Do I need a 3D Model?

Yes! But SoliDesign doesn’t simply offer 3D Printing- we offer full design services as well. You can come to us at any stage, we have seen a project through conception-production. Whether you have a pencil sketch or model, we can import nearly any file type. If  you need a few modifications, we can cater to that as well. Still not sure? Just give us a call!


I’m having trouble explaining this via email.  Can I stop by?

Absolutely! Walk-In’s are welcome. We’d love to meet and chat with you, go over your design in person to guarantee the best results possible.


I want to use my print as a display model. Can I paint it?

Most plastics can be painted using special plastic primer. We recommend using a high build plastic primer with a light sanding between coats to produce the best surface quality. If the surface finish isn’t important and your model is to be FDM printed, ask us about our color options. Many different colors are available.


What kind of plastic is used?

ABS and PLA filament are used on our 3D printers.


How fast is it?

That depends on the project. Of Course the size, resolution, and materials greatly influence the speed of the printer.


How much does 3D printing cost?

That will depend on the project. The cost is determined by the following factors:

  • What type of filament is being used
  • The length of time to print
  • Quantity

After the initial consult, we can make an honest assessment and provide you with a tailored quote.


My file is too large to upload.  What should I do?

Please contact us to arrange an alternate upload method.


Can I print in a material that is not listed on this site?

We can usually accommodate most printable thermoplastics, please contact us with any special requests.


Do you provide finishing?

Yes we provide custom finishing as an add-on feature.
