3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing

ICOMold now offers 3D printing and additive manufacturing through through Fathommfg.com.

What is 3D Printing?

3D printing is a process of manufacturing that constructs 3D models by layering, or printing, materials. The 3D printed object is created through the use of a CAD design file that is programmed into a computer. Materials used in 3D printing include polymers, metals, glass, ceramic, foams, gels and more. Common applications for 3D printed products include production parts, industrial tooling, visualization tools, consumer prototypes and customized products. 3D printing technologies include SLS, SLA, FDM, MJF and PolyJet. For more information, visit our 3D printing service page.

What is Additive Manufacturing?

Additive manufacturing is inclusive of all 3D manufacturing technologies that utilize a computer-aided-design (CAD) to construct an object layer by layer. Additive manufacturing allows a user to improve functionality through rapid testing to work out any product flaws prior to the final prototype. Additive manufacturing is an excellent choice for developing products with intricate details, lightweight construction, and a high level of strength. For more information, visit our additive manufacturing services page.

What are the Main Technologies in 3D Printing?

3D printing additive manufacturing technologies include several different processes. The processes include Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Stereolithography (SLA), Multi Jet Fusion (MJF), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and PolyJet (PJ). Each technology offers its own unique characteristics that can be utilized to create your part to your exact specifications.
