Frequently Asked Questions About CNC Milling


Is there a product warranty on 3DTek Kits?

Yes, 3Dtek will warrant any part of a kit with a fault provided that it did not occur due to misuse.As you are building the kit yourself, the level of care and ability you bring to the build determine its ultimate success.

If it’s inside 12 months, and it does not show signs of neglect or misuse – 3DTek will fix or replace it.

What if I need help building a kit?

Some projects work the first time, others need some troubleshooting.
There are a lot of skills to bring together to build and operate some kit products. Actual results are directly attributed to the builder’s ability, care and willingness to try/learn and enjoy the project.

Anyone can do it at any age – we will work with your until you get your machines running and are happy.

Our telephone, email, and remote access support is not limited during the setup and tuning – With our extended hour’s phone, email and remote access support, you will get your CNC or 3D Printer up and making.
