and want it to be full solid (infill: 100%), you can highlight it in your order form, under comment.
As different specification will result in different printing time, a different specification requested by you will also result in a different cost. Just submit your order form and wait for the printer you engaged to get back to you on the final cost!
During this page, you can also choose for your product to be shipped to you or you can arrange for a meet up with your printer. Shipping costs will also be updated after your printer has confirmed your order.

R3D’s recommended minimum printing specifications are based on the models’ function and its feasibility. In gist, what we recommend to be printed at that specification is sturdy enough for its intended purpose. E.g. a GoPro mount will be normally printed at full solid (100% infill), while a decor piece like this Bulbasaur planter will not (20% infill).
We recommend that you use our specifications; let us worry about the technical stuffs, you just enjoy your shopping spree here! 😉
