    Which method is more cost-effective, such as prototype 3D printing or CNC processing?

    During prototype proofing, some products can be made either by CNC processing or by 3D printing. Because CNC processing is relatively complicated and the workload is larger than 3D printing in theory, most customers take it for granted that CNC processing is more expensive than 3D printing. Is this the case? Li Gong, the professional master of precision models, introduced the differences between the two processing methods in detail According to Li, CNC processes need to be programmed and disassembled. Generally, a CNC machine needs 3-4 people, which means a large labor cost. Therefore, the cost of CNC mainly depends…

    3D printing enables mankind to finally say no to oil pollution

    Environmental problems have always been closely related to all mankind. Although countries all over the world have paid more attention to environmental problems in recent years, and some environmental pollution problems have indeed been improved, the situation is still not optimistic. For example, the oil spill, which is a serious pollution to the environment, will do great harm to the environment once it leaks, and the subsequent pollution will last for several years. “I think the reason why the plant surface is super hydrophobic is that it lives on the water surface and needs air to survive,” said researcher Yang…
