The marble rock is typically composed
of an interlocking mosaic
of carbonate crystals.
And the characteristic swirls and veins
of many colored marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities. Therefore the so called Marbling
is a custom hand-made technique
and thanks to the manual finish,
we are able to imitate stone cladding
on the previously prepared 3D printed surface.
A key aspect in achieving the effect
of aluminum is the perfect surface finish. This effect is obtained by applying different supplementary substances
to the surface of the 3D print.
When these substances are utilized
we can then use various methods
and techniques to achieve effects
of different aluminum shade, tailored
to the customer's needs.
The use of a special blends of paints, varnishes and waxes allows for the effect of brass to be achieved on the 3D print. The technique used in our post-production workshop makes the similarity of the object to the original extremely accurate. The proportions of zinc and copper alloys in a brass object
can vary, therefore we always thoroughly examine which shade of brass
we are after.
The bronze effect can be obtained in two different ways. We can use metal-like filaments such as bronzefill, which is a PLA filament with a certain percentage of bronze powder in it. Or we can make a bronze effect in our post-production facility through blends of paints and varnishes. Through time, original bronze objects oxygenate which results in a green like patina to appear on the surface. This effect can occurs naturally on bronzefill filaments or be specially achieved through methods of post-producing 3D prints.
Thanks to the use of special varnish
and sand adding technique, we obtain sandstone structures with a reflection
of their roughness and porosity. Appropriate colorization of the 3D print makes it resemble the original material
of a sandstone or can give it an unique shade.
The use of natural base paints, foundations fillers and special varnishes allows to obtain a porcelain effect. Depending on the needs of the project,
it is possible to create patterns combined with gilding.
Porcelain effects can be well combines with both glazes and paint allowing
a huge range of decorative treatments
in objects such as tablewares, vessels and figurines.
Styling 3D models for any type of stone
is the same as in the case of obtaining
a sandstone effect. In this case,
here we even use natural ingredients
as well as proper blends, thanks to which we obtain the desired surface. Sometimes objects like this have to be adjusted for outside condition in which case we prepare them even
for the toughest weather.
Every type of steel looks different, depending on the alloy mix from which
it's made and the exposition and effect
of time upon it, its stylization is always
a custom made job. The use of a special blends of paints and varnishes allows us to achieve specific shade of color that
we want. Through application of waxes
or additional paint blends, steel objects can be stylized to look like fresh out of the factory or old forgotten steel parts decaying in the mist of time.
STEEL / METAL
In silver stylization, there are also lots
of different method to achieve various
end results. Through silver flake methods or special paints with silver particles
we can get different characteristics more or less shiny. Adding special waxes
and additional paint mixes gives us
old silver with dark sediments that can be observed on old cutlery or silver figurines.
Wood effect can be obtained in two different ways. We can use wood-like filaments such as various shades
of woodfill, which is a PLA filament with
a certain percentage of wood pulp.
Or we can make a wood effect in our post-production facility through applying layers of wood looking powders and blends
of paints and varnishes. Wood stylizations and wood filaments can be waxed
and oiled in order bring forth a desired look.
The desired effect of copper on the
3D prints is obtained by subjecting the object to special treatments. We use for this, among others, paints and varnishes containing natural copper particles, thanks to which the outer layer retains the natural characteristics of the material.
Copper does not react with water, but
it does slowly react with atmospheric oxygen to form a layer of brown-black copper oxide which we can imitate when wanting to create an old copper objects.
To achieve the effect of gypsum look-alike we use natural adhesives and different types of chalk. Another term used for this material resemblance is stucco, which
is also often used to produce relief decoration, rather than flat surfaces. Some 3D prints can be stylized in such way so that they imitate handmade stucco works on walls or other objects.
When needed the chalk covering can be fastened with special adhesive on the outer layer making it more dust free.
One of the most popular methods
used by us when subjecting 3D printing
to post-production treatments are mixed techniques, which involve combining several or over a dozen activities
with each other. This method allows
to obtain any interesting and unique
3D Models mounted with lighting
such as industrial or architectural mock-ups, allows you to see completely different perspective of the same object.
In addition, such a model takes on realistic character, which makes it more attractive to potential customers. Constant light, special effects or weather stimulation
can all be obtained through correct light electronics and placement.
ILLUMINATED 3D PRINTS
3D printed objects don't need to boring and static prints. We can create models that have moving elements in one print
or construct a moving schematics of parts through partial assembly. Entier cars can be made, and parts of the 3D model
can be tagged with NFC chip for readouts. Screens can be mounted or immersed in the models and with electronics we can create totally interactive experiences.
INTERACTIVE 3D PRINTS
Our company is distinguished
by a rich range of creative options compared to others. Through individual approach to each of our clients,
we are able to offer unusual solutions
and original finishing that will certainly meet your approval and attract the people you need. Tell us what is it you need.
If we want something to look like gold there are different method to do this
and all of them give us slightly different end result. Special paint blends determine the colour nuance and varnishes allows to deeper the shine effect or keep it matte. We can also use gold flake method to achieve different characteristics. Adding special waxes and additional paint mixes can give us old gold effect, something that we really like in our post production facility.
