Our FDM manufacturing standards

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

  • A dimensional accuracy of ± 0.5% with a lower limit of ± 0.5 mm (± 0.020")
  • 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.
