Please note that if you're completely new to 3D Printing, there will be a slight learning curve - both on your 3D Printing skills as well as the DfAM skills. Any failures in prints without the proper design or operating knowledge will not be entertained as machine-level.
Extension or Return Pickup
- We'll contact you 1-2 days before your rental period expires.
- Should you choose to extend, come back to this page, choose the tenure & pay for the same.
- Should you choose to return, pack it in its original packaging. We'll raise a pickup.

In case you decide to own the 3D Printer, Rental Purchase discounts are applicable as follows:
- Minimum rental tenure of 1 month.
- Rental purchase discounts are calculated at 50% of the rent paid.
E.g 1: FabX Pro rented for 3 individual months 6999*3*50% = 10499 would be the discount from the MRP.
E.g 2: FabX Pro rented for 1 Quarter 17999*50% = 8999 would be the discount from the MRP.
- The rental discounts of 50% would be capped at a maximum of 6 months.
Possible use cases on why you should rent a 3D Printer
- Events / Expos requiring multiple 3D Printers for 1-2 days' usage.

- College/University students who are experimenting with designs for their final year projects requiring 3D Printer for a specific period of time and do not want to own a 3D Printer. 1-2 months' rent could be split by multiple groups of students making it very affordable.
- Designers/Hobbyists wanting to prototype a one-off project to improve it very rapidly with minor changes every prototype, for whom service bureaus are slower and owning a 3D Printer might not be a worthy long-term investment.
- Startups who have perfected a design but need 100s of units over a short period of time, to rapidly, produce & test their product (before mass manufacturing), can rent multiple 3D Printers for a short period, for low quantity batch productions.
- Seasonal businesses like training centers or gifting services needing extra machines for the holiday seasons.
- A copy of the AADHAAR would be required for KYC purposes.
- If an extension in rental duration is required, the same needs to be conveyed 24 hours prior. Actual rents are applicable.
