Can 3D printing print soft rubber materials

The earliest manufacturer of soft glue printing equipment should be Israel, followed by the United States. In recent two years, manufacturers with production equipment in China have launched equipment that can print soft glue.

The brands with the highest market share of 3D printing soft glue should be Israeli equipment, but they have something in common with American equipment. Compared with the materials of 3D printing resin, the maximum printing size of 3D printing soft glue is slightly smaller. If you remember correctly, the maximum printing size of American and Israeli equipment does not exceed 400mm, and only black and white in color, There are no other colors to choose from.

Although the printing size is small, one advantage of Israel's 3D printing soft glue equipment is that it has the highest accuracy compared with the printing soft glue equipment in the United States and China. From the theoretical data, they can achieve the accuracy of 0.016mm, but usually we can basically achieve the accuracy of 0.025mm.

The biggest highlight of China's 3D printing soft glue equipment is that it can print full-color soft glue in 3D. Happily, the printing soft glue equipment in Israel and the United States can't print full-color soft glue, and the printing size of China's soft glue equipment will be relatively larger, which can be up to 500mm. However, if you touch it from your personal hand, the accuracy of domestic printed soft glue is still slightly worse than that of Israeli and American equipment. However, in recent years, domestic machines have developed rapidly, and there is a trend of catching up from behind. Maybe a few years later, domestic 3D printing soft glue machines will surpass foreign ones.

Another inconvenience of 3D printing soft glue is that the pricing method can not be calculated according to the weight or volume like 3D printing resin or nylon material. The basic pricing method of printing soft glue is that the customer needs to give the drawing to the printing manufacturer and calculate it in the software of the printing manufacturer's equipment, so it will affect the speed of quotation, which is very inconvenient

3D printing color soft glue

So in the early years when there were few printing soft glue devices in the market, how to solve the problem when encountering soft glue hand board model? In fact, we should all know that it is made through silica gel lamination. Of course, the method of silicone laminating soft glue is still widely used in the market to solve the problem of soft glue hand board. The difference between it and 3D printing soft glue is mainly in soft hardness.
