About Project

The student has designed this handheld ironing machine as her lesson project, it aims to have several functions like sterilization, ironing and acarus killing. Its tail is bending, convenient for hanging, and the tail can hold a large battery. We made the prototype with SLA technology and applied a glossy finishing.


  • Step 1: The client builds the model in CAD, and exports the STL files for printing. Our engineer would help her examine the model and split it into parts for the convenience of printing and painting.
  • Step 2: We arrange the parts in software and add necessary supports. Then 3D print them with SLA Generic Resin. 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. Try to assemble all the parts.
  • Step 4: Spray with putties and paint the parts with airbrushes, screenprint the icons, then coat with clear acrylic oil. The coating layer should be thin and even so the assembly accuracy won’t be affected.
