Accurate professional 3D printed parts directly from 3D CAD data in a matter of hours without drawings, tooling, or machining.
protoCAD 3D prints both Polypropylene like and ABS like materials utilyzing StereoLithography.
The 3D printed parts are naturally amber in color. We can paint or dye the parts. Polished parts are transparent with an amber tint.
protoCAD assembles Helicoils into the 3D printed parts for threaded features. Threaded inserts can be adhered in place and large threads can be just 3D printed.
protoCAD can 3D print parts up to 20"X20"X24" in a single build. Parts as large as 4'X3'X1' have been printed by breaking the part into multiple pieces then assembling them after they have been printed.
Most parts are delivered in 2-3 business days depending on the size and volume of the part(s).
Quantities range from a single part that might be used for a design evaluation to thousands of parts that are used as production parts.
The 3D printed parts are very accurate and are generally within +/-.005" with an additional +/-.001 in/in. We work with our customers to ensure critical tolerances are achieved.
protoCAD delivers the 3D parts with a bead blast finish. The parts can also be provided without a finish, a polished finished. We work with the customer to provide any specialty finish they may desire.
StereoLithography and Urethane Castings can be strengthened and hardened or electronically shielded using a thin coating of copper and nickel to form armor coating. Armor coating can be applied to entire part or selected part surfaces.
