Rapid Design, Prototyping and Manufacturing of Metal and Plastic Parts Made in America
PartWorks uses the latest hardware and software tools to create a 3D model of your parts or tools and get you into production. Whether you want to: start with an existing part using 3D scanning hardware, such as the Faro® Edge ScanArm and convert the scanned point cloud into a 3D model using Geomagic® Design X and Control software; start from 2D drawings; or design from scratch in SOLIDWORKS®, Autodesk Inventor®, CATIA®, OnShape® or another leading 3D CAD software package, PartWorks has you covered. Our mechanical engineers not only understand design but manufacturability and can help you get your parts right quickly, getting your parts and tools into production and to market with the desired fit and finish as fast as possible.
3D Scanning & Reverse Engineering
Reverse engineering using 3D scan data is the most efficient way to generate a 3D CAD model from a physical object that has any kind of complex or freeform shape. And 3D laser scanning is much faster and less expensive than traditional measurement techniques. Scan data can be turned into a model representing an as-built shape, or to match original as-designed features – including parametric ones. Or, 3D scanning can be used as the basis to create a next generation design by starting with an existing part. If your part is too large to be laser scanned or requires internal components to be scanned, we have access to a variety of other coordinate measuring (CMM) solutions, including probes, CT scanners and handheld color scanners.
With 3D reverse engineering you can leverage 3D scanning to:
- Obtain CAD data that captures an object’s original design intent
- Design a new part to fit to a legacy part either to manufacture in-house or to better communicate designs to suppliers and partners
- Accurately model performance surfaces
- Update CAD models of your tooling to match shop-floor changes
- Recreate molds either for emergencies or low volume batches
- Redesign a part without manufacturing defects
- Modernize your manufacturing process
- Create a 3D Printed version of your part
High speed 3D scanning has an unbeatable payoff –requiring about ½ the cost and less than 20% of time required in a manual process. Take the example of a moldmaker who needs to re-qualify used molds. Instead of using gauges and instruments to manually measure the mold’s dimensions and locations, PartWorks can take a 3D scan of each mold and perform detailed iterative inspections, then provide reports and final documentation that exponentially expedites the parts’ production.
3D CAD Design
Our 3D CAD Design capabilities cover all aspects of your product development process with a seamless, integrated workflow—design, verification, sustainable design, communication and data management. Designers and engineers can span multiple disciplines with ease, shortening the design cycle, increasing productivity and delivering innovative products to market faster.
Our team of experts can work with files from almost any 3D CAD Design software platform, including:
- Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS
- Autodesk® Inventor®
- PTC® Creo
- Dassault Systèmes CATIA
- Onshape, the new collaborative, cloud-based 3D Design platform from the founders of SOLIDWORKS
We can import/export to a wide variety of other formats including STEP, ACIS, JT, IGES, STL, and Parasolid.
It’s our mission to help you quickly transform new ideas into great products, regardless of the 3D CAD tool you use. Given our manufacturing heritage, we understand how to design parts that can be produced with the utmost precision and consistent quality. Then we handle the sourcing, finding the best fit manufacturing option — including point of origin to your specs, including of course, a Made in America option. And we will help guide you on the tradeoffs between cost, quality and speed.
With 3D CAD Design, PartWorks helps you quickly design a part from scratch or redesign an existing part to take advantage of 3D printing or other new manufacturing technologies, speed up product development, reduce manufacturing costs, and improve product quality and reliability.

Our 3D Printing service produces custom prototypes and functional, end-use parts as quickly as nextday or on a schedule that balances budget with urgency. We offer three advanced processes — stereolithography (SL), selective laser sintering (SLS) and direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) — that can build both plastic and metal parts. Whether small parts with precise geometries or large, highly detailed patterns are needed, our 3D Printing service provides designers and engineers another quick-turn option during product development.
Benefits of 3D Printing
- Get your parts as fast as one day
- No tax for design complexity
- No tooling to buy
- Facilitates rapid iteration, shorter product lifecycles
- Produce parts on demand, eliminate inventory
- Customize each part
We work with a wide range of additive manufacturing materials, including clear, rubberlike and biocompatible photopolymers, and tough high-performance thermoplastics. This variety helps you maximize the benefits of 3D Printing. FDM technology works with production-grade thermoplastics to build tough, durable parts that are accurate, repeatable and stable over time. You can 3D print prototypes or production parts in familiar materials like ABS, PC, ABS/PC blends and high-performance ULTEM 1010 and ULTEM 9085. Or for fine detail along with product realism, Polyjet photopolymers may be considered.
We offer CNC machining on 3-axis, 4-axis and 5-axis platforms, mills and lathes so we can deliver quick turnaround for prototypes, parts and master patterns for critical tolerance applications. Our advanced technology rapidly analyzes your 3D models and programs our CNC machines to produce your parts exactly as designed.
Speed and quality guide our CNC machining service. At PartWorks, we manufacture parts quickly, but with high quality standards. We use engineering-grade plastic and metal materials for improved selection, part functionality and cosmetic appearance.
Our network of manufacturers can deliver 3-axis, 4-axis and 5-axis milling solutions. And the turning process can include live tooling to create off-axis holes, flats, slots and grooves. With our strong manufacturing heritage, you can rest assured that the parts we deliver can be used as high-quality prototypes, jigs, fixtures, one-offs or in end-use applications.
PartWorks injection molding service offers custom prototypes and low-volume part production from engineering-grade thermoplastic, metal and liquid silicone rubber (LSR) materials to meet your schedule and budget. It’s often used for quick-turn manufacturing from a prototype up to 10,000 or more plastic parts and as bridge tooling before moving to large-scale manufacturing. We can make either single cavity or multiple cavity molds using aluminum or steel depending on volume, lead-time and other factors.
Our injection molding services encompass:
- Plastic Injection Molding
Our quick-turn thermoplastic injection molding is often used for prototyping, bridge tooling and short-run manufacturing.
- Metal Injection Molding
MIM is a tried and true metalworking process for molding relatively small metal parts.
- Liquid Silicone Rubber Molding
LSR parts are strong and elastic with excellent thermal, chemical and electrical resistance. This thermoset process mixes a two-component compound together, which is then heat cured in the mold with a platinum catalyst to produce a final part.
- Magnesium Injection Molding
Also as known as thixomolding, magnesium injection molding is an established manufacturing process that produces strong, lightweight magnesium parts that maintain detailed features and thin walls.
We can accommodate a wide variety of materials including thermoplastic, metal and liquid silicone rubber (LSR). Along with plastic, we can mold small or large quantities of steel, stainless steel, magnesium and LSR parts.
From plastic to metals, to LSR, let PartWorks handle the design and sourcing of your injection molded parts. Contact us today to discuss your needs or request a quote.
