Protolabs is the world's fastest digital manufacturing source for prototypes and low-volume production parts. We use industrial 3D printing, CNC machining, sheet metal fabrication, and injection molding technologies to produce parts within days.
It's driven by a complex digital thread that moves from pre-production to manufacturing to inspection. Product developers can upload a 3D CAD model online any time and receive an automated quote with design feedback and pricing information in matter of hours. The interactive analysis helps eliminate potential manufacturability issues before any actual production happens. Once a design is ready, digital instructions are sent to the production floor where manufacturing begins shortly thereafter. Finished parts can then be digitally inspected before being shipped out to customers. The best part? It's all possible in 15 days or less.
The result is an unprecedented speed-to-market value for designers and engineers and an on-demand resource throughout a product's life cycle.
