3D printing has developed since the end of the 1990s, and has really been honed in the last two years. The procedure involves taking thin two-dimensional cross-sections of a 3D object. These cross-sections are then produced by agglomerating powder using a bonding agent.
As they are stacked on top of each other, the cross-sections form a three-dimensional object. The objects obtained are made from a polymer resembling plaster. They need to be treated in order to obtain the desired physical properties.
After printing, it is possible to increase the object’s volume by 30% using specific processes. These processes, which Print Value is an expert in, allow your objects to be given the desired physical and mechanical properties. For instance, the object can be hardened to make it unbreakable, give it a lacquered or metallic appearance, or make it able to withstand temperatures of more than 1200 degrees.
A wide range of post processing opens up possibilities for numerous applications.
