Methods and Machines


We have a few technologies & partners that help bring your ideas to the real world.

 Project 660:

This is an amazing printer that prints in a plaster-like material. The kicker is that it prints 4-channel CMYK full-color which adds a whole new level of detail to your 3D prints. It has a build volume of  10 x 15 x 8 inches. With a build speed of 1.1 inches an hour,  It prints at a resolution of 600 x 540 dpi with a minimum feature size of 0.004 inches. Keep in mind this is “plaster-like”. If you make something in plaster that is .004 inches it will be very fragile.

We infiltrate our models with wax (our fav), cyanoacrylate, or in we leave it in the buff.

Envisiontec Perfactory SXGA:

The Envisiontec is a fantastic printer. It can produce intricate and beautiful high detailed 3D prints at as low as 50 µm resolution! This is even more impressive when you factor in their ERM (Enhanced Resolution Module) technology. ERM virtually eliminates buildlines. The build volume on this machine is 140 x 105 x 230 mm which is 5.5 x 4.125 x 9.0625 inches for all you US folk.

3D Systems Viper si2:

We aren’t going to lie to you. This guy has been around the block but he is a die-hard workhorse. We modified him with a solid state laser and collimated the laser beam to a finer diameter which allows finer details than the factory state allowed. Normally the z-layer height is about 0.025 mm (0.0001 in) in high res mode. The build size allows for 10 in cubed parts. This machine is also ideal for making larger stacking parts.

EOSint P730:

You know how you are not supposed to have a favorite child? Well, sintering is incredibly robust and versatile. This baby has a build volume of 700 mm x 380 mm x 580 mm (27.6 x 15 x 22.9 in). It also has two lasers that make this very fast… What’s not to love?

Mini FFF Bot farm:

We’re a big fan of JGAurora systems. They are robust and highly adaptable. That allows us to house many of them to produce parts for you in flash.We use them as the foundation for our build your own 3D printer workshops too.

Rostock MAX

The main selling point of the Rostock is certainly the Delta style robot system instead of the traditional Cartesian style. This style offers a faster printing speed and positioning accuracy than its little cousins, resulting in smoother curves. We suped it up even faster by adding a .8mm nozzle and large z steps in order to 3D print fast and solid.

The build volume the Rostock MAX is huge.  Printing volume 270mm ø x 375mm or 10.62 in. x  14.76 in!

B9Creator

This 3D printer was a game changer for us. The results we received on the B9 rivaled some professional printers. The machine uses projected slices as images on a vat of UV curable resin to create its model, a process known as digital light processing (DLP).

Some of its material is tuned to make prints with 5 microns ‘high’ slices. That’s amazing! But the thing that makes it even better for us is that the B9 resin is the best we’ve used for jewelry burn out.
