Years In Rapid Prototyping & 3D Printing
MNL Utilise All of the Main Plastic 3D Printing Technologies
Here you will find examples of their work categorised by specific 3D printing technologies:
SLA – Stereolithography
Stereolithography (SLA 3D Printing) is the most widely used 3D Printing / rapid prototyping technology.
FDM – Fused Deposition Modelling
Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM 3D Printing) uses the same tried and tested thermoplastics found in traditional manufacturing processes.
SLS – Selective Laser Sintering
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS 3D Printing) is used for the building of functional parts. At MNL, we utilise a HiQ Sinterstation SLS 3D printing machine.
3D Colour Printing
One of the latest 3D printing processes, 3D colour printing is a huge step forward for the design and development sectors.
