3D printer can bring a lower cost for PCB production

What’s 3D printing?
3D printing is an advanced technology used to create three-dimensional objects. As opposed to traditional industrial manufacturing, it does not require molds or equipping large production lines. Simply put, 3D printing involves building objects on a machine by stacking materials layer by layer based on a computer-generated three-dimensional model. 3d printing pcb boards

3D printing is usually realized using digital technology material printers. Often mold making, industrial design, and other fields are used to make models, and then gradually used in the direct manufacture of some products, there have been parts printed using this technology. The technology is used in jewelry, footwear, industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education, geographic information systems (GIS), civil engineering, firearms, and other applications. 3d printing pcb boards

How to combine 3D printing technology with PCB board production?
3D printing has revolutionized the manufacturing industry by creating structures in just a few minutes (which would take days if created through traditional production and manufacturing methods). Printed circuit boards are a major component of electronics and drive the world towards automation and digitization used in conjunction with 3D printing, printed circuit boards (PCBs) create the perfect impetus for modern economic and technological growth.
The two main methods of creating 3D-printed circuit boards are:
-Conductive filament
-Hollow strokes

There are already 3D printers that can create PCBs, but their progress in creating small circuit boards is not very high.

According to a related report:
At a technology seminar held in Silicon Valley and organized by market research firm IDTechEx, two companies demonstrated 3D printers that can “spit out” small circuit boards, while others, such as Qualcomm, showed advances in placing electronic parts on plastic substrates.

DragonFly 2020 3D printer from the Israeli start-up Nano Dimension debuted in the United States, the device can produce 20cm square, height of about 3mm, a trace width of only 80 microns (micron) multilayer circuit boards, depending on the number of layers of different, the time required is only 3 to 20 hours.

3D printer production PCB technology is constantly optimizing the development, in terms of precision and requirements will be more and more refined. Currently, PCB production still depends on professional PCB manufacturing factories, and OPCBA can provide you with all the services you need. 3d printing pcb boards
