When clients use MakerLab Silicone Molding printers it is best practice to arrive with a printable '.STL' file, ready for use. Silicone molding manufacturing requires a consultation even if an '.STL' file is provided by the client. In the case the client provides their own '.STL' file they will be charged a consultation fee of $50. In the case that a client cannot provide their own ready-to-use '.STL' file or they require the assistance of a prototype engineer, they will be charged a minimum consultation and design fee of $100. This fee may increase depending on the complexity of the client's design and will be denoted before the CAD design process begins.Even if a printable '.STL' file is provided by the client before manufacturing, a consultation is necessary to use the manufacturing process listed below.
Without .'STL' File: $100+
