Saving 100 thousand money per year.

How a desktop 3D printer can help a company saving cost? 

In general, if a company is developing product, the normal procedure should be like this. 

1. Design 2. making sample 3. redesign & discussing with sample supplier 4. making second sample 5. decide to mass produce.  

If with 3D printer, the procedure will be 

1. Design 2. making sample by 3D printer 3. redesign 4. making second sample by 3D printer 5. decide to mass produce.  

It looks like the procedure is not different, but the main different steps is making sample. Because ID engineer can print out their design by 3D printer, the material is PLA or ABS filament, start to printer after work, and get 3D product on the next day. It can save time for waiting making mold of sample. It helps company to develop new product faster than competitors. 

Besides, even though the precision is not as high as CNC machining center, but for the cost is much cheaper. If company can save this cost, and share this saving for engineer, who doesn't like it.

Can you see different between below 2 machines?

RD engineer use MASTECH 3D printer to print first sample, after confirm design, redesign, and then use mold to mass produce. It is saving several weeks and more than thousands money cost.

If company owner wants to save this cost and share to you, what would you say? YES!!YES!!YES!!

How to use dual-extruder 3D printer with dissolvable filament

Dual-extruder 3D printer is very popular in the world, and believe everyone knows Dual-extruder 3D printer can print 2 colors. Now we are introducing dissolvable  filament. 

Today, we are printing movable car, Bule PLA filament on right extruder, Dissovlabe filament on the left extruder. About printing setting, absolutely we will printer main part by PLA, support filament by dissolvable filament. After printing, just like below pictures,

At this time, the first step is not acid the support, but using hand or tool to cut off the support filament. 

1 done printing

2 using hands to cut off support filament

2 using hands to cut off support filament

3 after cut off

3 after cut off

After above 3 steps, please prepare a bowl, pour in the lemonene. The height should be higher than your work piece. Put your work piece into the bowl. 

After acid it 5~10mins, please prepare another bowl for catching soft dissolvable filament. Then using a sticker or chop sticker to move out the soft dissolvable filament. This step is for saving Lemonene, so that soft dissolvable filament will not precipitation in the bowl. So the lemonene can keep using. After this step, put car into lemonene again to dissolve remained dissolvable filament.  

After 30 mins after (sometimes several hours), take out of model, using brush with detergent cleaning to clean it. and it is completed.

How to make a model?

Taking about 3D printer, A lot of people thought it can make "toy", of course it also can make model..and it came with business opportunity. 

The famous Facebook blogger: Bonbon 蹦蹦:汪喵?  <-------click it to see it!!

3d MODEL


They are manage their blog for a long time, more than 13 thousands fans follow them. They want to make a cute Mix dog. Finally they draw 3D model after several weeks.

By one chance, they contact Mastech 3D printer, and ask us the help them to print it out. Thus we use slice software to transform program file, and add support on the hollow layer. Besides, we can see how long and how many filament needs to cost. 

slice the file

After that, just save program to SD card, printer by 3D printer.

Cut the support material by tools. And done it.

What can Dual-Extruder 3D printer do for you?

Nowadays, there are 2 extruder or 3 extruder 3D printer in the world. The first idea came in mind is " printer many color" or " printer fast". However, it is not totally true!! Exactly, it can print 2 colors, thus we can print this globe model. 

 

 

 

 

But it is wrong, if you think it can print faster, please see below pictures. 

Mastech globe

When you are using Dual-extruder 3D printer, except main product. It also prints 2 walls, please see red arrow, there are green and blue walls. There are two meanings for these 2 walls, First, when right nozzle finish its part, right-extruder need to go to right side to get down temperature to stop filament go out, and the left-extruder is heating to make it possible to start printing. Second, After right-extruder down temperature, there is some scrap on the right-extruder, so this wall can isolate the scrap out of printing range. see the red circle of the picture. 

Therefore, because these 2 walls, the printing time will be longer.............

Thus, the extruder advantage are 1. can print two colors 2. can printer different materials. 

Like this globe, Blue is PLA filament, Green is ABS filament.

Tawian famous hand tool factory, ChienFu Enterprise was founded in 1979, with 30s years' experience and nearly 100 units of machineries and testing equipment, dedicated into producting high precision metal machine parts. They insisting providing customers high efficiency, high quality, and high satisfaction globally with continuous innovation and invention.

Now they are using Mastech 3D printer to save time and cost for making mould for the prototype of product. They used Mastech 3D printer to print designed hand tool to check the quality and design is suitable and made for human.

AFTER ALL ENGINEERS CONFIRM HAND TOOL DESIGN IS SUITABLE FOR COMPANY AND CUSTOMER'S DEMAND, AND THEN USE MOULD  TO PRODUCE PROTOTYPE AND START MASS PRODUCTION. IT CAN SAVE COST AND TIME IF THE FIRST MOULD IS NOT SAME AS THEY OR CUSTOMER'S DEMAN. IT MAKES COMPANY MORE COMPETITIVE.
