Post Processing Level
Once a piece has been 3D printed it requires post processing. Supports are necessary to ensure the print is successful and models must be hollowed and drainage holes need to be included. Generally speaking drain holes are placed in non-visible areas so these are rarely an issue. However, the supports must be removed before the part is cured. Removing the supports will often leave behind small nicks or nubs on the surface that must be either filled or sanded/filed. You can choose whether or not we do this for you. See below for details.
Basic - Parts are cleaned, supports are clipped off and part is post-cured. Expect to do some clean up such as sanding support nubs or small filling of support nicks and surface smoothing.
Advanced - We will do all of it for you. While we cannot guarantee that the received item will be entirely perfect (we're still human and some marks only show up after priming), we will deal with the vast majority of clean up leaving you very little to do yourself. Please expect a longer lead time if you select this option.
NOTE: You will need to do any gap fillings yourselves as we send the Physical Models in parts.
Lead Time and Shipping
All models are made to order and thus you should expect a lead time in order to prepare, print, post-process and ship your order. This should be no longer than a few days if you have selected basic post-processing but please allow up to a week if you're planning your purchase for an occasion or gift or sometimes a bit longer if you have selected advanced post-processing.
Free shipping to UK for orders of £55 or more.
Free shipping to Europe for orders of £75 or more.
We print figures at 30 micron layer heights (0.03mm) and bases at 50 microns (0.05mm)
Please handle with care, as the model parts are very delicate.
The model you receive will have been 3D printed. In order for a model to be 3D printed it has to be hollow to allow for proper cleaning and curing. Vent holes are placed in areas that are not on show to facilitate this. In some rare instances there may be a hole in a visible area and will need filling. All models require supports in order to print correctly. While all parts should fit without issue, you may find it necessary to undertake minor sanding, gap filling, clean up and priming yourself.
You may notice some staining on your printed parts. This is a side effect of using IPA for the cleaning process. This staining is present on all 3D printed parts but less noticeable on grey or lighter coloured resin. Rest assured that this staining will not effect surface quality and will cover perfectly fine with primer.
Most kits are straight forward and easy to assemble using common sense and the imagery. Should directions be necessary you will find an insert in the package with information.
