This article will go over some of the most common problems that people have when they are trying to manage their 3D printing business. We'll also talk about 3DQuoter, our proposed solution to these problems so that you can focus on what really matters - making money!

Order Intake

Discord? Email? Phone? How do you take orders? It is common to feel disorganized when you are taking orders from multiple sources. It is also common to feel like you are missing out on orders because you are not checking all of your sources.

How long does it take you to quote an order? There are many factors that go into quoting an order. In most cases, the information needed to quote an order involves using the same software you use to print. Surely this manual process does not scale well.

With 3DQuoter, you can create a custom quote form that you can share with your customers. We integrated the slicers you use to provide accurate quotes.

Payment Handling

Paypal, Venmo, CashApp, Zelle, etc. How do you accept payments? It can be difficult to track payments when you are accepting payments from multiple sources. Since orders are usually custom, how do you manage changes in requirements?

3DQuoter integrates with Stripe to accept payments. Stripe is a payment processor that allows you to accept payments from all major credit cards. We also allow an easy way to adjust your quotes!

Shipment Handling

You need to ship your orders. How do you handle shipping? You can use carriers like USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc. It can be a painpoint to enter information from your orders into the carrier's website.

3DQuoter integrates with Shippo to allow you to easily create shipping labels. You can compare rates from multiple carriers and choose the best option for you. You can also print labels directly from our application.
