Update: We no longer offer 3D metal printing, but we do now
aluminum casting services.
We are offering an exciting new prototyping technology called 3D Metal Printing through
one of our qualified partners.
- Curves, undercuts, spirals, angled internal features
Internal cooling channels (useful for injection molds)

How it Works:
The prototyping system spreads out thin layers of metal powder and fuses together the appropriate
sections of each layer over and over until a 3-D model is generated. The powder model
is then cured in an oven to become a strong, solid metal object.
29 x 15 x 15 inches maximum
0.08 inches (2 mm) minimum wall thickness
0.01 inches (0.25 mm) thin features (such as raised text)
Dimensional Tolerance: 0.005" (0.13 mm) for medium size parts
Cost: $35-55 per cubic inch of material used* ($2.10-3.30 per cc)
Polishing: Add $5 per part
* Tip: Save money by designing your bigger models as hollow shells (0.1-inch walls)
with a 0.2-inch drain hole on the bottom.
