About Project

If you are looking for a realistic and durable propeller miniature for your model aircraft, boat, or car, you might want to consider MJF 3D printing with polypropylene (PP) material. MJF stands for Multi Jet Fusion, a 3D printing technology developed by HP that uses a fine powder and a binding agent to create solid parts layer by layer. PP is one of the most widely used thermoplastics in the world, known for its excellent chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, and high flexibility.

One of the advantages of MJF 3D printing with PP is that it can produce complex geometries and thin features with high accuracy and resolution. The parts are also fully dense and nearly isotropic, meaning they have similar mechanical properties in all directions. Moreover, MJF 3D printing with PP can achieve a uniform matte black surface finish by heating the part in a dye solution. This gives the propeller miniature a sleek and professional look that matches the real thing.

To get started with MJF 3D printing with PP, you will need a 3D model of your propeller miniature. You can design it yourself using CAD software, or download it from an online platform. Once you have your 3D model ready, you can upload it to FacFox, an online 3D printing service that offers MJF 3D printing with PP among other manufacturing options. FacFox will analyze your model and give you an instant quote and printability check. You can also choose from different materials, finishes, and colors for your propeller miniature.

Solution

  • Step 1: A 3D model of the propeller miniature was uploaded to FacFox’s website and analyzed for printability and cost.
  • Step 2: The 3D model was sliced into thin layers and sent to an MJF 3D printer that used PP powder as the raw material.
  • Step 3: The MJF 3D printer spread a thin layer of PP powder on a build platform and applied a binding agent on the areas that corresponded to the cross-section of the propeller miniature.
  • Step 4: The build platform was lowered and a heating element fused the bound powder into a solid part.
  • Step 5: The process was repeated until the propeller miniature was completed.
  • Step 6: The propeller miniature was removed from the powder bed and cleaned of any excess powder.
  • Step 7: The propeller miniature was soaked in a dye solution that gave it a uniform matte black surface finish.
  • Step 8: The propeller miniature was inspected for quality and shipped to the customer.
