OUR CLIENTS

CUSTOMER SPEAK

Great team and excellent work. The 3d printer is working smoothly.

Priyanka K

We are a medical company and we have high standard for 3d printing quality. Flashforge printers met our standard well. The post sale service is also excellent.

How does 3D printing work?

Although there are several things to keep in mind while 3D printing, the steps it takes to create a 3D print are pretty easy. Basically, this is the process for 3D printing:

  1. Download or design a 3D model
  2. Convert the 3D model to a 3D print file with the software Cura
  3. Start the 3D print on the 3D printer
What are the different types of 3D printing?
The different types of 3D printing technologies are
  • Fused deposition modeling (FDM)
  • Stereolithography (SLA)
  • Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
  • Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)
  • Color Jet Printing (CJP)
  • Poly Jet Printing (PJP)
  • Multi Jet Printing (MJP)
  • Multi Jet Fusion (MJF)
What file types are used for 3D printing?

OBJ: OBJ is an open file format that represents 3D geometry. It is a common file used in 3D printing because many design software exports to OBJ and most printers accept OBJ as a printable file. STL: STL files are a standard file type that interfaces between Computer Aided Design (CAD) software and 3D printers.

What is the process of 3D printing?

3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created.

Why 3D printing is important?

3D printing is one of the most important technological advancement in additive manufacturing which has been implemented and recognized as a part of modern industry as it has many advantages over conventional approach of which one of the most important factor which is time.

Why 3D printing is the future?

3D printing, or additive manufacturing, has the potential to democratize the production of goods, from food to medical supplies, to great coral reefs. In the future, 3D printing machines could make their way into homes, businesses, disaster sites, and even outer space.

Does room temperature affect 3D printing?

Temperature range is very important when it comes to 3D printing. When printing with ABS, you need to keep the entire build area hot enough to prevent warping. But, as it turns out, PLA does not like printing in cold garages.

Whats stronger PLA or ABS?

PLA is easier and convenient to use and it is deemed safer than its counterpart. However, ABS is stronger and more flexible. You can print more things with ABS, but it is not as easy to handle.

What is the best material for 3D printing?

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is another commonly used 3D printer material. Best used for making durable parts that need to with stand higher temperatures. In comparison to PLA filament, ABS plastic is less "brittle" and more "ductile." It can also be post-processed with acetone to provide a glossy finish.
