|response time||within an hour|
I am the owner of Printed Solid, located at 2850 Ogletown Rd, in Newark, DE 19713. You can find our most current hours on Google Maps. We like dealing with customers in person, but are willing to ship anywhere within the US.
Contact us for a quote. As a rule of thumb, printed plastic prices are $0.50 for 200 micron and higher, $0.75 for 100 micron, and $1.50 for 50 micron for ABS or PLA. All PLA prints are done with colorFabb PLA/PHA, which is tougher and slightly more flexible than standard PLA. Alternately, we can use a high temperature PLA which provides use up to about 80C for a slight premium. Price for a mostly hollow part with no support required will be less per CC where a highly dense part requiring support may cost more.
Nylon, woodfilled PLA, PET, carbon fiber filled PLA, bronze filled PLA, and engineering grade material are also available.
We now also offer colorFabb XT, which is a clear, extremely strong PET based material. This has a use temp up to about 85C and is strong with good flexibility. Consider this instead of ABS for most applications.
Design work is provided on an hourly basis.
Why would you want to work with me?
I am a mechanical engineer with around 20 years of experience in the areas of product design, equipment design, process engineering, and failure analysis in the aerospace, medical, and electronics industries. I am super responsive and will put in the extra effort required to always deliver at a promised deadline.
I also run a filament supply business, so I have a wide selection of colors and materials on hand at all times. As part of that business, I consult with other printers on what material may be the most appropriate choice for their own application, so material specification is a particular area of expertise.
I have over a dozen printers from Ultimaker, printrbot, BCN, Mass Portal, Lulzbot, Robo3D, Zmorph, and even a few more. Each has it's strengths and weaknesses. If you're looking for a printer and want a sample run, we can do that for you as well or you can come into the shop to try it out yourself. If you're local and decide you want to move forward with purchase of that printer, we can supply it to you locally to save you the hassle of shipping and can also provide you with training to help get over the new printer learning curve.
