FAQ

Does the plugin offer WooCommerce integration?

Only the premium version – http://www.wp3dprinting.com/

How is the printing price calculated?

Generally the formula is: printing price = printer cost + material cost . Printer and material cost are calculated depending on the settings on the 3D Printing page. The cost can be calculated through filament volume, weight or bounding box.

Does the plugin check models for printability?

The current version only checks if the model is larger than the selected printer size.

How do I set up different price rates for different amounts of material and volume?

For example you want to charge 0.5$ for < 200cm3, 0.4$ for >200cm3, 0.3$ for >400cm3. Instead of regular numeric price enter this formula: 0:0.5;200:0.4;400:0.3

The price and amount are delimted by “:” symbol and price-amount pairs are delimited by “;”. This works on printer, material and coating prices.

How do I translate the plugin?

This 3D Printing plugin has helped our business move away from price gouging services and handle orders in-house. Due to this we are now able to pass on those savings to our customers by not having to include expensive subscription costs in pricing. Easy to use interface for customers and staff, drag and drop your 3D files for instant quotes/ordering.When needed the technical support has helped resolve issues. Highly recommend this plugin for 3D printers out there.
