3D-printing.

Conditions.

The system automatically distributes customer orders for 3D printing. If necessary, our specialists will help with the preparation of the G-Code.

Upon receipt of the order, the Contractor must make the product exactly on those 3D printers that were indicated when you registered as a contractor and were confirmed by the Studia3D Aggregator System Administrators.

Non-fulfillment of the order is not allowed after the contractor has accepted the order and notified the customer by e-mail. Any order must be shipped if the conditions of the order require it.

The lead time for an order should not exceed 14 calendar days.

Delivery of the order is carried out by our courier service.

The manufactured products do not allow the presence of the following elements of marriage:

  1. The lack of the correct height of the first layer. It is very important that the first layer of your print is firmly bonded to the printer bed so that the rest of your part can be built on that base. If the first level is not tied to the build platform, it will create problems later.
  2. Insufficient extrusion. The most reliable way to check if material is extruding enough from the nozzle is to print a simple 20mm cube with at least three perimeter contours. Check the actual extrusion width.
  3. Over-extrusion. This over-extrusion will result in excess plastic that can ruin the outer dimensions of your part. Make sure you have selected the right material flow.
  4. Gaps in the upper layers. While the inside of the part may be partially hollow, we want the outside to remain solid.
  5. Strings and threads.  Stringing (aka bleed, mustache or “hairy” prints) occurs when small strings of plastic are left on the 3D printed model. This is usually due to plastic leaking from the nozzle as the extruder is moved to a new location.
  6. Overheating of the material. The plastic exiting the extruder can range from 190 to 310 degrees Celsius. While the plastic is still hot, it is malleable and can easily be formed into various shapes. However, as it cools, it quickly hardens and retains its shape. You need to strike the right balance between temperature and cooling so that your plastic can flow freely through the nozzle, but it can also harden quickly to maintain the exact dimensions of your 3D printed part. If this balance is not struck, you may start to notice some print quality issues where the outside of your part is not as precise and defined as you would like.
  7. Offset layers. The printer just tries to move the tool head to a specific location and hopes it gets there. In most cases, this works fine because the stepping motors that drive the printer are quite powerful and there are no significant loads to impede the movement of the tool head. However, if something goes wrong, the printer will not be able to detect it.
  8. Separation and delamination of layers. For the final piece to be strong and reliable, you need to make sure that each layer is properly bonded to the layer below it. If the layers do not join well enough, the end piece may split or separate.
  9. Skips or overflows of material in layers. If your printer was extruding properly at the start of printing, but later suddenly stopped extruding, there are usually only a few things that could cause this problem. Check filament diameter, extruder cleanliness, material feed unit. If the problem persists, contact your 3D printer manufacturer. If everything works correctly, these layers will look like one smooth surface. However, if something goes wrong with one of these layers, it is usually clearly visible from the outside of the print. These irregular layers may appear as lines or ridges on the sides of your piece.
  10. The number of perimeters is less than three. The minimum number of outer perimeters should not be less than three pieces.
  11. Weak internal filling. The padding inside your 3D printed part plays a very important role in the overall strength of your model. The infill is responsible for joining the outer skins of your 3D print, and must also support the top surfaces that will be printed over the infill.
  12. Surface quality. The seam. Compensate for seam spread on the model. Bring the seam together or optimize it. 
  13. Shrinkage of the material. As you start printing large models, you may notice that although the first few layers of your part have successfully adhered to the bed, later the part begins to curl and warp. This curl can be so strong that it actually causes a portion of your model to separate from the bed, and can eventually cause the entire print to fail. This behavior is especially common when printing very large or very long parts with high temperature materials such as ABS. The main reason for this problem is the fact that the plastic tends to shrink when cooled.
  14. Breaks in thin walls. Since your 3D printer has a fixed size nozzle, you can run into problems when printing very thin walls that are only a few times the diameter of the nozzle. For example, if you were trying to print a 1.0mm wall with a 0.4mm extrusion width, you might need to make some adjustments so that the printer creates a completely solid wall without leaving a gap in the middle. If you are unable to resolve this error, please contact aggregator@studia3d.com for help in preparing the G-Code.
  15. ВVibrations and oscillations. A wavy pattern that can appear on the surface of your print due to vibration from the printer. Typically, you will notice this pattern when the extruder suddenly changes direction, such as near a sharp corner. For example, if you were printing a 20mm cube, each time the extruder switches to print a different face of the cube, it will need to change directions. This can be affected by 3D printing speed, 3D printer mechanical problems, incorrect 3D printer firmware. Read the article on 3D printing quality carefully.
  16. Traces from free movements of the extruder. Correctly adjust the retraction during free movement of the extruder to prevent these marks.
  17. Gaps between infill and perimeter. Each layer of your 3D printed piece is created using a combination of path perimeter and fill. Perimeters outline the outline of your piece, creating a durable and precise look. Padding is printed inside these perimeters to make up the rest of the layer. Filling typically uses a fast back and forth pattern to ensure fast print speeds. Since the fill uses a different pattern from the outline of your part, it is important that the two sections merge together and form a strong bond.
  18. Gaps in the floor corners. When creating a 3D printed part, each layer rests on a foundation from the layer below. However, the amount of plastic used for printing is also a problem, so a balance must be struck between the strength of the substrate and the amount of plastic that is used. If the base is not strong enough, you will begin to see holes and gaps between the layers.
  19. Poor axle tension. Bridge is a term that refers to plastic that needs to be extruded between two points without any support from below. Larger bridges may need to add support structures, but short bridges can usually be printed without any supports to save material and printing time. When you connect between two points, the plastic will be forced out through the gap and then quickly cooled to create a strong connection. To get the best bridging results, you need to make sure that your printer is properly calibrated with the best settings for these special segments. If you notice sagging, drooping, or gaps between the extruded segments, you may need to change the settings for best results.

