3Dprintler began in 2012 as a service provider for 3D printing - a mini-factory - until we saw an opportunity: a search engine could help people discover high quality, on-demand 3D printing services they never even knew existed.

For 10 years 3D printing has promised to change the world by putting a 3D printer in your home, but what if you let someone did the 3D printing for you? Our professional partner services like Shapeways, Sculpteo, i.materialise, and makexyz ship completed prints to your door with none of the hassle of buying and setting up your own printer.

Prints are available in over 270+ materials & finishes including:

  • Platinum
  • Gold
  • Ceramics
  • Steel
  • Aluminium
  • Nylon
  • Wood and much, much more...

In no time you can browse & compare a growing list of hundreds of material options and finishes, way more than anything your 3D printer at home or work can offer.

If you use Kayak or Expedia to compare & shop airline ticket prices, you can now do the same for 3D printing services with our exclusive selection of professional service providers who offer the highest quality prints, the fastest turnaround times, and the exceptional customer service you expect.

We’re making it faster and easier for first-timers and experts alike to 3D print. 3Dprintler: 3D printing for everyone.

  • Why should 3D printing services integrate with 3Dprintler’s API?

    Often people with 3D printers at home or work don’t know the wide range of materials available from professional services like those on the 3Dprintler platform. We help people discover our partners’ services by allowing customers to search, browse, and shop the growing list of 3D printing options available as the technology advances.

  • How do I know I’m going to get the best price on

    3Dprintler extensively vets its partner service providers and ensures that prices are not marked-up for customers. You get the regular price you would on our partners’ websites. Sometimes there is a difference in price between 3Dprintler and our partners, resulting from manual adjustment made by the service provider to ensure your product is printed correctly.

  • When can I expect my products?

    Most prints will take about 1-2 business days to print + shipping. Shipping times depend on how far you are from the service provider you choose.

  • I’m a designer, is there an easy way for my customers to directly buy the completed print of my 3D models?

    We can proudly help you with our 3Dprintler button. Designers can integrate with the 3Dprintler API, allowing them to implement a button on their website that will automatically offer to your customers price quotes from 3D printing service providers in your area.
