FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What can digital manufacturing produce?

Digital manufacturing has the capability to produce virtually anything, such as models and prototypes, and the process is often used for engineering testing and demonstrations. For more information see ‘Our Technology’.

How much does digital manufacturing cost?

Digital manufacturing is a cost effective method of producing prototypes and larger runs of manufactured products. The cost is dependent on size, detail and filament (material used). For more information, please make an enquiry to discuss your next project and receive a quote.

How long does it take to produce a prototype?

The time taken to develop a prototype is dependent on the item, design and size. Following an enquiry, process printing can take as little as a couple of hours or longer depending on the product’s size. Castech 3D produces quality, functional products in just days.

How large can I print?

You will be able to print up to 406mm x 300mm x 406mm. Alternatively, for larger designs, these are split into parts and then joint into sections.

What are the advantages of digital manufacturing and 3D printing? What can digital manufacturing achieve?

Digital manufacturing and 3D printing is fast, affordable and customisable. There is no waste of materials and no tooling is required. The process allows for product visualisation and models. Castech 3D has the capacity to provide mass customisation and continuous product improvement. Through the CAD design it is easy to communicate needs whilst also allowing for innovation. 3D printing is cutting-edge technology and enables print on demand. The models that are developed are effective sales tools, particularly because they are made from lightweight thermoplastics. Digital manufacturing can replace conventional manufacturing methods and allow for efficient production of products.

What materials can we print with?

Currently printing in ABS and PLA but we are looking to expand our options in the future so enquire now to see how we can choose what best suits you.
