  We recently acquired the next generation Stratasys Fortus 900mc, a robust FDM production 3D printer built for functional prototyping, manufacturing aids, tooling and short-run direct digital manufacturing. This addition has expanded our 3D printing services department by increasing our capacity to print large scale parts and larger volume projects. This means you now have the option to print parts in the newly released Nylon 6 engineering-grade thermoplastic. FDM Nylon 6 offers the best combination of strength and toughness among current Stratasys FDM materials. It enables creation of functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts with high impact and tensile strength. Are you ready to get a quote for your next 3D printing project? It couldn’t be easier. Just email us your CAD file (a solid from SolidWorks, Solidedge, Inventor, CATIA, Pro E, STEP, SAT or IGES) along with your phone number and one of our representatives will contact you with a quote.

Top Factors that Affect 3D Printing Price

By | 2016-12-15T14:31:02+00:00 January 29th, 2016|3D Printing / Additive Mfg, Services|0 Comments

We often receive questions regarding 3D printing. Most often people want to know what determines the price of 3D printing services? Part size and geometry understandably affect price, but there are other details that can alter the price of your parts. The following factors will impact the price of printing your 3D part. Material We charge based on the amount of material that’s needed to build your part and what material you choose. Material cost is associated with the mechanical properties as well as ease and speed of manufacturing. If you’re looking for the most cost effective material, a simple prototyping photopolymer would probably be the best option; if you have more functional requirements, you may need a higher strength material which could be more expensive. The amount of support material on your design can also affect the price. Optimizing your design with self-supporting angles (usually around 45 degrees or more) uses less support material and can help reduce material expenses. Layer Height Layer height is the measure of each layer of a 3D printed part. Depending on the technology, a thinner layer height can reduce visible “stair-stepping” or the inherent ridges on the surface of 3D printed parts and improve the surface quality and definition of the part, but can create a higher price because of the increased overall build time as a result of either the print head moving back and forth more times or having to deposit more layers of powder. You have the option of choosing the best layer height for your application within our quoting system. Wall Thickness Wall thickness affects the minimum layer height for your part which, as mentioned above, affects quote price. Various materials have unique minimum wall thickness requirements based on the 3D printing process and mechanical properties. Thinner walls can lower the build time therefore lower costs, but too thin could mean flimsy features, holes, gaps, and missing pieces. Your main considerations should be geometry and part application when choosing wall thickness. Sparse- or Solid-Fill If you have an enclosed part, like a cube for example, it can be filled solid or Stereolithography and Fused Deposition Modeling allow you to build with a custom interior density using air gaps between the exterior walls. This build technique, called ID-Light, uses less material and is faster, resulting in a lower price compared to a solid-fill, however it can slightly affect overall part strength. We recommend working with a project engineer on these applications. Labor Labor costs depend on your part requirements, the 3D printing process, and the material you order. Metal parts built with DMLS, for instance, must be machined off of the platform, adding more hands-on labor time into the process. If your part requires a smooth surface or coatings, the price will likely be higher than a raw part only requiring support removal. Lead Time Time can play a big role in the cost of a part. If you need a part right away, we have to make space for [...]
