The Instant Quote form allows you to enter different variables and calculate the cost of 3D prints before purchasing or entering any personal information. You can play with all the variables and see what the 3D print will cost prior to committing to anything. Once you are ready, you can upload your file and order your 3D print. It's that easy.
Here are specific instruction for each of the fields:
Choose a material and color from the dropdown list. If you're not sure, PLA is the recommended choice for most jobs. Check our Materials page for more information.
Required. Volume of part is in cubic centimeters, (cc, or cm3). Can be obtained from your CAD software, or by opening your STL file in the free program Netfabb.
The number of copies you want to order. Default is one.
Resolution refers to the layer height. Higher resolution gives a smoother model with finer detail but costs more since it takes longer to print.
0.3mm (Normal) is good for all large parts and prototypes. 0.2mm (Fine) is the best choice for small parts and finished pieces. Do not choose 0.1mm (Extra Fine) unless your part is very small.
Infill is the material used to fill the empty space inside the shell of an object, it refers to the density. Normally, you would not need to go for maximum fill of a 3D model. A special pattern is used to create a strong and durable inside support structure. 20% infill is usually more than enough for normal use.
Choose Standard, Priority, or Express shipping. Be sure to choose Domestic for U.S. purchasers, or International if you are out of the United States.
