Frequently Asked Questions
Which type of file can we print?
The parts and models must be sent in STL format, which is a standard format for 3D printing. The most of the programs can export any model to a stl file.
Any model can be printed?
No, although 3D printing is very es muy versatile, there are models that can't be printed for different reasons. The main features to take into account:
- The model must be a closed mesh, as opened mesh or several mesh together the programs can have troubles to identify which areas are inner or outside areas.
- The geometry of the model must be valid; hanging areas, called "bridges", and areas which have hanging material must be minimized.
- Thin walls should have a minimum of 0.8mm of thickness in order to allow the extruder to print a minimum of two lines. Thinner walls may become irregular and/or fragile.
We will inform if the model has any error or complication; and also if it is printable.
This service doesn't include any modification in the models, the models must be sent ready to be 3D printed.
