3D Print Pricing

For standard resin types: $0.33/mL of resin ($5 minimum)

  • Prints include a base and supports. The amount of resin used for the base/supports will be included in the total volume.
  • While it is possible to use save resin by either minimizing the number of supports or by reducing their diameter, KPIF staff have the sole discretion to refuse adjustments to any print if they feel such alteration may otherwise compromise the integrity of the print or the printing hardware.
