Protolabs is the world’s fastest manufacturer of custom prototype and on-demand production parts. We offer product designers and engineers multiple manufacturing technologies—3D printing, CNC machining, sheet metal fabrication, and injection molding—to address their needs at each stage of product development and into production. We achieve our unprecedented speed with online quoting, proprietary software, and automated manufacturing processes that transform a CAD model into a final part within days, sometimes hours.

Our digitalized process starts with a customer uploading their 3D CAD model to receive an interactive quote with free design analysis and pricing information within hours. The manufacturability analysis helps customers eliminate problems, like sink or internal undercuts, before their design reaches the manufacturing floor, so modifications can be made early and often—without penalty. It’s an iterative process that lets designers and engineers avoid development speed bumps and reduce design risk, so they can get their products to market as fast as possible.
