3D Printed Bracket Cover Parts


Process – Start to Finish

Briefly, the 3d printed convex bracket covers parts contains screw holes and a protective contoured shell with a minimum wall thickness.
However, the wide selection of potential 3d printed replaceable components with the aid of 3d printers increases 3d printing versatility.
Likewise, 3D printing technology is a fast growing industry.
Consequently, assessing the right specifications for a print is also crucial for quality/objective purposes.

This project involves 3d modelled and 3D printed bracket cover parts.
Samples were redrawn within an hour using CAD 3D model software.
The samples were half-broken therefore missing geometry was an issue.
We requested the broken samples to be sent on the basis of an estimate quote.
The parts were located 700km away from our office.


Furthermore, the design requires approval by the client via image preview.
Then, the 3D model is loaded onto 3D printing slicing software coupled with an available printer.
Equally important is the turnaround time in such a scenario which takes three working days.
A 3D model copy is provided on completion with steps on opening and visually accessing the file.
This repetitive iterative process is frequent irrespective of the project size, knowledge field or complexity.

Part Optimization


Most 3D printing services use a standard thickness of about 1.0 – 1.5 mm, but increasing this setting can greatly increase the tensile strength and impact strength of your parts.
Thickness refers to the thickness of the outer surfaces of the part.
Structural optimization is an important aspect to consider in the case of 3d printed parts.
When ordering 3D printed parts, it is critical to specify an infill percentage.
Another lesser known setting, the shell thickness, also plays a significant role in part strength.


Even if 3D printing for prototypes fits end use applications, there are many factors that require attention to ensure parts are strong enough for the required application.
It’s important to consider tensile or compressive forces that parts will undergo when selecting a suitable material.
We generally use PETG with a high infill and shell thickness to ensure parts are up to the job.
