3D PRINTING SERVICES USING PLASTIC OR SAND

"3D Creative" is a leading 3D service provider in the Baltic States, whose business includes 3D scanning, modeling and printing.

In order to remain a leading company in the modern and fast-paced 3D service sector, we offer our customers a wide range of  different options for 3D printing methods.

3D printing

VX200Our company provides 3D printing services using various plastics (PMMA, PA, Liquid Resin, ABS, PLA, PC, PET, HIPS, ULTRAT, NYLON, FLEX, WoodFill, BronzeFill, etc.) and quartz sand materials. We work with professional VoxelJet, EOS, Mass Portal, Zortrax, Formlabs 3D printers, thus providing exceptional 3D printing services.

 

  • Precise quality and accuracy.
    Printing layer thickness: sand - 200 µm,
    plastic -  from 25 µm.
  • Unique and the only ones on the market solid product sizes
    Sand - 4000 x 2000 x 1000 mm
    Plastic - 1060 x 600 x 500 mm
  • Small volumes 3D printing
    We can simultaneously print several different products or several units of the same products, so we can offer shorter deadlines.

 

Computer 3D CAD file - that's all we need to start to work. If you do not have one, we can help to create it. Work performance term ranges from 1 up to 5 working days and depends on the selected material, product’s size, quantity and complexity. More about the order process read in section 3D SERVICE ORDERS.

Application of our 3D printing services

3D sand and plastic printing is used in a wide variety of situations in a wide range of areas - both in business: automotive industry, aviation, dentistry, reverse engineering, metal molds, both in art: architects, designers, sculptors, restorers, and for the needs of private clients. 3D printing technology became accessible to everyone and applied every day for unique and exclusive ideas:

3D printing process, materials used and their technical specification

Binder Jetting technology

We print products of quartz sand and PMMA (Polymethyl Methacrylate) plastic powder. During the printing process, the main materials are bonded with special glue. The whole process consists of the following steps:

3D spausdinimo procesas

  1. 3D CAD file loading into the printer and initiation of print process
  2. Application of thin (80 - 200 μm) sand or plastic layer on the printing platform
  3. Selective addition of binder
  4. Lowering of the building platform
  5. Steps 2-4 repeated until the part is fully formed
  6. Removal of unbound plastic powder
  7. Finished element

SLS  technology

By using SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) method we print products made of PA (polyamide) plastic powder. Laser is using for fusion of plastic powders.

Benefits Bright corners and edges; high precision and detail; strength

SLA  technology

SLA (Stereolithography) method, products are printed of liquid resin. During 3D printing process model is created layer-by-layer by using the photopolymerization process: light of the special parameters forces molecular chains to merge, thus creating polymers.
