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. Because of this, each material also has its own set of production times (ie. the time it takes for us to make your order before it ships).
Below you can find an overview of the general estimated time for each material family. Please note that these lead times are based on our Priority manufacturing speed.

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 certain materials only. For more information please check out the Rush Manufacturing article.
If you're rush ordering one of our eligible materials, please note that you will not automatically be opted into one of the expedited shipping options. Check out all of our shipping options and estimated times here!
