Techniplas Additive Manufacturing Innovation Center Request System
The Techniplas AMIC request system allows you get instant feedback on the cost of a project. The following hints will help you get the most out of this tool. The “How it works” links to a video of the process.
1. Uploading Models
You must upload all models you want to evaluate before proceeding to the next step. The format .stl is recommended. Please save the .stl file with the coordinate system desired for fabrication (Z-axis for building), considering the needs for supports and critical features of size.
2. Choosing Process and Material
You need to choose process, material, and quantity for each model before moving on. The quote is based, in part, on the bounding box taken in the coordinate system of the model.
Once you confirm the material, settings, quantity, and other options for the model, add it to the cart. Select the next model from the drop-down menu at the top and finish once you have added all the models to the cart.
Materials are assigned to specific printer models in the quote engine. If you have a message the part does not fit, please check the material is for the machine you wish to be used, and the orientation of the model is appropriate.
3. Special Instructions
Please attach drawings if available. Parts will be shipped “product of the process” unless technical requirements, such as tolerances, are provided. Some parts may require addition of machining stock.
Please also mention any project deadlines.
We can usually accommodate non-standard process settings or materials. In that case just list what you need in the next step and we will prepare a proposal.
4. Contact and Delivery Information
We will contact the person identified by phone and email in case of any issue. Please include your country code in the phone number.
If the shipping and billing addresses are different, please check “This is a company order”.
5. Summary and Checkout
Please review the summary and click on “Next Step” to place the order. If you didn’t intend to submit the order, you can contact us at AMIC@xponentialworks.com to cancel it. You should receive an order confirmation email.
