No, the term 3D printing comes from the use of inkjet printer heads to deposit, either layers of UV-curable photopolymer resin or a binding material onto a layer of powder in a powder bed process. However, the term now universally encompasses all additive manufacturing technologies. The more technical, or correct, way of referring to the automated process of building a 3D object from scratch using a digital file is “additive manufacturing”.
We offer in-house 3D modelling services for customers who do not have a 3D digital file. There are also various websites that allow downloading of digital files for free in .stl format such thingiverse myminifactory turbosquid
The 3D digital file needs to be in .stl or .obj file format for us to proceed with 3D printing. A CAD file is a must for 3D printing.
A stereolithography (stl) file is a format that provides 3D printers the blueprint to print a part. The .stl file is created as an export option in many 3D software applications such 3D Studio Max, Maya, Google Sketchup, and Blender.
You can upload your file on this website by clicking on the Get Quote page. Alternatively you can email your .stl file to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The cost depends on the time required for the 3D printer to print the object. This would be calculated based on INR per printing hour or based on the cubic centimeter volume of the product depending on the technology applied.
The time taken to print any object depends upon the size of the object and settings set for an object. A small object with less dimensions and infills can be printed in less than an hour. 3D Printing usually takes hours, not minutes, and can vary depending on the level of detail of the .stl file and other specifications. Larger, more precise models can take significantly longer to print than the same model reduced in size and precision.
Infill is the structure printed internally in the hollow space of the object. Less dense infill percentage saves material and time, whereas higher infill density leads to stronger 3D printed objects.
There are several ways to reduce your 3D printing costs. Variables such as material, size, and infill of your print can make a huge difference in price over time, if they are optimized.
There are no restrictions in terms of print size. Prints can range from a few inches to multiple feet.
If the part is required in single piece then the largest printable size would depend on the build volume of the 3D printer. Large 3D models can be split into pieces, printed and assembled into a larger object if they don’t fit into a specific 3D printer
Yes, in certain cases such minatures, customised keychains, caketoppers etc. photos can be used to create models.
