Rapid prototyping turn designers idea into real product. It can examine the appearance and structure of the product, Make one or several pieces product first according product Appearance drawing or Structural drawing without being opened the mold.

Advantages of CNC machining of acrylic (PMMA) rapid prototyping:

General machine processing can not solve complex parts of automatic processing problems. CNC machining has strong adaptability, high machining precision, high production efficiency, is conducive to the production management of modern features, When used in rapid prototyping, the prototype can very accurately reflect the drawing expression information, and save money, the surface quality is very high, and improves the efficiency of production circle.

Rapid prototyping materials are widely and diversity, The main material of SLA laser rapid prototyping is photosensitive resin. In vacuum injection molding, the silica gel die is used in the replication method. The material of CNC machining is divided into two kinds: metal and non-metal. Non metal mainly refers to some engineering materials, such as: ABS, PC, PP, POM, PA, PMMA (acrylic), bakelite and wood etc.

Acrylic (PMMA) translate by English Acrylics transliteration, Acrylic plate by methyl methacrylate monomer (MMA) polymerization, That is polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) plate plexiglass. Acrylic has high transparent (light transmittance of 92%), and excellent weather resistance, and have both good surface hardness and gloss, The processing plasticity is great. Usually make rapid prototyping, PMMA is suitable for car lights, lenses and other highly transparent rapid prototyping.
