3D Design Work Estimate (FREE)

Do you have an idea for a part that you can't buy at any store? Don't worry! We can design and make it for you!

Please be as accurate as possible so that we can estimate the work as well as possible. Remember to add important measurements also to images. Width, height and depth are mandatory. Remember also to tell us if your image is in scale or not.

If you already have your own 3D model we can use it for manufacturing.

If the 3D model design work is only modifying your existing model it may reduce the costs.

 

We accept *.STL, *.OBJ or .ZIP files - if you are not sure how to convert (please zip all bigger than 2Mb files)

your file to the right format please contact sales@playfulpixels.com and we will help you.

Measurement accuracy has a significant effect on modeling costs so please be thorough in defining these points.

It is important to describe thoroughly those areas where accurate dimensions are crucial and leave other areas more loosely defined because too tight accuracy requirements will only bring up costs unnecessarily.

Explain in your own words how the modeled part will be fitted into other parts and the entire structure. e.g. what parts need to fit with connected parts and which surfaces will touch other parts (from tightest to loosest fit: hammering into place, screwing into place, tight fit that can be put in place manually only once, comfortable manual fit that can be removed and put back in several timea).

Please define if you have any other special needs for the item. Define clearly if any parts of your item have to be flexible or if some details have to handle strong forces without breaking.

Remember that the more accurate you are in your description the easier it is for us to design the right part for your needs.

*

About 90% of our prints are made of PLA. It is a cheap and quite durable natural oil free (based on corn) plastic material that is available in all colors.

If you need extreme durability and flexibility we suggest using much more valuable Polycarbonate (PC) or even short fiber carbon fiber.

More information about all available materials.

Normally we handle all requests within a few hours to a few days. Sometimes if all designers are busy the estimation can take up to 5 days. If you are in a rush you can order a Rushed estimate. Then we will guarantee that you will get the estimate in 24h.

Do you have an idea for a part that you can't buy at any store? We can design and make it for you!

Maybe you already have drawings (not mandatory). Any images reduce the design costs. It is best if you have 2D/3D cad images.

NOTE! If you have a broken item that you want to replace please select the Work estimate for replacement part

 

Many projects?

If you have many projects please create separate orders for all of them (don't add many projects into one estimate order).

We would like to give you a rough estimate about the costs before you order an accurate estimate from us so that you will get a hunch about the costs. The table below shows a few common examples and prices.
