F.A.Q.

What is 3D printing?
3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a fascinating process that brings digital designs to life by creating solid objects using various materials. Instead of subtracting material like traditional methods, 3D printers build objects layer by layer, resulting in unique and intricate creations. From whimsical figurines to exquisite jewelry to prototypes for engineers and architects, the possibilities are endless with 3D printing. However, it’s important to debunk the misconception that 3D printing is a quick process. For instance, even printing a single chess piece, like a king or queen, can take up to an hour. This is due to the meticulous nature of creating prints one thin layer at a time, where factors like height, depth, supports, and in-fill all contribute to the final print time. At Cite Q Computers, we bring you the wonders of 3D printing, captivating your imagination and turning digital dreams into tangible reality.
What can we print?

Your imagination is truly the only limit when it comes to 3D printing at Cite Q Computers.

With a print bed sizes of up to 600 x 600 x 550, we have the capacity to print quite large objects in a single print. We have four printers of varying sizes and heads available. This allows us to print duplicates, mirrored items, and print multiple parts simultaneously.

We also offer a wide range of materials, including functional, foodsafe, heat resistant, UV resistant, shock absorbing, flexible, hard, and high tensile strength options.

Contact us to bring your ideas to life through the endless possibilities of 3D printing.

Limitations on Use
Each material has its own pros and cons. Some require high temperatures for printing, while others require slower speeds or additional support. These factors have an impact on the production speed, making it unsuitable for high volume production. Additionally, printing failures such as clogging, poor adhesion, or layer separation are always possible. As power is required for the process, load shedding poses a constant threat that needs to be taken into consideration.
Where do I find things to print?
Cite Q Computers offers a wide range of options for finding designs to print. You can explore numerous online sites that provide free designs to download or choose from a selection of designs available for purchase on these platforms. Additionally, our design services allow for customization and creation of unique products. It’s important to note that all designs created by us are protected as our intellectual property, unless you choose to pay for the full design time, test prints, and development costs.
How does 3D printing impact product development and speed to market?
3D printing accelerates the process by reducing the time and cost associated with prototyping and refining the design. It allows for the production of numerous prototypes in a shorter timeframe and at a lower cost compared to traditional molding or machining methods. The use of full-color multimaterial printers enables the creation of highly realistic prototypes that closely resemble the final product, facilitating faster and more informed decision-making. This is especially relevant for Cite Q Computers, as it explores the impact of 3D printing on product development and speed to market.
What Can 3D Printing Be Used For?

Apart from gadgets, goodies, gifts and things around the house, 3D printing offers much more. It offers the opportunity to created things you cannot find in stores, replace parts, create art and products.

In the bigger scheme of things the technology is taking huge stides in medical science, food security, civil projects and more.

1. Bones and muscles

At the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, researchers have been able to print bones, muscles, and ears – a process known as bioprinting – and implant them successfully into animals. What’s really exciting is the printed tissue survived after being implanted and became functional tissue.

2. Ovaries

Overcoming infertility is often a long, painful, and expensive process. But one pioneering experiment gives hope that we might see an innovative new treatment approach in the future. At the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, a mouse was implanted with synthetic, printed ovaries. The mouse went on to give birth to healthy babies.

3. Pastries

Ukrainian architect-turned-pastry-chef Dinara Kasko has made a name for herself on Instagram by posting pictures of her striking geometric 3D printed pastries. And Kasko isn’t the only one printing food…

4. Pizza

The Foodini 3D food printer, made by Natural Machines, is designed to create personalized printed food. It can print pizza, bean burgers, and a range of healthier options using edible ingredients.

5. Buildings

Russian startup Apis Cor is able to 3D print a modest house in just 24 hours, and save up to 40 percent on construction costs. The mobile printer lays down layers of a concrete mixture to build up the walls, then, once the printer is removed, insulation, windows, and a roof are added. And because Apis Cor’s printing devices are mobile, houses can be printed on-site rather than in a factory.

6. A boat

The University of Maine set a Guinness World Record when it 3D printed the largest boat ever printed – a 25-foot, 5,000-pound boat called 3Dirigo. The supersize printer used to create the boat is able to print objects up to 100 feet long and 22 feet wide.

7. A kayak

Proving that you don’t need an industrial kit to create impressive 3D printed objects, Jim Smith of Grass Roots Engineering created a full-size kayak on a home printer over the course of 42 days. Fully watertight and working, the colorful kayak took around $500 worth of materials to make.

8. Artwork for the blind

3D printing is even being used to give blind art lovers the ability to appreciate classic paintings, by turning those paintings into 3D printed sculptures.

9. Yourself (in miniature)

Thanks to startup company Beheld’s 3D printing technology, you can create a mini figurine of yourself. The perfect gift for loved ones? Sure.

What is needed to have a final 3D printed product
First, you need a creative, inquisitive, and practical mind. Cite Q Computers understands that a successful 3D print requires a combination of artistic, functional, practical, and logical elements.

Secondly, you need computer software that allows you to create a 3D model of the product you want to print. Additionally, specialized software will convert the design into a file that can be read and used by the 3D printer to bring your design to life.

Lastly, a printer is essential. In mainstream production, two types are commonly used: filament and resin. Filament consists of spools of plastic that are melted and carefully deposited layer by layer. On the other hand, resin is a liquid that solidifies as it is pulled out of the liquid reservoir.

At Cite Q Computers, we recognize the importance of these requirements in achieving the final 3D printed product you desire.
