3dprintingod Ltd. Terms and Conditions

Last updated:  2021

The following are terms and conditions of a legal agreement between you and 3dprintingod. These terms and conditions govern your use of our services, By using the 3dprintingod website and service, you acknowledge to have read, understood and agree to be bound by these “Terms and Conditions” and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions, you should not use 3dprintingod Services or Website.

3dprintingod Services

The 3dprintingod Services. 

If you want to turn your 3D model into a real object, you can place an order with us to have it manufactured. We manufacture all parts to the specification. 

If your model is not manufacturable or has features that may lead to unsatisfactory results, we will contact you and advise the changes that need to be made. If changes are not possible, a refund can be given providing that manufacturing has not commenced.

The software we use checks your model for manufacturability. Models that do not meet QC standards for 3D printing need to be inspected & might not be able to turn your model into one that can be manufactured. Most files require fixing, and in many cases, they will be done FREE OF CHARGE by 3dprintingod, though some models require complete modification/redesign. Professional services are available through 3dprintingod for an additional fee, also in combination with the 3D prints of your model. By purchasing Professional services you will reduce, but not completely mitigate, the risks related to the potential non or limited-manufacturability of your model and the limits of the 3D printing technology, which might lead to unsatisfactory results of 3D-print.

It must be noticed that the software we use checks printability of your model/models and – if it is possible – automatically repairs them to the best of the software's ability. A model that successfully passes our software’s check for printability, either before or after having been repaired, might still be non-printable. We do routine checks on all models and will advise, but we shall not be held responsible for any loss, damage or costs incurred if the model has features that are outside the guidelines on the Basic Rules For STL files.

Ordering

1: Placing an order/Getting a quote
for a print of a model you designed or that you found on the internet, start by emailing the model's STL file. Then you can request the turn around time frame you want the model to be made as well as additional services. The next step, we ask you to provide us with information for delivery of the model. Please be keep in mind that the language to be used throughout the whole ordering process is English. Quotes are valid for 15 days from the date of issue.

2: Unacceptable orders, cancellation of orders,
There may be technical or other reasons why we are unable to accept or have to cancel your order throughout the whole ordering process, even after our acceptance of your order. (unforeseeable reasons for example but not limited to the unfeasibility of the model, the features of your file/model, the destination of the delivery you indicated in your order etc.) In the event that 3dprintingod cancel your order you will contact you via email.

Any functioning weapon or parts from weapons will not be printed. Any parts for weapons concealed or disguised as other parts in an attempt to bypass this rule will remain the responsibility of the person(s) who upload the files and they will be held liable for any legal actions as a result of the printing.

3: Prices
The prices given are based on pricing current economics (example but not limited to material price fluctuation, additives, specific additions for finishing works...) of the Turnaround time you choose. turnaround times are only valid for the day that they are given. 3dprintingod reserves the right to change prices without prior notice. Such changes, however, will have no effect on orders completed before the posting of new pricing. We do our best to prevent errors in the pricing. However, in the event an error occurs, we are not bound by our estimate/quote in any way and may cancel the order.

4: Price
Payment must be made in full prior to printing. Lead times for the printing process start on completion of payment. 

5: Acceptance

The order confirmation will be effective as of the date on which the order is confirmed. If we cannot accept your order, we will contact you by email. If for any reason there are any errors you should contact us as soon as possible by EMAIL.

6: Amendments to Order including Adding files/Changing or editing files
After payment of the order, there can be no changes to the files or processes, excluding the addition or removal of post-processing services. Any changes are subject to a £10.00 + VAT admin charge which must be paid for before the change comes into effect.

7: Lead Times
Lead times are only estimates and NO WAY ANY FORM OF guaranteed. Infrequent and unpredictable factors like machine failure, power cuts & unforeseeable natural disasters may cause orders to be delayed by a number of days/weeks. but no full refunds are given.

In case of doubt, check the delivery address. We are not liable for any damage or cost caused by delay in shipping or delivery.

Change of shipping address is permitted, however, your model will be placed at the back of the queue for printing and lead times will begin from the date of the address change unless otherwise stated.

9: Cancellation of your order, return of models
Due to the nature of our Services, you will be unable cancel your order after it goes into production. any cancellations must be received within 48 hours. Failure in sending 3dprintingod written confirmation of the cancellation will result in the order being added to that month’s accounts.

