A copy of the car mirror frame

According to the client's order, a copy of the car mirror frame and an additional part were made with the help of 3D technologies.

The customer provided a car mirror frame and one additional part. The parts had to be made in a mirror position. These two components were scanned using the most accurate "Artec Space Spider" scanner, capable of scanning up to 0.05mm in accuracy. Models were printed on a Zortrax M200 printer using Z-Ultrat plastic. This plastic is durable and has excellent properties during post-processing. It is mainly used for printing mechanical and technical parts.

This method of production allowed the customer to quickly and at low cost produce the missing parts of a rare car, which these days are already hard to reach in the market.

3D printing material: Z-Ultrat

3D printing technology: FDM (fused deposition modeling)

Product size (mm): 185 x 53 x 117 (mirror); 50 x 33 x 28 (additional part)

Support for window profiles

The window profile support was printed by the order of the company engaged in window manufacture.

This part is directly used in manufacturing. It maintains the profiles transported on the production line so that they go precisely and straightforwardly. For these reasons, the part had to be extremely durable and resistant. For this purpose, a polyamide base plastic CoPA was chosen for printing. This plastic is particularly durable and resistant to physical and temperature effects. Printing was done by "Mass Portal" 3D printer.

3D printing allowed the customer to quickly and easily get the necessary part, which helped to improve the work of the machine.

3D printing material: CoPA plastic

3D printing technology: FDM (fused deposition modeling)

Product size (mm): 30 x 50 x 192

Game figurines

According to the customer's 3D models, a series of game figurines was printed by our 3D printer.

For 3D printing was used high-quality "Mass Portal" printer, based on FDM (fused deposition modeling) technology. PLA plastic was selected for printing, which is distinguished by its solidity and high quality.

This production method allows the customer to quickly and qualitatively realize the computer 3D models and thus expand the collection of their gaming figures.

3D printing material: PLA

3D printing technology: fused deposition modeling (FDM)

Product size (mm): the biggest 100x60x53; the smallest 32x25x7.

180ºC temperature resistant air flow control tee tube of an antique car

By the client request, air flow control tee tube was 3D modeled and 3D printed of our new 3D printing filament - CoPA.

According to the dimensions provided by the customer, specific diameter air flow tee tube was 3D modeled by our engineers. The main requirement for this tee tube was resistance for high temperature. Unfortunately, we have not had such resistant materials in FDM technology so far, but from now on we are pleased to offer our customers CoPA plastic, which is made of polyamide (nylon), and is therefore extremely durable, resistant to impact and loads, and can withstand even 180 degrees of temperature! For this tee tube, 3D printing was used high-quality "Mass Portal" 3D printer.

This solution made it possible for the customer to quickly and economically produce the part that was no longer available on the market and adapt it to car restoration job.

3D printing material: CoPA plastic;
