Best Materials for 3D Printed Prototypes

We use advanced materials to offer fine features and smooth surface finishes to 3D printing rapid prototyping parts and prototypes so you get the desired aesthetics, functionality, and mechanical properties. Choose the right one for your parts.

PLA

PLA is a biodegradable thermoplastic with high stiffness, good physical properties and detailing, and affordability. For its small stripe effects and 0.2 mm accuracy, it’s ideal to use for 3D printed parts.

  • Lead Time: A few business days (within a week)
  • Tolerances: Typically ±0.1 mm
  • Max part size: 12” x12″ x12″

ABS

ABS is a great choice for 3D-printed prototyping due to its thermal and mechanical properties. This thermoplastic comes with fewer defined details and great impact strength. 

  • Lead Time: 1 to 3 business days
  • Tolerances: +/- 0.01 inches
  • Max part size: 12” x12″ x12″

Faqs

Get answers to your questions

3D printing or additive manufacturing processes produce three-dimensional objects through material depositing layer by layer on a digital design. It brings a digital model into life using metal, plastic, or resin.

3D printing is an ideal choice for various industrial needs, from automotive to medical to aerospace sectors. In the key applications, there are prototyping, medical implants, metal casting patterns, lightweight parts, and much more. We also offer custom 3D printing services as well.

3D printers we use at CreateProto strive to achieve 25 to 50 microns to offer exceptional smoothness and finish. You can expect a unique texture and detail from our 3D printed prototypes.

3D printing is an additive manufacturing process, whereas CNC machining is a subtractive method. The first one deposits materials layer by layer and the latter removes the sections of a solid material block to achieve the desired part. 

Our 3D printing process can achieve excellent accuracy where the standard tolerance remains ± 0.1mm for 3D printed parts. However, it depends on the design complexity that we evaluated once you upload the CAD file. 

Usually, our lead time for 3D-printed prototypes and part manufacturing is within 7 business days. But, it can vary based on part height, size, complexity, and the 3D printing process you choose.

The size of your 3D-printed parts and prototypes depends on the specifications you select. We have different 3D printer types to print part models in different sizes, like SLA comes with up to 29" x25" x21", while SLS with 26" x15" x23".

We recommend the file formats for 3D printing are solid 3D CAD files, STEP (.stp), and STL (.stl).

Our price for 3D printing prototyping starts at nearly $95, which can change based on size, printer choice, design complexity, part volume, and material uses. However, you can apply for a quote by submitting your design in 3D CAD models.
