3D printed custom hardware
3D printing allows printing a variety of complex metal parts - everything from carabiners and rivets to eyelets - in less time and at less cost than traditional manufacturing.
In order to 3D print a custom hardware piece, it is first necessary to have a digital 3D model of the desired item. This model can be created by using any number of software programs, but it must be in a format that can be read by the 3D printer. Once the model is complete, it can be printed out using a compatible 3D printer.
Custom hardware can also be created through a process called casting. This involves creating a mold of the desired accessory, and then pouring molten metal or plastic into the mold. Once the material has cooled and hardened, it can be removed from the mold and finished as desired. Casting provides a versatile and affordable way to create custom hardware.
Engraving is a great way to add a personal touch to pre-existing pieces and make them your own. Whether you want to add your logo to a pre-existing piece or create a custom logo plate, engraving provides a unique and stylish way to showcase your brand.
