Please be informed that the language to be used during the whole ordering process is English.
(b) Unacceptable orders, cancellation of orders by us. If you receive an email from us with a price quote, the default assumption is that it can be produced. There are, however, technical or other reasons why 3DEPO may not accept or may cancel your order during the entire ordering process, even after our acceptance of your order. Such reasons can be, but are not limited to, the unfeasibility of the model, an infringing feature of your 3D Model, or the destination of the delivery you indicated in your order. In case we cancel your partial or entire order, we will contact you via email and, except in cases of fraud or other violations of our policies, issue you a full refund for the cancelled item(s).
(c) Prices. The prices and price estimations displayed on the Website are only indicative. 3DEPO reserves the right to change its prices on the website at any time without prior notice to you. Such change however will have no effect on orders completed before the posting of a new price on the website. We do our best to prevent errors in the pricing. However, should an error occur, we are not bound by our offer and may cancel the order. In the event of an error, any money paid related to that order will be refunded to you.
(d) Payment and price. The amount indicated on the quotation email is in AUD (Australian Dollars) and includes the fee for the service (such as printing and packing the model), the price for the materials used to produce the 3D Model and any additional services that you may have requested. The price quoted on the will includes shipping costs, sales tax (if applicable) but excludes any import duty or taxes (if applicable). If you pay in a currency that is different from the denominated currency of your payment method (which is probably the case if your bank or credit card account is not denominated in Australian. Dollars), your payment company (such as your credit or bank card issuer) or third-party payment processor may apply a currency conversion rate or fees to your payment. Please contact your provider for information about these fees. These fees are not controlled by or known to 3DEPO.
You can initiate your payment for your order via PayPal.com. When paying using PayPal you will be directed to the PayPal.com website using the provided payment link in the quotation email from 3DEPO.
For orders paid for via credit card or PayPal, 3DEPO will begin production after authorizing and holding payment.
(e) Acceptance After accepting your order we will send you an order confirmation by e-mail to the address provided by you to 3DEPO. The order confirmation will be effective as of the date on which the order confirmation is sent to you. If we cannot accept your order we will contact you by email. You should verify the details in the confirmation email. If there are errors you should contact us as soon as possible by sending us an email.
(f) Order Tracking Where applicable we will provide you with a tracking number for your parcel containing you order. This tracking number will be emailed to you once your order has been produced, packaged and shipped to your designated address.
(g) Shipping Your order will be delivered to your shipping address. We deliver to multiple countries. You can only select those countries as your shipping address during the ordering process. We will use our commercially reasonable efforts to ship the 3D Model to the shipping address within the delivery time indicated in our confirmation email; nevertheless, depending on your shipping address it may take longer time.

We stock a wide range of 3D printing materials and colours for all major 3D printing Technologies based on additive layers, FDM, SLA and SLS*, each with its own set of applications and benefits. Depending on your intended application for the parts we may be able to suggest a material that suits your purpose. Feel free to contact us if you’re unsure what material you may need.
3D Printing Materials
FDM 3D printing is the most affordable and robust solution for both functional parts and decorative items. The FDM printers uses plastic filament made of a variety of materials and colours each with it’s pros and cons. In addition to the material type the quality of the 3D prints is defined by the layer height and print nozzle size. See the section on “3D Printing Quality” further down on this page where we’ll explain the difference between the “Fine”,”Standard” and “Draft” material print qualities. Most common FDM materials are:
- PLA, a bio degradable plastic that is stiff but brittle with temperature resistance up to about 60°C.
- ABS is a versatile material with some flexibility and good temperature resistance up to 105°C, perfect for most functional prototypes but it has a tendency to warp/deform and shrink during printing commonly around part edges.
- Flexible material such as TPU, TPE and PolyFlex can be used to make prototypes of mobile phone covers and similar but are not suitable for parts with small details and can only be used for parts that don’t require supports.
- Other exotic material such as Polywood and Bronze fill produce aesthetically pieces with good level of details but that are brittle and less suitable for functional prototypes.
SLA 3D printing resins are based on UV curable polymers (liquid material that solidifies under UV light from a laser or other accurate light source) and are suitable for a variety of application where high detail accuracy and aestheticism are of importance. SLA models are used by art designer to dentists and medical specialists. Jewelry casting commonly apply SLA models as templates when creating the molds for production. Dental models of implants and even functional retainers can be produced fast and accuratly using SLA technology. SLA offers fewer materials and colour rage compared to FDM. The quality of the prints is defined by the layer height in microns or μm, further discussed in the “3D Printing Quality” section below. The most common resins are:
- Regular UV curing resin. The parts will be relatively brittle and should be handled with care especially parts with thin details.
- Clear UV resin. Parts will come out relatively clear but as wall thickness increased above 2mm there will be a reduction in clarity and a yellow tint to the parts.
- Flexible UV resin. The parts will very flexible and tough. You can twist a part up to 360° and the part will recover to it’s original shape.
- Hard UV resin. The parts will be very stiff and will resist break more than regular resin. At the break point there will be very little elongation.
- Though UV resin. The parts will have some flexibility but enabling the parts to be impact tough. Will have some elongation at break point.
- Casting resin and medical grade resin can be offered as well. Please contact us for more information.
