About Project

Are you looking for a way to create a Fitting Joint Prototype that is strong, durable, and precise? If so, you might want to consider using SLS 3D printing technology and Formlabs PA12 nylon material.

SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) is a 3D printing technique that uses a laser to fuse together small particles of plastic powder into a solid object. It can produce complex shapes with high dimensional accuracy and low creep. Formlabs PA12 nylon is a versatile thermoplastic that offers a balance between strength and detail. It can be printed with up to 70% recycled powder, making it economical and environmentally friendly.

At FacFox, we offer high-quality SLS 3D printing services with Formlabs PA12 nylon material. We can help you turn your design into a reality with a fast turnaround time and competitive prices. Whether you need a prototype for testing or a small batch for production, we have the solution for you.

Solution

  • Step 1: First, the 3D model would be broken down into layers of 0.1 mm on the computer and sent to the 3D printer.
  • Step 2: Before printing, the tank would be filled with SLS Grey Nylon PA12 powders. On a bed pressure, a 0.1 mm thick layer over the whole width was applied.
  • Step 3: The machine was preheated to above 100°C, and the laser would light the powder and increase the temperature just above the melting point of the powders.
  • Step 4: After a layer was formed, the platform would lower down and produce another layer until the whole model got produced.
  • Step 5: When the printing process ended, excess powders which also served as supports would be removed with brushes and a vacuum cleaner.
