MakerBot Genuine Parts

We hold the majority of spare parts in our UK warehouse for next day delivery, but for those parts that elude us, we have Service Level Agreements (SLAs) with MakerBot enabling us to get the highest priority of delivery.

Time and material repairs

We offer a range of service contract options tailored to your business however, some people choose not to go down this route.

ArtSystems offer a range of time and materials contracts for MakerBot Equipment that is not linked to any contract. This options still offers you access to genuine manufacturer trained service engineers and parts.

Are there any differences between Time and Materials Service to Standard Contract Service

The time and materials option do have a few drawbacks that maybe worth considering, the main one being that without any Service Level Agreement (SLAs) with MakerBot, if we do not have stock, you could be waiting longer for parts.

Contract customers also receive priority over time and materials service engineers, this means if we need to re-direct an engineer from a time and materials booking for a contract customer at any time, we are obliged to do this.

Waiting for parts or an engineer means deadlines could be missed due to extended production down-time which can be negated by a full service contract.
