Is it true that there are more companies investing in the materials to provide services related to FDM 3D printing in Orange CA? Yes – but it is also true that many of these companies simply buy the equipment, read the manual, and profess themselves to be experts. This is not the case with ProTek Models. We have completed many projects, complete almost everything in-house and work with just about every material you can imagine. Trust us with your 3D printing project. Call us at (832) 968-6636 to get started.
One of the biggest issues with some companies that say they offer FDM 3D printing in Orange CA is the fact that they do not actually complete the project in house. They send it off to a third party. There are two major issues with this. First, you will be paying more as the company you work with must get a profit over what they are paying the third party to complete your project. Second, you will have less control over the outcome because you won’t be working directly with the company working on the project. At ProTek Models we do 99% of our work in house.
The list of projects we have worked on is long and varied. If you have questions about whether or not we can take on a particular project, just call us at (832) 968-6636 to find out. In the meantime, you can check out these examples of the types of projects we have worked on.
This is just a short example of what we can do. You can trust ProTek Models to help with all your FDM 3D printing in Orange CA needs.
The specific process we use for your project will vary based on a number of factors, but generally speaking they will be broken down into a three-step process:
You may need all three steps or you may just need one. We can customize your job to your specific needs.
