Online 3D printing service for wear-resistant parts made of high-performance plastics

Our 3D-printing powders and filaments have been proven to last up to 50 times longer than standard 3D-printing materials inside moving applications. We extensively test our engineered composite plastic iglide® materials inside our 41,000-square-foot lab in Cologne, Germany to ensure every 3D-printed component offers exceptional wear resistance comparable to our iglide® injection-molded parts. All igus® 3D printed parts are low-friction, maintenance-free and self-lubricating. We produce custom 3D-printed components for prototypes and small batches, no minimum order quantity required!

Here, you can upload your CAD file as a STEP (STP) file, check the 360° view, select a SLS material or special filament, select your quantity, and see your price instantly. Your order will be printed and shipped within 5 days, depending on the complexity.  


  • Realistic portrayal of the model
  • Quick selection of the right iglide® material – just enter individual environmental parameters
  • 60 iglide® materials to choose from
  • 3D-printed injection molds added as 3rd manufacturing process, including price calculation
