General Pricing Details
With the massive variety in terms of materials and sizes available for us to print with, the cost of printing varies per job. However at Printotype we try to help make this process more transparent by establishing these basic ground rules:
£12.00 Minimum Order Value.
£3.00 P&P if in the UK – Extralarge models or large volume orders will incur higher charges.
Delivery to Ireland, will be an Extra £6.00 per order.International Shipping available on request.
If there are problems with your Gcode on your STL File or OBJ File and it is not able to successfully 3D Print as it should I will let you know and make a small charge to Repair it, or alternatively I can put your project on hold for 24hrs whilst you work on it yourself & resend me the updated file.
If I have 3D Printed over 50% of your Model and comes up with errors I will charge 50% of the unit cost to reprint.
If a design is inherently fragile, we may consider printing it with Supports. This may marginally increase the cost as the weight will go up, but improves chances of a successful print. Printotype Ltd will ALWAYS inform you if we feel a project requires Supports. A Support cleaning service is also available starting from £5.00.
Printotype Ltd operates under the Data Protection Act 1998, so all Files & Drawings are treated as confidential. Unless specified by the client prior to commencement of work, all project data will be destroyed within 30 days of project completion.
