Contract 3D Printing Services
Contract 3D Printing is ideal for clients that are debating making the transition from traditional manufacturing to additive manufacturing. This technology is also great for engineers that need a prototype or a low volume production run for one specific application, but do not have a need for additive manufacturing on a regular basis.
Miller 3D offers contract 3D printing services for R&D, prototyping, and low volume production parts. Our experienced additive manufacturing engineers will customize the parts according to the necessary specifications and intended use. Our 3D printing services also offers a wide variety of additive manufacturing materials, software, technology, and printers.
Once we receive the CAD design, our additive manufacturing engineers will evaluate the part, and the intended use. Next, we will create a customized 3D printing service plan for your specific application.
As a result, our client will receive custom parts that are created with less time, less material waste, and more detail than traditional manufacturing. This is the best way to see the difference that additive manufacturing can make for your business.
When submitting CAD designs, please also include any and all intended use details. It’s also important for our team to be aware of any heat resistance, strength resistance, or biocompatibility requirements in the beginning of the contract 3D printing process.
Please note: we do not compete in contract pricing quotes with our clients.

Rapid Prototyping Solutions
Save time and money with rapid prototyping solutions!
We proudly help our manufacturing clients bring their products to market faster. Additive manufacturing prototyping solutions feature low cost and quick-turn functionality so that the parts can be tested early and frequently during the process.
Prototyping parts and products using traditional methods is not always efficient on time or cost. Especially when it comes to the production of something that may or may not work for the application. Therefore, the Miller 3D printing engineers are ready to help our clients improve profitability and efficiency with our 3D prototyping printing services.
Our 3D printing engineers are happy to answer any questions regarding materials capabilities that the part will need to withstand. This includes, but is not limited to heat resistance, strength resistance, and biocompatibility. From there, we can recommend the best ways to optimize the success of the prototype.
In addition, we proudly offer 3D metal printing prototyping. Now, our clients can not only assess how the part will fit, but also how it will withstand stress, and heat. Therefore, it provides a more accurate result when testing the prototype.
The 3D Printing Team Behind Your Additive Manufacturing Project
At Miller 3D, we keep an inventory of materials and printers within our manufacturing center. We proudly offer contract 3D Printing services because it provides our team with updated experience on the latest additive manufacturing innovations. Our team also trains exclusively with our partners; Markforged, 3D Systems, and Bigrep, especially when a new level of innovation is introduced. These tutorials provide us with a knowledge base and skillset for the 3D printers and materials we are using.
This experience directly benefits our 3D printing contract clients. We are eager to apply this experience to complicated designs, and intricate applications. In addition, we can consult our network of 3D printing professionals if needed. If our additive manufacturing engineers have the printers and materials available in our local manufacturing center, we will complete the application in house. However, if the technology is not available locally, we will out source the project to the applicable partner.
The Difference Between Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing
The One Miller team understands that additive and subtractive manufacturing must work in unison to be effective. When it comes to fabrication technologies, one size does not fit all because each method contains its own set of benefits and limitations.
Since additive manufacturing is much more versatile, the designs for the parts have almost no limitations. Here at Miller 3D, we can create parts that are much lighter, but just as strong as their machined counterparts. In addition, 3D printing is great for highly detailed, intricate designs. The engineer can also customize each part of the low volume production run as needed. Utilizing 3D part manufacturing methods for prototyping and low volume production also increases cost and time efficiency when compared to traditional manufacturing. In addition, there is very minimal material waste and the post-production inspection methods are much more advanced.
When it comes to production in large volumes, subtractive manufacturing is the favorable method. The parts come out stronger than with 3D printing because the original integrity of the material is preserved. As a result, the overall quality of the build is higher. Commonplace subtractive manufacturing methods, such as CNC machining also does not leave behind any visible layer lines. So, the parts require little to no post-processing.
The One Miller Team Advantage to Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing
Since the One Miller team caters to both additive and subtractive manufacturing, we have the knowledge base to help your company reach their manufacturing goals for optimal efficiency and profitability. We understand the entirety of the manufacturing industry, and everything that goes into it. This means that our clients benefit from this wide range of experience. If we see an application that could be improved with the other method, we will work with our colleagues to find the solution internally. There are also projects that benefit from a hybrid approach, combining both methods for a truly unique result.
