FDM Colors

What's great about our FDM 3D printing service?

Our FDM 3D printing service is a great choice for lower detailed models when you’re on a budget. FDM stands for fused deposition modelling. Our max print size is 350mm L x 350mm W x 350mm H. We offer PLA plastic, which is strong, cheap and biodegradable.

01

CHEAP

We charge just £4/hour to print using our FDM 3D printers. So if your design takes 4 hour to print, then it costs just £16

02

STRONG

We use PLA plastic with our FDM printers. PLA plastic is strong and stiff and light weight. Parts with a wall thickness of over 2mm are almost impossible to break with your hands max force

03

Density control

Our software allows us to control the degree infill, (0% is totally hollow, 100% is totally solid). We usually print at 20-30% infill as its nearly at full strength at 35% infill, so any extra infill only adds weight and cost to the print

04

glossy finish

PLA plastic has a beautifully glossy surface. The smaller the layer thickness the smoother and glossier the surface becomes

Frequently Asked Questions

Below covers various popular questions we receive, its generally information regarding pricing, lead times material specifics and so on. This only covers some information on our 3d printing service so if you have any questions remaining don’t hesitate to contact us.

It depends on 4 main factors in order of importance; size, material, layer height and  lead time. We offer FDM and resin printing, generally speaking resin is about 3-4 times the cost of FDM.

We have 2 lead time options. The fastest is 1 day and the cutoff time is 2pm. the 1 day working day service costs 35% more than our standard 3-day lead time. Delivery adds 1 day. We will print standard lead time order faster than 3 days if possible but with no guarantee. For orders of £300+ the 1-day service might not be available. If it’s not, we’ll inform you immediately. 

Working days and hours are Monday to Friday 8:30am-5pm. 

We can yes, if you send your STL file via email specifying how tall you would like it to be we’ll rescale and send back to you same day. Alternatively, you can save the money by download meshmixer and rescaling it yourself.

First you would need to have the 3D model created on a computer using the real object. Our 3D printing service does not provide 3D scanning or a 3D CAD modelling.

We don’t provide 3d scanning sorry to say

It largely depends on the wall thickness. Parts with wall thickness greater than 20mm thick can easily withstand a person’s weight. If you know the forces your part will experience and in what direction, let us know and we will suggest the best print orientation and settings to maximize strength.

Our ordering system accepts STL, OBJ, STEP, IGES & 3MF. STL files are the primary 3d printing file format so thats always the best format to default to.

our 3d printing service has a £25 minimum order fee however we will manually remove that fee for just your first order.

Its £3.95 for royal mail Tracked 24. Tracked 24 takes 1-2 working day (mon-fri). Or for special delivery (1 working day) its £7

Our ordering system does catch basically all potential printing issues but for a final human confirmation please instead of paying for your order right away, click ‘submit for review’ at the end of the checkout process. We will review the files within the hour (mon-fri 9-5pm). Once confirmed we’ll send you back a payment link.

This is nearly always because the mesh is non-manifold, meaning it has too many overlapping surfaces. This confuses the software as its not able to distinguish which surfaces are closed and open. If you email us the files we’ll manually review it and in some cases we can even repair it.

This means that your model has walls thinner than the minimum we can guarantee. We guarantee parts above 0.9mm in thickness. We will print things thinner, but it is at your own risk. Thin areas of your model that fall below our minimum thickness may not print. The best case is the thin areas do print, in many cases the entire model prints fine except for the thin areas & in the worst cases the thin areas fail to print, then causing the entire model to fail.

Our SLA resin is a great choice for highly detailed models, whereas FDM is more appropriate for applications where cost is primary concern. Get in touch anytime to discuss your requirements.

Support structures are essential when 3d printing models with overhangs. They create platforms for the print to support itself. After printing All accessible supports are manually removed. If your design is free of overhangs, it won’t require supports at all.

For resin 3d printed parts its 156mm x 278mm x 295mm and for FDM printed parts its 350mm x 350mm x 350mm.

No problem, if you email us the size of the print and which service you’d like, well reply with a estimate same day.

Yes, for orders over £500 a automatic 10% discount kicks in on the pricing/ordering system.
