As a guide, we charge a base fee of £35 (inc VAT) for print services (which includes delivery of your parts).

For our FDM machine, this initial fee includes 20cm3 of ABS model material, with each additional 20cm3 of model material adding a volume charge of £17.50 (inc VAT). We will return prints with the support material removed (we dissolve the support away).
