New surface treatment options are now available!
Our new solvent smoothing is now installed and it's already working wonders. This surface treatment can substantially reduce the visible printing lines and tooling marks leftover by the cleaning process. Parts made with powdered material are left with glossier, smoother surfaces with none of the usual porous texture. It's therefore possible to 3D print parts and make them look as if they'd been molded.

Replacing lost automotive parts
One recent and interesting project we've completed was replacing a missing bracket for a motorcycle. This bracket was lost on the road and couldn't easily be replaced, as it was part of an accessory kit that is no longer on the market. Luckily, the clients still had the components from the other (left) side, so we were able to mirror those 3D models and print a fuctional replacement for the missing items.
Do you have any parts to replace?
Is our 3D scanning service for you?
Some of the more interesting projects we deal with at Fablab Inc. involve reproducing parts that are no longer available.
That old kitchen appliance needs a new housing? Did something break in your bathroom and you can't find a replacement? You have cool art projects or sculptures that you'd like to reproduce? These things and more are now possible!
With our range of scanning equipment, we can provide your 3D models in a variety of quality and formats that can fit all your needs.
Our online services are there for you!

Now you can share access to your 3D files securely with other users. All of this is handled directly on your customer page and can be done with just a few clicks.
You can now let others print your models without worrying about them downloading or changing the files.
Our 3D printing technology options
We have several technologies to print your projects in 3D. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it is important to choose carefully.
Once your models are ready and you have an idea of the materials you will need for your model, you can select the manufacturing method that best matches your other design criteria.
The advantages of 3D printing in the medical sector
The medical field is a sector where there are many constraints that are always evolving and changing with the new technologies being developped. The resources used in surgery or to treat patients must be very precise and personalized. This means that the parts required are limited and therefore very expensive. 3D printing is a solution that is increasingly being considered and which brings a lot to the future of health and allows care adapted for each patient.
New applications of this technology are used creative ways, find out how these could one day help you!
Our superior finish option is now available!
We now offer a superior finish for parts printed in SLA. Chose this option to obtain parts with an irreproachable quality of finish!
We have all the tools and patience it takes to manually remove and polish away visible defects left by the printing process.
Let our production team make your parts as perfect as possible.
Castable Wax resin is now available at Fablab Inc!
We have incorporated a new engineering resin into our material options which is used in the lost wax casting process.
This resin is a material containing 20% wax, allowing reliable and clean burning, without residue or ash. It perfectly reproduces intricate details and results in smooth surfaces characteristic of stereolithographic printing. The printed parts are strong enough to be handled without UV curing after printing, to undergo fittings and to be used directly for casting.
We've added elastic resin to our material choices!
Materials and composites are in constrant development and they create new applications for existing 3D printing technology.
Having a Shore hardness of 50A, this resin is suitable for the prototyping of parts usually made from silicone.
Choose Elastic Resin to make parts that require bending, stretching, being compressed and withstanding cyclical stresses without tearing.
Explore new possibilities with metal printing.
Whether it's improving a part, doing a stress test, or creating a hard-to-mold part, 3D printing can help you produce metal parts more intelligently. These new methods make it possible to bypass traditional production techniques to make high quality components using a single machine. Gone are the days of high overhead expenses such as tooling charges, maintaining heavy machinery, training, and costly manual labor.
New developments are being made all the time that can open new design opportunities, take advantage of these now!
Use polyjet technology to bring new opportunities to your business
Our new polyjet machine is now ready to produce your parts!
Able to go up to a resolution of 13 microns, this technology makes it possible to combine precision and speed. It can also print large parts thanks to its 260 x 260 x 200 mm (10.24 × 10.24 × 7.9 in) area.
Several materials are available to order!
New: The RUSH 24 delay option is now available for this technology.
Receive your parts as quickly as you need using our RUSH options
Using our 3 RUSH production options, your parts can be ready in 24, 48, or 72 hours.
These accelerated lead times will help you validate your 3D designs and build of your prototypes faster.

Sacrificial tooling for composite part fabrication
Although basic shapes and cross-sections are easily manufactured using traditional techniques, complex parts with hollow interiors still present a real challenge to manufacture in the composite parts industry.
Using thermoplastics that can be dissolved after printing, it's possible to better control the dimensions and even simplify components with complex geometries.
There are many advantages to using this material and you can learn more about them here.
5 important elements to consider when printing in 3D
When considering additive manufacturing, there are some important factors to consider regarding the design of the 3D parts. More precisely, these folowing five elements are essential in order to obtain a perfect balance in the creation of your item. The balance between size, resolution, thickness, orientation and choice of material will help ensure the function as well as the aesthetics of your creation.
