Our Materials

EX200

Use our clear polypropylene simulant polymer for transparent parts that look and feel like real manufactured components with excellent dimensional accuracy, detail definition and toughness. Ideal for electronic enclosures, consumer goods, architectural models and moulding pattern masters. EX200 can be painted to add further realism to your model.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do your 3D printers work?

We operate a suite of high precision MJM (Multi-Jet Modelling) 3D printers. MJM is a process where a print-head deposits small droplets of object material and support wax onto a build plate. These droplets are placed precisely where they need to be to form a layer of the model. After the layer is formed the print-head rises a small amount and prints the next layer. The completed model is then placed in a solvent to remove the wax, leaving the finished object. The advantage of MJM is that it allows extremely high resolution and unrestricted geometries.

I cannot tell my models apart from just the thumbnail.

You must be logged in to you online account and be inside either the Models or Gallery page. Click on a thumbnail to open the 3D viewer which allows you to rotate the object in your browser.

I am having trouble uploading my CAD models.

We accept STL or SLC files which are exported by most CAD programs. Our Default Uploader requires HTML5 or Adobe Flash support by your web browser. If you are using an older web browser without HTML5 support, try using our Basic Uploader which is compatible with all web browsers. Please contact us should your problem persists.

What maximum file size can I upload?

Our maximum allowable upload size for an individual file is 256 MB.

Some of my uploaded parts are marked with errors. Is this a problem?

It is common for CAD programs to export STL files with holes and edge ambiguities. Our server automatically checks uploaded STL files for errors and notify you. Our server software will often be able to close holes and fix basic errors automatically, but not always. It is your responsibility to provide error free build files to avoid delays in printing your part. If in doubt please call us.

How can I reorder one of my previous jobs?

Login to your secure online account and click on the Gallery link. This will take you through to your designs. Here you can add them to cart if you need to re-order certain designs. We have a 3D review option which allows you to rotate your designs in your browser.

Do you offer painting or metal plating service?

No. If you require painting or metal plating, we can send your parts directly to a third party supplier for you. Simply add their address to your account online and select their address on the models page as the shipping address. If you have already placed your order then please call us and we can add this address for you.
