It is an enabling technology that supplements traditional manufacturing and crafting.
Originally known as additive manufacturing, 3D Printing works by depositing hundreds or thousands of layers of a given material onto a platform or ‘bed’, according to a design, to form an object that has length, breadth and height. The term 3D Printing refers to many different technologies following the same principle, but adjusted to the different printing requirements of different materials.
Everywhere our Ginkgo3D community is located, and that includes you! If you are not a designer, please access Designing Options for more details on how to do it (easily) yourself or find a professional 3DP expert to help design it for you.
Ginkgo3D uses industrial strength 3D printers to create the products in the materials, sizes and finishes that you specify and may access our printing facilities locally or overseas to ensure that you get the best print of your product at the highest value for your money and at the shortest possible time.

Different vendors use different carriers, so they will list their usual shipping timeframes when you make a purchase from their store.
We apologise, but separate orders cannot be combined. However, if your earlier order has not gone into production, you can cancel it and make a new order with all your products in it.
We do not have an expedited production/delivery programme, but we will carry out such orders wherever possible. Expedited production and delivery may incur a service surcharge.
Our platform serves as a means of communication between customers and vendors, so shipping is handled by our vendors personally and up to their discretion.
