About Project

3D printing can help our clients rapidly iterate on their smart power tools, saving time and money. Rather than produce expensive injection-molded prototypes, they were able to cheaply print multiple iterations of the enclosures for their drills, drivers, and attachments – allowing them to produce functional tools at a fraction of the cost, reducing design time and risk.

Solution

  • Step 1: As the main body of the electric drill is just a one-piece enclosure and assembled with two black accessories, we suggest printing them with SLA Tough Resin and SLA Black Resin. The former one has a yellow tone but has better stiffness and impact resistance than generic resin, and produces parts with improved mechanical properties.
  • Step 2: After the examination of the model, we arrange the parts in software and add necessary supports. Our industrial 3D printer can print all 10 pieces in one batch. The layer thickness we set is 0.05mm.
  • Step 3: When printing is completed, rinse the model with IPA and post-cure it with UV. Cut off all the supports, then polish with sandpaper. Then try to assemble them and adjust the details.
