Using Your 3D Printed Product
Each 3D printed item we create is designed with care and precision to ensure a perfect blend of aesthetics and functionality. To make the most of your purchase, follow these guidelines when using your 3D printed product:
- Handle with care: Although our products are made from high-quality materials, they may still be susceptible to damage if handled roughly. Treat your 3D printed item gently and avoid dropping or placing heavy objects on it.
- Keep away from extreme temperatures: Excessive heat or cold can cause warping or other damage to your 3D printed item. Store and use it in a temperature-controlled environment.
- Avoid direct sunlight: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause fading or discoloration. Keep your 3D printed product in a shaded area to preserve its vibrant colors.
Handling, Maintenance, and Cleaning
Proper handling, maintenance, and cleaning are essential to keep your 3D printed items in good condition. By following these simple tips, you can ensure your products remain in top shape and retain their functionality and appearance for an extended period:
- Handling: Handle your 3D printed items with care, as they may be fragile depending on the material and design. When possible, avoid dropping or placing excessive pressure on your items. Support thin or delicate parts while handling to prevent accidental breakage.
- Storage: Store your 3D printed items in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, as exposure to extreme temperatures or UV rays may cause warping or discoloration. If possible, store items in a protective case or container to prevent damage from dust or accidental impact.
- Regular cleaning: Gently clean your 3D printed items with a soft cloth or brush to remove dust and debris. You can also use a can of compressed air to blow away dust from hard-to-reach areas.
- Washing: If necessary, you can wash your 3D printed items with warm water and mild soap. Avoid using hot water or harsh chemicals, as they may damage the material or the finish. Gently scrub the item with a soft brush or sponge to remove any dirt or stains. Rinse thoroughly to remove any soap residue and allow the item to air dry completely before storing or displaying it.
- Protecting the finish: To maintain the appearance of your 3D printed items, avoid placing them in contact with abrasive surfaces or materials. If your item has a painted or coated finish, take extra care not to scratch or chip the surface.
Following these simple handling, maintenance, and cleaning tips will help to prolong the life of your 3D printed products. If you have any questions or concerns about the care of your items, please feel free to reach out to our customer support team. We’re always here to help and ensure your satisfaction with our products.
