The best way to send your data is by using our contact form. INPUT FORMATS –STL*, OBJDF, SLC, IGES, STEP, and generic CAD Files (note – STL is the optimal format for speed of turnaround) File compression types used include EXE, ZIP, SIT and MGX. If using e-mail to send data, using a compression format reduces the file size by up to 80%.
It is important that your data files are compacted to allow them to be successfully e-mailed and quickly downloaded through our server. Files should be zipped before sending. We can accept files up to a size of 5MB. If your files are larger than this, please telephone us first to make appropriate arrangements for them to be accepted through the server.
Generally, from receipt of usable data, we have the capability to turn parts around in 24-72 hours, subject to current workloads and prior agreement.
Your prototype can either be supplied in its raw state, ie. white, or we can produce it with a permanent surface colouring from a standard range of colours.
