What’s 3D Printing Process?

Additive manufacturing, which is widely recognized as 3D Printing, is a method that produces three-dimensional objects from a digital file. It involves building an object layer by layer utilizing different materials, such as plastics, metals, and ceramics. To commence the procedure, one must develop a 3D model using specialized software or a 3D scanner to scan an existing object. The software then slices the model into thousands of layers, and the 3D printer follows the commands to print the object layer by layer.

There are a number of types of 3D printing technologies, each using different materials and methods. The most common method is fused deposition modeling (FDM), which involves melting and extruding thermoplastic filaments to create the object. Another popular method is stereolithography (SLA), which uses a laser to turn a liquid resin into a solid.

3D Printing provides several benefits over traditional manufacturing methods, including faster production, cost-effectiveness, and the ability to create complex geometries and custom designs. Despite its numerous benefits, 3D Printing still needs improvement, such as limited material choices, slow printing speed, and quality control issues. However, with ongoing research and development, 3D Printing is expected to revolutionize the way we design, create, and manufacture objects in the future.

3D Printing Process Categories

3D printing technology can be divided into different categories based on the material and light source. Some types involve metal powders, while some use resins. The following are some categories of 3D printing we have mastered and effectively use to manufacture high-quality parts for our customers.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D Printing​​ - https://jiahuicustom.com/

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D Printing

SLS is a 3D printing technology that uses high-power lasers to fuse powdered materials. The laser’s energy melts and fuses the powdered material to create complex three-dimensional parts, layer by layer. Primarily, granular thermoplastic polymers are preferred for SLS 3D printing. However, some powdered metals and ceramics can also be used. Overall, this process is ideal for producing functional prototypes, intricate designs, and end-use components in the automotive, medical, consumer durables, and robotics industries.

Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) 3D Printing​ - https://jiahuicustom.com/

Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) 3D Printing

MJF 3D printing is named so due to the presence of multiple inkjet heads. These inkjet heads deposit fusing and detailing agents onto the powder material, which fuses into a solid layer. As a result of the MJF 3D printing process, manufacturers get finely detailed intricate parts with the best feature resolution, high tensile strength, and excellent mechanical properties. Most industries use this process to manufacture end-use components and functional prototypes.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D Printing​ - https://jiahuicustom.com/

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D Printing

The FDM 3D printing process works on the extrusion and deposition principle. This process is characterized by the deposition of molten filament material into several layers until a complete three-dimensional part is produced. Typically, FDM’s layer height ranges from 50 to 400 microns. The shorter the layer, the smoother and more accurate the parts are produced. However, printing taller layers makes the part-making process swifter. FDM is primarily known for its versatility, simplicity, and cost-effectiveness.

Stereolithography (SLA) 3D Printing​​​ - https://jiahuicustom.com/

Stereolithography (SLA) 3D Printing

SLA is the most popular vat polymerization technology. During this process, a light source turns a liquid photosensitive resin into a solid three-dimensional plastic part. With this technology, manufacturers can obtain tolerances less than 0.05 mm. It also offers fine details and smooth surface finishes of end products. The winning combination of precision and speed makes this process ideal for creating high-quality functional prototypes.

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) 3D Printing - https://jiahuicustom.com/

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) 3D Printing

DMLS is a widely used 3D printing technique to manufacture high-precision complex metal components from 3D CAD software. This process involves high-powered lasers to melt metal powder, which later fuse layer by layer and turn into a solid 3D object. DMLS is considered a highly precise process for end-use production and prototyping. It also offers reduced lead time and limited waste material as it’s an additive manufacturing process.

Digital Light (DLP) 3D Printing - https://jiahuicustom.com/

Digital Light (DLP) 3D Printing

DLP 3D printing is quite similar to the SLA 3D printing process as both use a light source to cure the photosensitive resin. The difference lies in the type of light being used. In DLP, a digital light projection screen creates a three-dimensional part layer by layer. This 3D printing process is comparatively faster as the light exposes an entire layer in a single step. In addition, DLP results in smooth surfaces and offers high accuracy and precision.
