Frequently Asked Questions

What is 3D Printing ?

We create 3D Design in CAD Software and the same file is sent to an application that recognizes the file format (STL). Application connects to the 3D Printer, 3D File will be sliced into thousands of layers and printers prints one layer at a time, the process continues until all the layers are printed. At the end of the process, you can remove physical scaled model from the printer.

Yes, definitely

What is the maximum size of 3D Print?
We can print any size and geometry by splitting the parts into pieces and join them together during post process, if the size is more than print bed size of 14” x 10” x 8”.

What are the materials used to print my 3D designs?

  • Composite powder
  • PLA and ABS

What is the thickness of each layer?
0.0035 inches - 0.01 inches.

Will the model be ready immediately after removing from the printer?
3D Prints are not ready immediately after removing from the printer. The prototype has to go through certain post processing steps

  • Drying
  • Brushing
  • Fine Brushing
  • Infiltration
