What is Minimum Order Quantity(MOQ) Cost?

Cost in 3D Printing is a major factor influencing people’s decision in opting for a particular material. Like conventional technologies, 3D Printing cost also depends on a number of factors. Some of the major factors are:

  1. The type of material and technology chosen
  2. The amount of material consumed
  3. Total time required for fabrication
  4. Time spent in post-processing

We have come up with an optimized algorithm which takes into account all these factors and generates a real-time costing. But Just like any other technology, 3D Printing too has a certain basic fixed cost associated with running the machine. So when the parts are small and in fewer quantities, the total cost of the order, at times, falls below the threshold of what a minimum order cost should be to run that particular material in a particular machine. In such a scenario, we charge a Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) cost against the parts.

This MOQ cost depends on the following:

  • Material Selection
  • Post-processing option chosen.

Can I remove the MOQ cost?

MOQ Costing CANNOT be removed, but since you’re being charged a MOQ, you might as well make the most of it by either:

  1. Increasing the number of part quantities on which MOQ costing is applicable.
  2. By Uploading more parts with similar material and/or post-processing capabilities.

MOQ cost varies from material to material and is different for each post-processing option. To find the MOQ costing for individual materials & post-processing options, kindly login to COCO.

The MOQ costing for individual materials is as follows:

Kindly note that, there are some special materials for whom we run the machine every 6-8 days depending upon the demand. Hence MOQ Cost for the same is on the higher side.

On similar lines, there’s a MOQ costing associated with Finishing, Painting and Dyeing processes, too.

Do you want fast manufacturing?

Manufacturing plastic and metal parts in small volumes is difficult. But ensuring good quality, and achieving repeatability while keeping costs down is even more difficult. We help you with both!
