First steps - Uploading your models
Welcome to our Craftcloud website! To begin the process of placing your order, click on "Get instant quote”. This will bring you to our uploading page.
If you don’t want to upload a file yet and instead just want to see how Craftcloud works, then click “see how it works” to try out the service with one of our example files.
Begin by selecting your location, currency, and the file unit of your model in the top right corner.
You can now either drag and drop your 3D files or click and select files to upload your file to Craftcloud. After you select the files you wish to upload, you will see a pop-up window that will ask you to confirm your location, currency, and file measurement unit before proceeding. If everything is correct, click “confirm & continue”.
You will now be able to see your uploaded models and their dimensions on the same page.
If you need multiples of each model, you can change the quantity here, or later in the process.
Scaling your models
If you wish to scale your model, you can click "scale" next to the model's dimensions. You will see another pop-up window that lets you scale your model:
Your material choice
When you are satisfied with your chosen dimensions, please click “See Materials & Prices”. This will direct you to a second page, where you will be able to see all materials available for your location and model size, as well as their prices:

Choose your manufacturer
After a color has been selected, you will then be directed to the next page to see your options of manufacturers, as well as their price offers and estimations of production and shipping lead times.
If you prefer to see manufacturers in your region or continent only, please refer to this article here.
Select the offer which matches your budget and lead time expectations, and click “Add to cart”. You will now see that the selected model has been added to your shopping cart, and now you can go through these steps with the remaining models.
After you add all the models to the shopping cart, you can proceed to the next page.
Final steps - Placing your order
Next to each model in your cart, you have the option to add a production note to your model. If you have more than one model, you can leave a production note on each model separately. Only Craftcloud and your selected manufacturer(s), will see your note.
Should you wish to print your model at a specific angle, please make a request to change the standard print settings, or if you have an HS code or product description for shipping purposes, you can also add them in the product note here. We will make sure your request is acknowledged.
You can now click "Continue to Checkout" to choose a payment option and finish your order process.
