My name is Andrew Rogers and I represent an online service bureau called printapart.com. Our company offers 3-D Printing services through an online interface. Our website accepts Stereolithography files (*.STL) that were output from your 3-D CAD Package (ex. AutoCAD 3D or SolidWorks). Our system takes your STL file, processes it and gives you an instant price quote with a ship date. We will then build your parts on our 3-D Printer, finish and ship them to you.

Our standard timeframe for shipping your parts is next day. We also offer an express service which will build, finish and ship your parts in the same day (if ordered before 11am EST). We also have an economy service which will save you money, but your ship date will be 3-5 business days from the time you place your order.

Printapart.com uses 3-D printers that are made by 3D Systems, Inc. The machines are called InVision HR 3-D printers. These machines work much like an ordinary desktop inkjet printer, except that they build with a third dimension. Quite simply, our InVision HR system creates your 3-D part or model using tiny droplets of a special polymer "ink" jetted into place according to your 3-D design, each droplet flash-cured by ultraviolet light before the release of the next. Your part is thus built, dot by precision dot, in very high resolution—656 dots per inch in the drawing plane, 800 layers per inch of height. Thus, we are able to create prototype pieces with very small, fine features, such as jewelry, medical devices, and electronic connectors.

Please visit our website, http://www.printapart.com for more information about services. You may also send me an email to Andrew@printapart.com or give me a call at (919)781-7702, ext. 116 if you have questions that our website cannot answer.

Here are some links to a few documents that might answer more of your questions:

Hello Andrew,

Welcome to the planet!

We met Andrew and Spanky at the 06 IPMS Nats. They had a display of some of their remarkable printed parts at the show.

Since then we have had several items 3D printed by them, and the parts and service is beyond first rate.

They are the ones who print our LVT tracks!!
