Material-Details: Komposit Datasheet

A composite 3D printing consists of a gypsum material which after printing with an infiltrate (epoxy resin) is filled.
Through this second step of processing, special design guidelines apply to composite parts.
As a rule of thumb, man can say :
Would your component from wet sand be produced?
Because in front of the Infiltrate, the component is very unstable.
The difference to full Collor parts is the infiltrate.
Through use of epoxy resin, the component is stable and also mechanically editable.


Advantages & disadvantages

Advantages

  • More stable than Full-Color
  • High attention to detail
  • Free-distortion
  • Complicated shapes possible
  • Support free manufacturing

Disadvantages

  • Only uniform feasible
  • Susceptible to static error

Price calculation

  • 1 € / cm³ used material.
  • It's just the Material calculated that is actually consumed in the component.

Typical usage

Full-3D prints are very often used for visualizations.
This procedure can provide its customers with a preview of the finished product..
Mostly like, it is used in architecture and interior design.


Technology

Composite parts are produced in the so-called Z-print or new Colorjet process.



The procedure:

The model is broken down into layers 0,1-0,2 mm.
Now a layer from gypsum powder equal to coat(layer) is applied on the printing bed.
A print head which is filled with binders, injects it now there where the part is to be created.
This process is repeated until the printer completely printed the component located at the pressure bed and filled with powder.
The loose powder is used as a support structure for overhanging sections.
After printing, the component is carefully removed from the printing bed and cleaned.
At this point in the process, the supply is still very fragile.
After excess powder is removed, the component is covered with epoxy resin.
This penetrates into the supply and then hardens. The result is a stable model at the end.

Grinding and sandblasting (Polishing)


Polished models in Fullcollor have no high-gloss surface. They have a slightly rough but very smooth surface.
All parts are sanded by hand and then sandblasted. For this reason, it may be that your part is subsequently rejected if it is not to edit by hand..

What is to be observed on polished models:

  • Models can be polished until a size of at least 10 x 10 x 10 mm.
  • Only accessible by hand areas are polished.
  • Post processing will take on all surfaces around 0.2 mm materail. Plan something extra wall thickness.
  • Small details can disappear during this process.
  • The polishing service requires 2 extra Working days to the indicated delivery time..
  • Price: Polishing costs 30% of the part price as extra charge..

Painted models (Klarlack)

Natürlich lassen sich 3D Modelle aus Komposit auch lackieren.
Hierbei wird allerdings nur ein Klarlack verwendet um das Bauteil glatter zu machen.

  • need a minimum dimension of 10 x 10 x 10 mm
  • Price: 30% of the price of the part.
  • In Painting 2 Working extra days must be included.

Painted models

Painted 3D printing

 

Of course, you can also paint models from 3D composite.
Here, the quality and RAL color can be selected. The basic version of the painting is a simple "spray paint"..
This means that is your part lightly sanded and then painted. Construction stages and the similar are still easily recognizable..
The highest quality is the quality in premium (car paint). This "Polishing" must be booked with. This "Polishing" must be booked with.
Your part is sanded, polished, filled, wet sanded and painted.

  • need a minimum dimension of 10 x 10 x 10 mm
  • Price: 30% of the part price for base coating. For additional polishing service premium (+ 30%).
  • In Painting 2 Working extra days must be included.
