Contact us for a quote. As a rule of thumb, printed plastic prices are $0.50 for 200 micron and higher, $0.75 for 100 micron, and $1.50 for 50 micron for ABS or PLA. All PLA prints are done with colorFabb PLA/PHA, which is tougher and slightly more flexible than standard PLA. Alternately, we can use a high temperature PLA which provides use up to about 80C for a slight premium. Price for a mostly hollow part with no support required will be less per CC where a highly dense part requiring support may cost more.
Nylon, woodfilled PLA, PET, carbon fiber filled PLA, bronze filled PLA, and many more materials are also available. Contact for quote. The PET materials are clear. The nylon can be stained to any color using RIT dye. The woodfilled PLA can be processed like real wood (sanded, cut, stained, sealed) and has absolutely zero shrinkage or warp. We are capable of printing in ABS and vapor polishing, however, we prefer not to unless the application absolutely requires it.
We also offer 3D printed metals using the lost PLA casting in brass with a 100 micron step height. We can also cast in aluminum, bronze, cast iron, and other metals, but need to evaluate the project. Jobs need to be quoted on a per job basis, but a rough estimate of pricing is $4 per cc for a simple part in brass. Small parts will require a setup fee to account for the cost of materials. Minimum wall thickness of 0.080".
Design work is provided on an hourly basis.
Why would you want to work with me?
I am a mechanical engineer with 15 years experience in the areas of product design, equipment design, process engineering, and failure analysis in the aerospace, medical, and electronics industries. I am super responsive and will put in the extra effort required to always deliver at a promised deadline.
I also run a filament supply business, so I have a wide selection of colors and materials on hand at all times. As part of that business, I consult with other printers on what material may be the most appropriate choice for their own application, so material specification is a particular area of expertise.
I have three printers, a Makerbot Replicator, an Ultimaker, printrbot Simple metal, and a Robo3D. Each has it's strengths and weaknesses. If you're looking for a printer and want a sample run, we can do that for you as well. If you're local and decide you want to move forward with purchase of that printer, we can supply it to you locally to save you the hassle of shipping and can also provide you with training to help get over the new printer learning curve.
