Can I buy a gift that has already been made?

MakeWhale does not have an e-commerce marketplace...yet. That is on our wishlist! So until our e-shop is open, we encourage you to refer to our design portfolio, contact us for help with ideas, or create products based on your designs.


Can you make me an exact replica of something?

Yes, of course. But only if that something is not protected by copyrights, trademarks or intellectual property law.


Can I actually make anything? Are there no limitations?

We use the latest 3D printing technology for manufacturing our products. Yet, certain limitations such as size and material properties (in some cases) do exist. Rest assured, we are constantly up to date with the latest in the industry in order to provide you with as many options as possible.



How do you work?

HOW IT WORKS


Can I see what the gift will look like before confirming the order?

Yes. We will show you computer-generated images of the concept. But please note, a concept is usually a rough representation and therefore, it may not be an exact representation of the final product. Once you have confirmed the order, we will finish the design and share computer generated images of the final product before manufacturing.


Can I get a sample?

Yes. If you have a confirmed order of above 20 pieces, we can provide a physical sample to you. Just ask us for it! We also provide a sample on payment if your order is below 20 pieces.


Do you have a minimum order?

The great thing about 3D printing is that there is no minimum order! We are equally happy making one piece as we are making one hundred pieces!

How much will the gift cost?

Our products are custom-made for you from scratch. Since the cost of the product depends on the design, the manufacturing process and the material used, it is not possible to predict the price before we review your requirements.


How do I pay you?

Cash on Delivery (COD)/Bank Transfer/Cheque/Demand Draft.


Why does such a small item cost so much?

3D printing technology (for consumer products) is just at its infancy, but we do know that costs will keep dropping over a period of time.

Can I add a personal message to the gift?

Yes. We can place a note with your personal message in the gift packaging if you wish for it.


Can you deliver it to the recipient of the gift?

Yes. For delivery outside Mumbai a nominal delivery charge is applied.


What about packaging the gift?

We have a standard packaging that is best suited for shipping the gifts globally. At this moment, we do not gift wrap the package.


Where can you deliver your products?

We can deliver our products all over India and internationally as well at an additional cost. Delivery in Mumbai is free.


Can I use my packaging for the gift?

We have a standard packaging but will be glad to place the gift in your packaging as well. But you will have to provide it to us before hand.

Can you teach me 3d printing?

At this time, MakeWhale does not offer classes in 3D printing.


How do you make your products?

We use a variety of additive manufacturing processes including 3D printing, Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Stereolithography (SLA).


Where do you manufacture your products?

Our products are predominantly made internationally though we work with some local manufacturers as well.
