Cutting Edge Technologies for Chicago 3D Printing Services

SLS 3D printing services in Chicago, Illinois remain as the standout technology for manufacturing high-performance parts. An excellent choice for manufacturing complex structures with moving or interlocking parts, SLS 3D printing services in Chicago are extremely appealing to designers, engineers, and industrial companies of all sizes. 


SLA 3D printing is powerful and highly respected. SLA 3D printing is widely used for creating intricate 3D models, master patterns for industrial molds, and detailed, functional parts in Chicago. With SLA 3D printing designers and engineers have the ability to create strong, intricate prototypes quickly. Industrial users are able to manufacture durable, functional parts with high resolution and tight tolerances. SLA parts can be 3D printed on the small or large scale with precise, complex geometries.

Casting with metal is multifaceted, and usually includes numerous, careful steps. At Shapeways, the process is accompanied by modern technology like 3D printing to make wax patterns for building plaster molds. Sprues are added so that metal can flow through, as the initial wax is melted and drained, thus explaining the term lost wax casting. Wax Casting requires considerable expertise, and a supply of sophisticated tools and materials.
