What is 3D Printing?

Shortly after becoming involved in the 3D printing industry it didn’t take too many perplexed looks after telling people that we provide 3D Printers to realize that most people have no idea what 3D printing is and if it’s actually real or just some urban legend.

Is 3D Printing Real?

So, to remedy this I started carrying a small sample 3D Printed chain with me to help people grasp the reality of how 3D Printing worked and that it was real, along with some quick video links to further understand how it worked if they were more inquisitive.  After handing over this sample part, I would begin my spiel by explaining that our Objet 3D Printers worked much in the same way as the printer that everyone is familiar with in their home or office.

  1. You first need a file to send to the printer
  2. Both printers have an “ink cartridge”
  3. Both have a print head that prints “ink” exactly where it’s instructed

However, after printing one layer of this “ink” rather than a piece of paper that spits out as your final product, the tray that our “ink” is printed on lowers slightly and another layer of “ink” is printed on top of that, over and over until the process was done and at the end you have a physical 3D object that you can hold in your hand.

Now obviously it’s a little more complicated than that, such as how the “ink” becomes solidified instead of just a pool of liquid sitting on a tray, or what the “ink” really is made of which isn’t your run of a mill toner from an office supply store, but all in all that’s the basics of how Objet’s 3D Printing technology works.

Within hours, not days you can have an idea come to life, design it, print it, test the fit, form, & function of the design. Even get feedback from focus groups on the new products and how they’ll be received by the market, before a company ever produces the final production product.

Got it? Good. Now go forth and spread the gospel of 3D Printing and the world of possibilities with it. It’s not a myth, urban legend, or joke, it’s real and being used every day by companies to create new product designs and many products that you’re already using.

If this still didn’t make any since and you’re one of those conspiracy theory guys who thinks the landing on the moon was filmed in a Hollywood studio, well here’s a video Objet created to explain it in 37 seconds.

What Could YOU Do With Over 100 3D Printing Materials??

A NEW RECORD IN 3D PRINTING! THE 100 MATERIAL RANGE BARRIER HAS BEEN BROKEN BY OBJET!

3D Printed Classic Cars in Multiple Materials

Objet, the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing has announced 39 new ‘Digital Materials’ available with its Objet Connex range of multi-material 3D printing systems. This development places Objet customers at the forefront of additive manufacturing in terms of range of possible printing materials to choose from.

Customers can now select from 107 materials ranging from rigid to rubber-like substances in terms of texture, standard to ABS-grade engineering plastic in terms of toughness, as well as from transparent to opaque, in terms of clarity and shades.

                                   For more details on Objet Materials, click here.

90 of the 107 materials made available by Objet are ‘Digital Materials’, derived by the composite mixing of primary Objet materials. This enables designers, engineers and manufacturers to simulate very precise material properties to closely resemble their intended end-product with the greatest level of realism.

The use of the Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer allows users to also combine up to 14 of these materials; such as rigid and flexible, or opaque and transparent materials, at the same time in a single consistent model.
