3D Printing

3D printing (3DP) is a kind of rapid prototyping technology, also known as additive manufacturing. It is a kind of technology based on digital model files, and it USES adhesive materials such as powder metal or plastic to construct objects by printing layer by layer.

3D printing is usually achieved by using digital technology material printers. It is often used in mold manufacturing, industrial design and other fields to make models, and then gradually used in the direct manufacturing of some products. There are already parts printed with this technology. The technology has applications in jewelry, footwear, industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education, geographic information systems, civil engineering, firearms, and other fields.

Used in the daily life of ordinary printer can print computer design of planar objects, the so-called 3 d printers and working principle of the common printer basic same, just some different print material, ordinary printer to print material is ink and paper, and in the 3 d printer is equipped with metal, pottery and porcelain, plastic, sand and other different “printed materials”, is real raw material, after connect with computer, printer with computer control can be “printed materials”, one layer upon layer overlay, the blueprint of computer has finally become real. In layman’s terms, a 3D printer is a device that can “print” real 3D objects, such as a robot, a toy car, models and even food. The popular name “printer” refers to the technical principle of ordinary printers, because the process of layered processing and inkjet printing is very similar. This printing technology is called 3D stereo printing.

There are many different technologies for 3D printing. They differ in the way that components are created from available materials and built in different layers. common materials for 3D printing include nylon glass fiber, durable nylon material, gypsum material, aluminum material, titanium alloy, stainless steel, silver-plated, gold-plated and rubber materials.

As a OEM supplier, Nice Rapid provide 3D printing technology, as well as cnc machining, Vacuum Casting. usually we will make the products according to the 3D models that provided by our customer. We are able to make both plastic and metal products, such as aluminum, steel, brass etc… And most of plastics are available, such as ABS, PP, PC, PMMA…

Besides, we provide some surface finish, like anodization, plating, sandblasted, painting, silk screen and so on.
