Technical informations:

If you have already had the opportunity to order 3D printing services, you can easily handle the proper preparation of the file for quotation and description of the order in the form. If your experience with additive technologies has been limited so far, we encourage you to read the following guides:

Which 3D printing technology should you choose?
What material to choose for 3D printing?
How to properly prepare a file for 3D printing in a specific technology?

If you still have doubts, please contact us by email or phone – we will try to explain everything thoroughly.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    IN WHAT FORM TO SEND A QUOTATION FILE?

    Preferably in the .STL extension. This is the most common format in 3D printing and is most often the basis for starting the implementation. Even if we calculate the project based on a different file format, we will ask you to provide the file in the .STL or related .3MF format before starting the order. If the preparation of this type of file / model is impossible, we will gladly undertake the design services.

    Other acceptable formats: .3MF .OBJ .STP.

    HOW TO GET THE FILE IN .STL FORMAT?

    Historically, the .STL format was created in 1984 and since then the vast majority of 3D design / modeling programs have the ability to export to this extension. The model saved in the .STL format is a triangle mesh that creates its geometry. There is no information about the color, material or surface roughness (unless someone designs it).

    IS 3D PRINTING FROM A PHOTO OR FLAT TECHNICAL DRAWING ACCEPTABLE?

    If you are interested in reliable valuation – the answer is “NO”. Based on photos, sketches, flat technical drawings we can only “roughly” estimate the degree of complexity of production, however, the margin of error can be up to 30% of the actual value of the order. Based on photos or illustrative drawings, we are not able to determine the exact consumption of material and the time needed for production, and these two factors are decisive in offering 3D prints.

    If you do not have a 3D model, we are happy to design it.
