This article is about the manufacturing speeds available for each material - for information on shipping speeds and costs, check out our article on shipping time & costs!
Each material we offer has a unique print and post-print process.

Currently we are offering varied manufacturing options:
Economy, Priority, and Rush.
You can choose the option that best fits you on the first page of Checkout where you can find the estimated shipping date for each of the manufacturing speed options.
The Priority offering prioritizes parts and ensures delivery within the manufacturing time outlined above, while Economy will not be prioritized and will be manufactured when capacity is available allowing for a low cost option for parts that don’t require a specific delivery time frame.
The Rush option is available for Versatile Plastic with the following options and restrictions:
- White Natural Versatile Plastic with a bounding box less than 30x25x25cm
- Black Natural Versatile Plastic with a bounding box less than 25x20x18cm
