Precision refers to how repeatable the parts can be. Accuracy represents nearness to target.
Typical accuracy for a 3D printed part can be ± 150 microns.Better accuracies can be reached with iterations.
Precision and accuracy depend on shape and size of the part, material characteristics, printer capability, and process knowledge.

We needed a dome reflector for our systems. Off the shelf parts were expensive and our make shift alternatives were not of professional quality. Stratnel helped us to implement what we exactly wanted at an affordable cost, with very good quality and at the shortest possible time! They modified our design of the dome to suit 3D printing, ran through a couple of iterations with us, printed and delivered it within a few days.
In addition, Stratnel also helped us out with other important parts for our machine – such as rollers, placement jigs and calibration plate holding fixtures. They showed us what was possible, designed and printed them for us. We congratulate K. Padmanabhan for his efforts in partnering with us!

There is a very good potential for doctors to use 3D printing to make models from scans of their patients. These models can then be used for several purposes including explaining the procedures to the patients, training the pre-surgical teams and preparing for surgery.
We worked with Stratnel to generate some 3D medical models for concept proof. Padmanabhan was very proactive in supporting us. Together, we were able to very quickly turn a concept into a physical model. I was surprised at the speed of the execution. I am quite happy to recommend Stratnel for their additive manufacturing expertise.
