Everything you need to know to order 3D models

I don't have my own 3D files, can Jellypipe help me here?

As a professional 3D service provider Jellypipe offers you an all-round service from 3D construction to the finished 3D printed object. Our specialized resellers convert your 2D files (photos, drawings, etc.) into printable 3D files or create your desired 3D model using 3D scanning of your physical object.

How can I create 3D models myself?

When designing and modelling 3D files, the following must be observed:

  • 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 triangle or square mesh.
  • Any partial bodies must be completely closed and can be "inserted" into the model.
  • The minimum wall thickness is usually 0.8 mm, but varies depending on the material.
How can I be sure that my model can be printed?

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

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 range of the smallest possible wall thicknesses extends from 0.3 mm in metal printing up to 2.0 mm in CJP printing with polymer gypsum as well as in FDB printing with PMMA plastic or quartz sand. The required wall thicknesses can be found in our technology overview.

What must be taken into account when designing wall thicknesses?

In order 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 within the model and for external walls. This value, illustrated in the figure below, refers to SLS printing with PA plastic.

What has to be considered in selective laser sintering for the construction of partition walls?

Partitions in SLS pressure 3D models should be designed to be at least 1 mm thick to ensure optimum stability of the printed model.

To what extent do I have to add sublime and in-depth details?

A thickness of at least 0.5 mm is recommended for a faultless execution of both raised and deepened details in 3D models.

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

If you want to create your own 3D models, you need a 3D modelling software. Here you have a large selection of partly free, partly chargeable software at your disposal, from which you can choose according to your previous knowledge and requirements.

For beginners, Google SketchUp and Smoothie 3D software are particularly suitable, while OpenSCad and Blender are recommended for users with advanced CAD skills. If you like traditional drawing, Sculptris is recommended as 3D modelling software.

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

Can I print my own 3D models?

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

How do I upload my 3D model to the Online Configurator?

After you have registered and logged in to your reseller's store, you can click on "Select file" and upload 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 our resellers. According to your needs you can choose the offer with the best price-performance ratio or the offer with the fastest delivery.

Do I need a STL file for 3D printing?

The STL format (= Surface Tesselation Language) has established itself as the common file format for 3D files, which is why some providers on the 3D printing service market make the existence of such a file a prerequisite. We at Jellypipe, on the other hand, also offer 3D printing from other file formats, such as obj files. In addition, our specialized resellers also create printable 3D files for you from 2D files (i.e. photos or drawings). 

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 additional effort:

.3DS, .asc, .CATPart, .dxf, .exp, .igs, .model, .obj, .ply, .prt, .stl, .stp, .uvm, .wrl, .x_t, .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 transferring it to Jellypipe), so that textures and colors are no longer lost.

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

The following factors determine the price for 3D printing at our 3D printing service:

  • The amount of material, i.e. the total amount of material required for the job and the amount of material actually used for the object. These parameters are defined in the 3D files.
  • The machine 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. So you have to estimate more for silver as 3D material than for plastics.
  • The utilization of our 3D printing facilities. If these can be optimally planned, this lowers the price. If the 3D print is to be finished quickly, it will usually be more expensive, since in this case printing must be carried out without regard to optimal utilization of the system.
Are my 3D models really confidential?

With us you can be absolutely sure that no one will see your designs or the 3D models already made for you, if you do not wish this. We will be happy to assure you of this by contract.
