Upload issues?

My file is too big

Your 3D design file must be less than 20mb. If it is not, go to Tools, Options, File types, STL Output settings and try increasing the Normal deviation or Surface deviation values. (This will reduce the resolution of your model so after you upload it, check that it looks okay in our online product visualization tool.)

Too hard?

Get in touch with us - and attach your design. We'll get back to you as soon as we can with a fix.
