3D designing is easy, 3D designing is hard!
I know, I said that in much the same breath!!
But believe me, that is the way it is!!!
If anyone thinks that 3d printing after visualization of it in 3d is easy then they must work hands-on on it to understand that it is not so much easy after all. And then if you think that printing such models is very hard, then yet again you must try it hands on to know that it is all a mental block.
Here is a list of the top design tips that 3d printers across the globe agree upon:
- Knowing the nature of the material that you are working on:
It is important that the person who is working in a 3D architectural visualizing and rendering studio or any other workshop to understand material science. The material’s nature will vary and that is what the person in charge will have to bear in mind.
- Keep in mind that printing technologies vary for different purposes and material:
Aluminum and silver cannot be designed and printed in a similar way using 3D printing. Similarly, there is a vast difference between printing in rubber or polymer-based material and in metals. So, the printer will not just have to be different but the printing technology itself will be different for all the different products. It is a good idea to check websites of various labs and studios which provide an easy guide for the material and the technology that is most apt for printing them.
- Determining the optimum wall thickness:
This can be a dicey thing. Thin product wall thickness can make a weak print and can give away at the slightest effort or force. Again, a thick product wall can induce too much stress and can make for a brittle print.
