Print Info
  • In order to be able to print this summary, you must type text (i.e., Printer Type - Model # - Male - DD-MMM-YYYY version.GCODE filename) into "Job Name."
  • Input the "Printing Time" and "Filament Weight" from the 3D slicing program.
  • If you are using a Prusa 3D printer, upload the GCODE file for that Prusa 3D printer and this will automatically populate the "Printing Time" and "Filament Weight."
  • For Filament Type, select "PLA."
  • Fill in the "Spool Price" and "Spool Weight" values of your locally available white PLA filament.
  • For the "Markup" option, we recommend up to a 20% markup on the total filament cost to cover the machine and upkeep costs. Our models have been previously tested so the potential risk of print failures and wasted filament is low.
Electricity Cost.png
  • If known, fill in local values for the "Power Consumption" and "Electricity Cost."
  • Otherwise, leave the "Optional" slider button to the left.
Labor Cost.png
Labor Cost

Fill in labor costs, if any. Otherwise, leave the "Optional" slider button to the left.

To minimize labor costs for print preparation, we have provided the 3D model file, pre-tested print settings, and even the GCODE files for some 3D printers.

To minimize material, equipment and labor costs for post-processing, all the 3D printed bone models are designed to:

  • print without support material, rafts or brims
  • require no cleaning, sanding, gluing, priming, painting, dipping, coating, smoothing, polishing, or any post-processing
  • not require any non-3D printed parts, and
  • be ready for use right out of the 3D printer.[1]
Machine & Upkeep Costs.png
Machine & Upkeep Cost

Leave the "Optional" slider button to the left because this cost has already been factored into the "Markup" in the Filament step.

Print Summary.png
Other Costs
  • Include delivery costs in "Other Costs" if the consignee is not picking up the models.
  • If you are using a delivery service, obtain an estimate of the delivery timeframe for the consignee.

If applicable, add local taxes in "VAT."
