We’ve recently updated our surface finish gallery to include 4 new material samples:

  • Glass Filled Nylon
  • ABSi Red
  • ABSi Natural
  • DMLS Aluminum

These samples serve as excellent reference points for general color, finish, and resolution. Check out our full surface finish gallery to see every option available!

SLA: Somos Prototherm
DMLS: 316L Stainless Steel
FDM: ABS-M30 Blue
SLS: Nylon (Dyed Green)

Additive manufacturing is a great way to produce both prototype and end-use parts, often at a fraction of the price and much faster than traditional manufacturing processes like CNC machining.

Xometry offers a wide variety of materials for our many different 3D Printing processes.
