How Does it Work?
1. Upload model
First you must upload a 3D print model (.stl, obj, .dae or.wrl). Below is a list of good places to find D print models, if you don’t have a 3D print model of your own.
2. Compare prices
You can filter results by material & finish, color, and 3D printing service. The best 3D printing price is always listed at the top
3. Place order

Which 3D Printing File Formats are Supported?
We support the following file formats: .stl, .obj, .dae, and .wrl. These file formats can be handled by all of our partner 3D printing services. For full color 3D prints you can upload a ZIP archive, containing only one full color 3D model file (.obj + .mtl, .dae or .wrl) and related texture files (.jpg, .gif or .png). PLEASE NOTE: The .stl file format does not contain color information.
How can I Convert my 3D Model File to a Supported Format?
- You can use an online conversion tool like meshconvert.com or greentoken.de
- You convert it with the free Meshlab conversion tool.
- You can import your 3D print model into free 3D modeling software like Sketchup, FreeCad or Blender — or a professional tool like Autodesk, Rhino or Solidworks — and then export into a supported file format.

What is the Maximum Supported File Size for a 3D Print Model
Currently, it is 64 MB.
What is the Meaning of “Full-Color 3D Print Model”?
It’s important to note that the .stl file format does not contain color information. For .stl files, the only color option is the color of the material.
But if you would like to have a 3D print in full color, then you must have a 3D print model containing color information. You can upload a ZIP archive containing a full color 3D model file (.obj + .mtl, .dae or .wrl) and related texture files (.jpg, .gif or .png). Now you can choose a full-color material.
Remember, .stl files will not work for this option.
