All of Gambody's 3D models are adapted for all types of printers - there are versions for FFF/FDM, DLP/SLA, and SLS types. This means that practical aspects of printing the model using each technology are taken into account, and the model's scale and cutting are chosen to ensure an optimum result of printing. Moreover, the recommended settings are given on each model's page on Gambody marketplace (tab "Printing Details”). Make sure to use the settings that correspond with your chosen software before printing and you will get an excellent 3D printed model.
3D printing models on Gambody are designed so that static models and parts of assembly models could fit into 150 mm x 150 mm print bed. 3D models STL files of which we offer on our marketplace come in specific scales. For 3D models of huge objects (like Godzilla, for example), the scale 1/250 of the original size is used for FDM versions and 1/500 for DLP/SLA versions. Similarly, for 3D models of mechs (BattleTech universe), the scale options are 1/60 for the FDM version and 1/100 for the DLP/SLA version. Finally, for 3D models of human or human-like characters, the scale is 1/8 for FDM versions and 1/16 for DLP/SLA versions respectively. So, you see that the DLP/SLA versions of the 3D models are normally two times smaller than FDM versions. The reason behind it is the fact that printing with DLP/SLA technology is much more expensive. Models printed with FDM technology are pretty big, since the filament for FDM printers is cheaper, and they are divided into many parts to fit an average print bed. That is why you can be sure that almost any 3D printer will be suitable for printing 3D models from our marketplace.
You should also know that when making a purchase on Gambody marketplace, you get not only STL files of a high-poly 3D printable model but also full technical support for it for life (included in the model’s price). If you need to cut the model otherwise for better printing, remodel some model parts, improve the level of detail, or move an embossed watermark from the centre to the bottom of the 3D model’s support base - we are always ready to help with all these.
Many of our customers post the results of printing in our Gambody – 3D Printing Gaming Community, it’s here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/183216945475583. They sometimes indicate which 3D printer they’re using for their prints, so you can check out actual results of using these 3D printers.
