3D PRINTED SIGNS
Everything stays different, we thought, when we first dealt with 3D printing. Are we trying to make a copy of the past? Or do we use the possibilities of additive manufacturing to find new ways and designs to make channel letters?
Instead of consuming or machining material to produce a lower case for a profile letter, we now only use the amount of semi-finished products that we actually need for the production. The fact that starting materials can also be used, which are made from renewable raw materials and biocomposable according to EN 13432, makes things even smarter.
With the use of 3Dprint as additive manufacturing we go new and creative ways. And open up possibilities for new designs of illuminated letters, which were previously difficult or impossible to implement.
Also special is the surface with the visible and noticeable layers, which gives the surface an independent character. And with a variety of lighting options that the print process of the dual-extruder makes possible, you can set another highlight with 3Dprinted!

Base material for our 3Dprints are polyactides (PLA), which are among the polyesters. From you our filament is made, from renewable sources such. Maize starch, making it a biocompatible raw material.
Our filament is a so-called PLA blend to achieve the desired strength and heat resistance. But even with the lignin fibers used, a natural raw material is used.

You have always had the idea to let your channel letters shine sideways? Not quite, but only as a highlight of the lighting effect? Voila, the dual extruder makes possible what is otherwise only affordable in mass production.
A combination of PLA blend in silver or black with a colored PLA stripe makes your sign look shiny and unique.

What works with front lit letters, of course, also works with backlights. In a base housing made of PLA-blend, we use fine contours made of PET-G to set fine light accents that makes a retro-reflector shine bright even on dark surfaces.
The contours can also be built in color. Satiniced acrylic glass as well as PET-G can be used as backer.

Nice, strong, black – carbon has that extra something!
The material is convincing not only in terms of optics. The lightweight also offers B1 status in terms of fire protection as a starting material. We use a PET-G filament with carbon fibers (C20) for the letter body.
As a front material only PET-G white opal is used for B1 requirement.
