What is 3D printing?

3D printing is a manufacturing process that creates a physical object from a digital model by adding material layer by layer until the final product is complete.

 

What materials can be used for 3D printing?

There are a variety of materials that can be used for 3D printing, including plastics, metals, resins, and even food. The specific materials that can be used depend on the type of 3D printer being used.

 

What kind of 3D printers do you have?

We have a range of 3D printers that can print in a variety of materials and sizes. Our printers include FDM (fused deposition modeling) printers, SLA (stereolithography) printers

 

Can you help me design my 3D print?

Yes, we offer design services to help you create a 3D model of your idea. We can work with you to create a model from scratch or modify an existing design to meet your needs.

 

How long does it take to 3D print an object?

The time it takes to 3D print an object depends on the size and complexity of the design, as well as the type of material being used. Generally, a small object can be printed in a few hours, while larger objects may take several days.

 

What file formats do you accept for 3D printing?

We accept a variety of file formats for 3D printing, including .STL, .OBJ, .STEP, .IGES, If you have a different file format, please contact us to see if we can work with it.

 

Can you 3D print multiple copies of the same object?

Yes, we can print multiple copies of the same object. The cost and time required for printing multiple copies will depend on the size and complexity of the design, as well as the number of copies needed. We also have an FDM printer powered by 3DQue VAAPR bed and algorithm for batch printing.

What is the maximum size of object that can be 3D printed?

The maximum size of an object that can be 3D printed depends on the size of the 3D printer being used. Our FDM printers can print objects up to 245mm x 245mm x 260mm. our SLA printers can print objects up

192mm x 120mm x 245

mm

How do I place an order for a 3D print?

You can place an order for a 3D print by sending us your 3D model file and specifying the material and size you would like your print to be. We will then provide you with a quote and estimated timeline for completion.

What is CAD?

CAD (Computer-Aided Design) is the use of computer software to create detailed 2D or 3D models of a product, building, or mechanical device.

 

What CAD software do you use?

We use a variety of CAD software, including AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, Fusion 360. The software we use depends on the specific needs of the project.

 

What CAD services do you offer?

We offer a range of CAD services, including 2D drafting, 3D modeling, design development, prototyping.

 

How do I send my files to you for CAD services?

You can send us your files via email. If your files are too large to send via email, we can provide you with a Google drive link to upload them

 

Can you work with existing CAD files?

Yes, we can work with existing CAD files and modify them as needed to meet your requirements.

 

How long does it take to complete a CAD project?

The time it takes to complete a CAD project depends on the complexity of the design and the specific services required. We will provide you with a timeline and estimated completion date before starting the project.

 

How do you ensure accuracy in your CAD designs?

We have an ADDA CAD professional who follows strict ANSI procedures to ensure accuracy in our designs. We also use software tools to check for errors and inconsistencies.

 

What if I need changes made to my CAD design?

We understand that changes may need to be made to the design during the design process. We will work with you to make any necessary changes and provide you with updated design files.

 

Do you offer prototyping services?

Yes, we offer prototyping services to create physical models of your CAD design. We use 3D printing to create prototypes. We can also do batch printing for multiple variations of the design for optimization purposes.

 

How do I get a quote for CAD services?

You can contact us via email or phone to request a quote for CAD services. We will ask for details about the project and provide you with a quote based on the services needed.
