Below is a list of most commonly asked questions: 

3D Print service

Q: I don't have a 3D printer, how can I get your puzzles?
A: When you click the green Print button or the 'order here' link at the bottom of the puzzle description, you will be forwarded to Treatstock. Over a thousand independent print services are connected to the Treatstock hub, so it's a global market place for third party 3D printing.
Treatstock supervises the print quality and takes care of payment. The payment includes escrow, so the supplier you use is being paid only after you receive the product and are happy with it!

Q: How do I make sure to get a good 3D print service?
A: In the customize order list the rating for each supplier is show above the name.
Get more information about the supplier by clicking with the right mouse button on the name and opening the link in a new tab.
Under the Reviews tab you will be able to see the individual customer reviews.

Q: How long does it take to receive my printed puzzle?
A: This will take 14 days on average.
After ordering there will be an estimated date of arrival which is usually on the conservative side.

Q: I want to have only the box printed. I have my own pieces. Can I do that?
A: Yes, you can erase unneeded parts from the order. Most of our pieces are unit 15mm with 0.2mm inset (or 0.1mm inset for Gravity Defying puzzles) and a bevel of 0.5mm. These parameters are indicated in the file name of most pieces eg. pieces 150.20.5.stl have the above mentioned parameters.

Q: Some part is missing / does not have the color I expected. Can I get a new one without reordering the whole puzzle?
A: Depending on the stage of when the problem occurred, there are a number of ways to act:
1. Before shipment you will be notified by email that your shipment is ready. Click on the link in the email which will bring you to your order. At the bottom of the page are photo's from the supplier of the printed parts for approval by Treatstock. You can click like / not like and make comments about the product. This includes requests for adding a missing part or to redo it.
2. Upon reception you will be able communicate with your supplier about the result before approving the shipment. The supplier will be paid after your approval, so if you think there is something not alright with the prints, you can request a certain part to be reprinted. 
3. If you have approved the result, but want to order additional parts pls. contact us, since the supplier is contractually obligated erase the design files at this stage and will not be able to do any reprints.

Q: I want to order more than one puzzle, how do I pay for shipping only once?
A: Although you can upload additional STL files to your order, our puzzles can be purchased and customized for print only one by one. If you have had previous orders with the supplier you can request them to refund you for the additional shipping charge. Although this is beyond our service, according to our experience, they will do so because they want to keep you as a happy customer.
Alternatively, you can purchase the STL files of several puzzles and have them printed as one order.

Q: There is no (affordable) supplier in the Treatstock customize order list, what can I do?
1. Verify if the city and country code in the Location obtained from your IP address is correct. eg. Use of a proxy server will result in the wrong location.
2. Try to broaden your search by changing all parts to white PLA.
Then one by one change the parts back to the material and color of your choice and see how this affects the list of suppliers. Quite possibly you will need to make some concessions in color and/or material.
3. If for white PLA no service will appear, change to International delivery, this will include suppliers outside your country.
