What are the processes and materials of 3D printing jigs and fixtures?

A jig is a tool of woodwork, ironwork, fitter, machinery, electric control and other handicrafts. It is mainly used as a tool to assist in controlling position or movement (or both). Jigs can be divided into three types: process assembly jigs, project test jigs and circuit board test jigs. There are many non-standard fixtures, which need to be designed and produced according to the actual work situation. In the past, traditional methods were used to produce time-consuming and labor-intensive. Now there is 3D printing service that can solve some of the fixture production problems. 3D printing service manufacturers introduce to you that unlike the traditional cutting process 'doing subtractionWithout cutting, drilling or subsequent machining, 3D printing can have the advantages of rapid prototyping, high flexibility, and cost saving. It doesn't care how complicated the geometry is. On the contrary, the more complicated the structure may be due to more hollows, less materials, and lower cost. This is the opposite of traditional production. This production method of 3D printing is very suitable for the production of non-standard fixtures.   The general process of 3D printing jigs is that the manufacturer designs the 3D model files of the jigs according to the actual situation. Once the models are designed, they can be printed to the 3D printing service company. After printing, they can be used directly after post-processing. The materials used for 3D printing jigs should be selected according to the purpose of the jig. For general jigs, photosensitive resin can be used. It has a certain strength and toughness and can meet the requirements of some use jigs. If the jigs require durability High temperature, you can use nylon material to print, nylon can withstand the temperature of 175 degrees, and the strength and toughness are better than resin.   The development path of 3D printing applications roughly has three stages, prototyping-manufacturing of fixtures-printing the final parts, and advancing layer by layer. At present, the major application area is still prototyping, which means that 3D printing is used to shorten the product design cycle and accelerate the introduction to the market.
