3D Printed Plastic Parts

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is an excellent choice for the efficient and cost-effective production of plastic components. In comparison to subtractive manufacturing, Plastic AM typically offers a more economical solution. The speed and automated nature of Plastic AM enable swift and iterative optimization of parts. The process of 3D printing plastic components entails the meticulous layer-by-layer construction, setting it apart from subtractive CNC plastic machining. Thanks to its utilization of a diverse range of polymer materials, 3D printing is well-suited for a wide array of applications, including prototyping and low-volume production runs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What plastic is used for 3D printing?

Many factors can affect the total cost of a 3D print. How many parts you need, the material you require and any post-processing can all add to the total cost. There are ways to make 3D printing cheaper such as nesting your parts together. Use our 3D printing calculator to see how much it can cost

How much does 3D printing plastic cost?

We offer a wide range of materials at our 3D printing service including: ABS, Carbon Fibre, Nylon PA12 GF(SLS), PEEK, ULTEM 1010 and many more

How fast can you 3D print parts?

Depending on size and geometry, we can have parts turned around in as little as three days. We do offer an express service, please contact us to find out more about improving your lead times

How strong is 3D printed plastic?

We offer SLA & SLS materials which exhibit isotropic properties. Parts printed using these processes can be very strong dependant on the geometry
