Rapid 3D Printing
Rapid 3D Printing Solutions
Rapid 3D printing is the prototyping process of taking 3D data and turning that data into a physical model in a very short time frame. If you’re looking for 3D printing services, our group of project managers can guide you through the many rapid 3D printing processes to achieve exactly what you are looking for.
Schmit Prototypes 3D printing capabilities include:
- Stereolithography (SLA) 3D Printing: This uses a high-powered laser that forms a hard resin inside a container that will create the 3D shape. This process converts photosensitive liquid into a 3D shape in a layer-by-layer fashion.
- FDM 3D Printing: Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) deposits single layers on top of one another until the desired 3D shape is created.
- SLS 3D Printing: Selective laser sintering (SLS) is an additive manufacturing process that uses a laser to activate sintered material to form a solid 3D object.
- Polyjet 3D Printing: This is one of the most accurate types of 3D printing that creates smooth 3D parts by using liquid photopolymer.
Each 3D printer has their specific advantages; please consult with one of our project managers to decide which 3D printing technology best fits your specific needs.
3D Printing Materials
SLA models can be built up to: 25.6″ x 29.5″ x 21.65″ (650mm x 750mm x 550mm). Larger models of virtually any size, can be sectioned and assembled upon completion.
FDM models can be built up to: 36″ x 24″ x 36″ (914mm x 610mm x 914mm). Larger models of virtually any size, can be sectioned and assembled upon completion.
SLS models can be built up to: 15″ x 13″ x 18″ (550mm x 550mm x 460mm). Larger models of virtually any size, can be sectioned and assembled upon completion.
Polyjet models can be built up to: 19.7″ x 15.7″ x 7.9″ (500mm x 400mm x 200mm).
