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). Fixtures can be divided into three types: process assembly fixtures, project test fixtures and circuit board test fixtures. 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 and labor. Now there is 3D printing service that can solve some of the problems of making fixtures. Goku Printing Workshop below 3D printing service manufacturers introduce to you that different from 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 a 3D model file of the jig according to the actual situation. After the model is designed, it can be printed to the 3D printing service company. After the printing is completed, they can use it 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 resistance 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 field is still prototyping, which means that 3D printing is used to shorten the product design cycle and accelerate the introduction to the market.
