Pricing Info

Up to 5 cm³ model volume: 25.00 USD for non gold plated colors / 31.00 USD for gold-plated colors.

  • For every extra cm³ above 5 cm³ till 40 cm³: 8.00 USD
  • For every extra cm³ above 40 cm³: 7.50 USD

Our pricing scheme is meant to encourage models of 5 cm³ and larger because we want to encourage you to make bigger things. There is now also an extra discount for compact models. The more material you have within the imaginary box around your model, the bigger your discount becomes for the same model volume. So the pricing scheme is the maximum price you will pay. To know the real (discounted) price, upload your design. Here are some pricing examples for non-gold-plated colors.

The maximum price for a model with a volume of:

  • 3 cm³ will be 35.00 USD
  • 8 cm³ will be 35.00 USD + (8-5) * 8.00 USD = 59.00 USD
  • 11 cm³ will be 35.00 USD + (11-5) * 8.00 USD = 83.00 USD
  • 45 cm³ will be 35.00 USD + (40-5) * 8.00 USD + (45-40) * 7.5 = 352.50 USD

For gold-plated colors, add 6.00 USD more.

Please, note that the price is first calculated in Dollar and then converted to Euro for non-US customers.

Typical Use

Steel is typically used for full functional parts, spare parts and jewelry.

Technology

Steel 3D printing

With Steel 3D printing, your part is created by binding together layers of steel powder. Specifically, after a layer of steel powder is spread across the base of a “build box”, a special print head moves back and forth over the layer, and deposits binding agent at specific points, as directed by a computer and your design file. Once the layer is finished and it has been dried via powerful overhead heaters, a new layer of powder is spread, and the process begins again. In this way, layer by layer, from the bottom up, your part is created.

Steel 3D printing

Once the printing is done, the build box is placed in a curing oven and your part is sintered. The extra powder that was not bound, and is not part of your design, is then removed. At this point, your part is still very fragile. This so-called “green state” will be the base of some of the design rules and limitations that follow below. Finally, via the use of a flute system, your design is infused with bronze, which replaces the binding agent. Your part is now solid metal, and after the flutes are manually removed, it is tumbled and polished to produce a smooth finish.
