FAQs

3D printing is a digital manufacturing technique in which materials are stacked layer by layer by computer-controlled printers to construct three-dimensional objects, typically using materials such as plastics, metals, ceramics, and biomaterials. 

The charging method of printing is generally calculated by the gram, and the price of different 3D printing materials is different, which is related to factors such as precision. 

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Pretium accumsan risus orci in tellus velit rhoncus turpis. Massa varius venenatis felis in non non fusce.

Metal 3D printing is a revolutionary technology characterized by its suitability for creating fully functional prototypes and end-use parts that may not be possible to produce using traditional manufacturing methods.

Painting 3D prints is the best option to make your design look more colorful and attractive. You can add details and colors to make it more personalized with a spin-off. 

After purchasing a 3D printer, you must start thinking about which filament to buy, and most beginner’s guides recommend PLA or ABS. They are interchangeable, but the truth is that there are significant differences between the two. 

SLS 3D printing technology can be used without a support structure and with a variety of materials that can yield high-temperature soul and good mechanical properties.
