What is the biggest size part you can print?
We can print parts up to 8x8x12 inches or 203x203x305 millimeters.
How much does it cost?
Rapid Prototypes or 3D printed parts vary in price. A 1x1x1" part should may cost $50 whereas a 5x6x5 part may cost $400. In order to get an accurate price please complete our RFQ form and send your .stl file.
Why do we need .stl files?
We specifically do not need .stl files from the customer; however, we must be able to convert the CAD files into .stl files so that our software can generate how the part is to be printed. Most CAD software has a "save as" feature which allows you to save the part as different file types and usually include .stl files.
What is .stl resolution?
In your CAD software you should have a feature to lower or raise your .stl "save as" resolution. For example in Autodesk Inventor when you open the save as window and click on options; you have three resolution options when saving to an .stl file. These options are low, medium, and high. Generally the higher the resolution the better your part will be. For example when saving to a lower resolution a circular object may appear to be made up of many straight lines. These lines should dissappear when you save your .stl file to a higher resolution. This webpage is a helpful resource.
