i.Materialise in 24 Hours

By on April 9th, 2011 in Service


3D print service i.Materialise announced a new program to dramatically speed up delivery of printed items. You know the scene – you design a brilliant 3D model, send it to the service and then you wait for many days before the result is sitting in your hands. 
If you live in Europe you’ll actually receive your object within 24 hours. Add another day for shipment to North America and another day for European shipment. This is pretty good – but what’s the catch?
Basically they’ve imposed a set of straightforward restrictions on your print, including size (10x10x10 cm), material (Polyamide Priority only). And then there’s the matter of a 30% surcharge for priority. However, if you can get through all that, you can indeed get quick prints.
