About Project

If you are looking for a way to create a unique and eye-catching intricate ball, you should consider using binder jetting technology. Binder jetting is a 3D printing process that uses a binder to glue powder particles together, layer by layer, to form a solid object.

Unlike other 3D printing methods, binder jetting does not involve heat or lasers, which means it can print with a variety of materials, such as metals, ceramics, sand and polymers. Binder jetting is ideal for batch production of small and medium-size products, as it can print multiple parts at once in a large build volume.

One of the best places to get your binder jetting 3D printing done is FacFox, a leading online platform for custom 3D printing and manufacturing.

  • Step 1: After confirming the requirements with the client, the ball was suggested to be printed with binder jetting technology and stainless steel powder.
  • Step 2: In metal binder jetting, a liquid binder was selectively applied to join powder particles, layer by layer. The process began by spreading a thin layer of powder, with printheads strategically depositing droplets of binder into the powder bed. The printing plate was then lowered and another layer of powder was spread.
  • Step 3: When printing was completed, the extra material was removed for recycling. Cleaned the surface of the model with compressed air. There were no supports that need to be removed.
  • Step 4: To achieve high density, the part needed to be post-sintered or infiltrated to fill the voids left by the binding agent being burnt away. Bronze infiltration of stainless steel could achieve a final density of 95%.
  • Step 5: Smoothened the surface with electrolytic polishing technique and coated them into silver with electroplating.
