Ultimate 3d-Changing how we price lower quantity part runs!

At Ultimate 3D we excel at large production runs. As a result, we compete with injection molding prices when you amortize the tooling into the mix. We have come to realize that our pricing structure is inhibitive to the onesie, twosie quantities. Hence, we have restructured how we price your parts. That said, if you […]

Comparing SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) with injection molding

  Before you manufacture anything, you need to decide two major things: What material(s) your product will be made of. How to manufacture it.   This post will contrast injection molding and 3D printing, specifically looking at the costs associated with each. As a common 3D production method, we’re using selective laser sintering as our […]

3D Printing with Nylon: Why we love it, and you should too

As many of you may already know, nylon is a thermoplastic. If you’re 3D printing with nylon materials, you’re either using a powder that hardens into durable plastic when melted by a laser, or you’re using a¬†plastic filament that’s extruded through a nozzle. Nylon has unique properties that make it a preferable material to print […]
