Frequently Asked Questions

Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes.

When you upload your file to 3D Spectra website then our sales team will contact you and send you quote.

Yes. 3D Spectra can fix your 3D model if you need. Also we provide 3D CAD services and 3D scanning services.

You will be given the option to customise certain parameters before confirming your order: choice of the material monochrome or colour printing choice of the final size of the object (in mm, cm or inch).

Yes. 3D Spectra can make your concept sketches into 3D models. For more information Please visit 3D Spectra.

Yes. We first scan the part to make digital copy of it using 3D Scanning. Then using different softwares we can get STL file out of Scan which can be used for 3D printing. For more information and quote please visit 3D Spectra website.

You can use any 3D software that can export to 3D printing supported file formats: STL, OBJ, VRML2, X3D and Collada. If you’re just getting started, you may want to try awesome free software like Sketchup, Tinkercad, Autodesk 123D or Blender.

Yes we check every design before 3D printing and if it has any issues we will inform you.

You can select any material from our material library. Please visit our Materials page for complete info.

We deliver 3D printed parts to you in the 5-6 working days. If there are problems in STL file then we will contact you for further action.

We majorly use Formiga P100 by Eos for 3D printing and we also have some special purpose 3D printers for color 3D printing.
