About Project

This lifeboat model is customed for a student as his graduation project. We 3D printed the main body of the boat, and its propeller, paddles, and other tiny accessories.

Solution

  • Step 1: Our engineer would help the client examine the STL files and split the models for printing.
  • Step 2: We arrange the parts in software and add necessary supports. Then 3D print them with SLA Generic Resin. The layer thickness we set is 0.05mm and we control the tolerance within ±0.1 mm.
  • Step 3: When printing is completed, rinse the models with IPA and post-cure them with UV. Cut off all the supports, then polish with sandpaper.
  • Step 4: Spray with putty on the uneven parts and then color them according to the blueprints, and spray with a thin layer of clear acrylic oil. Finally, glue the fluorescent stickers.
