We have several types of machines in our workshop:
- FORMIGA M290
- FORMIGA P110
- HP 4200
- FDM, CJP, PJP, MJP, MJF, SLS, DMLS 3D Printers and many more...We are one stop shop for all your 3D Printing needs, please check www.think3d.in for more info.
The action or process of making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model, typically by laying down many thin layers of a material in succession.
Yes, 3D printing is already being introduced to students at an early age.
3D printing enables the physical manifestation of someone’s thoughts and ideas. The hands-on experience makes a technical subject fun and attractive, even for people who aren’t especially interested (yet) in design, architecture, computer science or engineering and many other fields of study.
There are quite a few 3D printing file formats. Here are the most common ones.
- STL: This is the most popular 3D model format, all slicing tools support it.
- OBJ: Also important – and also supported by all major slicing tools – is the OBJ file format. In contrast to STL, OBJ is able to store colour and texture profiles; we guess it will become more popular when multicolour printing takes off.
- PLY: PLY, the Polygon file format, was originally used for storing 3D scanned objects.
- 3MF: 3MF is a new file format developed by Microsoft, Autodesk, HP and Shape ways. It is not clear if this will be widely adopted – we’ll have to wait and see.
The major difference between 3D printing and CNC milling is the starting point: With 3D printing, the manufacturing process starts from nothing, objects are built by adding material layer by layer. In CNC milling, the process starts with a block of material and is finished by removing material until the desired shape has been formed.
