What Are The Types Of 3D Printers?

Apr 20, 2019

1, FDM printers, this is also the printer that sees more on the market. About 60% of this year is selling FDM printers. FDM printers are rapidly formed by fused deposition, the main materials ABS and PLA. The advantage is that it is cheap and you can print anything you want to print. The disadvantage is that the accuracy is not high, the printing speed is slow, and the surface is too rough.

2, SLA printers, there are relatively more on the market, less domestic sales, relatively more foreign sales, mainly model players and families to buy desktop-level SLA printers. This type of printer is formed by photocuring, the main material is photosensitive resin. The price is more expensive than the FDM printer, but it is highly accurate and can meet the requirements of model players and home users.

3, 3DP printers, relatively few seen in the market, mainly used in industrial production, because the price is more expensive, families, schools generally do not buy such printers. This type of printer is bonded by three-dimensional powder. The main material powder materials, such as ceramic powder, metal powder, plastic powder.

4, SLS printers, seen in the market relatively few, mainly used in industrial production and military industrial production. This type of printer is made of selective laser sintering, the main material of the powder material.

5, LOM printer, seen in the market is relatively small, the current life is not very much in need of this type of printer, but it still has the value of existence. These types of printers are manufactured in solid parts, mainly paper, metal film, and plastic film.

6, DLP printers, there are relatively more on the market, less domestic sales, relatively more foreign sales, such printers through light curing molding, the main material photosensitive resin. It is highly accurate and can meet the requirements of model players and home users. This type of printer is similar to an SLA printer.

DLP printer

7, FFF printers, is also seen on the market more printers. FFF printers are manufactured by fuses, the main materials are PLA and ABS. It's cheap and you can print anything you want to print. The disadvantage is that the accuracy is not high, the printing speed is slow, and the surface is too rough. Similar to an FDM printer.

8, EMB printer, mainly used in human bones, military aerospace industry. The EMB printer is formed by electron beam melting, the main material is titanium alloy.
