3D printers in general require 3D CAD model of your project that needs to be loaded into the printer’s software. If you do not have a 3D CAD model our team can help you create one through our other services:
- 3D Scanning
- 3D CAD modeling from 2D sketch
Please take a closer look at the corresponding sections if you need such type of a service first.
SolidFill does not impose a restrictions on the type of input files. We accept almost all types of CAD files: PLY, OFF, OBJ, 3DS, COLLADA, PTX, V3D, PTS, APTS, XYZ, GTS, TRI, ASC, X3D, X3DV, VRML, ALN that we later convert to one universal type that most of the hardware work with – STL. If your model is bigger than the build size of our machines we will take care to cut it in parts which can be glued or assembled later.
We will take a look at your project’s properties and needs and we will advise you which of the available technologies suits best your prototype. The STL files of your project is then printed through our 3D printers and in the matter of a few hours it is given an actual physical form that you can touch and evaluate.
Your object will be created using polymers (plastics) – the most common materials we work with are:
- PLA (approved for applications in food and beverage)
- PET (approved for applications in food and beverage)
- FPLA (flexible rubber-like plastic material)
Prices of this service depends on the complexity and size of the object you would like to 3D model and the material preferences or requirements. The price formation is based on the volume of material used for a cubic centimeter of the object. The printer’s software calculates the volume of the material that will be used based on settings created especially for your prototype such as overall density, density of the perimeters, support material, etc. The basic price rate 0,75EUR/cm3, but it may vary.
