Pricing is based on the material used: $.15/gram with a minimum charge of $3.00. We calculate the cost before running your job.
The maximum build size is 12"x12"x12". Several small pieces can be batch printed. Consider printing a larger job in several pieces and gluing them together.
We will be happy to discuss options for obtaining your preferred result, balancing cost, time, and quality for each job you print. Options include:
Raft.. Required for all jobs. Otherwise, spaghetti happens! (below left)
Supports. May be necessary or recommended to support overgrowth. Extruding material onto thin air will result in a fail!
Infill. The infill rate inside an object can be altered. Consider strength, flexibility, and cost when changing the default. (above right)
Resolution. Low res jobs print fastest but with the least detail. High res jobs may take twice as long as low or standard res, and they may be much more delicate.
Q. How can I color my object?
A. Nail polish is cheap, available in a wide range of colors and textures, and each color has its own brush! Acrylic and model paints should work.
Q. What glue should I use to combine or repair parts?
Q. Are pieces waterproof? How can I protect the surface?
A. Some printed pieces seem to be waterproof and some don't. Use a waterproofing agent if needed. Consider using XTC-3D (an epoxy coating) for smoothing and finishing.
