What is My 3D AM?
My 3D AM is an instant 3D print quote and order service for SLS and SLA parts from Prototype Projects. The service is all about manufacturing parts for the best price, in a timeframe that works best for your project planning and our production schedule.
Use our instant quote portal to order
Order your SLS and SLA online with our portal. Please note: orders made through our portal will be dispatched within 10-15 days (parts which are dyed in colours 02 to 017 will take longer – read on for further details).
To get the most from our My 3D AM service, please read all of the information on this page.
My 3D AM service levels
Orders made through My 3D AM will be dispatched within 10-15 days. SLS parts which are dyed will take longer – read on for further details.
Need it faster?
If you need your part faster or require a post-process, i.e. fit inserts, parts must be ordered via our Request a Quote page.

The print cost calculator works on the space the part bounding box (XYZ) takes up / Volume of part and some machine draw time parameters. To make good use of the powder you can nest your parts into one .stl file. So, arrange your parts with a minimum distance of 1.5mm between them (make sure they don’t intersect by mistake).
Single .stl file
Individual .stl files
Geometry is a fickle thing for calculating costs, so always try different ways to get the best price for your project.
*£35 +VAT min order value
The print cost calculator will also take into consideration the part volume compared to the bounding box volume.
As you will see below, Part A will have a much larger Bounding Box Volume than Part B, however Part B will use more material than Part A to make. So, if the Part volume is 60% or less than the bounding box, then the Part volume will be used for costing. Of course, you can always use the nesting formula to utilise the space and material.

If you wish to colour your SLS part, orders will be dispatched as detailed below.
Black: within 10-15 days
Colours: within 20 days
We will orientate the part to ensure we have the best balance between part quality and build platform utilisation.
If you need a specific print orientation, please follow the steps in Option 2 below.
If you need to have a part printed in a specific orientation, please follow these instructions:
- Save the part in the build orientation (within your CAD system)
- Export/Save As an .stl (following the guidance of your CAD system)*
- Upload file to My 3D AM
- Select Material
- Select Quantity
- Add Note “KEEP ORIENTATION”
*a poor quality .stl file will result in a poor quality printed part
You can print parts with working joints so no need for assembly. Leave 0.8mm between parts and create plenty of areas (holes) to allow for the loose powder to be removed.
- Keep parts 1.5mm apart
- Use a 2mm sprue (Round) if needed
- 0.5mm ~ possible
- 0.8mm ~ best
- 1.5mm ~ for best material mechanical properties
- Sans Serif
- 1.8mm ~ for best material mechanical properties
We currently offer Accura Xtreme on SLA printed parts ordered through My 3D AM. This material benefits delivers specific properties and characteristics, including:
- high surface quality
- can be used for tapping/inserts
- grey in colour
We will be adding additional SLA materials in time, so please check back.
