3D printing

The 3D printing technologies commonly used include FDM, SLA, MJF, SLS, SLM, etc. Each technique is suitable for various materials, precision levels, and applications. They can achieve diverse effects such as flexibility, rigidity, plastic, metal, transparency, and opacity, widely applied in rapid prototyping, personalized customization in the medical field, and the manufacturing of complex components in the aerospace industry.


SLM - Selective Laser Melting

This is the casing for a smart ring, made using SLM (Selective Laser Melting) technology. Samples have been produced using three different materials: aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel. These materials are widely used in the wearable sector due to their biocompatibility, low signal shielding, and lightweight properties.

Material Al, Ti, Stainless steel
Process SLM
Color Original color
Finishing -
Precision ±0.1 mm
Lead Time 5-7 working days

Note: SLM metal printing is currently not suitable for printing frame structures or rod-like structures due to a certain shrinkage rate, which significantly affects the deformation of these types of structures.

SLA - Stereolithography

SLA - Stereolithography

This is a ring-shaped craft item made using SLA (Stereolithography) technology and electroplated resin material. After production, it undergoes polishing and electroplating to achieve the final sample effect. If CNC machining or injection molding were used, the prototyping cost could be ten times that of this sample!

Material Resin
Process SLA
Color Purple
Finish Electroplating
Precision ±0.1 mm
Lead Time 7-10 working days
MOQ 5 pcs

Note: The electroplating process has a minimum order quantity (MOQ) of 5pcs. The reference prices and lead times mentioned above are based on commonly used colors in electroplating factories. Colors can be customized based on Pantone color codes after evaluation by engineers, but this may result in price and lead time variations.


SLS - Selective Laser Sintering

This is a bracket handle manufactured using SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) technology and Nylon material. The outer surface is finely polished, and the internal cavities are cleaned of residual material. This combination of process and material results in strong mechanical performance, and the product quality can rival that of injection molding. It can be rapidly and reliably applied in small-batch production stages.

Color Original color
Finish Fine Polishing
Precision ±0.1 mm
Lead Time Every 100 pcs 7-10 working days 
Yield 95% (measured on 500 pcs)
MOQ 1 pcs

Note: Currently, the surface treatment options available for SLS technology services are typically fine polishing (gray) or fine polishing with black dyeing (black). Due to the limitations of the technology, the surface finish can only achieve a coarse sand texture. Other colors can be customized based on Pantone color codes after evaluation by engineers, but this may result in a minimum order quantity (MOQ) and variations in price and lead time.
