- Do I need a printed metal part, or printed sand molds or cores for making a casting?
ExOne offers Parts on Demand using either metal or sand specialty printing systems. Letting us know what your needs are will help us route your quote request most effectively.
- Will I require a finished casting or other finishing services?
ExOne® Parts on Demand are “near-net” meaning some finishing may be desired or required, whether for a printed metal part or for a sand casting. ExOne offers a full array of finishing and casting services to meet your needs. Please contact us for details.
- Will I need assistance with creating a digital file?
ExOne accepts a wide range of digital modeling file types, though STL is most preferred, and files can be easily uploaded via our Request a Quote form. If you need assistance creating a file that is suitable for 3D printing, please inquire about our design services.
- How quickly do I need my part(s)?
Standard lead time for printed sand cores and molds are 5-7 working days. For printed metal parts, 14 working days. Rush services are available.
- How many do I need?
The binder jetting process is the most economical choice for 3D printing Parts on Demand. And lots of 1 can be just as efficient as lots of 1,000. Additionally, iterative or individually customized parts can be printed in a single print run.
