Range Rover Sport Light Cluster
Malcolm Nicholls Limited (MNL) has been manufacturing clear 3d printing parts including Light Lenses, headlights and reflectors for many years we have a well-established history within the automotive sector and in particular, 3D printed car headlights and reflectors using transparent 3D Printing technologies.
Malcolm Nicholls were asked to supply a full set of 3D-printed car headlights and reflectors. MNL were supplied with finalized 3D CAD data, and using this data MNL was able to produce 3D printed masters. In this instance, the Len’s were produced using MNL’s Stereolithography (SLA) process and the reflectors were produced via their 3D print machine Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). The lenses were hand finished to a perfect gloss then used as a pattern for silicone tools then using a water-clear UV stable polyurethane material to give perfect optically clear castings. Once the reflectors had been built via SLS they too were hand finished to an ideal gloss then a subsequent process of vacuum metalizing was applied.
There are differences in textures on the reflectors these were produced as separate components and then hand fabricated together. If you have a Light Lense 3D Printing need then get in touch with us.
