Example text

For thousands of years, sand casting has been a common process used to manufacture items in metals including iron, bronze, brass, steel, aluminium and gold. Such patterns are often made out of a material like wood that is relatively easy for craftspeople to shape. Finally, once the metal has cooled and solidified, the sand mold is broken away to reveal the final object. Once printing is complete, the loose sand that surrounds the object is removed, and the resultant mold is filled with metal in a normal sand casting process.

Objects then sometimes require curing in a UV oven. Alternatively, they may be polished-up by ‘vapour honing’ with a fine abrasive spray. 7 inches), and can produce parts that weigh up to 150 kg. 025 mm on its X and Y axes. It does, however, cost the best part of a million dollars. In May 2013, a $3,299 desktop stereolithographic printer called the Form 1 was then launched by Formlabs. 9 inches). 025 mm. 90 inch) print volume. As you can see, at the low-end the market is really hotting-up. It was therefore only used for rapid prototyping, or to fabricate pattern masters from which final production molds were then taken.

Recently a stronger and more durable filament called HTPLA (high temperature PLA) has also become available. Indeed, as I shall discuss in chapter 7, it is theoretically possible that future domestic fabricators will cultivate their own bioplastic filaments. WOOD & METAL COMPOSITE FILAMENTS At the consumer and prosumer end of the material extrusion marketplace, one of the most notable developments over the past few years has been the arrival of specialist composite filaments. These combine a thermoplastic with another material, and increasingly offer amazing new low-cost 3D printing possibilities.
