Beginners guide


I am just beginning my adventure with 3D printing

In order to place an order at Printelize you need a 3D model in the form of an STL file. The STL format is a standard in 3D printing industry. The file contains the vector description of your model. You can create an STL file by using many different programms, both free and paid, such as: Google SketchUp, Tinkercard czy te┼╝ Blender. The STL files are very important as they include all significant information about your model and they are uploaded to the 3D printers. The printers prepare your prints based on the information from those files.

Designing 3D models can be quite easy and it can be very difficult. It depends on your current experience with graphical software and the complexity level of the designed model. In addition, when designing 3D models there are a number of rules that need to be followed, as they usually are tightly connected with the chosen 3D printing technology.

If you want to learn how to design objects for the purpose of 3D printing, you can take advantage of our training courses offer.

I am interested in 3D printing topics and want to know more

Feel free to familiarize yourself with our 3D printing training courses offer.

I need to have something desinged and printed in 3D

We understand that you don't want to know all the intricacies of 3D printing and do not want to design anything yourself. You have a specific need: you may lack the broken part of your refrigerator or maybe you are an architect, who needs to materialize his idea. Regardless, whether you are an individual or business Customer, contact us, and we will do whatever we can to help you.

I don't have an STL file, I don't want to create one, I want to use a ready-to-use model

Nothing could be simpler. The Internet is full of free and paid directories with ready-to-use 3D models. A few of the most popular ones are listed below:

I have an STL file with the model and I want to order it printed

Great! Then you can evaluate the print here.
