FAQ

Everything you need to know to order 3D printed parts

I do not have my own 3D files, can Jellypipe help me here?

As a professional 3D printing platform, Jellypipe offers you an all-round service from 3D design to the delivery of finished 3D printed parts. Our specialized 3D Solution Partners convert your 2D files (photos, drawings, etc.) into printable 3D files or create your desired 3D model by 3D scanning an existing physical object.

How can I create 3D models myself?

When designing and modelling 3D files, the following should be noted:

  • all models must be "waterproof", i.e. completely closed
  • there must be no open areas or edges
  • if you want a smooth surface, your model must have a high number of polygons
  • your 3D surface object should be defined as a triangular or quadrangular mesh
  • any partial bodies must be completely closed and can be "plugged" into the model
  • the minimum wall thickness is usually 0.8 mm, but varies depending on material usage
How can I be sure that my model can be printed?

Our 3D Solution Partners check your models before printing. In case of any problems you will be called to find a solution. We are also happy to offer help with the revision or repair of your 3D designs.

What wall thicknesses are possible with 3D printing?

The answer to this question depends very much on the chosen material and the associated 3D printing process. The smallest possible wall thicknesses possible are approximatley 0.3 mm using metal 3D printing processes and range to to 2.0 mm using the colour jet printing (CJP) process. You will find the required minimum wall thicknesses in our technology overview.

What exactly has to be considered when designing wall thicknesses?

To ensure the necessary stability of the model, a wall thickness of at least 0.8 mm is recommended as a rule of thumb, both for partition walls inside the model and for external walls. This value - illustrated in the figure below - refers to selective laser sintering (SLS) with PA plastic.

What has to be considered in SLS for the construction of partition walls?

Partitions in SLS printed 3D models should be constructed with a minimum thickness of 1 mm to ensure optimum stability of the printed model.

What is the minimum level of detail I need to collect and deepen?

A thickness of at least 0.5 mm is recommended for the most flawless execution of both raised and recessed details in 3D models.

Which software do I need to create a 3D model?

If you want to create your own 3D print models, you need to use 3D CAD modelling software. There is a large selection of partly free, partly paid software available, from which you can choose according to your level of knowledge and requirements.

For beginners, Google SketchUp and Smoothie 3D software are recommended, while for users with advanced CAD knowledge, OpenSCad and Blender are packages with great functionality. If you like traditional drawing, we suggest Sculptris.

Paid CAD programs for advanced 3D printing users are Auto CAD and Simplify 3D.

Can I have my own 3D models printed?

Of course you can upload your models directly in the 3D configurator. The configurator checks your file for the most important features of a 3D design and tells you if your 3D file is compliant with the available printers.  

How do I upload my 3D model in the online configurator?

After you have registered and logged in to your 3D Solution Partner's store, you can click on "Select file" and then upload the file. After your file has been checked for 3D printability, you can select the desired materials and finishes. After you have configured your 3D model you will receive various offers from your chosen 3D Solutions Partner. According to your requirements you can choose the offer with the best price-performance ratio or the offer with the fastest delivery turnaround.

Which 3D file formats can I upload in the 3D Online Configurator?

We are able to read almost all common 3D formats or convert them if required.
We can process the following 3D files without any problems:

.3dm, .3ds, .3dxml, .3mf, .CATPart, .dae, .dlv, .dlv3, .dxf, .exp, .fbx, .iges, .igs, .jt, .model, .obj, .ply, .prt, .skp, .slc, .sldprt, .step, .stl, .stp, .vda, .vdafs, .vrml, .wrl, .x_b, .x_t, .zcp, .zpr

What can I do if textures and colors are lost when uploading 3D files?

For some formats, especially the .obj format, it is important that the files are compressed into a single .zip folder before uploading. You must therefore select the appropriate .zip folder on your PC before uploading the 3D model (or before sending it to Jellypipe), then there should be no more loss of textures and colours.

How is the price for a 3D model calculated at Jellypipe?

The following factors determine the price for a 3D print with our 3D printing service:

  • The quantity of material, i.e. on the one hand the total quantity of material required for the order and on the other hand the quantity of material actually used to make the part. These parameters are defined in the 3D files.
  • The machine running time required to create the 3D model.
  • The working time of the employees involved in the printing process.
  • The material you have selected for 3D printing. For example, you have to estimate more for silver as a 3D material than for plastics.
  • The utilization of our 3D printing facilities. If this can be optimally planned, this will lower the price. If the 3D print is to be finished quickly, it will usually be more expensive, because in this case the printing has to be done without taking into account the optimal utilization of the plant.
Are my 3D models really kept confidential?

With us you can be absolutely sure that nobody will see your designs or the 3D models already made for you. We will be happy to confirm this in a contract.
