3D Printing FAQs

1. What are your 3D printing tolerances?

2. What is the difference between LEDO 6060, 9000R and 8000 resin?

9000R has a temperature resistance of 46 degrees and has better toughness than 9000E, which possesses a higher printing success rate. It is mainly used for printing product shell verification, prototypes and props. It is the preferred solution for a low budget.

8000 is an imported material with a temperature resistance of 46 degrees. The main advantage of it is that the printing surface will be detailed, which is suitable for the verification of the assembly shell. The longer the time, the whiter the surface. It is a high-end material in the product verification category and is suitable for customers who have certain requirements on appearance.

Ledo6060 is an imported new material with a temperature resistance of 56 degrees which was launched in 2021. This material has a stable printing effect, high-temperature resistance, and good toughness, which is quite suitable for batch printing. Its characteristics make it suitable to avoid softening and deformation during transportation and other high-temperature environments. It is a mid-end material with advantages in high-temperature resistance, good toughness, and dimensional stability.

Conclusion: Among the three resin materials, 9000R has a high-cost performance. 8000 focus on high precision, high quality. If you have high requirements for appearance, you can choose this kind of material. 6060 is suitable for mass production parts and parts with temperature resistance requirements.

3. What is the Heat deflection temperature of these materials?

4. Is it possible to do post-treatment, such as spray-painting, polishing, and electroplating?

No. But spray-painting will be provided soon.

5. Which kind of 3D printing material is better?

Resin 8000 is the most cost-effective printing material currently. The toughness, precision, and color are all better than most other resin materials.

6. What is the build time?

Generally, resin parts take 48 hours, nylon parts take 72 hours.

For Special-shaped or large-volume parts, build time adds 1-2 days.

For batch orders, build time adds 1-3 days depends on the order quantity.

7. Can nylon be printed in black or white?

Nylon PA12 is naturally gray, however, the black is dyed afterward. The white nylon will be available in the near future.

8. Do you offer materials in other colors?

No, currently we only offer white resin and gray nylon.

9. Can you print transparent parts?

No.

10. How about the strength of the material?

Resin material with high hardness, but slightly less toughness;

Nylon PA12 with better hardness and toughness, but there is graininess on its surface.

11. What is the maximum build size for 3D printing?

12. What is the minimum build size for 3D printing?

Generally, our minimum build size for 3D printing is 5mm*5mm*5mm (length*width*height). If 2 sides of the (length*width*height) are more than 10mm, but the minimum side is less than 5mm, we will proceed after the evaluation with our 3D engineer as per your files. We might contact you for more details because there will exist some risks that the model might not be fully printed out.

13. Can you 3D print threads?

Yes, the minimum screw we can make is GB M6 coarse thread.

14. What's the price of 3D printing?

Starting price of resin is $1.00, and $2.00 for PA12.

15. Can you print in flexible material?

No, currently we don't have flexible material. 

16. Why the price quoted on the website is “$1”, but the final price changed after the order reviewed?

Actually, the 3D printing starting price is $1, and the price on our website calculator depends on the volume of your model. If the model is too small, which is less than $1, it will be calculated as $1/pcs by default. Also, if the real volume of the model could not be correctly detected ("0" volume) due to the file error, it will also show $1/pcs and the final price will be updated after the order is reviewed by manual.
