3D Printing

At the heart of rapid fabrication is 3d printing.  A computer model is assembled in a 3 dimensional workspace.  The model is then exported as an *.STL.  STL's are files comprised only of triangles, this is called steriolithography, or "Special Triangle Language."  The 3 dimensional object is then "sliced" cross ways every fraction of a millimeterby a software called a "Slicer."  The more "slices" per mm, the higher the definition the print can be.  Each slice is a 2 dimensional representation of the cross section of the part at that elevation. These cross sections are then converted to G-code.  G-code or "machine code" tells a motor driver how to "step" the motors of each axis to draw any particular shape.  The G-code is sent to the printer, along with some custom code specific to the printer.  Now the printer interprets the G-code and if the stars align, a physical object will begin to appear on the bed.  Talented craftsmen who understand the limitations and abilities of a 3d printer can take your designs to the max.  A component designed to be 3d printed will be 1,000 times easier to print than a component designed by an unfamiliar party.  Look below,  a competent person designed and printed each object you see here.  Reach out  and let me help you get your part featured below.
