3D-printing actually is an additive layer manufacturing process. This means, an object is created by adding a material layer by layer. In contrast to this, an object can be milled by reducing material from a given block of material.
3D printing instead allows to produce highly complex forms including hollow and undercut elements in just one single piece!
This innovative manufacturing process thus even allows artists and graphic designers to make their digital model tangible without even being equipped with the respective technical know how of the manufacturing technology.
For companies, 3D printing allows to speed up the prototyping process within the product develop phase in order to test and detect mistakes at an early stage of the product development process.
RICHTIG DRUCK is applying two major technologies depending on the product and the field of application. The coloured 3D printing and the laser-sinter technology (SLS).
