Solution

  • Step 1: Designing. A digital model was designed, featuring a scaled-down Chinese memorial archway with dragons entwined around the columns and a ‘luck’ character on top. Small lions were included at the base, and intricate details were added to convey the relatives’ respects.
  • Step 2: Printing Preparation. The model was processed into a printable file, tailored for the Binder Jet 3D printer’s specifications.
  • Step 3: Material Preparation. Sandstone powder was selected and prepared, filling the printer’s build platform due to its cost-effectiveness compared to real stone.
  • Step 4: Printing Process. The printing commenced, with a binder being jetted onto successive layers of sandstone powder, building the gravestone’s form.
  • Step 5: Curing. The printed gravestone was left to cure, solidifying the binder and powder mixture.
  • Step 6: Depowdering. Excess powder was removed, revealing the gravestone’s basic shape.
  • Step 7: Infiltration. A cyanoacrylate adhesive was applied, reinforcing the structure and initiating the stone-like appearance.
  • Step 8: Detailing. Binder Jet printing was utilized to add delicate patterns and fine details.
  • Step 9: Painting. The gravestone was painted to achieve a realistic stone-like finish, enhancing the luxurious look.
