3D Printing and GAMENT
3D printing has been around for a little while now, but it has really started to come into its own it the last several years. Here at GAMENT we absolutely love seeing the many amazing, creative and innovative designs the advances in 3D printing technology have made possible. We wanted to share a little bit about our manufacturing process with you all here.
We design all our 3D models in house and with our local partner, print in an Aluminum/Nylon blend using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS). This uses a laser to sinter or fuse together the model layer by layer producing a nearly finished product.
Once the 3D printing process is complete the aligning magnets can be mounted to each piece. We use cookie sheets to keep our GAMENTs from jumping together while the magnets set.
Finally, each GAMENT is matched with its aligning backing and packaged for you! For more details, here is a fantastic video demonstrating the SLS 3D printing process from Shapeways!
