What is 3D Printing?

Wintech Rapid can offer SLA (Stereo lithography Apparatus) and SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) service with free finishing. 55-75% cheaper to produce parts compared to CNC machining. If you feel we may be able to help with your project then please feel free to contact us for a free quote.

3D printing is a great choice for quick and low-cost prototyping and can be used for a wide variety of applications. It refers to processes in which material is joined or solidified under computer control to create a three-dimensional object, with material being added together (such as liquid molecules or powder grains being fused together). The printing can take hours to complete depending on the size, and the printed objects are often post-processed to reach the desired finish. There is only possible with 3D printing to efficiently make one-off parts and create highly complex geometries.

Advantages of 3D Printing

3D printing, also known as rapid prototyping, typically produces low quantities of parts without tooling so that fast turnaround and low cost is possible.

3D printing allows engineers, designers, managers and end-users to check designs for usability, appearance, manufacturability, fit, function, etc., prior to committing to conventional manufacturing.
3D printing speeds the design cycle.

At Wintech Rapid, we offer a totally free of charge polishing service. This smooths the outer surface and can produce a near injection mould quality finish.

Why use 3D Printing for Rapid Prototyping? In short: it’s fast and relatively cheap. From idea, to 3D model to holding a prototype in your hands is a matter of days instead of weeks. Iterations are easier and cheaper to make and you don’t need expensive molds or tools.

Welcome to the 3D Printing Industry

The world of 3D printing is at times a tangled web of technologies, materials, and new processes and capabilities and that can make navigating the 3D printing ecosystem difficult.

3D printing doesn’t refer to one kind of manufacturing or technological process and therefore a well-rounded understanding requires an in-depth look into all available 3D printing systems.

While it’s not exactly easy to bundle 30+ years of manufacturing advancements into a succinct article, we’ve taken on the challenge because we want to help you make informed and grounded decisions on how, where and when to implement 3D printing into your own business operations or even daily life.

Manufacturing Parts with 3D Printing

You draft out a rough sketch before moving to 3D CAD, easily plugging in dimensions and executing the design in the 3D software (you’re a CAD modeling pro!). You finalize your design with your project leader, upload your 3D CAD file to Wintech Rapid and select prototyping.
