Benefits:

Save Time

Start with maximum amount of stock, only print where needed.

Access All Sides

No additional setups/2nd ops. No support material.

Great for PCB prototypes 

Strength

Core of the part is cast or extruded stock, with known properties. Printed TPU is tough and reliable

Accuracy

Use a milling process to achieve accurate interfaces for assembly, straight off the machine

Process (more details in manual):

1.

Install rotary axis and fixture

  • Plug-and-play

  • Modular fixture options - window frame, vise, ER32 collet

2.

Clamp a sheet of stock in the fixture

  • ABS machines best and is compatible with a range of printable materials

3.

Find the top surface of the stock with the touch probe

  • Use Work Coordinate System (WCS) to tell the machine where to work while respecting axis limits

4.

Begin milling operation on side A

  • Standard G-code, straight out of CAM package with Diabase post

5.

Print TPU on side A

  • Automatic toolchanges - easy change from mill to print

6.

Flip fixture and repeat steps 3-5

  • Typical A-axis (G1 A180) - can be automated in CAM

HYBRID PROCESS WITH ROTARY INDEXING
