Every order has a protective packaging, usually foam peanuts. They serve as a filler to protect fragile items and they create a cushioning effect.
Why choose us? Our international network of 3D printing specialist allows us to ship and Deliver Duty Paid (DDP) with unparalleled lead times and shipping times that both range in a couple of days only. 3D printing technology also gives extreme flexibility in terms of production volume, product characteristics and material. Unlike our competitors, we offer our services and products at low prices regardless of the size of your orders. We can create your prototypes in few days as well as your retail products. Our quotes include all costs and are DDP (Delivered Duty Paid) with no hidden or after production expenses.
3DUniversalis serves the growing need for custom large scale business orders. From retail goods to industrial parts, we can produce for wholesale as well as unique items. Using our network of 3D printing facilities, we can ship internationally in record time with production methods more efficient than cnc machining or injection molding. Our multipurpose capabilities gives you scalability in your manufacturing needs and insure that your products are tailor made.
The main advantage of 3D printing technologies is the reduction in the cost of low and medium volumes compared to other manufacturing methods. Savings come from the reduction in high machining costs, manpower, and tailored production.
Lead time on production can take a couple of days at most for low to medium volume orders and one to two weeks for orders ranging in the thousands of units. We can also produce a complex design in a few hours to provide samples or prototypes quickly if required.
With 3D printing technologies, geometrically complex designs are now easier and faster to produce than with other traditional means of manufacturing. It allows total designer freedom and enables efficient production of very complex designs.
We can customize your product at any stage of the designing or production process. Flexible at every step, 3D printing allows scaling, material choice, design customizability and many other options to give one of the most custom productions there is.
1: To Start
Provide us with your CAD file, your technical documentation or your ideas.
2: Material Selection
If the manufacturing material is not predetermined, our charts and expertise may help you make your choice.
3: Quotes and Prices
Divided between material costs and services, our FOB quotes will give you a complete account of the overall costs of production.
4:Packaging and Shipping
All our products are DDP and no additional costs exist beyond our final quote. We package and ship our products with the utmost care to assure fast and flawless product arrival at your doorstep.
Cost for low and medium volume orders are greatly superior to other manufacturing methods. Extremely short lead times. Easily capable of producing complex structures with no additional costs. Unparalleled flexibility of production, design and customizability.
In order to present an accurate quote, providing us with a CAD file (.stl preferably) of your product is recommended. If no such files are available, providing us with other technical documentation, details and/or blueprints about the intended product will usually suffice. If you do not have these technical details, we can assist in their creation.
Our services also include easy customization of your intended production. We can aid and advise if needed on optimization of designs or production choices. Feel free to reach out to discuss possibilities and projects at any stage of development.
Depending on the part functionality and intended uses, a wide selection of materials available, all with their specific strengths and weaknesses and their associated technologies. If material selection is not yet achieved for your product, you can either check the following charts or contact us directly to help you make the right choice.

Quotes and Prices
Our prices, as standard in the industry, are mainly dependent on the volumetric material requirement and on the technology used. Ranging from cheap polymers to superalloys, prices can also range from a couple of ¢ per gram or cm³ to multiple dollars. Affecting the pricing similarly, the selection of the 3D printing technology influences both the resulting product and quote. Necessarily, better or specialized technologies will contribute to rising prices.
Other services may be independently quoted such as consulting services and file manipulation or creation. All orders are DDP (Delivered Duty Paid) and shipping costs are included in quotes.
Packing & Delivery
We offer DDP (delivery duty paid) at your address and all fees will be included in the quote initial transaction. Every order has a protective packaging, usually foam peanuts. They serve as a filler to protect fragile items and they create a cushioning effect.
