3D Printing Services

3D Printing Services

Met L Flo Inc. offers professionally designed and finished 3D Printing services. Our 3D printing services include both the design or improvement of digital models but also the 3D printed product itself. We can mass produce 3D printed parts with our 3D printing capabilities or export various iterations of a prototype for testing and development. The 3D printing services from Met L Flo are available in a variety of materials that can be designated based on the specifications of the part and the materials required.

If a 3D model or digital design doesn’t exist, you can bring us an existing part and we can scan, model, and refine a digital model for you to be reproduced with any adjustments added. The 3D printing process consists of multiple layers being “printed” along a single axis of a product allowing any negative space for additional parts, open spaces for plumbing, even threading for attachment or fastening.

3D Printing for Every Stage of A Product

The prototyping and finishing services at Met L Flo Inc. carry over into the 3D printing services as well. We can have multiple prototypes output to show various materials, different scales, cross-sections, based on a digital model featuring a cross-section, and finished usable parts.

3D Printing Finishes

If you are unsure of the finish or the material that should be used for your 3D printed part, ask our staff and we would be happy to make helpful recommendations based on the application and the stage of the product development you are seeking. You may want to consider multiple materials and have options to present and discuss with your parts development team.
