Common Questions About Our 3D Print On-Demand Service
Who is best suited for this on-demand service?
Businesses that have an infrequent need for 3D printing or are looking to try out the technology before committing to having a printer at their site.
3D printers are a vital part of Industry 4.0. Adopting this technology will bring you a step closer to creating a truly intelligent production line.
If you have more frequent needs for printing parts, you might want to consider our subscription service.
What’s included with the 3D print on-demand service? How does it work?
You’ll send us your 3D model and tell us your material and finishing requirements.
We will provide you with a price quotation, and if you agree we will go ahead print your part from one of our industrial 3D printers.
If your part needs any additional post-process machining or surface treatments, we will include it in the price and manage these steps for you before sending you the part.
What if I don’t have a 3D model of the part that I want to print?
Just let us know and we can provide you with a price quotation for digitalising the part.
We can create a 3D model using either a 2D drawing or by scanning the original part itself.

Why don’t I just buy my own 3D metal printer?
An industrial metal 3D printer can be a costly investment and to operate the machine correctly requires special training.
Furthermore, producing parts using LPBF requires software to design your support structures and manage your production.
If your company does not plan to print parts regularly, then this can be a lot to take on.
By using an on-demand printing provider like TheSteelPrinters, you save time and money, and will have peace of mind knowing that your part will be produced to the highest quality.
How do I know if 3D printing spare parts is right for my company?
If you frequently experience downtime due to waiting for replacement parts, spend a lot on maintenance or have a large spare parts inventory: you’re a good fit for 3D printing.
If you want to transition to Industry 4.0, but are wondering how to adopt 3D printing into your daily operations, or wondering whether you’re a fit for this technique; it's worth getting in touch with us.
