FAQ's

Question

Are my files treated confidentially?

Answer

Yes. Knowing that you probably spent considerable time on your design, we treat it with confidentiality. We do not publish or photo of your design, nor make the design available for everyone, without your permission. The uploaded models cannot be downloaded by anyone but us.

Question

How does the process work?

Answer

3D printing works by converting a 3D digital design into thin cross sections that are determined by the 3D printer software. This information is then sent to the machine where it starts to deposit material layer by layer, one above the other, thus creating a 3-Dimensional object. This process is called "Additive Layer Manufacturing".

Question

What are the automatic support structures?

Answer

While the printer is laying the model down onto the heated platform, the printer, using the same extrusion head lays down low density support structures. If you imagine printing a standing up letter “T”, it would require supports to be layered all the way up to the top, so the 3D printer has a base to print the crossbar.

Question

What is 3D scanning?

Answer

3D scanning is a process which involves taking a physical object and accurately measuring it. The scan data is made up of millions of points which together form a point cloud of the object on screen. This point cloud can then be used to traditionally either inspect or reverse engineer the part.

Question

What’s great about PLA Filament?

Answer

PLA Filament is the perfect source material for making detailed, beautiful, professional-quality models and final products. Our materials research department has put countless hours into developing reliable filament that sticks to the platform without peeling, cracking, or curling. Even better, PLA Filament is highly reliable, even without a heated platform, saving you 32% in energy costs and comes in a variety of colours.

Question

Why use 3D Printing?

Answer

The reasons for using a 3D printer is that you can create a 3D model of your Computer Aided Design without the need for tooling or specialist programming skills. You can choose from a variety of materials, and different resolutions to suit your application.
