The fabrication of 3D printed products is based on the design files. There are some details and features that always need to be taken into account when designing a 3D printing part, but the best result varies depending on the different 3D printing services.Wonder Tech have a wide range of process and materials to choose from, each with its own benefits and applications.
The client wanted to create a 3D digital file of the dancer sculpture on the central lawn. Wonder Tech quickly implemented a custom 3D file service for the sculpture through 3D scanning and 3D modelling technology, let’s take a look at the process.
1. Choosing Night For Scanning Work
Usually 3D scanning is carried out indoors so that other light reflections are reduced for best results. For large sculptures that cannot be scanned indoors, a cloudy day or night is chosen when there is no direct sunlight.
In this case, we chose to scan the Dancer sculpture at night because of the weather.
2. Spraying The Sculpture With Developer And Applying Scanning Markers
Large outdoor sculptures can often be directly sprayed with a developer that increases the efficiency and accuracy of the scanning process without the fear of damaging the sculpture.
Marking points can help the 3D scanner find physical surface features more accurately to speed up the scanning process.
3. Manual Handheld X5 Scanner For Scanning Sculptures
4. Adjustment Of The Scanned Data To Obtain A Complete 3D Digital File
The 3D digital file obtained from the scan is adjusted and repaired by the software to ensure that there are no problems and that it is ready for direct 3D printing or other processing.
Aftercare Process: Vacuum Coating The Surface Of The Dancer Sculpture
The ability of 3D scanning technology to measure the external surface dimensions of a large sculpture in a very short period of time, preserving the full dimensional data and exterior shape, has very many applications in the conservation and restoration of cultural heritage.
Also, because of the ease and adjustability of 3D digital files, it is ideal for designers who want to equivalently adjust the dimensions of a sculpture for production, or to make modifications and secondary development of the object.

Dimensional Accuracy In 3D Printing
The dimensional accuracy refers to how accurate the size and form of the printed part are compared to that in the CAD design. Factors that affect dimensional accuracy include material quality, equipment, post-processing, and more. Dimensional tolerance, shrinkage, and support requirements are three key elements to measuring dimensional accuracy. Below are the dimensional tolerance of different 3D processes.
|FDM dimensional tolerance||prototyping (desktop):±0.5% (lower limit:±0.5 mm), industrial:±0.15% (lower limit:±0.2 mm)|
|SLA dimensional tolerance||prototyping (desktop):±0.5% (lower limit:±0.10 mm) industrial:±0.15% (lower limit:±0.01 mm)|
|SLS/MJF dimensional tolerance||±0.3% (lower limit:±0.3 mm)|
Layer Height In 3D Printing
Layer height is a measurement of the amount of material extruded by the printer’s nozzle for each layer of your part. It is measured in microns or millimeters. The selection of layer height is important for some 3D printing technologies, such as SLA and FDM. Below are the typically applied layer height for different processes.
- – FDM: 50 – 400 μm
- – SLA: 25 – 100 μm
- – SLS: 80 – 120 μm
- – MJF: 80 μm
- – DMLS/SLM: 30 – 50 μm
3D printing and prototyping have advanced development in recent years. With these improvements, metal 3D printing has become a possibility. Metal 3D printing is used in a variety of sectors. Companies that use metal 3D printing are discovering that 3D printing complicated metal parts in low quantities is considerably more cost-effective than traditional methods of production. Metal 3D printed items are cheaper and have a wider range of material alternatives. Aluminum is a popular metal for 3D printing since it is both sturdy and lightweight. Steel is another extensively used material that is perfect for industrial applications due to its strength, good polish, and temperature tolerance. Metal 3D printing is utilized in a wide range of sectors for a variety of purposes. Functional prototypes, end-use parts, Jigs, tooling, and fixtures are some of the applications.
