Discover the latest news, tips and tricks about 3D printing. We continually analyze and test new products and materials, in order to ensure the traceability and quality of our entire catalog, and we share our conclusions and experience.
To have maximum reliability at the time of printing it is vital to have the maximum number of possible controlled variables, and humidity is one of them to ensure maximum robustness in the printing process.
The theory of color is a group of basic rules in the mixture of colors to achieve the desired effect by combining pigments. By combining 4 basic pigments you can achieve all the colors of the chromatic range. This, which a priori seems very simple, is an art in the press and, led to 3D printing, is still more complex.
The ASA is an amorphous thermoplastic terpolymer material similar to ABS created in 1970 by the manufacturer BASF under the trade name Luran S. The difference between these two materials at the structural level is that the ASA uses an acrylic elastomer and the ABS an elastomer of butadiene.
The world of 3D printing is constantly advancing and there are more and more materials on the market. Thanks to the uninterrupted development of this technology has born a new category of materials and 3D printers, advanced materials and advanced industrial 3D printers.
3D printing isn't a recent technology as it seems, if not existing for many years, since 1986 when Chuck Hull, founder of 3D Systems, records the first 3D printer. This was a 3D SLA printer (StereoLithoGraphy), which uses a resin that solidifies by photopolymerization when a laser beam hits it.
