About Project

Have you ever dreamt of holding a crystal skull in your hands? With SLA 3D printing and FacFox's meticulous post-processing techniques, that dream can become a reality! Today, we'll delve into the captivating journey of transforming a clear resin human skull model from a vat of liquid to a polished masterpiece.

The initial stage showcases the skull fresh out of the printer, basking in its translucent glory. Here, a network of delicate support structures plays a crucial role. These temporary scaffolds prevent the intricate details of the skull from warping or collapsing during the printing process.

Once the printing magic is complete, the true artistry begins. FacFox's experts meticulously remove the supports, ensuring not a single trace mars the smooth surface of the skull. This delicate process requires precision and skill to safeguard the model's integrity.

But the journey doesn't end there. The skull, though free from its temporary framework, still exhibits visible layer lines, remnants of the printing process. To achieve that crystal-like clarity, our team painstakingly polishes the surface, meticulously buffing away these imperfections.

With each meticulous stroke, the skull undergoes a remarkable metamorphosis. The initially cloudy resin transforms into a crystal-clear marvel, showcasing the intricate details of the human skull with breathtaking precision. Remarkably, despite its newfound clarity, the model remains significantly lighter than a traditional cast replica.

The end result is a breathtaking conversation piece, a testament to the power of SLA 3D printing and FacFox's commitment to exceptional quality. If you're looking for a unique and captivating 3D printed model, look no further than FacFox. We offer exceptional 3D printing services, meticulously crafted to bring your visions to life.

Solution

  • Step 1: Initially, the digital model was carefully examined to ensure its viability for printing. Critical aspects such as wall thickness, escape holes for hollowed parts, and intricate details were scrutinized. Subsequently, a quote was provided based on the model’s complexity, size, and the amount of resin required.
  • Step 2: Once approved, the model was 3D printed using Stereolithography (SLA) technology. SLA Clear Resin was chosen for its transparency and detail resolution. The printing process involved the selective curing of the resin by a laser, layer by layer, to form the hollowed human skull model.
  • Step 3: After printing, the model was subjected to post-curing under UV light. This step was crucial as it enhanced the mechanical properties of the resin, ensuring the final product was robust and clear.
  • Step 4: Following the post-curing, the support structures, which were necessary during the printing process to maintain the model’s shape, were carefully removed. This was done with precision to avoid any damage to the skull model.
  • Step 5: Finally, the hollowed skull model was polished to achieve a smooth and clear finish. The polishing process not only improved the aesthetic appeal but also contributed to the clarity of the resin, making the skull model more lifelike.
