Solyfonte is equipped for 3D printing of lost wax prototypes. Send us your CAO files (.STL Type) , and we will proceed to manufacture them. You do not have any 3D files? Consult our CAD dedicated page.
All our wax pieces can be melted in the metal of your choice by our craftsmen (bronze, brass, aluminum).
To print your documents and works in 3D, we need first a 3D file of your part. It will serve as a command for the machine. If you do not have a 3D file, our prototypists and designers will create your part.
There are many models of 3D printers. Quality is our priority, Solyfonte uses only the most accurate 3D printers to ensure a premium realization of your parts.
When we launch the 3D printer, the machine will work by wax layers. From bottom to top, the printer will deposit successive layers of wax, which will give the part’s volume. Our machine is equipped with a print head with a nozzle where the hot wax flows. A cutter will remove the wax projections by using the pressure head.
We use two types of wax to manufacture your prototypes:
- The white wax, which serves as a support during installation of the blue wax
- The blue wax, which is the basis of your part.
When scrapping, the white wax will be completely eliminated leaving only the blue wax for display. The blue wax is perfectly suited for the melting of metals. Once your items are completed we can go directly to the melting of your parts.
With our machine, it is possible to produce more or less bulky parts. Everything will depend on the position in which the part is manufactured. So we can use a horizontal position for large parts, while for a small parts, we prefer the vertical position. Everything depends on the shape, volume and complexity of the part.
Our 3D printer is versatile. We can manufacture many different parts on the same printing tray. Our prototype designers have to only be vigilant to the part arrangement on the printing board.
The manufacturing time of your parts will depend on their complexity and their volume. A prototype can take between 10 and 60 hours of work.
