Get 3D Printed Parts Fast With S&W’s Precision Specialties Division

3D printing has made it possible for companies to expand their abilities to develop innovative products. The technology can take some time to master, and that’s where S&W Race Cars can help other performance companies with its S&W Precision Specialties business. This side of S&W can create accurate 3D printed prototypes and other items that can be used in a variety of applications.

There are a few different types of 3D printers you can use to create parts — S&W uses an FDM-style 3D printer. These heat a plastic filament and then extrude it through a nozzle on the print head. The plastic is laid down in different layers to create a 3D print. The files that are used to create a 3D printed object are made in a CAD type of program.

Since S&W’s team does so much work creating products, bringing 3D printing into its workflow was an easy choice to make. S&W Precision Specialties can 3D print prototypes that are functional, that can be used to create castings, for fiberglass molds, or just about anything else you can think of. The layer height tolerance is very important, and S&W Precision Specialties uses a tolerance of .002-inch for prints it creates for customers. S&W Precision Specialties works with all the standard plastic filament materials including PLA, PTEG, ABS, and even carbon-fiber.

If you need something 3D printed for a racecar project or need a prototype created for manufacturing, make sure you reach out to S&W Precision Specialties via the S&W website right here.
