About Project

It's a prototype of a moveable conveyor belt. It has universal wheels that could be fixed, and the height could be adjusted with the help of the sliding rails and joints. There is a dustpan-like structure that could move along the belt and hold the cargo. However, due to his tight budget, we made the model a fixed display model.

Solution

  • Step 1: The client builds the model in CAD, and exports the STL files for printing. Our engineers help them examine the model, simply split the model and print it with SLA technology.
  • Step 2: We arrange the parts in software and add necessary supports. Then 3D print them with SLA Generic Resin in one piece. 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.
  • Step 4: Paint the parts with airbrushes and wool brushes. Glue the parts together into one piece.
