Shipping of our products

While we aim to keep as many of our products in our local warehouse on the Gold Coast as possible, sometimes this isn't the most viable solution for some of our larger more exotic products.


As part of our commitment to providing high-quality products at competitive prices, we occasionally arrange for our trusted suppliers to deliver directly to your door. We have established this streamlined process with our partners who uphold the same quality and service standards that we are known for.

What postage methods do we use?

We understand our customers want their goods as soon as possible. Depending on the order size, we will generally ship smaller orders via Auspost Express post or Aramex. For larger orders such as kits and machines we ship using TNT Road Express or Mainfreight.

When will my order be shipped?

Orders are shipped on weekdays, excluding Queensland State and national public holidays.

We do our best to ship orders placed before 3pm on the same business day. Any orders placed after 3pm will likely be dispatched the following business day.

Please allow 1-2 business days from the time of placing your order for your items to be shipped.

Some items require additional processing time, such as our dust shoes, which may take up to 3 days as they are built per order. If there are specific lead times associated with a product, these
will be clearly stated in the item description.


Although rare, we may occasionally place an item on "back-order". If this does happen it will be clearly noted in the item description. All back-orders will be fulfilled prior to the item being marked as " in stock ready to ship" and all orders will be fulfilled in chronological order.

Lead times* typically only apply to our CNC machines as they are in a build queue.

If you have requested, and paid, for a custom order (IE profile rails, bearing blocks, Ballscrews etc.) please allow 7 -21 business days for delivery as the items are shipped directly from our  partner factory via TNT, FedEx IP or UPS.

**Please note custom orders from our partner factory placed during January & February may have an additional delay in shipping due to the Chinese New Year closure dates. As the dates can vary each year, we will notify you if your order is likely to be effected by the dates.

How our lead times work:

The majority of our products are readily available, which allows us to dispatch within 1-2 business days. However, some of our products require a preparation period or 'lead time', which is clearly indicated in the item's title or product description.

The specified lead times are estimated based on our existing order volume and, in the case of machines, our stock availability and current assembly queue.


To keep things fair, and to ensure smooth sailing for Machine assemblies, we do not allow anyone to "jump the queue" for any reason, all orders will be fulfilled in chronological order.

Whilst we endeavour to stick to these timelines, as in any well-intentioned plan, unexpected situations can arise. In such cases where we anticipate a delay beyond the specified lead time, we promise to promptly communicate with you and provide an updated timeline.

It is important to note that Lead times are approximate and can change without notice. Lead times do NOT include shipping transit time.

When will my order arrive?

For any products that are sent directly from our Gold Coast warehouse we typically ship via Auspost Regular or Express post or for larger items (such as our SharpCNC kits) we ship via TNT Road Express, The delivery time is generally within 1-7 business days depending on your locality to a major city and whether or not you are on the Eastern or Western side of Australia.

We have worked extremely hard to source reliable direct from factory suppliers for their product quality, packaging quality and shipping speed. For any products that are sent directly from our suppliers the typical delivery time is 7-21 business days

Please note: Whilst we always aim to use the fastest delivery methods such as Express & Priority post options, Once the package has been handed to the carrier it is entirely beyond our control when it is delivered. As such we will not guarantee any delivery time frames.


During peak periods like Black Friday sales and the Holiday season, delivery times may be impacted. Please keep this in mind when placing your order.

CNC3D cannot be held responsible for any delays that occur during the shipping process


Lead times are indicative and subject to change based on product availability. We will contact you if there are any delays with your order. Lead times do NOT include shipping/delivery time.


We strive to keep you informed throughout the delivery process. However, please note that we are often dependent on the shipping company for the latest updates.

Tracking your order

For all deliveries, we ensure that tracking information is provided so that you can monitor your order's progress and estimate its arrival time.

It is crucial that you provide an accurate shipping address when placing an order. Any items delivered to an incorrect address due to incorrect information provided at checkout will not qualify for replacement or refund. If you need to change your shipping address, this must be done before the status of your order is marked as "shipped"

CNC3D does not accept responsibility for any additional charges related to missed deliveries or redirection fees that may apply due to inaccurate delivery information provided by you (the customer).

You may include any preferred delivery methods in the order notes. We do our utmost to accommodate these preferences, but due to a variety of factors out of our control, we cannot make any guarantee that these preferences will be met.


If you have special shipment preferences (i.e overnight express, specific carrier etc) please note that additional shipping fee's may be applicable, this will be discussed with you prior to shipment.

If you opt to organize your own freight service or Uber (or similar) collection, CNC3D is not liable or responsible for any fees or potential loss or damage of the item during transit.

Lost or delayed delivery?

In the event of a delay or issue with your delivery, we recommend reaching out to the shipping company directly for the most real-time and detailed updates. They are often in the best position to provide accurate information as they have direct contact with the delivery personnel.

When contacting the shipping company, be sure to provide your tracking number for quicker and more efficient assistance.

If the shipping company is unable to provide satisfactory assistance, or if you encounter difficulties in communicating with them, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

You can reach us at We request that you provide us with as much detail as possible about the issue, including any response you have received from the shipping company

Depending on the nature of the issue, we may liaise with the shipping company on your behalf, offer possible solutions, or provide guidance on
next steps.


The decision to refund or replace a lost order is made only after we've received an official confirmation from the Shipping Company confirming that your order was indeed lost. Without this confirmation, we cannot deem an order lost, to ensure the process remains transparent and fair to all parties involved.

Please note that CNC3D cannot be held responsible for any delays that occur during the shipping process. However, we will do our best to assist and support you in resolving any shipping-related issues.

Please be advised that CNC3D will not issue any refunds for delayed items. We understand the frustration that may arise from delayed deliveries, it's important to note that delays during the shipping process are beyond our control.

Products arriving to you direct from our suppliers
