Techniques in 3D printing

There are many different ways with which 3D printers realise products. A general characteristic that all layered constructions have of the product from digital ‘slices’ of the 3D CAD design. SLS and FDM are the designated methods for realising functional components from plastic. Additionally SLA is available for products with very smooth surfaces, high precision and functional mechanical properties. 

The pages below give you additional information per technique and a brief explanation of the way in which a product is realised by the machine concerned.
