Swiss 3D Tec auf der TCT Show2018

Swiss 3D Tec at TCT Show

From the 25th to the 27th of October 2018 the TCT Show 2018 took place in Birmingham. Swiss 3D Tec was on site and introduced the visitors to the DM3. The DM3 is a Swiss-built desktop 3D printer for industrial applications. Its reliability and precision are unique in its class. The independent twin extruders make it possible to combine different materials and different colors. The large construction volume of 310 x 215 x 310 mm, [...]

Swiss 3D Tec auf der TCT Show

Vom 25. – 27. Oktober 2018 fand in Birmingham die TCT Show 2018 statt. Swiss 3D Tec war vor Ort und hat den Messebesuchern den DM3 vorgestellt. Der DM3 ist ein in der Schweiz gebauter Desktop 3D-Drucker für industrielle Anwendungen. Seine Zuverlässigkeit und Präzision sind in seiner Klasse einmalig. Die unabhängigen Doppelextruder ermöglichen es, verschiedene Materialien und verschiedene Farben zu kombinieren. Das grosse Bauvolumen von 310 x 215 x 310 mm, eine Schichtauflösung von 0,05 [...]

Filament storage – How to do it right!

How can I store my filament without losing quality? Sooner or later everyone who works with FDM printers will ask themselves this question. We at Swiss 3D Tec would like to give you important information about the properties of filaments and the different storage possibilities. Storing filaments correctly – WHY? What could happen to these colorful plastic rolls? More than you think. Most filaments absorb moisture from the ambient air over time. Nylon and PVA are [...]

Prototypenfertigung mithilfe von 3D-Druckern

Prototype manufacturing using 3D printers

Prototypes have been manufactured using 3D printers for quite some time. The first additive manufacturing processes were developed over 30 years ago for the production of prototypes (rapid prototyping). Since then, plastic-based processes such as stereo-lithography have been used in an enormously wide range of sectors to produce conceptual, design, ergonomic and functional models in the early stages of product development. The key benefit is due to its ability to transform digitally produced product [...]

3. Organic plastics seminar in Rapperswil

On April 19th, we attended the 3rd Organic Plastics Seminar at the University of Rapperswil, presenting our new DM3 at the same time. This specialist industry event helped us to gain a better insight into organic plastics and their potential applications. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who visited our display at the event. Some experiences and insights from the seminars have been captured by the University in this video:

Vasenmodus 3D Drucke

Vase mode for 3D prints

Many 3D printed models are intended as hollow bodies, but are designed as filled objects. The 3D models are sealed at both ends and filled with filling material. This can lead to confusion when printing. Therefore, we explain the following slicer settings for the perfect expression of a hollow body such as vases, pots, or cups.   We will explain the procedure using a concrete example. You can also try it out with your own [...]

How does layer density affect 3D printing?

3D printing is also known as additive or generative manufacturing. A 3D printer superimposes several layers of a particular material and connects them. This creates a 3D object. At this point, the question arises as to what effects the layer density has on 3D printing. You can find the answer here!   To show the effects of layer density, we print the identical object twice. The only difference is layer density. For [...]

Swiss 3D Tec auf der AM Expo 2018 in Luzern

AMX Fair Lucerne 2018

The AMX (Additive Manufacturing Expo) from 6-7 March 2018 in Lucerne came to a successful close. We had numerous visitors at our Swiss 3D Tec booth. We are also pleased to have selected a winner—Karin Seba—in our AMX competition for the color selection of the DM3. She can look forward to a 100Fr voucher for filaments from our online shop. The competition showed that both the red and grey printers were popular. Nevertheless, [...]

Function-dependent color adjustment

Today we present a new feature of our DM3 3D printer. The function-dependent color adjustment. The printer changes the color of the backlight depending on the activated or selected function. A total of 18 colors are available. In addition, the user can set colors manually, simply by touch.

Prototypenfertigung mithilfe von 3D-Druckern

Prototypenfertigung mithilfe von 3D-Druckern

Prototypenfertigung mithilfe von 3D-Druckern gibt es schon seit geraumer Zeit. Die ersten additiven Fertigungsverfahren wurden vor über 30 Jahren für die Herstellung von Prototypen entwickelt (Rapid Prototyping). Seitdem werden kunststoffbasierte Verfahren wie die Stereolithografie in den unterschiedlichsten Branchen für die Herstellung von Konzept-, Design-, Ergonomie- und Funktionsmodellen in frühen Stadien der Produktentwicklung eingesetzt. Der zentrale Vorteil besteht in der schnellen, kostengünstigen und detailgetreuen Umsetzung digital vorliegender Produktentwürfe in reale Objekte. Dies wirkt sich stark [...]
