Design Service for 3D CAD Models

Transform your ideas into manufacturable CAD files with CADmore

No CAD? No problem! We’ve teamed with CADmore— a CAD as a Service (CADaaS) platform and designer marketplace—to create a seamless way to turn your ideas and 2D drawings into manufacturable 3D CAD files within a few days!

How It Works


When you request a quote through Protolabs, if you don’t have a CAD file, or if your file needs a bit of design help, we’ll connect you with CADmore to prepare a CAD file ready for manufacturing at Protolabs. The expertise at CADmore helps bridge the design gap for digital manufacturing.

Fast and Accurate Digital Manufacturing

The entire process is managed digitally, speeding your ideas through to manufacturing. This ensures accuracy, shorter lead-times, and optimized design. After working with CADmore, you’ll receive a CAD file that’s ready to upload to Protolabs. It’s that easy.

Great Parts Start with Great Design

With digital design and manufacturing seamlessly integrated, you get an end-to-end experience from art to part for designs within days, and parts in as fast as 1 day.

Moving from 2D Drawings to 3D CAD Files

3D CAD technology offers richer design context, a much lower margin for error, and a much swifter route to manufacturing.
