BRINGING YOUR DESIGN IDEAS TO LIFE

3D printed leather models save time and money

3D printing has revolutionized the production of leather models for instrument panels. Powdered plastics are used with the stereolithography process (SLA) and, for certain applications, the selective laser sintering process (SLS). This eliminates the need to produce a blank and the entire milling process.

Auxiliary models can be 3D printed to use later as a basis for a galvano shell with the grain. To save even more time, the grain can also be produced by 3D printing. It can be directly incorporated into 3D printing through visual measurement and conversion into a corresponding data set.

Many of these models have already been used, including for the door panel of a current sports car. In this case, FRIMO used 3D printing to create a one-piece leather model consisting of the bolster insert, piping, and mirror area. The manufacturer's original grain was reproduced on the model's surface using the SLA process. It is even possible to create an omega groove on the leather model.

All products are customized and can be laid out according to the customer's requirements. We would love to show you your options.
