Protolabs is world’s fastest source for custom prototypes and low-volume production. We offer product designers and engineers four distinct quick-turn manufacturing services that can mold, machine, fabricate and build parts within days. 3D printing at Protolabs consists of five commercial-grade technologies: stereolithography, PolyJet, selective laser sintering, Multi Jet Fusion, and direct metal laser sintering. In addition to a range of capabilities, we have process controls and quality standards in place to ensure precise parts every time. Each 3D CAD model is carefully reviewed by an applications engineer before the build begins and carefully monitored during each build. Once the part is built we also offer secondary processes for parts with high requirements. These secondary processes can include tapped holes, heat treating, polishing, and much more. Visit Protolabs at our booth #1716 or head to for more information.

 Press Releases


  • Injection Molding
    On-demand manufacturing for affordable, high-quality molded parts within days....

  • Working with a single supplier that provides free design consultation services also massively speeds up the manufacturing process, allowing for greater supply chain flexibility, more consistent parts, and making qualification a breeze. 
  • CNC & Sheet Metal Fabrication
    With hundreds of CNC & Sheet metal machines, our unmatched in-house capacity ensures your parts are shipped on-time, every single time....

  • At Protolabs, our AS9100-certified CNC machining facilities are designed for both rapid prototyping and low-volume production of end-use components.

    CNC Milling

    CNC milling is a subtractive manufacturing process that uses 3-axis milling and 5-axis indexed milling processes to cut solid plastic and metal blocks into final parts.

    CNC Turning

    CNC turning with live tooling combines both lathe and mill capabilities to machine parts with cylindrical features from metal rod stock.

    Sheet Metal Fabrication

    Unlike traditional sheet metal shops, we have infinite capacity and an easy-to-use online quoting system ensuring on-time shipment every time—whether you need a single part or 500 parts. You also have access to our team of knowledgeable engineers to optimize part designs and user-friendly online resources. Trim your production time and launch products faster with one local sheet metal supplier from prototypes to assemblies to finishing options.

  • 3DP
    With more than 120 3D printers, we have unmatched capacity that reliably delivers parts within days. We have the following 3DP capabilities here at Protolabs: DMLS, SLS, SLA, PolyJet 3DP Printing, DLS 3D Printing, and MJF....

  • Our online 3D printing service consists of six 3D printing technologies to transform your 3D files into plastic, metal, and elastomeric parts. With more than 120 3D printers, we have unmatched capacity that reliably delivers parts within days. In addition to a broad material selection, we offer several post-processing options to improve cosmetics or enhance mechanical properties.

    Metal 3DP- Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) uses a fiber laser system that draws onto a surface of atomized metal powder, welding the powder into fully dense metal 

    Stereolithography (SLA)- Stereolithography (SLA) uses an ultraviolet laser that draws on the surface of liquid thermoset resin to create thousands of thin layers until final parts are formed

    Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)- Selective laser sintering (SLS) uses a CO2 laser that fuses nylon-based powder, layer by layer until final thermoplastic parts are built.
