    Q&A 3D Printing


    1. How is the 3D Printing product quality ?

    3D printing layer height can be as low as 0.1mm. Printing a big object using 0.1mm can take up to 15hrs. We normally print at 0.3mm and this can achieve a very good quality finish.

    Untreated 3D printing object though good is not smooth like the plastic from toys. For professional design company we offer additional sanding and spray painting service which would give a very smooth printing service.
