3D Printing: X, Y and Z Axis

Posted by Luxexcel on Jun 10, 2015 2:13:00 PM

X,Y and Z Axis

Every day Luxexcel is trying to improve our service for you. Three months ago we launched our online order portal where you can upload your design and where you can easily order. We want to inform you as best as possible to get good uploads and give the best service to you. Therefore we shall discuss the X, Y and Z orientation in 3D printing.

Transparent 3D printing materials

Posted by Luxexcel on May 29, 2015 2:11:00 PM

To follow up on our earlier post on transparent 3D printing technologies, the Luxexcel team measured samples of different 3D printing technologies. In order to benchmark different 3D printing materials, the optical properties of sample plates were measured. As shown in the image below there are different variants in visual transparency. The Luxexcel team measured the light transmission and yellowness index of the different transparent 3D printing materials.

Transparent 3D printing?

Posted by Luxexcel on Mar 5, 2015 8:18:00 PM

Creating perfectly transparent products is rather difficult with 3D printing. Several materials and technologies are available on the market. But what are the differences between these technologies and Luxexcel's patented 3D printing technology for optics manufacturing and what does your product look like after printing?

Powderbed Fusion

Posted by Luxexcel on Dec 12, 2014 11:12:00 AM

In the Powder Bed Fusion process the following commonly used printing techniques come by: Selective Heat Sintering (SHS), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Electron Beam Melting (EBM), Selective Laser Melting (SLM) and Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS). The Powderbed Fusion technique uses any materials that are powder based. However, there are also some common metals and polymers used like nylon, stainless steel and titanium.

Differences in AM manufacturing technologies

Posted by Luxexcel on Aug 14, 2014 12:10:00 PM

Even though almost everyone likes to use 3D Printing synonymous for all the different Additive Manufacturing processes, in real life there are many individual processes which vary in method of manufacturing layer. Those processes can differ and that depends on the machine technology and material used. However there are major differences between additive manufacturing technologies and the most common types of technologies are explained in this blogpost.
