FDM printing is a fantastic technology that has made prototyping much cheaper. FDM stands for fused deposition modeling. FDM printers use PLA or ABS plastic. PLA is strong, cheap and has a glossy finish.
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
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
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
PLA plastic has a beautifully glossy surface. The smaller the layer thickness the smoother and glossier the surface becomes
You have a 3D CAD model ready and you'd like to get an quote/lead time to 3d print it.
To get a quote send your 3D model to firstname.lastname@example.org
You dont yet have a 3D CAD model but you'd like to get an idea of printing costs. In order to generate a printing cost first you will need a CAD file made
Feel free to give us a call for any question your may have related to your project, we’d be happy to advise.
