How does 3D printed Silicon Carbide hold up against other forms of Silicon Carbide?
The characteristic strength for the lower density 3D-printed material is 297 Mpa, as compared to 389 MPa for bulk Chemical Vapor Deposition SiC (CVD- SiC). However, the modulus is significantly higher for the 3D-printed material, highlighting a tighter distribution in fracture strength. The resulting material may be densified to >90% of the theoretical density of SiC and consists of original powder grains embedded in the CVI-SiC matrix.
What industries does 3Dcarbide serve?
Here are just some of the industries that currently use SiC, and will benefit from faster prototyping and free-form shapes allowed by our manufacturing process:
- Electronics and compuation
Our techniques are used to make nuclear fuel for nuclear fuel manufacturers, primarily Ultra Safe Nuclear.
How big or small can I make parts?
What file types are acceptable?
We prefer STEP and SLDPRT file formats but also accept other 3D formats such as STL. 2D drawings may also be converted to a 3D file for your review.
When can I expect to see parts?
We process orders on a first-come, first-serve basis. Lead times are provided at the time of quotation and will vary depending on the order size and complexity. Accelerated processing can be arranged. Talk to one of our engineers ASAP!
How is domestic shipping handled?
Domestic shipments would be arranged via buyer's preferred freight carrier (FCA Origin).
Can orders be shipped internationally?
Yes. International orders would be arranged ExWorks Origin.
Can 3Dcarbide sign an NDA?
How is my data protected?
After receiving your files on our dedicated machines, we will work with you to adjust the model to make it manufacturable. Your information and data will remain confidential and viewed only by our direct employees. Once the parts are delivered, we will delete the files after 60 days.
We will ask permission to use images of your produced parts in our promotional materials.
Do not send us information or models that are not owned by you or for which you lack permissions to share.
