Manufacturer of interior details sent a few different designs to print to have a better view and feel for further manufacturing decisions.
Wall clock designs were printed on a large-scale 3D printer which is based on FDM technology. PolyMax PLA material was chosen specifically for its ease to print and very similar properties to ABS plastic. Handles were printed on "Zortrax M200" machines with HIPS plastic because of its impact resistance and easy to post-process.
Whole printing project took only 2 working days with 4 different wall clock designs and more than 20 knobs. The duration of printing shows very good opportunities with additive manufacturing for quick pre-manufacturing processes to determinate compatibility and design choices.
3D printing material: PolyMax PLA and HIPS
3D printing technology: Fused Deposition Modeling
Product size (mm): clocks up to 260 x 260 x 30 / knobs up to 30 x 30 x 60
