[Question] 3D Printing service to use as a supplier

Posted · [Question] 3D Printing service to use as a supplier

Hi, I have recently started to sell my 3D designs and prints online - each one is custom made for a customer.

In order to expand I am looking for a service to print my designs for me and ship them to the customer - so the important part is I need the service to send the part only, without the receipt.

I have looked at Shapeways, 3D Hubs, and Sculpteo but they were either too expensive or insisted on shipping with the receipt.

Do you have any other recommendation for services that ship at least in the US?

Thanks a lot 🙂

    I believe that all the online services send parts with the receipt to the customer.


    So, I think you could either get the part sent to you then send it to the customer yourself, but that would incur delays and additional cost of repackaging and resending, or try to find a local service or a printing company with whom you'll deal directly, and see if they would be willing to send the part to the customer without the receipt.


    Since I run my own 3D printing company, I'd do it if I was in the US, but I'm in France, shipping prices would be a killer.

    In Belgium we have big companies Materialise and Melotte, plus another one I don't remember. These are well-known around the world, and they have international factories. Maybe they have one in the US too? But it's not going to be cheap.
