Custom made-to-order plastic designs that bring your creations to life! I can print from 2D images, sketches, digital models, etc. Contact us for various colors and quotes.
To request a custom 3D print, click the "Request a custom order" link above. Pricing is determined once a custom order request is received--see FAQ below for more details. I look forward to working with you!
Our primary material is ABS plastic, the most common plastic material. We can also use PLA bioplastic, which is also food safe, if that is better suited to your project.
The printed design can be solid plastic or a shell-type design. We can achieve this by printing the interior layers in a “honey-comb” pattern. This can lower the cost while still keeping the structure strong. 3D printing involves building material layers literally from the ground up, rather than carving from a block of material, there are almost no limits to what can be built. Contact us to talk about that design you’ve always been looking for but could never find—we’re here to help!
Our maximum single piece build size is 6" x 6" x 6". If your project is larger, we can split the design into multiple smaller pieces and then epoxy them together after printing. We can also add metal fasteners and/or threads to your part.
ABS and PLA are available in many colors and even finishes. We can work together to discuss your particular design needs.
In order to create a 3D print, we need a 3D digital model. If you have access to SolidWorks, Blender (free), or some other modelling software, the preferred format is a .STL file however many files can be converted so no worries. If you do not already have a model then I can work with you to create one & even an engineering drawing if you choose to do so. All I need are the dimensions of the object in some sort of 2D image or sketch. Any files or images should be emailed to Matthewsilva908 [!at] gmail.com.
Once we have developed a rough draft of the design for your 3D printed object, I will run it through my 3D printing slicer engine to determine the projected cost of materials and print duration. You will then be provided with a detailed quote explaining the particular costs associated with your project. If the quote meets your needs, we can submit a custom order on Etsy and start the printing process.
An industry standard price is $0.50 per cubic cm (pricing is determined by volume). Most small projects will be between $30–$60. Other factors that may change price include adding metal parts (screws, bolts, etc.), incorporating mounting hardware (threaded inserts, hole tapping, etc.) & extensive design services.
