 STL Files 

 Phantom Hobbies supports 3d cad files that are in .STL format.

 What does the file extension .STL stand for? The true meaning of the file extension .STL has been lost to the mists of time. It’s widely believed to be an abbreviation of the word STereoLithography, though sometimes it is also referred to as “Standard Triangle Language” or “Standard Tessellation Language”.

Customer supplied STL files

  •   Working with Customer supplied STL files that need little or no adjustment are needed then there is no charge. 
  •   Scaling up or down a set of STL files to a specific scale, IE: Ho scale or N scale: $5.00 ( may be more when If there are more the 5 STL files to the model / project. )
  •  If research time id required for scaling files. This would include scaling a project to or from an obscure scale. $5.00 

Note:  Phantom Hobbies reserves the right to retain and use a copy of any STL files provided to us by our customers for internal and product development uses.

 


Designing process Custom designs 

 Custom designs fit into 3 categories. Please understand that contrary to popular belief 3D printing is some magical thing a computer dose for you and then your printer spits out a 3 dimensional object. 3D printing is sometimes thought of as a Star Trek replicator where you tell the computer what you want and it materializes in front of you.  Sadly this is so not the case. There is a fair amount of skill required. First there is what amounts to drafting the part on a computer using a CAD program. Learning CAD can be a daunting thing. Then there is the 3D printer its self.

  Each type has its own corks and attributes. There are so many variables that come in to play here. Gravity is one of the biggest that works agents us.

  Needles to say that the design process can be a lengthy thing.  While we understand that customers like your self do not want to pay an arm and a leg, designers and 3D prints do not work for free. This being said we try to give a valued service at a price you can afford while still being able to pay our mortgage.

 Price per unit

Phantom Hobbies takes into consideration the size of the project model and compares that to any existing model of that type, size, and scale that already exists in our catalog. The size of each model has a bearing on the price as well. The amount of resin the model uses also has a direct bearing on final unit price. Orders congaing several units may be subject to a price break.
