Solution

  • Step 1: Design Phase. The prototype was designed using CAD software, where each part was meticulously crafted to represent the actual structure of the product.
  • Step 2: Preparation. The SLA 3D printer was prepared by ensuring the resin tank was filled with the photopolymer resin. The build platform was calibrated to the correct height above the resin tank.
  • Step 3: Printing Process. The printing process was initiated by exposing the liquid resin to a UV laser. The laser was guided by the printer’s software to cure the resin layer by layer. The build platform was lowered incrementally as each layer solidified.
  • Step 4: Complex Structures. For the intricate parts like the spiral and the gas burner-like structure, supports were generated in the software and printed along with the prototype to maintain structural integrity during the printing process.
  • Step 5: Post-Processing. Once the printing was completed, the prototype was carefully removed from the build platform. The supports were then removed, and the prototype was washed in isopropyl alcohol to clean off any uncured resin.
  • Step 6: Curing. The prototype was placed in a UV curing chamber to ensure that any remaining resin reached its final strength and stability.
  • Step 7: Finishing Touches. The prototype was sanded to smooth out any imperfections and painted to match the desired silver and black color scheme. The clear parts were coated with clear acrylic oil to be transparent.
  • Step 8: Assembly. The various parts of the prototype were assembled to form the complete structure. The clear resin windows were fitted into the slots, and the spiral was positioned centrally to allow for heating.
