3D Printing Service
Hackett 3D’s print bureau in Dublin involves the latest 3D Print technology, enabling us to offer an unrivalled 3D Printing Service. If your need is urgent,we can even offer an overnight service, depending on the overall size of the 3d model. The Projet 660 from 3D Systems takes advantage of a 4-channel CMYK full-colour process, and prints uniquely high-resolution models. Ideal for Architectural models, Stop-Motion animation models, Product Design & Prototyping, Mechanical & Civil Engineering models, Medical, Educational & Fine Art models.
Technical Specifications (Projet 660 Pro)
Our Projet 660 Pro 3D Printer has a print resolution of 600 x 540 dpi and a large build capacity (381 x 254 x 203mm). It is also incredibly fast, printing at 2.8mm per minute. It’s environmentally friendly too – the powder based consumable is recycled which in turns means cost savings for you. The Project 660 offers full CMYK colour capability, which greatly enhances the options for the designer.
Our 3D printed models from the Projet 660 Pro can be finished in a number of specialised ways including spray-painted finishes, drilling, tapping, faciliating a wide range of applications.
Technical Specifications (Ultimaker)
Please note the following design suggestions
While the Projet 660 prints in 0.1mm layers, the minimum standalone wall thickness is 1.5-2mm (small features 0.4mm). It is important to take this into account thwn scaling your model.
To ensure that moveable parts do not fuse during the curing process, please allow for not less than 1mm clearance.
All objects/shells must have enclosed volume
All visible faces must be orientated to the outside (no inverted normal)
Although floating objects are acceptable in rendering 3D printing requires all components to be joined
We can fix and prepare your files for 3D printing if your CAD files have already been designed.
Accepted file formats include;
.STL (astl, ast)
