About 3D Printing

So, you’ve read about our 3D printed accessories and you love the idea of designing your own piece of awesomeness...but you’re just not sure what your finished piece will look like and how 3D printing works exactly. We hear ya!


About 3D Printing

3D printing provides a newfound freedom of creation. We make it easy to design and create with 3D printing, but if you’d like to know the techiness that goes on behind the scenes, allow us to explain! Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model.

3D printing is achieved using additive processes, where an object is created by laying down successive layers of material. 3D printing is considered distinct from traditional machining techniques (subtractive processes) which mostly rely on the removal of material by drilling, cutting etc.

 

Together with on-demand production that is typical for 3D printing, it makes it a zero waste process. Zazzy uses industrial printers that offer an extremely high level of quality and because we believe in great products, we finish each piece by hand using high-quality assembly materials and slick packaging.

 

We’re at the cutting edge of 3D printed accessories and as such, we’re used to creative peeps like yourself wondering about the quality, look and feel of our printed metals and nylons. At the moment, we offer three materials that each has its unique production method, look and feel.

 

Below you’ll find a description of each of the materials available to help you on your design adventure (Yes, we’re showing off a little, but we’re super proud of the materials and the glowing feedback they receive from designers and customers!).

Go ahead and have a look on the individual material pages:

It looks amazing!
