1. CONFIGURE YOUR PRINT SIZE
UBC Rapid’s printers can print objects that can be contained within a 250mm x 210mm x 200mm box (LxWxH). If multiple individual objects fit on the single 200mm x 200mm print bed, it will be considered a single print. If multiple objects are requested and each one must be printed individually, each print will be charged the $5.00 setup fee.
2. CHOOSE A PRINT RESOLUTION
Higher resolution means higher quality, but slower print time.
*An additional setup fee of $2 applies for a print resolution of 0.10 mm or less.
3. CHOOSE A FILAMENT
We recommend PLA because it is low cost and easy to work with. More exotic materials, like Nylon and PETT, are only available by special request.
|Thermoplastic||Cost per gram||Availability|
