UPDATE! We’ve changed how our clips are made to make them stronger and more durable!
Clips for any Guard will only come in BLACK (regardless of what is pictured).
Did something happen to your original set of clips for your Full Guard or Half Guard? Did you buy a Guard and add on the additional panel and now want to use that panel on a different LR and need a set of clips? Fear no more, you can now order a replacement set of clips!
- Included is a complete set of clips (one each left and right top brackets, two bottom brackets and two back wings)
- Included is a complete screw set (two black or silver screws and two silver nuts)
- Compatible with our Full Guard and Half Guard!
How does 3D printing work?
Every 3D printer builds parts based on the same main principle: a digital model is turned into a physical three-dimensional object by adding material a layer at a time. This where the alternative term Additive Manufacturing comes from.
3D printing is a fundamentally different way of producing parts compared to traditional subtractive (CNC machining) or formative (Injection molding) manufacturing technologies.
In 3D printing, no special tools are required (for example, a cutting tool with certain geometry or a mold). Instead the part is manufactured directly onto the built platform layer-by-layer, which leads to a unique set of benefits and limitations
From here, the way a 3D printer works varies by process. For example, desktop FDM printers melt plastic filaments and lay it down onto the print platform through a nozzle (like a high-precision, computer-controlled glue gun). Large industrial SLS machines use a laser to melt (or sinter) thin layers of metal or plastic powders.
The available materials also vary by process. Plastics are by far the most common, but metals can also be 3D printed. The produced parts can also have a wide range of specific physical properties, ranging from optically clear to rubber-like objects.
Depending on the size of the part and the type of printer, a print usually takes about 4 to 18 hours to complete. 3D printed parts are rarely ready-to-use out of the machine though. They often require some post-processing to achieve the desired level of surface finish. These steps take additional time and (usually manual) effort.
