3d Printing

We have several different models of 3D printers using filament and FDM technology. When designing prints, keep in mind that any part of a model that extends off of the base more than a 45 degree overhang will need support structures (handled by slicing software or modeled in manually). Layer height goes from .4mm height to .1mm height. This affects your 3D printing surface and is seen in the “stepping” appearance from FDM prints.

Our minimum wall thickness for prints is a suggested 1mm. Since most of our nozzles are a .5mm, we can have lines as thin as .65, however, please proceed with caution as this might result in fragile parts.
