MATERIALS

ABS rapid prototyping services across Canada and the US. Quality rapid prototyping materials like ABS M30 and ASA are ideal for moderate use prototyping and functional parts. Both ASA and ABS M30 come in a large variety of colors that are 3D printable by 3D Print Western. ASA is ideal for outdoor use due to its improved UV and weather resistance over ABS M30.ABS-M30 is engineered for rapid prototyping with FDM technology. This go-to, cost effective plastic is an all around crowd pleaser. This colorful, general use plastic brings your project to life in the exact way you’ve envisioned it. Download ABS-M30 spec sheet.

ASA has stepped up and claimed its spot as the new-and-improved ABS-M30. ASA has either matched or exceeded ABS-M30’s mechanical properties in every category. The amazing surface finish, full rainbow of color options, and strong UV resistance is quickly making ASA the go-to favorite for cost effective prototyping. Download ASA Spec sheet.

Rapid prototyping services with soluble supports by 3D Print Western. Rapid prototyping services offered in Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto areas. This is a CENTAC air compressor scale model 3D printed by 3D Print Western in Edmonton, Alberta. The use of support material allows for near limitless design capabilities and intricate features.All materials (with the exception of ULTEM’s breakaway supports) have a soluble release (SR) support material. The soluble support material is used alongside the main model material during prints. The dual printer heads allows for extrusion of both model material and support material in each layer.

The finished part is then placed in our cleaning bath which dissolves the supports, leaving a perfect, untouched model behind. Soluble release technology virtually eliminates design limitations. You can now 3D print hollow structures and moving parts within models. Parts can be stacked on top of each other, separated by thin layers of support material. Undercuts and overhangs can easily be made, and no draft angles are required.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

FDM is an ideal 3D printing process for Rapid Prototyping. Rapid prototyping services in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Toronto and across Canada and the US. Rapid prototype your design today!

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) relies on an additive principle of laying down very thin strips of material. A plastic filament is passed through a heated printer head and quickly melts to a liquid state. The printer head moves in 2 directions (much like a paper printer), laying down the liquid plastic. The plastic quickly cools to solid (like ink).

After a layer is completed, the print platform lowers down, adding the third dimension to printing. The next strips of material are placed on top of the original strips and the part is built layer by layer, from the bottom up.

Rapid Prototyping a Postcard holder. Rapid Prototyping Services by 3D Print Western in Edmonton, Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary areas. Blue ASA at 0.010 inch layer height. FDM is a form of Additive manufacturing allows you to build parts layer by layer, from the bottom up.

Here you can see 3D Print Western’s own FDM printer in action. This postcard holder is being built from the bottom up, layer by layer. A support material can be used within the model so that extreme angles, overhangs, lofts, and complex geometry can be 3D printed. Nearly every geometrical feature imaginable is possible with our rapid prototyping services.

Our soluble supports dissolve away in a bath after the part is complete, leaving a perfect model behind. Soluble support technology makes rapid prototyping a dream, and 3D Print Western would love to help your dreams come true!
