FAQ – 3D2GO Philippines | 3D Printing Services

I’M INTERESTED IN YOUR SERVICES, BUT HOW DOES IT WORK?

?How do you measure the model's volume?
One should measure the three dimensions which are the maximum length, width and height that are perpendicular to each other.
?What is a bounding box?
A bounding box is an imaginary box that encloses the entire object in the smallest possible rectangular prism.
?What’s the turnaround time for printing and other services or options?
Generally, our typical turn-around time based on straight forward projects will last 7-10 business days. However, for more complex services, the turn-around time may vary.
?How do you price 3D models?
There are four factors that contribute to the cost of the service. We have our scanning services, prototyping/modeling/refining services, printing services, post processing services. The cost will depend on what the customer needs because 3D2Go is an end-to-end service provider.
?WHAT IS 3D PRINTING?
3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is completed using additive processes. An object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is formed in an additive method. Each of these layers can be seen as a finely sliced horizontal cross-section of the final object.
?Do you accept credit cards for payment?

Yes, we do! We accept any of following:

  • Mastercards
  • Visa
  • Express Net
  • Bancnet
  • Megalink
?Do you ship nationwide?
At this time, the consumer may select the logistics company that he/she chooses to have the item shipped under. However, 3D2Go, is already working on the partnership with a logistics company that will provide the end-to-end seamless shipping services for its customer.
?Is 3D scanning bad for you health?
No, 3D scanning doesn’t emit any radiation and doesn’t release any chemicals. The bright light used by the projector may only cause temporary discomfort when looking at it directly.

WHAT TYPES OF MATERIALS DO YOU USE?

1ABS Plastic
Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene or ABS is generally a tough plastic with mild flexibility (compared to PLA). It can take several forms and can also be engineered to have various properties as a polymer. Natural ABS prior to adding coloring and other processes is soft milky beige. The flexibility of ABS makes creating interconnecting pieces or pin connected pieces easier to work with. It can be sanded and machined without difficulty. Its flexibility, toughness, machine-friendly, and higher temperature resistance make it frequently an ideal plastic for engineers, and professional applications. This is the material also used by LEGO.
2PLA Plastic
Polylactic acid or PLA is a bio-degradable polymer produced from processing any number of plant products such as corn, potatoes or sugar-beets to name a few.PLA is deemed a more 'eco friendly' plastic compared to petroleum based ABS. PLA can be composted at commercial compost facilities and mostly used mainly in food packaging and containers. Compared to ABS, PLA demonstrates much less part warping.
3Photopolymer Resin
This material is commonly used in stereolithography 3D printing, which is an additive manufacturing process which utilizes a vat of liquid ultraviolet curable photopolymer "resin" and an ultraviolet laser to build parts' layers one at a time. For each layer, the laser beam traces a cross-section of the part pattern on the surface of the liquid resin. Resins are liquid UV-curable photopolymers employed in this process. Resin is among the best materials that produces high-resolution and quality 3D prints.
