3D printing makes learning geometry and solid modeling much more fun. That’s why NCLab is launching a new non-profit 3D printing service on Jan 1, 2013 – you pay just for material and shipping.
Starting with Basic Plan, NCLab users can benefit from a complimentary non-profit 3D printing service that we have established to support your creativity. You pay just for the material and shipping, which on average is 50% less compared to ShapeWays or iMaterialize. This applies to your own designs only – we do not sell pre-printed 3D designs for profit.
How Does It Work?
It is very simple: Create a great 3D design in NCLab using PLaSM. If you like geometry, you will find 3D solid modeling extremely easy, exciting, and rewarding.
Next, either share your design with the user “nclab” or save the STL file to your hard disk and post it somewhere to the web, and send us a link. Do not send STL files as email attachments, they tend to be very large. Our email is support(at)nclab(dot)com.
We will check the STL file for correctness, measure the volume, and send you a quotation. The price for white plastic is $10 per cubic inch, and the volume is rounded up to half inches. Handling and shipping is $10 per order. Currently, we ship to U.S. mailing addresses only.
