What is 3D print volume?

What is 3D print volume?

The 3D printing volume of a printer gives the maximum size that one object can have in order to be printed. There are printers of many different sizes, big and small. For example the Stratasys objet1000 printer has a maximum size of 1000x800x500mm.

How expensive is a 3D printer?

Most Entry Level and Hobbyist 3D printers are priced from $200 – $500, while some can be as expensive as $1500. The higher end 3D printers, such as Enthusiast 3D printers and Professional 3D printers are priced anywhere from $1,500 – $6,000, depending on the printer’s capabilities.

Is 3D printing expensive in India?

There is a lot of interest in 3D printing in education sector as well. “Cost ranges from as low as ₹80,000 to ₹1.5 crore, depending on technology and build size for polymer printing. Material cost varies from ₹2 per gram to ₹15 per gram depending on the choice of material.

How to calculate the volume of a 3D printer?

Multiply the rate for the printer by your total volume. This is the cost you will be charged, unless there is some unusal edge case with your job. The rates per cubic inch for each printer are listed on our 3D print submission page, as well as the individual tool pages for the printers.

How to calculate 3D printing filament length and weight?

With this calculator, you can convert the length of 3d printing filament into the weight of the 3d printing filament and the volume of the 3d printed model. You can also upload an STL-file* to determinate this values and you’ll also see a slighlty buggy preview of the model.

Is there a way to calculate the cost of 3D printing?

If you have searched for a 3d print price tool or 3D print calculator then you have found that they are out there. But, most of them are either manual entry and are a ballpark estimate to what your real cost is of 3d prints. We have put together this price tool to try and make it easy and accurate to price and calculate an stl file for 3d printing.

How can you tell how much material is used in a 3D printer?

You can not tell this by looking at the STL file alone, because how much material will be used depends on the print settings (obviously, printing at 100% infill will consume much more material than 10%). The best way to check the material usage is to load the model into a slicer and slice it using your preferred settings.
