3D PRINTING FAQS

Frequent questions

3d Printing is a modern tool available to almost all existing creative and production sectors (architecture, engineering, prototypes, medicine and dentistry, construction, plastics, ceramics, design, marketing, research, art, food, jewelry, etc.)

With the many different 3d printing techniques available today, it is difficult to answer quickly and in detail. The basic common element of all techniques is the layered material deposition, with the aim of producing a physical object from a digital 3D model/ design.

When we decide on the size, kind, material, print resolution that most of our projects will have, and depending on our budget, we choose a printer. We always keep in mind that the key to successful printing is the knowledge of the operation of the machine, and that buying an expensive machine does not imply that we will have impressive or even acceptable results from the beginning.

Today the range of desktops and professional machines is huge, ranging from $100- $500,000.

It is always necessary to use a print slicing program to slice the 3D design. Cura, Simplify3D and Slic3r are the most common.

Plastics, metals, ceramics, resins, building materials, edibles, even bio-composites.

The truth is that some materials can have prices that seem high. However, the cost of the material is negligible, given that there is no cheaper, faster and more accurate way to create a unique and complex new object than 3D Printing.

Not always. There are limitations, many of which an experienced 3D printer operator can sometimes overcome. Also different technologies and techniques can solve different construction problems. The design, however, must be structurally sound, with closed surfaces, and walls that meet the capabilities of the machine to be used.

The maximum dimensions we can print are 55x55x60cm. Larger objects can be partially printed and assembled. Also, for your business needs, we have the ability to design and manufacture a printer, on a budget and with amazing results.

Yes, we can print an object with multiple colours.

It depends on the size, resolution, fill percentage, material and difficulty of printing the item. There are no standard times, as the variables that influence the time for completion are many.
