Available Materials

Our printers use Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), and can print in the following materials:

  • PLA - Low cost Prototypes. A great choice for non-functional parts with high levels of detail. Cannot withstand temperatures above 115 F and does not sand well.  Semi-glossy appearance

  • ABS - Functional Prototypes. A great choice for high temperature applications or functional parts.  Can be smoothed with acetone vapor, and sands well.  Non-glossy appearance.
     
  • PETG - High-Stress Functional Prototypes. Stronger than ABS, but does not do well with finer details. It can withstand temperatures up to 150 F, and is difficult to sand. Very glossy appearance
  • TPU - Flexible, rubber like Filament.

    Maximum Part Size

    Our printers can produce parts that fit in a 500 mm cube.  Lead time may increase for larger prints due to time required to print, and availability of the larger printers.  We will provide a time estimate before you order.

    We calculate all pricing based on the quote provided by the instant order tool.  All  quoted prices are based on the following print settings:

    • 25% infill

    Quality Standards

    All parts we provide meet or exceed the following guidelines

    • Accurate - Greater of 0.5% or 0.25 mm

    • Consistent surface - No marks on print, other than minimal retraction marks or a small seam.
    • No warping or delamination
    • Support material removed. traces of support may be present on supported surfaces

    If you receive a part that fails to meet these standards, we will provide a full refund upon return of the part, a 50% refund without return of the part, or we can provide a reprint at no additional charge.

    If you have more specific requirements, please let us know when you place an order and we can discuss if we can meet them.
