Our FDM manufacturing standards

We manufacture your parts according to strict manufacturing standards. A verification of these requirements is included in our inspection report that is shipped with every order.

  • Desktop FDM: A dimensional accuracy of ± 0.5% with a lower limit of ± 0.5 mm (± 0.020").
  • Industrial FDM: A dimensional accuracy of ± 0.25% with a lower limit: ± 0.25 mm (± 0.010").
  • Consistent surface finish with no bumps or delamination. Marks left by retraction and layer changing are acceptable.
  • All support material is removed such that the supported surface has a consistent finish.
  • All parts are printed with 3 outline / perimeter shells or a wall thickness of 1.2 mm.
