Plastic 3D Printing

3D Incredible also provides a comprehensive solution for Plastic 3D Printing. One of the most conventional technologies ever made using Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) wherein, layer upon layer of plastic is deposited until the final product is in place. It can be branched into 4 distinct types of technologies; SLS 3D Printing Technology, FDM 3D Printing Technology, SLA 3D printing technology, and MJF 3D printing. The applications of Plastic 3D printing entail various activities that level-up the manufacturing and production processes. It is used for Prototyping as it accelerates the digital design creating appearance models & effectively builds functional prototypes. It proliferates Production as manufacturing plastic parts using exceptional additive manufacturing technology is now a reality with productivity, durability, repeatability, and lower cost of operations. Most prominently it aids in Investment Casting as 3D plastic printing expedites the delivery of high-quality metal products and casting patterns with 3D printed wax and SLA casting patterns. It can also be used to produce accurate Jigs and Fixtures using 3D printing technology that advances your manufacturing process in a speedy & cost-effective way.

SLS 3D printing

SLS is the most common additive manufacturing technology for industrial applications. SLS 3D printers use a high-powered laser to fuse small particles of polymer powder The maximum building volume of SLS is 340 mm x 340 mm x 600 mm with a wall thickness of 0.8mm and a wall-size of 0.8-1.0mm. The material used in SLS is Nylon/PA which makes it Strong and flexible.

FDM 3D printing

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is the most widely used form of 3D printing at the consumer level, fueled by the emergence of hobbyist 3D printers. The maximum build volume of FDM is 580x580x580 mm. It has a wall thickness of 1mm with a hole Size 2mm. The material used in it is ABS & PLA yet it is strong and flexible.

SLA 3D printing

The world's first 3D technology, SLA is still one of the most popular 3D technology. SLA has a maximum build volume of 650x650x450mm. The wall thickness is between 0.6 to 0.8mm and Hole size is between 0.8 to 1.0mm. It's the surface finish is better than the rest of the processes as the material used in it is Clear (Rigid), Castable (Blue) (Rigid) and Flexible (Black).

MJF 3D printing

Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) uses a fine-grained PA 12 material. Its maximum build volume is 256x340x360mm with a hole size of 0.8mm and wall-size 0.5 mm. The material used in it is PA12 which makes it strong and flexible.
