About Project

The main design trend of coffee machines is retro style, and the student has designed this futuristic style coffee maker as her graduation project. Made in SLA generic resin, it was painted in silver to reveal a space-age feel.


  • Step 1: The client builds the model in CAD, and exports the STL files for printing. Our engineer would help her examine the models, hollow them and split them into parts for the convenience of printing and painting.
  • Step 2: We arrange the parts in software and add necessary supports. Then 3D print them with SLA Tough 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 and marks with scissors and graters, then polish with sandpaper. Try to assemble all the parts and polish to make the parts fit each other.
  • Step 4: Spray with putties and paint the parts into white and silver with airbrushes, and screenprint the logos, then coat with clear acrylic oil. The coating layer should be thin and even so the assembly accuracy won’t be affected.
  • Step 5: Finally, assemble the parts into one piece and bond them with a superglue.
