3D Printing: How it Works

It’s hard to believe there’s already a history of 3D printing. Since the 1990s, the precision and material range of 3D printing has advanced to the degree that some 3D printing techniques have become almost rudimentary. One of the main advantages of 3D printing is the ability to produce complex shapes while using less material than traditional manufacturing.

The concept of 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, covers a range of processes in which material is solidified under computer control to create a three-dimensional object. To achieve this, materials such as liquid molecules and powder grains are typically fused together layer by layer.

Using the latest technology, Duggal employs several 3D printing techniques to create realistic prototypes for various creative applications. Our designers use the below methods to create stunningly accurate solid objects from digital files.

Print

With the ability to print 2.5 times larger than any other desktop prosumer, the CubePro allows for ultra-high-resolution settings of 70-micron thin print layers.

Scan

Remember the stress of saving the film in your disposable camera for the perfect Kodak moment? Those days have long passed, and now you’re able to scan your memories in 3D. For on-the-go 3D printing abilities, there’s a mobile option. With the new iSense, we’re able to scan moments with your family and friends, or simply everyday happenings using your iPhone or iPad. The iSense’s integrated design makes it easy to capture every dimension, any time, anywhere.

Material

If you’re in search of 3D printing with Polyactide (PLA), Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) or Nylon plastic cartridges, Duggal’s 3D printing encompasses all of the above. As an industry leader with state-of-the-art facilities, Duggal’s experts can lead you through the world of 3D printing. Contact us today to get started.
