Would you like to 3D print a non-planar printed circuit board? Turn your invention into reality with nano3Dprint’s the MatDep Pro or A2200 3D Multi-material Electronics Printer. These cutting-edge direct-write systems allows you to produce non-planar PCBs with the materials of your choice and even embed your PCB into larger 3D printed electronic devices.
3D Printing a Non-Planer PCB with Direct-Write Technology
The nano3Dprint engineering team used the A2200 to produce a non-planar PCB made from silver paste and PLA. The A2200 features an FDM extruder next to a materials dispensing system, so it can incorporate conductive silver paste and other functional materials into a 3D print.
With the A2200, you can 3D print your PCB to be any shape and height, as long as it fits the system’s build volume, which is 214x186x160mm. Direct-write is ideal for producing tiny electronics because it allows you to print the wires directly into your design. We used silver paste for this PCB, but many nano3Dprint customers use gold and copper conductive inks and pastes. You can also 3D print your PCB directly into a larger electronic device. Embedding circuitry directly into the final product allows you to achieve more complex and conformal features.
Expand Your Range of Electronics 3D Printing Materials
nano3Dprint’s MatDep Pro and A2200’s material dispensing systems can handle Functional Pastes and Inks, Conductive Paints, Fast Drying Solvent Based Inks, Silver Nano-Particle Inks, Graphene Solutions, and more. It precisely meters functional inks with viscosities ranging from 1mPa·s to 54000 mPa·s. Higher viscosity inks are important because they produce more conductive traces, and can only be printed via direct-write technology.
The FDM Extruder on the MatDep Pro and A2200 can use ABS, PETG, POM,, Nylon (PA), PC, Conductive filament, Carbon Fiber filament, Dissolvable filament (PVA, HIPS), Flexible filament (TPU, PLA+), and beyond. The combination of FDM and functional inks and pastes gives you endless design possibilities.
