SG3D Project Examples

3D Printing SG3D 1.jpg

ART EXHIBIT VASE

Standing over 1200mm tall, this complex faceted design took just

17 hours to print on our MASSIVit 1800. Each layer of the vase is

rotated 30° in opposition to the preceding one, building up a complex

shape that would be extremely difficult to make using conventional

manufacturing techniques. The vase was primed, filled, sanded and

sprayed with a filler resin

AWARDS TROPHIES

We printed a series of awards for Diageo’s World Class Bartender

of the Year 2017. Each award comprised four 3D printed parts, each

separately finished and painted before being bonded together with

adhesive. Our HP Multi Jet Fusion 4200 came into its own for this

project, providing fine detail in quick time for this prestigious event. 3D Printing SG3D 3.jpg

GIANT TROPHY PROP

This 4m high theatre prop is a trophy on one side but rotates to

reveal cabinet style shelves on the other. Made for Birmingham Rep’s

production of ‘Nativity’, the prop was printed in five different sections on

our MASSIVit 1800. It includes integral lettering as well as pick up points

to allow for easy assembly on stage. Our Finishing Department applied

a burnished gold paint finish.

BOWLING PIN TEST PIECE

Our MASSIVit 1800 took just thirty minutes to print two bowling pins

simultaneously. The pins were sanded, sprayed with filler primer,

sanded again and painted in a metallic automotive paint. They

demonstrate the high-quality paint finish that can be achieved across

the entire range of 3D prints from all of our four printers.

JEWELLERY REPLICAS

These highly detailed and intricate jewellery replicas were printed then

plated with nickel and silver. The original items were scanned using our

Steinbichler Comet L3D before being printed on our Fortus 250mc,

which handles fine detail exceptionally well. We may major in printing

big, but can do small and intricate equally well, even providing parts

with real metal finishes such as nickel, chromium, silver and pure gold.
