What is key chain 3D printing?

3D Printing is a process for making a key chain from a three-dimensional digital model, typically by laying down many successive thin layers of material.

First, the software is used to slice the 3D key chain design into layers, and then the key chain is printed layer by layer on a 3D printer. Because each key chain is built up uniquely, 3D printing is great if a designer want to make a unique and customized key chain or small series of objects.

How does key chain 3D Printing work?

A 3D printer works like a 2D printer in the same way that the 2D printer prints a 2D key chain drawing on paper. 2D printer uses liquid ink, the 3D printer 'prints' a 3D key chain in successive layers using the 'filament' from a design drawn in CAD software.

Why do designers choose 3D printing for key chains?

3D printing brings many advantages that the traditional process of manufacture simply cannot.


Using 3D printing processes, the designer could customize the key chain, and meet individual needs and requirements.


Using 3D printing processes, the designer could produce a complicated key chain that simply could not be produced physically in any other way. This advantage makes the key chain with a great impressive visual effect.

Cost less

Using 3D printing processes, the designer could save a lot of time, labor, and investment.


3D printing is an energy-efficient technology and material-saving technology. It could use up to 90% of standard materials.

What are the popular materials for key chain 3D printing?

There are many different sorts of materials available for key chain 3D printing, but the widest used are nylon, ABS, and stainless steel.

Nylon is strong, flexible, and durable plastic, it is a reliable material for key chain 3D printing. It is white, but can be colored before or later printing.

ABS is another common plastic used for key chain 3D printing and is widely used at the entry level. It comes in a wide range of colors.

Stainless Steel in powder form is the most commonly used metal for key chain 3D printing. It is in silver color but can be plated later.
