3D printing materials that we offer
Looking for a material that isn't listed here? Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
ABS plastic is a strong and durable material. They're ideal for prototyping mechanical parts. For prototypes that require high-precision, consider CNC machining ABS or printing in other materials. For production parts, we suggest using injection molding instead.
Nylons is a strong and durable material that is also flexible. Ideal for live hinges and functional parts.
Perfect for complex 3d models that require high details and smooth finishing.
SOMOS resin is the industrial version of standard resin. It's perfect for almost any 3d that require smooth finishing and high details. We recommend this material for any projects such as high-detailed models, architecture, art sculptures and engineering prototypes.
SOMOS Waterclear 10122 Resin
Somos® WaterClear Ultra 10122 is a clear resin that produces colorless, functional and accurate parts that simulate an acrylic appearance. Parts produced from Somos® WaterClear Ultra 10122 exhibit excellent water and temperature resistance.

3D printing technologies that we use
These 3D printing technologies are what powers our 3D printing process
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
We use Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) for low-cost and simple 3d printed parts. We don't use this process as much because we find the quality lacking and the amount of post processing work involved negates the money you save from low material cost. This is good for prototyping but for manufacturing end products, they might not be cost effective as there are better printing methods. If you want to produce low-cost end use parts at a large volume, injection molding might be a better solution.
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
Selective laser sintering is another great additive manufacturing technology for rapid prototyping. SLS allows us to 3d print objects in different materials such as nylon and metal at large volume without the need for supports. SLS greatly reduces the time spent for post-processing.
Stereolithography allows us to 3d print accurate and high resolution prototypes . We us this process to create functional prototypes that are highly detailed. We recommend SLA for almost any 3d printing projects because we believe it produces the highest quality prints.
Multi-Jet Fusion (MJF)
Multi Jet Fusion is what helps us 3d print end-use production in 24 hours.
How much does it cost to 3D print?
At PrintAWorld, we have a minimum order of $25. The price of a 3d print can vary between $2 up to thousands of dollars depending on the size and the finishing.
Do you offer shipping?
Yes. We offer shipping anywhere in Houston, TX. Due to the pandemic, we highly encourage contactless delivery with our clients in Texas.
Why don't you offer PLA?
Let's be honest, PLA sucks. For hobbyists, PLA might be a good option. But as professional 3D printing services, we refuse to recommend this type of plastic to our clients. The quality is not good and there are so many better materials out there now that you can use for your prototype. We only want the best for our customers and PLA doesn't cut it.
What type of 3D printing equipment do you have?
We have a wide range of 3D printing equipment for any types of project.
What's the turnaround time?
It depends on the complexity of the project. For rushed orders, we can do it 1-2 Days.
