Services and fabrication

Make custom 2D parts quickly and economically for your project.
Make custom parts out of sheets of plastic, wood, card stock, rubber or leather such as art pieces, sign lettering and logos, robot parts and chassis, awards, gifts, computer case parts, jewelry, stencils, enclosures for electronics etc.

All you have to do is draw your design on a computer, once your design is ready, you can order a single or large volumes.

If you don’t have access to a computer or a design software, we might be able to draw and create a file for you at a rate of ksh 500 per hour with a minimum charge of ksh 1500

Laser cutting price:
Our Laser cutting cost is based on the time taken to cut the parts, which is determined by material type and thickness. E.g. for cutting 3mm acrylic we start at roughly ksh 1.5 per cm for cut and ksh 4 per cm for engraving.
There is a ksh 350 set up per unique part and a ksh 100 minimum per additional copy of each part.
We do lower these minimums for simple parts or for large quantities.

  • Ksh 500 minimum order charge
  • No set up fees
  • Discounted rates for large orders
  • Free door to door shipping via G4S within Nairobi. Other options also available for other counties.

NB: We are also not likely to discount our rates for the following parts:

  • Single large or complex parts that take a long time to cut
  • Very small parts or fragile parts
  • Parts with small, sharp and fine details
  • Parts with many disjointed cuts

Materials:
We also stock some of the materials which we sell by the square foot.
You can also send us your own material or have a supplier send to our address:

  • 3mm Perspex goes for ksh 350/sq.ft
  • 3mm Plywood goes for ksh 500/sq.ft

3d_print_stlOur 3d printing service allows you to make complex functional shapes for your project or prototype.

Using our 3d printing services you can quickly and economically create your prototypes or short-run/small batch end-use products.

3D printing price:

Our 3D printing cost is based on the time taken to print and material that will be used up in printing.

Printing charges start at roughly ksh 5.6 per minute and ksh 0.5 per material cm.

There is a ksh 350 setup charge per unique part and a ksh 100 setup per additional part.

We do lower these minimums for simple parts or for large quantities with free door to door shipping via G4S within Nairobi.

NB: We are also not likely to discount our rates for the following parts:

  • Complex parts that take a long time to print
  • Very small parts or fragile parts
  • Parts with small, sharp and fine details

PCBA COST
Our PCBA cost is divided in 5 categories:

– Setup cost: This is cost of setting up assembly machine such as pick-n-place feeders and machine programming. Minimum charge is ksh 2500
– Consumptive material cost: This is the cost of materials used during assembly process such as solder etc
– Assembly cost: This is the cost of actual assembly work. This is charged based on the type of component and the number of pads. Surface mount components are charged less since they are easier to mount compared to through hole components which are soldered manually
– Material cost: This is the component cost that Warefab will procure on your behalf. These are direct cost from the suppliers.
– Operation cost: This includes procurement cost and other administrative costs.
