How Protolabs Network helps consumer electronics companies innovate

Competitive pricing, IP protection 
and DFM guidance

The Protolabs Network platform is the easiest way to get competitive pricing for comparing order volumes, lead times, materials, tolerances, secondary processes, and more for your projects. Get all final pricing information upfront, including shipping, quality control and customs clearance (when ordering from the US and EU). We prioritize IP protection on the platform and throughout the process to ensure that your designs and models are completely secure. Our platform is equipped with design for manufacturability (DFM) analysis and our mechanical engineers are always on hand to offer guidance to get the most out of Protolabs Network.

To spec and on time, 
every time

To keep your supply chain consistent and sturdy, we adhere to thorough quality control processes and protocols. Our manufacturing partners go through a complete vetting process before joining the network and on-site quality engineers perform frequent audits to ensure they meet the Protolabs Network Standard. Internal teams in Amsterdam and Chicago inspect parts for functionality and cosmetic specifications, and we handle all custom clearance requirements and ensure on-time delivery.

Customization at any scale

Thanks to our specialized network of cutting-edge manufacturers, we can offer customization options from single functional prototypes to higher volumes of parts that reach final customers. We have talented engineers in-house that can accelerate your innovation process and tweak designs to come off printers and machines looking and functioning better, even if every component is completely unique.


How do we ensure our manufacturing partners are ISO certified?

We do thorough checks of every manufacturing partner (MP) during the initial onboarding process and perform audits on processes and certifications every two years. To source parts from certified MPs, you can indicate these requirements on the platform or contact We’ll match your designs with the right supplier.

How does Protolabs Network protect data and intellectual property?

Our platform is secure and encrypted to ensure that customer data and interactions with suppliers are all protected. All digital models and drawings are safely stored on AWS servers, located in Europe. MPs must sign our Manufacturing Partner Agreement as part of their onboarding, which contractually obligates them to keep customer data confidential. Our General Terms of Sale prohibit orders that misappropriate or infringe on copyrights, patents, design rights, trademarks, trade secrets and other IP rights.

What happens if a part doesn’t meet your specifications?

One of the reasons engineers use Protolabs Network is that we take on all the risks for you. If your parts aren’t up to spec, you can file a dispute claim and we’ll remake your components or refund your order. For more detail on how we handle disputes, you can contact our Customer Success Team. At the same time, we complete non-conformity reports for parts that don’t meet all requirements, with follow-up with manufacturers including root cause analysis and rapid corrective actions.

How do I request materials not listed on the site or platform?

If you want to get parts in specialized materials that aren’t listed on our site or platform, you can send a request to your account manager or contact Our supplier network has access to a huge range of materials, so most of the time we are able to find a manufacturing partner to fulfill your request.
