Is our online 3D printing service right for your 3D model?

3D printed models are used for a large variety of purposes. Our 3D printing process SLA, or more technically correct top-down DLP, does deliver large parts in a hard thermoset plastic. Because we print in large layer thickness of 0.3mm, the surface quality directly out of the printer is somewhat rough.

Typical applications for our 3D models are: visual prototyping of large parts, arts, positives for (traditional) tool making, plugs and demo’s. Our 3D printing service focuses on 3D models made for companies. You should contact us for products larger than 10 cm (about 4 inch).

In general, the 3D models we supply through Moulds and Models are not supposed to be structural parts. If you require structural parts to be made, please contact Fiberneering (our mother company).

Do you have the 3D model design complete?

It is important for our 3D printing service to have a good 3D design of the part you want to print. If you only have a pencil sketch, 2D drawing or just the physical part with no engineering data, our engineers can help to get to a part model. We use a variety of techniques for this. We use our standard rates for these activities, which are presented here.

Each product is different, but to provide some indication how long it takes us to perform the following tasks (please note numbers are indications only, depending on part geometry, rather large changes may occur):
