects either designed with a CAD program or scanned with a 3D Scanner. The 3D printer works on FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) where it extrudes molten plastic and builds models layer by layer. It is used in a variety of industries including jewelry, footwear, industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction, automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education and consumer products.
Using such a powerful device we are able to create various design which are needed for project in R&D. The designs made using 3D printer are shown below.
The process for 3D printing
1. Design 3D model using any 3D design tools like 123D design
2. For slicing we need to use Cura which is supported by any 3D printer
3. In some cases, for changing any design which is already designed we can use meshlab, netfabb softwares