We are not responsible for your design should it not work or not fit the designed purpose unless what we provide is substantially dimensionally different to what has been supplied to us in STL format.

10: Minimum Guaranteed Thickness
Parts are guaranteed with a minimum wall thickness of 1 mm. We will print things thinner than 1 mm, but it is at your own risk. If these break in our hands, your hands, during delivery, or lost during the cleaning process, it will not be covered or reprinted for free. Although we do our best to check over every single model for printing, sometimes thinner parts can be missed, 3dprintingod will not be held responsible if the parts are missed and printed anyway which results in a failed or broken part.

11: Post Processing
Our post processing services, which include additional processes to the manufacturing time and lead times that are stated. If you agree to use these services then you accept that an additional 1 working day, per service, may be added to the lead time if as required.

12: Use of 3rd Party Companies
In certain circumstances, it may be necessary for 3dprintingod to use a 3rd party company to complete orders or certain aspects of a job. e.g. finishing work. 3dprintingod cannot be held responsible if there are any problems or extended lead times due to a 3rd party. Although we strive to complete jobs within the times stated per job, we can not always guarantee these times.

13: Delays to Order

In some very rare circumstances there may be a delay to your order, in these circumstances there may be a number of reasons which include, but are not limited to; failure of Quality Control due to damage, machine failure, power cuts and natural disasters. If one or more of these issues were arise, we will re-print the affected models, but this could cause delays to the order while we await the reprints. As these problems are unforeseeable, 3dprintingod accepts no responsibility for missed deadlines and is unable to offer a refund or any form of compensation. 

15: Part Accuracy

Although FFF/FDM 3D printing is generally considered to be an accurate way of 3D printing, 3dprintingod does not guarantee any part to any degree of accuracy, this is because some parts can suffer from uncontrollable shrinkage due to their geometry which 3dprintingod cannot always consult on before the printing commences. However, most parts are within +/- 0.3 mm’s of the original dimensions. No reprints will be offered if a part falls within the stated tolerances. If a part does fall outside of these tolerances, it is at the discretion of 3dprintingod as to whether the part will be reprinted. For more information on parts that are susceptible to warping please contact us via email before requesting any order.

Anything that is under our 1mm thickness is not covered at all to any level of accuracy.

16: Reprinting

In the rare cases that orders must be reprinted due to issues with the printed parts, all received items must be shipped back to 3dprintingod, costs incurred are the responsibility of the client returning the package.

3dprintingod will not begin the reprinting or refund of any order until the package/packages have been received and assessed for damage or any other anomalies. For this reason, 3dprintingod recommends that orders are returned only via a tracked and recorded delivery service so that both parties have a record of the order being returned.

If 3dprintingod believes that the parts originally supplied conform to our Terms and Conditions and were agreed upon in the order Disclaimer, 3dprintingod will declare the order fit for purpose and will provide an explanation on the reasons why. No refund or reprint will be offered in this instance. Redelivery of the order is the responsibility of the client.

Any refunds or reprints that are agreed upon will be completed in a timely manor unless otherwise stated, refunds or reprints are normally completed as quickly as is feasibly possible.

17: Issues with Order/Complaints

Any issues that arise from any order that is placed with 3dprintingod, must be made within 7 working days of the order being received. Failing to do so will waive all rights to any reprints or refunds. 3dprintingod advises that you check all parts of your order when they arrive for any faults or issues regarding its service.

Warranty

As 3dprintingod is independent of the design of the part, 3dprintingod offers NO warranty on any parts and does not insure against design in any way.

Though 3D printing is an excellent and cost-effective way to manufacture low volume and one-off items, the quality and price are unlikely to match those of mass-produced items. *Misunderstanding of strength*, *surface finish* and *cost* are not grounds for a refund in any case.

3DPRINTINGOD MAKES NO WARRANTY OTHER THAN THOSE MADE EXPRESSLY IN THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, 3DPRINTINGOD HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. SOME STATES OR COUNTRIES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Fit for Purpose

All parts that 3DPRINTINGOD produce are made to a suitable standard. However, 3DPRINTINGOD stresses that any part manufactured for any other purpose than that of prototyping should be submitted for testing by the relevant regulating bodies. 3DPRINTINGOD accepts no responsibility for parts used for any other purpose than prototyping. 3DPRINTINGOD recommends that parts are certified for their use and deemed fit for purpose.
