Prototyping Materials & Resources

GoProto only wishes you success with your projects, so we’ve come up with prototype resources that will allow us to explain a little more about what our processes entail.

Below you will find information regarding the prototyping materials we use for each manufacturing process. All of these options are available to you. We have also included a technical manual giving more details regarding HP Multi Jet Fusion procedures.

On each process page, we’ve also included the prototyping materials we can use, so be sure to check back there.

We hope our prototype resources are helpful to you and can give you an understanding of our work. We appreciate any questions or concerns you might have, and we look forward to working with you!
