Tsinling Mountains are renowned as “the dragon vein of Chinese civilization”. Given its graceful shape and unique contextual meaning, the image and elements of Tsinling are frequently used in the poems, songs and handicrafts, turning into the symbol of Chinese civilization. BLT uses metal 3D printing technology to print the desktop ornament of Tsinling Mountains with unique and artistic structure, showing the combination of modern technology and cultural art.
BLT desktop ornaments of Tsinling Mountains have a precise structure and are composed of upper and lower parts. The base, adopting a lattice structure, is formed by superposing countless cubes. Each cube is constructed by taking the geometric center as the origin and moving towards the eight vertices. Such structure is advantageous in that it provides stability and reduces the weight of the product.
The mountain range of the desktop ornament adopts a mesh-like braided structure, and each braid point corresponds to the center point of the underlying cube, ensuring the structure looks neat and the overall shape of the ornament keeps stable. At the same time, the braided structure consists of beautiful lines, vividly imitating the undulating trend of the mountains, which is quite ornamental.
When manufacturing such ornaments in traditional procedures, it is necessary to split the 3D model into multiple components and then assemble them one by one, which takes much time and is difficult to achieve the aesthetic shape. In addition, the braided structure and lattice structure of Tsinling desktop ornaments put high requirements on precision, which is difficult to manufacture for traditional procedures and may cause much wastage.
Metal 3D printing technology can be used to solve the above problems. Metal 3D printing technology has great advantages in forming complex structures, which meets the needs of free design of Tsinling desktop ornaments. Besides, metal 3D printing realizes the integrated forming of the structure, shortens the manufacturing time, saves materials, reduces the weight and cost of ornaments, and fully demonstrates the characteristics of 3D metal printing, i.e. “Make Freer Design, Make Easier Manufacturing”.
Tsinling desktop ornaments are printed by BLT-S210 which is equipped with fine light spots. Its high laser power and high beam quality caters to the requirements for precision when forming this ornament.
