Highlights: · New, innovative production technology · 3D series production possible for the first time · Extremely delicate and detailed · Highest »Fine Scale« quality · Realistically painted · Super price-performance ratio Welcome to the Future! The NOCH Innovation 2015: 3D Printing Models in series Production Those who follow the current news in modelling magazines and who are interested in technology will have already heard of it: the 3D printing production revolution. As with the introduction of the Laser-Cut technology, NOCH is a leading light of this innovative production technology and offer these new 3D minis for the first time this year: models which set new benchmarks for detail – »Fine Scale« in series production! The 3D minis, ready assembled and realistically painted, can be directly placed on your model landscape. And the best thing for you is that you have a very favorable price-performance ratio. Test this new model series and convince yourself of the advantages of these 3D printing models. 3D Printing – This is how it works: The 3D printing features an »additive« procedure during which a plastic material is applied in layers, one upon the other, by a printhead. Thus, layer by layer an individual model is created. 3D printing offers several advantages: Contrary to injection-moulded products, the 3D models come out of the printer completely finished and thus e.g. no assembly work is necessary. In addition to this, a very high »resolution« is achieved with the 3D printing technology, so that more delicate and more detailed models can be produced compared with injection moulding technology. The innovative production procedure has been used in high-tech industries for several years already (especially in the medical and automotive sectors). The production is costly as the 3D printers as well as the material used are very expensive. In return, models with previously unheard of detail and realism can be created.
