3D Printing at PartsBadger

3D Printing

Unlike CNC machining where material is removed from a solid block to create your part, 3D printing is an additive manufacturing method where material is added layer by layer.

PartsBadger utilizes industrial grade 3D printers that that have the capability to add internal fiber reinforcement to the parts during the printing process. Added fiber reinforcement will dramatically increase the strength of the parts and, depending on the design of the part, can even make them stronger than standard aluminum.

Our current material options for 3D printed parts include Carbon Fiber Infused Nylon (Onyx) and standard White Nylon. The Onyx material is black / dark graphite in color and is roughly 1.6x stronger than the standard White Nylon.

Fiber reinforcement

Fiber reinforcement can be added in 10%, 25%, 50% or 75% of total part volume. It can be focused around specific part features if required but by default is spread evenly through out the part. Refer to the material datasheet for specifications on available fiber reinforcement options.

Threaded Inserts

For parts with interior threads called out, heat-set threaded inserts will be added post printing. The part files will need to be modified to accept these inserts and our engineers will review all parts to ensure compatibility. Most common thread sizes are available and we can perform the file modifications for an additional cost.
