Type of 3D files:

Although we prefer STL(.stl) files, color files need to be submitted via VRML(.wrl). The Dimension Printer uses only STL(.stl) files, but the color printer can print both formats.

Size Limits:

Dimension SST 1200es: The part(s) can be no bigger than 10 x 10 x 12 inches and no thinner than .013 inches. Anything thinner is prone to warping and breakage.

ZCorp 650 Color Printer: The part(s) can be no bigger than 10 x 15 x 8 inches and no thinner than .004 inches. Anything thinner is prone to breakage.

Data size limits:

We are still testing the file size limits. We can definitely accept anything below 100MB and have had success with files up to 300MB, but we are uncertain how much bigger we can go from there. Please contact us if you have a large file you'd like to try.
