Checks and Repairs

Upon upload, your model immediately goes to our automatic and manual printability checks.

Automatic printability checks

1. Readable File Format

   Supported file types to be STL and OBJ only. And MTL, JPEG, and PNG for material and textures for colored 3D printing.

2. File size

    File upload will not proceed if your model is too heavy. We suggest keeping your model size to be less than 20MB size per part.

3. Printer bounding box

    Your model must fit within at least one of our printers. The minimum and maximum bounding box requirements vary by material and can be found here.

Manual printability checks (results within 24hours)

1. Mesh Integrity checks and repair

    Your model must be watertight/closed, with correct normals, and manifold.

We check and repair for:

- Holes in the mesh

- Self-intersections

-Flipped Triangles

-Double Triangles

-Degenerate faces

-Overlapping Shells

2. Wall thickness

    Walls in your design need to be thick enough to support the weight, withstand cleaning, polishing, sorting, and shipping.

    We will not approve your model for selling if the minimum thickness of your model is less than our requirement. Please read our material requirements and edit your model.

3. Loose Shells

    An appropriate clearance between shells is important because if they are too close together, your model may not print properly.

    We will not approve your model for selling if the minimum clearance between two shells is less than our requirement. Please read our material requirements and edit your model.
