3D Print It!

10


10 simbi per hour

Get your 3D Model 3D Printed!

I will 3D Print an item for you in plastic, whether your own design or something from a site like Thingiverse.com.

Please send us a message with the model attached (or link) and specify the type of plastic (PLA, ABS, Wood), color (we carry most colors), and size you would like. We will send you a response with a quote.

Hourly rate listed is for the set-up(1 hour minimum) and time the printer is running (Typical prints take 3-10 hours. Some prints may take up to 40 hours).
Additional Simbi costs for repairing/modifying models may apply
Must pay actual $ cost for raw material and shipping (at least until Amazon and USPS accept Simbi ;)

About Plastics:
PLA - easier to print, non-petroleum based, available in translucent or opaque, will melt in a hot car
ABS - harder to print, but very strong, primarily only comes in opaque, won't melt in a hot car (It's what Legos and car parts are made of}
Wood - stainable mixture of PLA and wood fibers, very brittle and more expensive, but looks really cool

I have worked with Ryan before, as he had designed the file for 3D printing. That being said, he really goes above and beyond what your expectations a...re. I asked Ryan to make a soap stamp for my business out of just a jpg file. He was very patient the whole way through, and even tested the print multiple times to ensure I would be getting a quality product. Ryan gets all of the credit for the amazing stampings in the soap I make. I would more than gladly work with him again. HIGHLY recommend Ryan for all your 3D printing needs. P.S. He deserves 10 stars, not 5.show more

I asked Ryan to create me a soap stamp for my logo to stamp into my homemade Goat Milk Soap. Because all I had was a jpg file, he created a 3D file fo...r me and designed everything JUST as I wanted. Note this was without prior experience to making a soap stamp before. Ryan was always professional, and kept in contact throughout the deal. I would gladly work with him again (and will be having him print the file, too!)show more
