Q.01 What is the maximum size piece that can be produced using laser prototyping?
A.01 Single pieces up to X/Y/Z/ 610 x 610 x 500mm can be produced. It is possible to produce larger sized objects by assembling smaller sections. Please contact us with your requirements.
Q.02 What is the minimum pitch supported by laser prototyping?
A.02 The minimum pitch is 0.05 mm. It is generally not possible to represent features smaller than 0.2 mm.
Q.03 What material is used in laser prototyping?
A.03 An epoxy based UV curing resin is used. A variety of ABS type resins are also available.
Q.04 What types of materials can be used in casting?
A.04 Available resins include polyurethane based ABS-like, PP-like, PC-like materials for vacuum casting, as well as elastomers and transparent materials.
Q.05 What is the maximum cast size?
A.05 Parts can be produced up to X/Y/Z 500x500x200mm. (actual model size) * Please contact us with your requirements for larger sizes.
Q.06 What is the minimum cast size?
A.06 The minimum size varies depending on the features. We will respond after verifying your 3D data.
Q.07 Approximately how long does it take to produce a model?
A.07 Although actual lead time may vary depending on features, advance delivery is usually possible within one week.
Q.08 Do you have a price list?
A.08 Because here is no "standard" prototype model, quotations are provided on a case by case basis. Please contact us with your specific requirements.
Q.09 How durable are cast parts?
A.09 Some resins will yellow with age. Please contact us for more specific information.
Q.10 How durable are silicone molds?
A.10 Durability depends on part features, but generally 15-20 models can be cast from a single silicone mold.
Q.11 Can cast parts be painted?
A.11 Yes. Please notify us of your paint requirements.
Q.12 Is it possible to cast any shape?
A.12 Before beginning production, we will meet with customers to discuss any fine features that may not be able to be reproduced by laser prototyping.
Q.13 What data format is needed for 3D data preparation?
A.13 It is possible to create 3D data from technical drawings provided in the DXF or DWG formats. It is also possible to produce data from line drawings or rough sketches.
Q.14 Is it possible to create data even if no drawings are available?
A.14 A 3D non-contact digitizer (VIVI910) can be used to produce data from Styrofoam or clay handmade models.
