View Your Data Like Never Before

We create 3D models from a wide variety of data sources in full, photo-realistic color. The equipment is fast, accurate and uses eco-friendly, non-hazardous materials with zero liquid waste. We have the technology to quickly create high resolution models in hours, not days. The models can be sanded, drilled, tapped, electroplated and have high temperature resistance for use in molding. Please contact Cypress 3D Printing for more assistance!

Some 3D Printing FAQs

What is 3D printing?

3D printing, aka. additive manufacturing, is prototyping process in which a real object is created from a digital design.

How much does it cost?

The short answer is: “it depends”. The cost is comprised of 3 parts: the amount of materials consumed, total print time and the labor. Man-hours will be charged on an hourly basis and vary from project to project, depending on the quality of the digital model and the amount of post-processing work needed.

How long does it take?

Print time is a combination of a number of factors, but is primarily dictated by the vertical dimension of the part. A general rule of thumb is about an inch per hour but this is only a guideline and can vary from part to part.

How many colors can you print?

The printers use HP inkjet printheads to distribute the colored binder, allowing more than 6 million printable colors at a resolution of 600 x 540 dpi.

What is the largest model you can print?

Our printers have a maximum build size of 10 x 15 x 8 inches with a minimum feature size of 0.004 inches. In practice, we’ve found that parts that are less than 1/8 inch thick require special handling during the manufacturing process. If you need a larger model, we can construct it in pieces and assemble it with mechanical fasteners.

What is it made of?

Our models are made primarily of calcium sulfate, similar to gypsum wallboard or Plaster of Paris. The dry powder is bound during the printing process with colored ink and then treated with an infiltrant to increase the strength of the part, making it more resistant to moisture.
