    So many questions! I have two inventions on the go that each require a small, circular and tapered plastic extrusion that is about 15mm in diameter at its widest and 150 mm long. I have handbuilt the original and I have a really good 3d scanner that has produced fantastic 3d graphics and data for these and so to keep the design reasonably secret I am thinking of buying a 3d printer, one, to produce prototype pieces for further research and two, to produce copies of the final design in reasonable numbers. Can you give me any idea of the speed that 3d printers work at or how long it would take to produce a single item described above and whether they can run continuously without damage? I like the look of your larger model and your informative website plus of course the fact that you are in NZ so if your answer to my query is at all favourable I would like to come up to Auck to have a more indepth discussion on the subject especially relating to materials and their properties. Sorry this is so long winded.

      Hi John,

      Sorry for the delay in response! It looks like the email notification of your comment got lost somewhere in the wires.
      Our 3D printers can print an object that size quite quickly – around 15 minutes using medium quality settings. Some parts of the object might be too small to get good resolution on, though – email to discuss this confidentially.
      Our printers can run continuously no problem – it’s common for us to run a printer for days at a time without stopping, and can print multiple objects at the same time so you don’t have to keep starting and stopping. Feel free to stop by our workshop next time you’re in Auckland!
