Printing Techniques

3D Printing Technologies

There’s a wide range of industrial and commercial 3D printing technologies that can be used to print your model. However, the technology to be used depends on the material you’d want. Have a look at the following technologies that can be used depending on the requirements.

Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM)

Fused deposition modeling is the most common process of 3D printing. The process begins by melting a plastic filament that moves over a surface layer by layer. This layer transforms into a solid object. When all of the layers are completed, the object is finished.

Stereolithography (SLA)

In SLA, a series of overlapping beams from a laser are directed on the surface to form a precise solid surface. As the light is absorbed by the resin, it is transferred into the final product.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

Laser sintering uses a laser to heat powdered materials such as nylon. The laser passes over the powder particles and they stick together to form a solid part. Each layer is then coated with the blade and the whole process is repeated again.
