3D Printing is a manufacturing process which produces physical parts, in a number of different plastic material options. There is no minimum quantity required for 3D Printing: you can make a single one-off part just, or you can make hundreds or even thousands of the same part.
Also known as Rapid Prototyping, this process turns 3D Model files into precise physical objects for use as functional end-use parts, functional prototypes for product development, display pieces, mold patterns and mold tooling, and more.
Material options for 3D Printing
General-purpose ABS Plastic, detailed SLA Resin, and tough SLS Nylon. Learn more
What do 3D Printed parts look like?
ABS Plastic and SLS Nylon parts are white by default, but can be 3D Printed using black material upon request. With SLA Resin, you have two options: white or translucent clear.
If you need your 3D Printed parts to have a specific color or painted appearance, we do offer detailed model-painting, Pantone color-matching, and airbrush/spraypaint services.
How to order / get a 3D Printing quote
To 3D Print something, you must have 3D Model files in one of these file formats: STL, OBJ, STEP/STP, or IGES/IGS. If you do not have a 3D Model file, we do provide 3D Design and 3D Scanning services to create a 3D Model file for you.
Your parts are made to order, according to your chosen material and quantity. All 3D model files undergo quality checks to ensure successful results.

Full Material Specs
ABS Plastic: General-Purpose
This hard, sturdy material is ideal for quick general prototyping and confirmation of form, fit, and function. ABS Plastic parts are accurate and consistent, however part surfaces do show visible build lines, especially along organically curved surfaces.
SLA Resin: Highly Detailed
SLA Resin is ideal for parts which need to have a high level of accurate detail and a smooth surface. This is the ideal material option to create tools and patterns for silicone molding, or for display pieces which need to be hand-painted.
SLS Nylon: Tough, Impact-Resistant
This versatile nylon plastic can be used in both prototyping and end-use products. SLS Nylon parts are durable, with a higher tensile strengh than other materials: thinner parts will withstand more stress without snapping. This material has a smooth yet grainy texture, and is not recommended for parts which require further sanding and/or painting.
