3d Printing Cost
3d Printing is not the cheapest thing to do but is doesn't break the bank either for the standard printing filaments ABS PLA we charge just $5.00 an hr for any color we have on hand. that charged off the slicer ( the program that makes the printing file) often times it is off and prints take much longer our loss. If you looking for some of the fancier stuff like carbon fiber fill, copper fill, glow in the dark or color changing the cose dose go up to $10.00 and hr print time because the materiel cost is a lot more. Fail print no worries we will print until it come out our loss but that is our guarantee, our printer are accurate to +/- .04mm.
