Due to the size of the models I use an FDM printer that uses PLA plastic as the material
The models that I create are usually within the 6 - 12 inch ranges once fully assembled. The larger the print, the longer it takes to produce.
Prices are negotiated with the client depending on the type of model that is to be produced. Costs such as time, materials, electricity and postage are a part of this.
This depends on the size of the print but it usually takes a few weeks to produce one model.
Yes, for those that have their own printers I am happy to sell commissioned files to them.
3d printers are not perfect, for those that have never assembled a 3d printed kit before here is my advice:
There will be layer lines (as that is how fdm printers work) so the best way to get rid of them is to prime the kit with a few coats of filler primer then lightly sand. There will also be the occasional spots that the printer will miss so model filler such as milliput, green stuff, or even things such as woodfiller and bondo would be required.
Yes, bare in mind that prices on postage may vary.
Yes I can as a premium service however this will cost extra to buy paints and other modelling materials .
Yes I also provide a service where if you already have a model but do not have a printer, I can print it off for you.
