With the 3D printer it is possible to make your drawings touchable. A drawn fantasy comes to “life”. Your design is printed layer by layer in plastic. The advantage of this is that your object becomes very lightweight. During printing you can see the details being built up.
Prototype or master
A 3D print gives a good impression of your design. When printing a prototype, you can see how all the details turn out and then decide to make adjustments. Such an intermediate print is an inexpensive way of checking whether everything is working out as you would like.
A successful 3D print can be used as a master. With a master, we can make a casting mold to take the design into production. This can be done for both tin and plastic castings.
