About Project

If you are looking for a unique and elegant way to decorate your door, you might want to consider getting a Chinese lion head door knocker replica. These door knockers are inspired by the traditional Chinese culture and symbolism, and they can add a touch of style and charm to your entrance.

A Chinese lion head door knocker is a device that is attached to the door of a house or building to allow visitors to knock and announce their arrival. Door knockers have been used for centuries, and they often reflect the personality and taste of the owner. The door knocker in the image has the shape of a lion’s head. This is a common design for door knockers, as lions are often associated with strength and protection. In Chinese culture, lions are also considered as auspicious animals that can ward off evil and bring good luck. The lion head door knockers usually have a ring in their mouth, which can be pulled and hit against the base to produce a loud sound.

However, the door knockers in the image are not functional, but rather decorative. They are just made for display, and the rings are fixed onto the lion head bases. They also have Chinese characters on them, which mean “peace” and “fortune”. These door knockers are replicas of the ones that can be found in ancient Chinese buildings, such as temples, palaces, and mansions. They are made with a modern 3D printing technology called SLA, or stereolithography.

SLA is a 3D printing process that uses high-frequency light to solidify a liquid photopolymer resin in layers to create a solid object. SLA is one of the most widely used 3D printing technologies, and it can produce objects with high accuracy, smooth surface finish, and intricate details. SLA is also suitable for creating objects with complex shapes and curves, such as the lion head door knockers.

The SLA 3D printed Chinese lion head door knocker replicas are made by FacFox, a leading 3D printing service provider in China.

Solution

  • Step 1: The 3D models of the lion head door knockers were created using a 3D modeling software, such as Blender, SketchUp, or SolidWorks. The models were designed to have the shape, size, and details of the original door knockers, as well as the Chinese characters on them.
  • Step 2: The 3D models were uploaded to FacFox’s website and the SLA 3D printing service was selected. The material, color, and finish options were also chosen. The knockers were printed in a resin material, which is a liquid photopolymer that can be cured by light.
  • Step 3: The 3D printing process was started. A high-frequency light source, such as a laser or a projector, was used to selectively solidify the resin layer by layer, according to the 3D model. The light source moved along the X and Y axes, while the build platform moved along the Z axis. The process was repeated until the whole object was formed. The SLA 3D printing process took about an hour for each door knocker.
  • Step 4: The 3D-printed objects were removed from the build platform and washed with a solvent, such as isopropyl alcohol, to remove any excess resin. The objects were then placed in a UV curing chamber, where they were exposed to ultraviolet light to harden and strengthen the resin. The curing process took about 15 minutes for each door knocker.
  • Step 5: Then the door knockers were painted into dual colors with spray guns and brushes. The colors were either dark blue and gold, or red and gold, depending on the preference of the customer.
  • Step 6: The 3D-printed objects were inspected for quality and accuracy. Any support structures or defects were removed with a knife or a sandpaper. The objects were then polished and painted with the desired colors. The rings were fixed onto the lion head bases with glue or screws. The SLA 3D printed Chinese lion head door knocker replicas were then ready to be shipped to the customer.
