Gotham Rail & Marine has an extensive line of 3D printed parts. Currently, we have a store hosted at Shapeways and the link appears on the bottom of the page.
We have recently begun to shift all of our 3D printing to in house, with the purchase of a resin based SLA printer. In doing so we will be able to drastically lower costs, as well as increase quality.
In the next few weeks we intend to work on moving everything to our own web based store on this site. We are currently in the process of building up our inventory. In the meantime, if there is anything you see in our store, send us an email first so we can work with you directly.

Resin 3D Printed Parts Instructions
Unlike traditional resin and plastic parts, this is a special UV cured resin. After it is cured in the manufacturing process, it has a brittle nature to it. Extreme care must be taken when removing parts from the carrier sprues. Do not under any circumstances break parts off. Carefully nip each sprue support off one at a time with flush cutting nippers or a hobby knife. After you remove them, a light sanding will be needed where they are removed. In some cases, excess resin can “pool” on certain surfaces (typically the bottom sides), and it can be removed by a simple light sanding to square it up. Should you break a part removing it please let us know and we will replace it.
