At Voodoo Manufacturing, we use standard settings for infill percentage, number of shells, roof and floor thickness, and layer height. Our standards are in place to ensure durability while optimizing your printing costs.
Infill is what is inside your 3D printed object. A 3D print will have watertight walls that create the shape. What we use to fill the inside of your object so it will be strong and steady, is the infill. Infills can go up to 100%. The higher the percentage, the more material is inside your object.
Our infill standard in Direct Print orders is 10% for Regular-Format printing and 10% for Large-Format printing.
The thickness of the walls around your object is created by shells. The more shells, the thicker your object walls will be.
Our wall thickness standard in Direct Print orders is 2 shells (0.4mm per shell) for Regular-Format printing and 2 shells (0.4mm per shell) for Large-Format printing.
Floor and Roof:
Floor and roof refer to the top and the bottom of your object (based on how it is oriented for print).
Our standard floor and roof thickness in Direct Print orders is 0.8mm.
Layer height refers to the thickness of each line of filament that composes your print. The lower the thickness, the higher the resolution.
Our standard layer height in Direct Print orders is 0.2mm for Regular-Format printing and 0.3mm for Large-Format printing.
Different infill percentages, number of shells, floor and roof thickness, and layer heights (resolution) are currently only available for Volume Print orders since the cost of each print would be calculated differently due to the increase in print time and material utilized. Volume Print orders start at around $1K.
