At Tractus3D we are really keen on showing the possibilities of 3D printing. We don’t just want to show some parts, but we wanted to showcase the endless possibilities real clients of Tractus3D. Therefore we want to show you the great work Styles Werbetechnik does with our 3D printers, in making channel letters.
Channel letters are one of the focus points of Styles Werbetechnik. Channelletters come in all kinds of sizes, shapes and materials. They are usually made of aluminium or plastics, can be painted or unpainted, and come with or without lighting. In other words, they come in a wide variety of designs, shapes and materials. So Styles was looking for an all-round solution.
The solution was 3D printed channel letters.
Where old fashioned techniques for making channel letters are limited to certain sizes and shapes, for example the depth of the channel letter is minimum 60mm. The possibilities with 3D printed channel letters are endless. Difficult shapes, serifs, sharp angles or other design elements can be easy realized, and also the depth can be much smaller, even getting down to under 30mm.
3D printed channel letters give endless possibilities and give Styles an advantage over their competitors. They have less costs, save material and can go all the way with their creativity.
The process of printing 3D channel letters is very easy. As always it starts with the 3D design on the computer, from there you need to make sure the different parts fit together like a glove and make sure it is strong enough by design.
After that, you make sure it’s sliced proparly with Simplify3D and then it’s just the easiest part, and that’s the 3D printing.
