HERE ARE SOME TIPS FOR YOU
QUICK DESIGN GUIDE
When designing for 3D printing always keep in mind the following guidelines:
- WALL THICKNESS at least 1 mm.
- CLEARANCES at least 0.25 mm.
- PINS & COLUMNS minimum diameter 3 mm.
- OVERHANGS try to avoid unsupported features over 45 degrees.
- ORIENTATION when orienting your print keep in mind areas that will need support and always have a flat and large enough surface to get your model sticking on the print bed.

The material you choose will depend on how your model is going to be used. We recommend:
ABS PLASTIC for simple prototypes, clips and small casings.
ENGINEERING PLASTIC this is by far our favorite material to work with, strong and durable with a beautiful semi matte finish it's perfect for all your prototyping, showcase and end user applications.
PC ABS for the toughest applications, resistant to UV, impacts, high temperatures and chemicals, perfect for models exposed to the weather and workshop environments.
This is especially important for your final projects, don't wait for the last minute, try to get the file to us asap so we can process it and get it ready for shipping before the deadline. Remember, additive manufacturing was born for prototyping, you need to leave some room to go back to the drawing board if necessary.
