Below are our most commonly asked questions, If you have a question that is is not answered, please contact us.
Who are 3D PRINT DYNAMICS? - 3D PRINT DYNAMICS aims to explore the creative uses of 3D Design & 3D Printing. We are based in Ripon, North Yorkshire, UK
What is 3D Printing? - 3D printing, also referred to as additive manufacturing, is the process of creating a physical 3D object from a digital file. Using special software, the digital file (.stl) is sliced, with each slice representing a layer, the sliced file (G-code) is then sent to the 3D printer which forms 3D objects using successive layers.
What is SLA Printing? - Stereolithography (SLA) is a 3D printing process using ultraviolet (UV) lasers and photo-polymer resins, available in a range of materials (flexible, clear etc..) and colours to build layers forming 3D objects.
What is FDM Printing? - Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) is a 3D printing process which utilises spools of filament, available in a range of materials (PLA, ABS etc..) and colours, which is heated and layered to form 3D objects.
What 3D printers do you use? - Formlabs Form 2. We can also outsource depending on the requirements, please contact us with your specifications.
What is the maximum print size? - 145 x 145 x 175 mm, 5.7 x 5.7 x 6.9 in - We can outsource for larger prints, please contact us with your specifications.
What is the best print quality? - 25 microns or 0.025 mm
How long does 3D printing take? - This varies depending on the size and quality of the print, it can range from several minutes to several hours, once we have your .stl file we can give a more accurate estimate.
How much do you charge for printing? - Due to the complexities of 3D printing, we price all projects on an individual basis depending on requirements, please email your .stl files to us at email@example.com with your specifications.
How do I get a quote? - Please email your .stl file(s) to us at firstname.lastname@example.org We are unable to quote without a printable .stl file. All quotations are FREE and we will respond ASAP.
