Step1 - Send us your idea or file
3D printing uses a digital computer file. Usually created from a computer design package (Fusion 360, Solid Works). There are also a few free websites where these digital files can be downloaded and sent to us via email - www.thingiverse.com
You can also provide us with a drawing and measurements. Using this we can design your desired part on one of our computer design packages.
Step 2 - We use your digital file in a slicer package to quote you
Once we have received your stl or obj file, we can then run the part in one of our 3d printing slicer packages (Simplify 360, Repetetier-Host Software). These programs tell us the amount of material to be used, as well as the amount of time it would take to print. We use this information to provide you with a quotation to satisfy your budget. Each print can be uniquely modified by changing the density (infill) of the print and using a design package. We charge R10.00 /meter of filament used depending on the quantity.
3 Examples showing the infill percentage of a 3d print: 10% / 40% / 90%
Step 3 - Starting the printing process
You receive a quote, with your approval and deposit we can start with your print/s. The printing process is not that easy to begin with and takes some time, especially if we are printing new designs every day, therefore, a 50% deposit would be required.
Step 4 - You receive your 3d print/s
Once your print/s has been completed, we will courier it to you anywhere around the world!
