Looking for an alternative supplier of plastic parts?

We've had good experiences getting prototype plastic parts made with the 3D printing vendor Shapeways. They have fast turnaround times and can make you parts in a variety of colors and materials.

However, most parts from Shapeways will end up more expensive than the prices we offer. Furthermore, while Shapeways does use very high quality 3D printers, the part quality will still not be as good as the quality of our injection molded parts.

We recommend using Shapeways only for custom plastic parts that you can't already get from our shop.
