Introduction: How to Use Treatstock's 3D Printing Network

Nowadays there are many opportunities to get 3D printed products online. People also have the option of using one of many different 3D printing networks, which is usually the quickest and easiest way, and is one of these. What is even more convenient is that Treatstock is both a 3D printing network and marketplace with 3D printable products for sale. If you don’t already have the model and can't find one that you like, it is possible to hire a designer that can make what you need through Treatstock's website. So let's see how it works.

Step 1: STL File

The first thing you need is the STL file. If you have one, then sign up and click the “Upload your 3D model” button.

If you don’t know what an STL file is, then just choose a model from our catalog. If you know the name of what you want you can click “Search” and type in the title, or you can just browse the most popular models. You can click on the "sort by" option and choose either the newest or the most popular filter to help narrow your search.

Step 2: Hire a Designer

If you can't find what you need, you can always hire a designer. Just click on the “Hire a designer” button on the homepage and submit the form by filling in all the necessary information.

Step 3: 3D Printing a Model

So now that you have chosen the model, you need to print it. If you have a 3D printer click on “Start your 3D print service”, then click on the “Print for yourself” picture and register your device. The whole process can be seen in the video.

Step 4: 3D Printing Service

If you don’t have a 3D printer, you can use one of the 3D printing services offered through the site that are located near you. After choosing the model, you will see the list of available print services nearby, choose one of them. Select the material and color you want to use and then click the button “Proceed to checkout”. Now fill in recipient's name and telephone number. After that, type in the information from your credit/debit card to make the payment.

Step 5: Wait and Enjoy!

Now, after you have finished the ordering process, the print service needs to accept your order. Then, after your order is finished the model will either be sent to you by mail, or you can pick it up (depends on the option you have chosen). Finally, you can leave a review of the print service and best of all, enjoy your new product!
