"I needed to find a manufacturing partner that understood what I was trying to create and how important it was to get the product to market before another innovation came to light. Protolabs recognises this urgency."

— John Docherty, Boxing Hand Grenade

Consultative Quoting

Get design feedback from our experienced engineering team that has helped thousands of customers bring their products to market with quality 3D printed parts. We will also work with you to determine optimal part orientation based on your application's requirements.

Wide Material Selection

Across our five 3D printing technologies, we use a range of commercial-grade thermoset resins, and thermoplastic and metal powders to 3D print parts that are suitable for various part applications and industries. 

Precision & Repeatablity

Our industry-leading tolerances and surface finish quality stems from a dedicated process engineering and quality team for each 3D printing technology. We also offer a proprietary material called Microfine™, which can build features as small as 0.07mm.

Unmatched Scale

Our facility is home to more than 120 3D printing machines that produce metal and plastic parts. This means we'll always have capacity when you need parts fast.
