ABOUT US:
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.

Yes, we will do an NDA, mutual or one-way depending on the need. We have one we like to use.

We make:
Marketing scale models
Prototype parts
Low volume parts
Architectural models
Medical models
"Widgets"
Models from Thingiverse and elsewhere.

Our customers come from various areas:
Individuals
Businesses
Inventors
Entreprenuers
Architects
Lawyers
Medical
Dental

Our customers are mostly in the US but we did a large project for a customer in Russia who invented a cool remote control, remote communication pet feeder. We are open to all inquiries.

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.

EQUIPMENT:
3D printing:
Ultimaker 2+, Makerbot Original and Makerbot 2, Formlabs 1 and 2, Prusa I3 MK2s
Scanning: David 3d structured light scanner, now name HP 3D Scan.

Print resoluion, please see the equipment list for details. Sometimes customer ask for a resoluiton that is higher than necessary and will add cost, we will let you know if that is the case and suggest alternatives.

If a file is ready to print, great. That will save time and cost. Many files we have seen need some file repair and set up time. Due to this, we may have to quote a one time "set up" fee. If you have multiple copies of one part printed, there will only be one set up fee. If you are printing just one of something the set up fee could cost more than the part to be honest.

MINIMUM JOB COST:
Our minimum job cost is $25, it is not worth it for us to take on anything for less than that.

HOW THIS (including MakeXYZ) WORKS:
You upload a file or have us design one for you for $
We agree on a price and load it on MakeXYZ
MakeXYZ adds their markup to the price (this is how they make money and stay in business)
You pay online
We do the job and ship the parts or files or you pick up.

The way we price prints is pretty staightforward, it is generally tied to volume, number of parts, difficulty, and post processing.

Designwork 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,
Rich Beck

I'm glad Richard was engaged in printing of my device. Among all those who offered me 3D printing, the most reasonable price for me was Richard's , despite the fact that we are separated by thousands of miles and my town also has 3D printing services. Prototype of device consisted of more than 16 parts and some parts were large and required refactoring. Richard approached to execution of this work, that lasted more than a month, with understanding and great responsibility. Richard performed full production cycle: he printed items, checked it's stability, performance and then reworked some details to improve their reliability, while he did not even take additional payment for reprints of some components. His responsible and serious approach to business made our cooperation highly successful. Throughout the time Richard sent me photos of details and drawings improved components. A couple of weeks ago, the work has been completed and now I'm looking forward for the arrival of my items. I highly recommend Richard as a responsible executor, an expert in the field of 3D modeling and 3D printing. I am sure that cooperation with Richard will be very interesting for you and you'll get a great result. Sergey S.

Richard Beck has been excellent to work with. Rich is talented and very professional. He is easy to communicate with and listens, trying to provide exactly what you want and providing options for design and cost. He spent extra time making providing the CAD drawings in a format I could open. I highly recommend Richard for any CAD work you have. We have not done any 3D Printing yet but I plan on using Richard when I get to that phase.

Great printer service with fast delivery. Rich provided feedback on my design before print, that led to a successfully printed part, for my first 3d part. After the set of parts was printed, he provided feedback on the design to improve it's 3d printability. This helpfulness was all without any extra fees, which shows that he cares about making whatever he prints, work out. I'm a very satisfied customer and will work with Rich for my future printing needs.

I saw a 3D item on the web that I wanted and the file was available for download. I told Rich that I would like a few and he was able to print them for me in no time at a good price. My friend warned me that getting something 3D printed was going to be difficult, but Rich made it an absolute breeze! I would recommended Rich to anyone who needs 3D printing services...

Rich Beck - This one was easy to print once we found the file. It had been posted to Thingiverse and then removed to a website where you have to pay for the files. I was able to get the file from someone you had printed it before it was removed. (this was after I bought a copy of the file for a dollar).
Richard L.
Richard was great about communicating any issues/concerns to make sure the output was just what I needed. The parts came out better than I expected with an excellent surface finish. I know my parts were particularly tricky to print due to thin features, but he was able to get them done and even made recommendations to make them easier to print. You can't go wrong with this printer!

Excellent service, went above and beyond just the transaction. My daughter had a school report and presentation. I asked Rich if he could take pictures while the bookmark was being made, and not only did he take pictures, he also took a short video, which my daughter was able to use in her presentation.

Rich was most accommodating with our design and print. He offered helpful solutions to difficulties along the way. I was so impressed with the outcome, I am actually working with him right now on another sample.
