Orange ModelCars shop - How to order

Orange ModelCars designs 3D models for modelcars and dioramas. In the following, we explain the ordering process of our products. But first we explain what we at Orange ModelCars do ourself and what others do for us, so the ordering process becomes understandable.

As Orange Modelcars creates 3D models with (very) fine details, this requires state-of-the-art 3D printers including skilled technicines. In order to print those models properly, a sophisticated (and expensive) 3D printer is required. Orange Modelcars  is outsourcing the 3D printing to the company Shapeways, located in the Netherlands and the United States. Shapeways has all facilities needed for global sales and distribution of 3D printed objects, therefore all orders are placed directly in our shop on Shapeways.com.

Ordering process

Step 1 Choose the product you would like to order
On the products page you will find an overview of all our products on offer.
Choose the product or products you wish to order.

Step 2 Go to Shapeways.com
On our website you will find links on every product page to the product page at Shapeways. Click the picture of the product and you will go to the respective product in our web shop at Shapeways.

Step 3 Add to your cart at Shapeways
On the product page at Shapeways the price of the product is shown on the right. You can also see the material in which you can have the model printed. The default material that matches the level of detail of the model, is already chosen for you. Sometimes you can choose a different material too. If you select the alternative (first arrow) the price will change immediately. Click on the ‘BUY NOW’ button (see second arrow in the image below).

The product is then added to your cart. You can view the contents of your shopping cart by clicking the “CHECKOUT” button or the shopping cart (see the red arrows in the image below).

Step 4 Follow the ordering process at Shapeways
Follow the steps in the ordering process (in English) at Shapeways. In the top right corner you will see the totals of your order. Please note that the price will automatically be adapted to the country you select. VAT and shipping costs are automatically added.
In some cases it is possible to select multiple options for your shipment.
If applicable you can type the Shapeways Promo Code. Please confirm with ‘APPLY’. If applicable also a Credit or Gift Card Code can be used. Click ‘APPLY’ to confirm. By clicking ‘CHECKOUT’ you’ll get to the next step.

Step 5 Create an account
If you wish, you can create an account at Shapeways, then your data will be stored for a next order. Creating an account is not required (choose in this case option ‘GUEST CHECKOUT’). After completion of the ordering process Shapeways will 3D print the product for you.

Step 6 Shapeways sends you the product
When your order is 3D printed, it is well packed in a box and sent to you by postal mail.

Step 7 Check the product
The fun part: open the package and unpack your order carefully. Then check your order. If a part is missing or damaged (see for a comparison the pictures on our website), please contact Shapeways.
