A technology business background and an engineering mind with a creative/artistic bent, what more can you need? At E3 Digital Fab, we can take your file as is, modify and/or fix it, or design your idea from scratch.
Marketing scale models
Low volume parts
Models from Thingiverse and elsewhere.
Our customers come from various areas:
Medical and Dental
Our customers are mainly in the US though we have exported international locations (and did the customs paperwork).
If you need a few parts made for some project and they are ready to go, send them to us to take a look. We will evaluate it and tell you if we can do it and what it would cost. We will also tell you if there are better options.
3D printing: FDM (Filament) and Resin printers.
Scanning: HP/David 3d structured light scanner.
MINIMUM JOB COST:
Our minimum job cost is $25.
HOW THIS (including MakeXYZ) WORKS:
1. You upload a file or have us design one for you for $
2. We agree on a price and load it on MakeXYZ
3. MakeXYZ adds their 20% markup to the price (this is how they make money and stay in business)
4. You pay online
5. We do the job and ship the parts or files or you pick up.
The way we price prints is pretty straight forward, it is generally tied to volume, number of parts, difficulty, and post processing.
Design work and scanning can be priced on an hourly or project basis.
ABOUT DESIGN WORK:
On the design side, you may see lots of people charging $25/hour or less. For some designers and customers that will be a bargain, for others it won't. We only take jobs that we feel we can add value to and are within are capabilities. No, we won't sculpt your next action figure from scratch, that's not our area of expertise. We are digital engineers more than digital artists. Our clients have found that while we may charge more per hour than what they might find elsewhere on this site, or on a place like Freelancers.com, our abilities combined with our technical background and years of experience often result in better output for less real $ cost and opportunity cost overall. When you count the cost of your time having to answer many questions or make many corrections to a design because the designer is technically competent on the design tool but has no industry knowledge the savings really add up.
We hope all this convinces you to give us a shot, we would be glad to work with you, and will do our utmost to delight you.
Thanks for your time and consideration,
