Our company offers 3D printing services for amateurs and professionals alike. It doesn’t matter if you need parts for your model aircraft or a prototype of a robotic arm. You design, we deliver.
Our industrial-grade URBICUM 3D printers use FDM (fused deposition modeling) technology. You can choose from a variety of materials such as PLA, ABS 702, PET-G, GLASS 807, rubber, and FLEX 505. We use only filaments from proven suppliers. Our main supplier is Nebula Filaments – one of the best on the market. If you don’t know what material to choose – it’s no problem! Contact us, and we will select filament best for your application free of charge.
In many applications, the raw 3D printed part is just not usable. Sometimes it’s about roughness or dimension accuracy, sometimes the looks, and sometimes you need your parts to be water-tight. That’s where post-processing comes in.
We offer mechanical, chemical, and thermal smoothing and sealing of the pores in the printed parts. Thanks to our experience in underwater robotics, we can manufacture parts using combined techniques of printing and vacuum resin casting. Thanks to our partners, printed elements can be CNC-machined to fit applications requiring outstanding accuracy.
Our biggest printer offers a build volume of 430 x 400 x 500mm. If your model exceeds those dimensions, we can divide into several parts and glue them using the best adhesives or solvents to ensure aesthetic and durable joint.
THE BIGGER THE BASE, THE BETTER
The base of the printed part usually has to be flat to adhere to the printer bed. The bigger the surface of adhesion compared to the height, the better. Elements with little or none base can be printed with additional support material and lower print speed.
DECIDE, WHICH SIDE OF YOUR MODEL FACES UP
Let us know if you have decided where is the “top” of your model. Usually, the best solution is to print a part on its biggest flat surface.
AVOID HANGING ELEMENTS
Particularly complex models, consisting of many “hanging” parts can be divided into simpler elements, printed as such and glued together. We advise doing so in looks-sensitive applications, where marks left by support material can compromise surface appearance.
FILLET THE EDGES
Sharp edges between faces, between which there is angle exceeding 30° should be rounded (radius about 1mm) to enhance part appearance. Sharp edges tend to show slight irregularities due to flow of molted filament and varying direction of printing head movement.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR PART’S APLICATION
When we know precisely, how given part will be utilized, we can choose the best material and printing settings to ensure long and trouble-free operation.
SAVE IN .STL FORMAT
We accept .STL files. The lower you set tessellation (smaller polygons), the smoother and more accurate your part will be.
