What is 3d printing?

3d printing (additive manufacturing) is the opposite of CNC Machining and Milling (known as “subtractive manufacturing”). 3d printing is a process to rapid prototype a 3 dimensional solid object from a digital file. 3d models/objects are created by depositing materials layer by layer that eventually forms a pre-designed shape.

Why choose 3d printing for product development & prototyping?

The traditional manufacturing method of conventionally machining prototypes tends to be slow where more materials are generally used, especially when it comes to producing complex (functional) shapes.

3d printing enables designers and engineers to create prototypes faster and cheaper before reaching the stage of massive production. Hence, risks can be greatly reduced.

The current trend in 3d printing industry is that there is an increasing numbers of companies start to utilise 3d printing to make their final products because the advanced 3d printers can now work with a wider range of materials.

Should my company (I) do 3d Printing in-house (DIY) or Outsource to a 3d printing service company?

With 3d printing, desired objects can be easily made which requires minimum assembly and customisation of a part is a lot easier than before . However, it can't be achieved without 3d printers.

For 3d printing DIYers, one thing have to keep in mind is the huge cost of the 3d printers as well as the time spent on researching and buy the right one. 

Another reason to get a local 3d printing service provider is to avoid costly 3d printing mistakes, just leave the hard work and technical stuff to the professionals, resting assured that the products/samples can be 3d printed accurately in shape and using the right materials and proper technology

Questions to ask before getting a 3d printing service supplier in Sydney NSW

Before outsourcing your 3d printing service to a local vendor in Australia, it is very crucial to understand 3d printing thoroughly and understand what exactly you have been looking for. Below are a few questions that can help.

1. What are the 3d printed products/parts for?

Different materials should be used to 3d print different components which are used for different purposes. For example, sometime meta 3d printing is not the right choice and plastic 3d printing is better (see story in testimonial below)

2. What will be the size for the final printed product?

Different 3d printing service providers 3d printers cater for different sizes of parts, so do make sure they are capable of doing the job well.

3. What colour is preferred for the 3d printing job?

When it comes to industrial 3d printing, yellow and read are the popular colors as they stand for safety which minimise risk at workplace, but the vendor should be able to do the printing using a variety of colours.

4. What level of accuracy and quality are required?

Usually different 3d printing suppliers can produce custom 3d printed parts for you but with different accuracy and quality. Always look for the one that can exceed your expectation.

5. What lead time is needed to get the parts 3d printed?

When it comes to industrial 3d printing, yellow and read are the popular colors as they stand for safety which minimise risk at workplace.

6. How much/What is the cost for outsourcing the 3d printing job inclusive or exclusive of 3d models design?

Everything comes down to cost/price. It is the same for 3d printing. Basically build time, setup and labour time affect the total service fee. For example if a 3d design/drawing is ready for use and printing, the cost is less than with NO part CAD model available or have design errors that needs to be amended.

A couple of C-Mac's 3D Printing Case Studies:

3d printed model of of a large cable winder

(1) It is a memento of a large cable winder, for a retiring worker that used to repair them. Printed size is 300mm X 300mm. 100 hours of printing in each unit.

(2) Customer makes fine hand made chocolate. They want a mould made overseas. Will be very costly, and wants to see what it looks like physically before he buys one. So his supplier sent him a file he can print one with to see what it looks like.

Why Choose C-Mac Industries as your 3d Printing Services Provider?

  • Accurate manufacturing times and material usage are known before commencement which allows C-Mac to accurately estimate the cost your jobs before we start.
  • Due to the large bed size, multiple parts can be created at the same time making multiple product manufacture feasible. Repeatable perfect prints are now possible.
  • With exceptional frame rigidity and precision parts, the machine can print as fine as 0.1 layer height. The higher the accuracy, the longer it takes to 3d print your product.
  • The Dual Headed Extruders nozzles are independently controlled, so you can print with different materials in each nozzle. Print in multi-colours, multi-materials or unlock the full potential of 3d printing with dissoluble supports.
  • The powerful 3d printing software provides job statistics including printing times and temperatures which are displayed during the manufacture of your products so that quality can be monitored and tweaks can be made to the finer settings for further product quality.

What C-Mac's Client says about the 3d Printing Job we have done

"I must say I have been converted to and amazed by this 3D printing. With a small prototype design project the 3D printing enabled fast customised and most importantly a very cost effective solution.

I chose to engage C-Mac originally because of their experience with metal work and ability to provide design solutions; though in the end it was all plastic and exceeded my expectations. The team at C-Mac suggested we use 3D printing and at first I was unsure - plastic, easier, strong...were all my questions.

When I picked up the finished design, it delivered. I would definitely encourage someone for 3D printing for early design testing and the C-Mac team did an excellent job! Thank you!"
