3D Print File Preparation
We can convert many other 3D file formats into STL files optimized for 3D printing[/caption]
Considerations when preparing 3D print files
Wall thickness: If CAD models that are created for manufacturing are scaled down in size, the wall thicknesses of the model can be too thin for 3D printing. The minimum recommended wall thickness is .030″ for handling strength. We can revise your model so that it has the optimal wall thickness appropriate for the application.
Part Mating Tolerances: For parts that need to fit together, we can design your files so that they have the desired fit.
Scale: In order for your part to print at the correct size, the scale needs to be adjusted properly. Most 3D printers need the file to be in mm or inches.
