FDM 3D Printing

3D Printing - Additive Manufacturing - Prototyping

FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) 3D Printing offers a large variety of engineering grade thermoplastic materials, high precision, and rapid turnaround for your parts and assemblies. Utilized for production, concept models, manufacturing tools, and rapid prototyping, FDM 3D Printing is a great choice for functional prototypes and end use parts. FDM 3D printing can handle projects with very large parts and complex geometries.

ProTek 3D, the 3D printing division at ProTek Models, offers high quality FDM 3D Printing services. We offer every production-grade 3D printing material on the market, and by utilizing our Fortus F900, 900mc, 450mc, 400mc, and 360mc machines, our highly experienced team is able to tackle any assembly regardless of complexity or size.

SLA 3D Printing

3D Printing – Additive Manufacturing - Prototyping

SLA or Stereolithography was the original 3D printing technology invented in 1989. Historically SLA has been known for great surface finish, high accuracy, fine detail, and fairly fast build times. SLA parts were also infamous for being very fragile, heat-sensitive, brittle, and very UV unstable. The drawbacks to this process made it a technology that was not used by ProTek Models until 2021. New, highly advanced production-grade resins have made their way to the market, and a new ultrafast SLA-type technology called LSPc (Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing) was invented by NEXA3D. The ultrafast print speeds and production end-use quality materials are extremely exciting to all of us here at ProTek Models. We are now offering prototype and production 3D printing with NEXA3D NXE400 3D printers with the full range of NEXA3D prototypes and production-grade materials. We are also a reseller of the full production line of NEXA3D printers. With ultra-fast print speeds up to .393” (1cm) in the Z-axis and materials like xPEEK with a heat deflection temperature of 460F (238C), no other resin 3D printing technology comes close.
