Wippit is a secure transmission service allowing brands and designers to share their designs to users around the world, without sharing their digital files.
Yes. Our software allows you to browse the marketplace, purchase and print from the comfort of your home, using a 3D printer. To find out more about 3D printers, check out our list of recommendations here.
Simply download Wippit Print from our Apps page to get started. Browse the marketplace and purchase your favourite products. You can then connect your 3D printer in Wippit Print and begin printing your orders.
Like any new hardware purchase, you will need to follow the manual guide to set up your 3D printer. Once ready, you can start using your 3D printer with Wippit. Our software will connect to your machine with the click of a button, and one-click print with ease.
Your 3D printer should have come with a USB cable with which you connect the printer to your Windows or Mac computer. If your printer is supported by Wippit, installing Wippit Print will ensure your computer has the software and drivers you need. Connect your printer from your Wippit Print application.
Wippit allows one-print per purchase. We know that 3D printing doesn’t always go to plan so we offer a reprint option to make sure you finish with a successful print.
Once you have purchased from the marketplace, open the Wippit Print application and go to the orders page. If your order doesn’t show, click ‘refresh orders’ at the top. Otherwise please check your email for confirmation of your order before contacting us.
Make sure you have followed the printer guide to loading filament correctly. Double check you are using the correct filament at the correct diameter size. Check the PTFE tube, which guides the filament to the extruder as it may be stuck.
For version 1 we have focused on getting PLA working as it is the most commonly used material and easy to use. We shall be adding more material types as we grow.
We recommend good quality filament.
If you would like to join as a Wippit Accredited designer, you can apply here.
This could happen for a number of reasons but usually comes down to the calibration of your machine. Make sure you have followed the guide to set up your printer. It is important the bed is level and the correct filament has been loaded. In Wippit Print, we offer a free demo print to help you get started. Please ensure that you have:
  • correctly levelled the bed.
  • removed any previous prints from the bed.
  • loaded the filament.
Check out our system requirements to see a full list of our integrated printers. If your printer is not on the list, please get in touch and let us know. As we are in our initial stage of launch, we will be adding new printers based on demand.
Before you have processed payment, you can change the contents of your shopping basket, increasing quantities or removing items. Once you have completed the payment process, please contact customer support.
Please contact our customer support and a member of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.
Currently we are accepting PayPal at checkout.
As long as the print has not been completed, you can contact customer support with your reasons for the request and we will come back to you as soon as possible.
You can change your display name in the ‘My Account’ page.
You will need to know your password to be able to change it in your account settings.
Don’t worry, it happens.
Your username will be the email address you first signed up with.
If you forgot your username or password, use one of the links to request an email with a reset link to the email associated with your account.
You can see your order history here, and click on an item to go to the product page on the marketplace.
Your selected printers are saved here.
You can remove existing ones, or add new ones via the drop-down menu.
This is the information that Wippit will use to determine whether a print you have selected will fit on your printer, or has been processed for your printer by the designer.
Designers
We love independent designers! Wanting to help you protect your work is why we started Wippit.
If you have created original designs that you have successfully 3D printed, we want to encourage you to use our platform.

To ensure customer satisfaction, we do need to verify that you can produce models that print correctly. To that end, we need you to supply evidence in the form of images.
To feature on our marketplace as a designer, simply fill out this Form for us to review.
While someone accessing your account would not be able to access your STLs, they would still be able to wreak havoc with your products on the marketplace and potentially withdraw your earnings.
These can be the following:
  1. Screenshot of the 3D model in the program you created it in
  2. Photo of the 3D printed model (unpainted)

If you have an online portfolio, you are welcome to also supply a link to it in the field provided
minimum image dimensions: 800x600
maximum image size: 2MB
You must check the box and confirm that you understand to proceed.

No Firearms or Firearm components


These are not permitted on our marketplace.
Our service is accessible from anywhere in the world, which means firearms and firearm components are illegal to print and distribute in most countries so we cannot permit them to be added to our marketplace.

No, at the moment we do not support printing on both Wippit Box and Wippit Print. We recommend that you start printing once you have finished sharing your models to the marketplace via Wippit Box.
Supported materials: PLA
Supported layer heights: 0.2mm (200 microns)
Minimum gap clearence: 0.4mm Maximum overhang: 45 degrees Z-seam location: Rear Left Minimum bed sizes:
Smallest: X: 110mm Y: 110mm Z: 110mm
Moderate: X: 225mm Y: 145mm Z: 150mm
Standard: X: 200mm Y: 200mm Z: 200mm
Large: X: 300mm Y: 300mm Z: 400mm
Orientation:
Centered
Touching the bed
Longest edge along X axis
To prevent parts from fusing together, we recommend a 0.4mm clearance between parts.
Bed levelling is one thing that is in the hands of the end user. We advise making gaps bigger than 0.4mm for the bottom 0.5mm of your model to account for this. Adding a chamfer on the affected edges should do the trick.
45 degrees
Our profiles are set up to ensure that a 45 degree angle will print without supports. If your model has overhangs greater than this, then you will either need to enable supports, or add your own custom supports directly to the STL before processing For best quality, we recommend designing to avoid the need for supports.
You will need to set the orientation of your file before processing it through wippit.
We suggest doing this in a slicing program like Prusa Slicer or Cura, so that:
  1. In the centre of the print bed
  2. Touching the print bed
  3. It has the longer part aligned with the X axis so that the item will fit on more printers
  4. The Z-seam is aligned to the back of the print bed, so turn your model accordingly

There is a facility to replace a file within our software. Should you have improved the design or made changes responding to feedback, you can edit the existing file and replace it with the new version. Once this is processed the new code will replace the old straight away, so even if someone bought your item before you updated it, if they print it after the replacement they will print the updated item.
Payment is not scheduled. Earnings will accrue assigned to your account, and you will need to log in to your dashboard and navigate to the Sales tab to withdraw your earnings.
We process payments through PayPal. You will be able to claim earnings after 28 days have passed.

Yes you can.
You can have all the parts in one print by having them all in the same STL (please take into consideration the sizes of the different print beds that we support).
Alternatively, you can include the individual parts in a Multiple Part product, so that the customer will purchase the pack, and print each part, one at a time.
Creating your own discount codes is a future feature. You will be able to set them for specific products and for a specified time frame.
One sale gives the customer just the one print. If they want more than one, they can purchase the item multiple times. With Wippit, this is now in your control.
No you don’t need to send us your files. Your STLs stay on your computer and in your control.
Yes you can.
You can include the individual parts in a Multiple Part product, so that the customer will purchase the design, and print each part, one at a time.
If you choose to, you can include the option to have all the parts in one print by having them all in the same STL (please take into consideration the sizes of the different print beds that we support). Then the customer can choose which route to go at the time of purchase.
We have 5 price points to choose from: £0 (Free); £0.99; £2.99; £5.99; £9.99
If this seems low, this is based on the fact that the customer is only getting one print from that one sale so there is opportunity for repeat custom. As opposed to selling the STL at a higher price, as you would need to cover yourself for the potential lost sales and discourage the sharing of those STLs.
Certainly! There is a £0 price point, and you still keep control of your STL!
