What file formats do you accept?
We prefer to accept .STL files, as our machines run best using this format. We also accept .OBJ and VRML (.WRL) files. It is best to “save as” or export a .STL file for use in 3D printing.

.OBJ – .OBJ file is a geometry definition file format similar to .STL and used and developed from the animation industry.

.STL – .STL is commonly referred to as stereolithography and is widely used for rapid prototyping and computer-aided manufacturing. .STL files describe only the surface geometry of a three-dimensional object without any representation of color or texture.

.WRL – .WRL is an extension of the .VRML virtual reality model language file format. It contains the colour and texture maps needed to be printed in relation to the objects 3D surfaces. For example a bust of a person or a family pet.

How much does 3D Printing cost?
It could be a little, and it could be extremely high. Depends on the way you carry it; the costs may vary. If you manage to buy a 3D printer, it might cost a bit much at first, but you can rely on its fast ROI in long term. If you need 3D printing once in a while, using 3D printing services company is less risky and much cheaper. It’s also depends on the product and material you desire to print. Plastics are always cheaper than metals.
What colors does Stratasys J750 3D printer support?
The Stratasys J750 3D Printer supports more than 500.000 colors plus Pantone trademarked colors. The Polyjet technology enables you to print anything just as you desire, sometimes even better! Being able to print 6 different materials at once give you the power to customize your prototype just as the final product you ever wanted!
Is my file kept confidential?
Yes. We will never share your file with a third party without your consent!

3D Printing Services and Products

What is 3D printing?
3D printing is process of making an object through a 3D file (or a digital file). It starts by designing an object by a design software (e.g. 3DS Max or Rhinoceros). After completing, the designer needs to convert the file format suitable for 3D Printing (like .STL). After that, the designer uploads that file into the 3D printer’s software. This software prepares the file for printing, and finally can be 3D printed by operator’s command.
What is the best 3D Printer in the world?
Here is no single best 3D Printer, instead we have some best 3D Printers! For example, FDM 3D Printers are among the cheapest 3D printers on the market and is best for learning and head start. On the other hand, Polyjet 3D Printers are one of the most sophisticated and expensive ones in the market and are able to print REAL full-color multi-material in one single printing operations. These printers are good for Animators, Fashion designers, concept designers, product developers and medical devices maker.
What can I print at 3DMan Studio?
We can print just about anything you need and to your specifications.
Do you offer 3D scanning?
We offer a full complement of 3D scanning and imaging services. Do you need to scan a historical artefact, sculpture, or medical application? We can help with that and more!
What is the difference between Additive manufacturing and 3D Printing?
Generally speaking, there is no difference. But according to Markforged “3D printing is a subset of Additive manufacturing”. People see no difference between them but “3D Printer” is way easier to understand than “Additive manufacturing system”. We can conclude that the term 3D Printing is a more common way to demonstrate a making method which is done layer by layer.
What 3D Printing method is suitable for Stop-motion animation making?
Polyjet 3D Printing have proved to be the best method in order to make a stop-motion animation. Caroline the movie was produced by Polyjet 3D Printing. 3D Printers like Stratasys J750 use Polyject 3D printing technology. This printer is now available by us: 3DMan Studios in Toronto CANADA!
I have an idea… Can you design it for me?
While it is best to have a completed, print-ready file, 3DMan Studio does offer design, customization and file repair services. Please contact us for a quote.
How can I use a 3D printer as a fashion designer?
