1. CONFIGURE YOUR PRINT SIZE
UBC Rapid’s printers can print objects that can be contained within a 250mm x 210mm x 210mm cube (LxWxH) or a cylinder with a 200mm diameter and a 300mm height. 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 on its own, 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 will be applied for print resolution of 0.10 mm or less.
3. CHOOSE A FILAMENT
We recommend using PLA because it is low cost and easy to work with.
Other plastics like ABS may be used, but they are only stocked on special request. Some of the more exotic materials like Nylon and PETT may only be available by special request.
