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.
3D printing materials that we offer
Looking for a material that isn't listed here? Shoot us an email at email@example.com
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.

How much does custom 3D printing cost?
Custom 3D printing can cost between $25 up to thousands of dollars depending on the size and volume of your 3D model. The 3D printing material used affects the price as well. At PrintAWorld, we use industrial SLA resin for our custom 3D printing as we believe it results in the best results for our clients. If you want to learn more, here's a breakdown of the cost of 3D printing.
