About Project

Imagine tiny flight attendants, meticulously crafted and bursting with color – that's the magic of PolyJet 3D printing! These custom-made figures, designed for an airline company, capture the essence of the profession in stunning detail.

Dressed in miniature versions of the airline's smart uniform, complete with lapels, buttons, and even neckties or scarves on some, the figures exude elegance. Arranged on what appears to be a scaled-down runway, the scene is a delightful embodiment of the aviation theme.

The intricate design goes beyond just clothing. Their size is playfully highlighted as one figure is held between two fingers, emphasizing their petite stature and adding to their charm. In the background, a hint of a potentially moving airplane completes the picture, suggesting these flight attendants are ready for their next adventure in the skies.

These PolyJet 3D printed models are a testament to the incredible detail and full-color capabilities of this printing technology. For any company looking for unique and high-quality promotional items, FacFox's full-color 3D printing services offer endless possibilities.

Solution

  • Step 1: Digital Model Preparation. The 3D digital models of the flight attendants, refined from the initial scans, were meticulously prepared for printing. This involved ensuring that the file formats were compatible with the Polyjet printer and that the resolution was set to capture all the fine details.
  • Step 2: Polyjet Printing. The models were directly printed using Polyjet technology. This process involved jetting layers of curable liquid photopolymer onto a build tray. Each layer was immediately cured by ultraviolet light, building the models one thin layer at a time. The Polyjet printer used multiple materials, including a range of colored photopolymers, allowing the models to be printed in full color and with varying textures.
  • Step 3: Support Removal. After printing, the models were taken from the build tray, and any support material used during the printing process was carefully removed. Polyjet technology typically uses a gel-like support material that can be easily washed away without damaging the intricate details of the models.
  • Step 4: Curing. The models underwent a final curing phase to ensure that the photopolymers were fully hardened and the colors were set. This step was crucial for enhancing the durability and stability of the models.
  • Step 5: Quality Inspection. Each model was closely inspected to ensure that the print quality met the high standards required for these custom pieces. The inspection focused on the accuracy of the details, the smoothness of the surfaces, and the vibrancy of the colors.
  • Step 6: Finishing Touches. Although the models were printed in full color and required no painting, some finishing touches were applied to enhance their appearance. This included a clear coat to protect the colors and give the models a more polished look.
  • Step 7: Packaging for Delivery. The completed models were then carefully packaged to protect them during transportation. Special attention was given to cushioning and securing the models to prevent any movement that could cause damage.
  • Step 8: Delivery to Client. Finally, the packaged models were delivered to the client, ready to be admired for their craftsmanship and the technological marvel of Polyjet 3D printing.