SLS 3d printing uses Polyamids (PA11 or PA12) as material in a fine powder form. The particles are sintered togheter through heat from a laser beam. The SLS parts are used as functional prototypes due to the strenght and flexibility of the PA materials, and in some cases as esteticala models. The main advantage of SLS 3d printing is that it doesn’t need supports.
*We may not stock SLS material or may provided SLS 3d prints for a 3rd party supplier.
3D Printing Quality
FDM 3D printing quality can be selected from the material list together with the material type. We’ve simplified the selection process by creating 3 quality options:
- FINE -> This option provides the most accurate FDM prints with good detail level. It also requires the longest print time at higher cost. We use 0.3-0.4mm nozzle diameter and 0.08-0.1mm layer height. The finer layer height the less visible they.
- STANDARD -> Is the most commonly used providing good balance between quality and price. We use 0.4-0.6mm nozzles diamater and 0.2-0.3 mm layer height
- DRAFT -> This option is suitable for large size prints or rough prints. Please not that small parts cannot be printed with this option. We use 0.8-1mm nozzle diameter and 0.4-0.6mm layer height.
For flexible materials only the DRAFT option is available due to limitation of the technology. For other materials we only offer the STANDARD option.
SLA 3D printing quality is also selectable from the material list. The quality for the SLS is defined by the layer height in microns.
- 25μm is the ultra fine layer height possible to print. The prints will recreate even the thinnest details visible. This is the most accurate, expensive and time demanding printing option.
- 50μm is a super fine layer height with excellent detail reproduction.
- 85μm is a very fine layer height producing details much clear than any FDM prints. This is also the lowest cost of the SLA options.
Infill refers to the amount of material or density in the solid section of your 3D model. The flexibility of 3D printing technology enables solid sections to be printed light as well as strong using various infill patterns (grid, honeycomb, etc) and infill amounts or rates. The definition of infill vary between FDM, SLA and SLS 3d printing technologies. If unsure please contact us for advise.
For FDM 3D prints an infill rate of 20%-30% in a grid pattern is the standard. This will produce a part strong enough for fit and fill purposes. For a functional part we suggest an infill rate of 75%-100%. If a balanced weight – strength ratio is important a honeycomb infill would be more suitable with 50% infill rate. Keep in mind that a higher infill rate will incur more cost to your 3D print as more material is required (producing a heavier part) and a longer printing time is needed. Printing time almost doubles for a part printed at 20% infill compared with same part printed at 50%infill rate.
For SLA 3D prints the infill can be defined as either:
- Hollow -> where a solid 3D model such as a figurine is printed hollow on the inside with just a 2mm-3mm wall thickness. Your 3D part can be fully solid when you submit it to us and we’ll make it hollow if you select this infill option. This option is standard unless otherwise chosen by the customer. If the part is very small the print will be produced as solid.
- Reinforced -> where a solid or hollow 3D modell can be printed with a thicker wall thickness based on customer requirements.
- Solid -> where a part is printed fully solid or following exactly the density of the 3D model provided by the customer.
SLS 3D prints will print as provided by the customer 3D model or as requested.
In addition to the material and infill options you may select a of post processing service or the Live View feature from the options list. Depending on your selected material the content in the additional option list may change to reflect applicable services. If you’re not sure what additional service you may need or to combine services please specify your requirements or contact us directly.
Support Removal FDM/SLA
Both FDM and SLA 3D prints require support pillars in order to print area of the parts that are hanging horizontally from the main body in an agle larger than 55º. See image on the right to better understand. Another example would be a simple cube or a pyramid, both would not require any supports, however, an upside-down pyramid will require supports if the side walls are angled at more than 55-60º.
For parts with a small surface contact with the print bed a so call RAFT is used. This is made of a few layers of plastic printed as a tray on which the part and support are then build on.
After the print is completed these supports (and raft, if any) have to be removed carefully from the part. This is a manual process that require some skill and appropriate tools in order to minimized the scarring on the part surface and the risk of damaging the actual parts. We offer Support Removal as a service at extra cost however you may choose to opt out and do this operation yourself.
Please note that the supports will always leave some type of marks on the finished part. These marks may be reduced or removed completely with sanding or other post processing methods which are not included or part of the Support Removal services offered. It is therefore important that you specify your requirements in terms of areas clear of supports marks or acceptable for support contacts.
We invest time in preparing your part for print in such a way as to maximize accuracy and minimized the amount of supports required. This will save material, reduce printing time and reduce support scarring and support removal time.
The supports pillars are generated by our 3D printing software an are not required to be included in your 3D model unless you have special requirement.
For SLS parts support are not required however the parts have to be cleaned of plastic powder using brushes and compressed air. Basic part clean up is included in the price of the part.
Post print UV cure
For SLA printed parts an additional UV cure step may be purchased. This will create additional strength and rigidity to the part. The parts are placed in a special chamber and exposed to UV light with a specific intensity and wavelength suitable for the resin used. Customers are advise to specify the use case for their parts as this will define the parameters for the UV curing process.
UV protective coating
SLA parts, especially the parts made with CLEAR resin may become hazy, brittle and get a yellow tint over time if exposed to sun light or other UV light source. One way to reduce this effect is to apply UV protection coating. This is a transparent coating and will not impact the clarity of the parts. For other colours it may add a level of gloss to the surface. If you require this option please advise in your comments.
