IIID FAQ (click question to reveal answer)

  1. What does #IIID mean?
    IIID is "3D" written in Roman numerals to highlight the future of manufacturing and inspiration of past Italian Renaissance artistry required for the sculpting of your shields by the V-MODA Milano Studio.
  2. When buying a 3D custom shield kit (either Over-Ear and/or On-Ear), how many shields do I get?
    Each custom shield kit comes with two shields of the color/material you selected.
  3. Why does the shipping time of 3D shields take so long?
    3D sculpting, printing, and finishing is a complex process that requires traditional handcraftsmanship and 11+ steps. After you submit your logo/design with monograms, our Italian sculptors are tasked with sculpting a 3D model,which will then be printed in New York City.

    Furthermore, the material you choose also changes the lead time because the printing processes are different.

    • Fiber is made through selective laser sintering (SLS) using a bed of powder to form the shield layer by layer, it is then dyed in the color of your choice
    • Steel is made depositing steel powder in thin layers, combined with a binding material and built one layer at a time. The binder is then infused with bronze and heated to form the final steel shield
    • Precious & Cast Metals are made using a complex process, hi-res 3D printing is used to create a mold. Metal is then cast into the mold, the shield is extracted and finished by meticulous hand polishing (plated metals add an additional two stages of plating)
  4. Does the 60-Day Test Drive Guarantee apply to 3D printed shields?
    Yes, it does. However, a 25% restocking fee applies to the purchase of 3D custom headphones. A 50% restocking fee applies to the purchase of a pair of 3D printed shield kits. If any issues arise or you have questions on planning your 3D shield order, please contact our Six Star Support for consultation.
  5. What types of materials and colors do you offer for 3D printed shields?
    We offer four classes of materials:

    1. Fiber - 9 colors available
    2. Steel - Matte Black, Stainless Steel, Polished Gold, Polished Bronze, Matte Bronze
    3. Raw and Gold Plated Metals - Raw brass, Raw bronze, 14k Rose gold plated brass, 14k gold plated brass and Rhodium plated brass
    4. Precious Metals - Sterling Silver, 14k Solid Gold, 14k Solid Rose Gold and Platinum
  6. Why is the "Upload your own logo" selection listed as "Beta"?
    Sculpting a 3D model is a complex process. It takes time and thorough engineering validation before the design can be done by our Italian sculptors. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that the shipping time will be the same of a standard order nor that every logo can be embossed on your shields. However, we will do our best to design your own 3D relic with the fastest turnaround possible. If any issues arise during the process, our customs department will get in touch with you to find the best solution.
  7. What is the minimum thickness for 3D printing of designs and fonts?
    Bolder logos with thicker lines are required for the best results. Thin or fine lines in the design and areas of fonts may not print properly.

    Good and Bad Logo
  8. How high is the logo embossing and volume limits of 3D files?
    Logos are embossed at a height limit of 1mm, and the maximum volume of the shield and logo/3D file is 5.7 cubic centimeters for Over-Ear shields (2.9 cubic centimeters for On-Ear shields). If your logo or 3D file exceeds this volume, our team will contact you. V-MODA original designs can reach an embossing height of 2mm ("Studs" is the highest design).
  9. What file types do you accept for uploading custom artwork?
    We accept the following types of files for your custom artwork:
    • .AI
    • .BMP
    • .CDR
    • .DOC(X)
    • .EPS
    • .GIF
    • .JPG
    • .OBJ
    • .PDF
    • .PNG
    • .PSD
    • .STL
    • .SVG
    • .TIFF
  10. What logos or 3D files will be rejected?
    Anything deemed explicit or inappropriate may be rejected at V-MODA's discretion.
  11. I do not know how to use 3D modeling software, Photoshop or Illustrator. Can I just upload a normal .JPG image?
    Yes, we do not require that you upload your artwork in a proper 3D file format, Photoshop or Illustrator format. You are free to upload a normal image file (JPG, PNG, GIF, etc) and our studio can convert it to the proper formats.
  12. I am designing and uploading my artwork in Photoshop format (.PSD), do you have any requirements?
    Please remember to "rasterize" any text/fonts you may have (right click on text layer and select "rasterize"), in case our computers do not have the same font files you are using.
  13. I am designing and uploading my artwork in Illustrator (.AI) format, do you have any requirements?
    Please remember to "outline" any text/fonts you may have, in case our computers do not have the same font files you are using. Please be sure to also embed (NOT link) any external images you may have in your file, and lastly when saving your .AI file, it is recommended you check the box that reads "Make PDF Compatible Version" for compatibility issues between our software and computers.
  14. Do you have any size requirements for an image I submit? Any DPI requirements?
    The bigger the better. While we do not have any required size, it is recommended that, for best 3D printing results, you submit an image that is at least 300 dpi and 1,000px wide or tall. Anything smaller may not be 3Dprinted very well.
  15. I have an image I want to use for 3D printing, do I need to vectorize it first?
    No, it is not necessary to vectorize your image if you cannot (or do not know how). Our customs department will be able to vectorize it in Illustrator themselves before 3D printing.
  16. Can I get an image 3D printed in color or black?
    3D printed shields are different from laser engraved shields. On 3D printed shields, the artwork is sculpted in the same material and color as the rest of the shields.

    This is not true for our aluminum shields, which are not 3D printed but laser-engraved. Our engraving machine only engraves in white (so any image/logo you submit will be engraved as white on the shield color you select). For questions on 2D laser-engraved customs, please refer to the "CUSTOM LASER ENGRAVING FAQ" section
  17. Can my design extend all the way towards the edge of the shields?
    Because of the engineering validation, the 3D design and printing process has some limitations on how far toward the edge of the shield that we can 3D print. Your logo will be applied in the center of the shields, and the shield has a maximum volume of 5.7 cubic centimeters (2.9 cubic centimeters for On-Ear).
  18. Can I send my design using the Illustrator/Photoshop template available at
    Yes, you can send your artwork using our Illustrator/Photoshop template.
  19. Can I get a different design on each shield?
    Not at this time unfortunately. Our API is programmed to send orders of 2 shields with the same design each time. However, if you fancy a different design on each shield you may purchase two 3D Custom Shield Kits to mix and match between the designs on your headphones.
  20. Can you mirror my image on the opposite shield?
    Not at this time unfortunately. Our API is programmed to send orders of 2 shields with the same design each time. However, if you fancy your design to be mirrored on the opposite shield you may purchase two 3D Custom Shield Kits to mix and match between the designs on your headphones.
  21. Can I get my favorite sports team or college logo 3D Printed?
    No, unfortunately we cannot 3D print copyrighted logos such as professional sports teams (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, MLS, etc) or college/school logos. We also cannot 3D print copyrighted properties and/or company logos (such as Batman, Superman, Disney, Coca-Cola, etc).
  22. I have Photoshop and/or Illustrator on my computer, do you have any templates I can use when designing my artwork?
    Yes, please use the following links below to download your desired template for your shield size:

    Over-Ear: Photoshop | Illustrator CS6 (CS5 | CS4)

    On-Ear: Photoshop | Illustrator CS6 (CS5 | CS4)
