by Wim | April 20, 2011
You can now check you Stainless Steel upload prices directly on our site. Stainless Steel was launched in January with the relatively simple pricing scheme based on volume of the model. Today you don’t need to get your calculator out anymore, just upload your design and you get your price automatically.
Up to 5 cm3 model volume : 35$
For every extra cm3 above 5 cm3 till 40 cm3 : 8 $
For every extra cm3 above 40cm3 : 7.5$
Our pricing scheme is meant to encourage models ofÂ 5cm3 and larger because we want to encourage you to make bigger things. There is now also 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.
The dice of 20x20x20 mm, has a 7.1 cm3 model volume would cost 26.6 euro/ 37 dollar.
Our beloved and solid TomyTones mascot of 45Ã—39x75mm, 50cm3 weiging 0.360 kg would be yours for 169 euro/237 dollar if it were your design.

This is the maximum price you will be paying for your design. If you have a compact model the compactness discount will automatically be substracted from your price.
a model with a volume of 3 cm3 will cost maximallyÂ : price =35 $
a model with a volume of 8 cm3 will cost maximallyÂ : price =35 $ + (8-5 ) * 8 $ = 59 $
a model with a volume of 11 cm3 will cost maximally : price =35 $ + (11-5 ) * 8 $ = 83 $
a model with a volume of 45 cm3 will cost maximally : price =35 $ + (40-5 ) * 8 $ + (45-40)*7.5 = 352.5 $
