The light curing cnc rapid prototyping system and the laser selective sintering rapid prototyping system are the two main processing methods in the application of hand-board model making. So what are the similarities and differences between these two rapid prototyping? ?
1. The similarities between the two rapid prototyping technologies
The principles of these two molding techniques are very similar. In addition, they are indispensable technologies for the production of hand molds, and are also the most widely used methods in industrial design.
Second, the difference between the two rapid prototyping technologies
The material used in the light curing cnc rapid prototyping system is a powdery substance. The liquid-shaped photosensitive resin used in the laser selective sintering rapid prototyping system. The advantage of the light curing rapid prototyping system is that all powdery substances that can be dissolved are It can be used to make prototypes or models, and the manufactured products can be used as the first test and structural assembly of the product. Therefore, the materials that can be used by the laser selective sintering method are very wide, such as nylon materials, PC materials, other wax powders, and even some hardware materials.
Generally high-end crafts, products with high precision requirements and high surface finish requirements, suitable for rapid prototyping with light curing molding. If it is a general large-scale product, the roughness requirement is not high, and the product with relatively low price chooses light curing molding The laser powder is sintered.
In the practical application of industry, the advantages and disadvantages of the above two cnc rapid prototyping technologies are combined to increase the chance of success for your own products and reduce the company's budget costs. This is very important in the current fierce competition in the industry!
