Partner With Pros

Leverage an experienced engineering team that you can trust to manage everything from a small one-off part to high and low volume manufacturing to overall project management.

You Design It

Send us your CAD file and our staff helps identify the best process and material for your project.

We Make It

We use one of our industrial grade 3D Printers to create your parts. We leverage the following technologies: Stereolithography (SLA), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

You Get It

When your parts are complete we package them up and rush them to you.

Fused Deposition Modeling Machines


The machines that run your materials are able to run parts around the clock to get them in your hands sooner. With sparse fill programing FDM allows lower amounts of material, meaning more affordable parts.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

FDM builds three-dimensional parts by melting and advancing a fine ribbon of plastic through a computer-controlled extrusion head, producing parts that are ready to use.


  • Low-volume production of complex end-use parts
  • Prototypes for form, fit and function testing
  • Prototypes directly constructed in production materials