Defects in technology and assumptions in relation to the customer model are allowed:

  1. Poor surface in areas over supporting structures. Check that the model is correctly positioned in the 3D printer area to minimize these areas on the model.
  2. Product accuracy. The size of your 3D printed parts can be extremely important if you are creating large assemblies or parts that need to fit perfectly. There are many general factors that can affect this accuracy, such as under or over extrusion, heat shrinkage, filament quality, and even the alignment of the first layer nozzles. Check all the points from a separate article to ensure that all the necessary standards are met to get the most accurate product possible.
  3. Small items are not printed. If a specific nozzle is specified in the ordering parameters but you see that some elements are not printed with this nozzle diameter, you should not try to set a smaller diameter. It is necessary to print the model in such a form that the slicer produces with the nozzle diameter specified in the order parameters.

A detailed description of all errors and ways of solving them are published on the Simplify3D website.

Calculation of the cost of products for the client.

Produced from inventory (Materials, printer hours)

The calculation of the cost of 3D printing is carried out automatically. The Cura 15.04 software is used as a slider to calculate the cost of FDM 3D printing. To calculate the cost of other technologies, the parametric data of the 3D model is used. The cost is calculated based on the condition:

*Hardware depreciation is calculated at $ 0.0059 / hr including depreciation for an open 3D printer or $ 0.044 / hr including depreciation for an enclosed 3D printer.

**Electricity costs are calculated based on the electricity tariff equal to USD 0.039 / kWh. The average power of the 3D printer is 500 W.

If for some reason the system could not automatically calculate the cost of FDM 3D printing then the assessment takes place manually through the Simplify3D software. The cost is calculated based on the condition:

Product cost = {Number of 3D printing hours} x {$ 2.59 / hour} x 2 + {Material cost at market price}

By connecting to the system, you agree to the client’s prices for 3D printing. At the time you receive a 3D printing request, you will have the option to cancel the order, for example if you have a large download. However, if you frequently refuse orders, there is a high probability that the administrator will disconnect you from receiving the order.

Term of order fulfillment by the contractor: no more than 7 calendar days.
