What is 3D Printing?

3D Printing is the action or process of making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model, by laying down many thin layers of material in succession.

What kind of process do we use?

We use Fused deposition modeling (FDM), also known as fused filament fabrication (FFF), is the most widely used type of 3D printing at the consumer level. FDM 3D printers work by extruding thermoplastic filaments, such as ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), PLA (Polylactic Acid), through a heated nozzle, melting the material and applying the plastic layer by layer to a build platform. Each layer is laid down one at a time until the part is complete.

How long does it take to print?

The time it takes a model to print is dependent on many factors like: speed, supports, infill and overall size. Most of 3D Print Labs models print in less than a day, and as little 10-minutes

What kinds of things can be printer?

Just about anything can be printed using a 3D printer. Naturally, toys and trinkets can be printed. Tools, gadgets, utilities and whatever you can think of can be printed.

I want an item that you don't have listed.

Do not worry, just send an email to request@3dprintlabsusa.com. If you don’t have a print file, we’ll look for one. If we can’t find one, we’ll look at designing a print file.

How many colors can you print?

Any color. There are so many colors and variants it’s hard to keep them all in stock. Just like requesting a certain print, send an email to request@3dprintlabsusa.com, and we’ll find your color.
