Printing & 3D Printing


What is 3D Printing?

3D Printing, sometimes referred to as ‘additive manufacturing’ is the process by which a solid object is created by the addition of layers of material fed to a point determined by what is effectively XYZ digital robotic software.

The material, which can be a range of plastics or metals, is fed to the deposition point usually in wire or powder form where it is heated and fused to the previously deposited material.

Extremely complex shapes can be produced in this way and since the process is ‘additive’ rather than ‘subtraction’ where material is removed from a larger piece by machining, grinding etc, very little material is wasted. The production of products previously injection moulded or cast can save thousands in tooling costs.

Types of 3D Printing:

- Stereolithography

- SLS - Selective Laser Sintering

- FFF - Fused Filament Fabrication

- PolyJet Technology

- WDM Technology - Wax Deposition Modelling
