Plasto 3D Prints

plasto 3d prints.

Human mind thinks and conceives in 3D. And every designer wants to use the designs as exact part/prototype almost as soon as the design is ready. iKix Plasto 3D Prints can help you do just that!

Plasto 3D Prints offer an array of benefits. You can

  • Do immediate design validation and make changes – no need to wait for weeks till the mould maker responds.
  • Quickly check form and fit, especially in component and sub component designs.
  • Interact better with team members, vendors and suppliers for easier communication.
  • Use them in customer meetings and sales presentations, dealer trainings etc as a substitute for the original part.

Plasto Prints are economical and help you save time, cost, wastage and trouble. Plasto 3D Prints is the easiest way to print a part directly from a CAD file, without investing in your own printer. All you need to do is send the CAD file to us and we will deliver the 3D part to you.

Material and color options

The Basic Materials used for printing are ABS Plastic, biodegradable PLA Plastic, brick structure laybrick and water soluble PVA.

Water PVA dissolves in hot water and so it is the perfect support material for all PLA prints

ABS has higher strength boundary that PLA, making it easy to perform a surface treatment with sandpaper, acetone or even drill holes in the prints. ABS is available in a wide range of colors. It is a plastic that is non-soluble.

Other Filaments

Nylon is a strong material that can withstand much more pressure than other materials. It is a versatile material with low warp. It can also be dyed after printing and there are also techniques available to dye the material before printing.

Laybrick contains brick like fibres which makes the 3D Print look like it is made from sandstone. This is not provided on a filament spool.

Applications

Who can benefit from iKix Plasto 3D Prints

DIE AND MOULD MAKERS

Slash the lead time by 95% through additive manufacturing technology for injection moulding tools. The molds can be printed in hours, at a fraction of the cost using ABS material that are temperature resistant and have greater toughness.

Aerospace and defense parts can be 3D printed through additive manufacturing while improving overall efficiency in meaningful ways, unattainable through traditional methods. There is also the ability to print replacement parts on demand. The parts thus obtained are lightweight.

AUTOMOBILE COMPANIES

Additive Manufacturing breaks down barriers to innovation for automotive manufacturers. By building durable and functional concept models, engineers and designers can work more iteratively, test more thoroughly and move confidently into production. Nylon would be the best option for use in automotive industry.

3D Printing helps transform ideas into tangible objects. It helps customers to unleash their imagination to create things new and unseen. Personal and cultural heritage pieces can be replicated for preservation and education. The unique color capabilities provide major movie animators, 3D software developers, service bureaus and consumers with the ability to produce custom characters and figurines with ease.

MEDICAL DEVICE MAKERS

Additive Manufacturing is dedicated to assisting the pioneering of healthcare solutions to advance treatments and enhance quality of life. Medical device manufacturers can make the prototype of the devices before making the final product. Virtual surgical planning (Medical modeling) can provide surgeons with accurate planning models created from CT/CBCT scans for use in planning some of the most complex surgeries.

Industrial designers, mechanical engineers, packaging designers, can use Additive Manufacturing to understand a product’s aesthetic and functional appeal. Design reviews can be more productive. The 3D Prints can be used to replicate small plastic parts like a small dishwasher part or a missing chess piece.

GADGET AND ELECTRONIC COMPONENT MAKERS

The triple requirements of attractive design, small form factor and high production efficiency make designing of electronic components a real challenge. 3D Prints can be made with walls less than 10 mm thickness which is ideal for small devices densely packed with minute components.

Packaging design is a competitive business and the client should be impressed with the concept before accepting the design. iKix plasto print can make realistic prototypes to help the customer to evaluate the end product. A packaging designer can quickly and easily implement changes to the design and mock-ups can be created in hours, not days, and the client will be able to get the product into the consumer testing phase very quickly.

BOTTLE AND CONTAINER DESIGNERS

Additive Manufacturing helps manufacturers of plastic bottles, jars, tubes, caps and fitments for the food, healthcare, personal care and household markets by making prototypes that are custom made and of high accuracy.

Tomorrow’s engineers, designers and problem solvers deserve every tool available to build a brilliant future. Additive Manufacturing through 3D Printing provides limitless creativity when students get to see, hold and test their ideas in real space. The students are exposed to the cutting edge technologies which they would encounter in their careers. Rather than just seeing virtual models, students can touch and experience directly and get a true sense of how they function. With researchers, iKix Plasto 3D Prints breaks barriers with unmatched material capabilities, including impressive detail, precision and durability.

ARCHITECTS, BUILDERS AND INTERIOR DESIGNERS

Massing, conceptual models for presentation and approval can be printed with ease through 3D Printing and enables the stake holder for quick decisions. The Plasto Prints produce astonishingly smooth, architectural designs in an array of colors. The FDM technology used builds strong parts in production grade thermoplastics that are affordable.
