The model is built using a 3D file which we section into layers using a specialised program. We generate the supports needed in areas where the model has to be attached to the construction platform.
The system works using the same principle as a hot glue gun, with nozzles that melt, extrude and deposit the thermoplastic. It uses thumbwheels with plastic filament, which is melted and deposited onto the platform through the nozzles, before instantly hardening. The nozzles move over the platform on axes, drawing the model layer line by line. When the layer is finished, the platform is lowered and the second layer is created, and so on until the model is completed. The supports generated by this technology can be removed manually or, in some cases, they can be dissolved in a specific liquid for easy removal.
