Printing Process

FDM Printing

Multi-material FDM Printing

From prototyping PLA to industrial standards like Carbon Fiber and Nylon, our machines can print in a variety of materials.
With tolerances as tight as +/- 0.005mm, we create products that are designed and ready to use in any application.

Step 1: Have a file?
Step 2: Certain FDM is the route for your project?
Step 3: Email us at Print-FDM@Protoprop.com!
Be sure to include the file of what you need printed, desired size, material (if known, see below) etc.
Note: Material options are as follows; PLA, PETG, Carbon Fiber Nylon, & TPU!

MATERIALS

Disclaimer

 All prints will be packed and shipped into separate sections unless specified otherwise to protect during shipping. Protoprop doesn't provide a painting service at this time. Therefore, will come ready to prime and paint, if necessary. If you have a specific brand or color of filament desired, include that info on request. We make every effort to get rid of all traces supports and imperfections caused by printing, but there may be some sanding required when you receive your item.

Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU - Currently N/A)
Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU - Currently N/A)

A filament that is both flexible and elastic. Because of its rubber-like elasticity, robustness, and durability, it's ideal for applications that require impact absorption and a soft-touch surface. Tubes, seals, bushings, flexible phone cases and vibration dampeners are examples of TPU 3D printed items.
