Request your own materials

We’ve done all of the hard work for you.

With our Designmake Prime service you can request any material you want! And if we can source and make it, it’s yours!

This is a great way to do something different and stand out from the crowd.

Importantly if you only need a small P1 size, you only pay for that small bit. You DO NOT need to buy a huge sheet from the supplier – we’ll do that for you. As always, there’s no minimum orders with us.

Anyhow, as you probably know it can be a real pain finding the materials you want.

So we’ve saved you the agony and compiled a materials guide for you to choose from.

And when you’ve found the one you love, just follow the materials request process outlined in your Prime account.

    While I love all of the ideas people have had to make jewelry from plastic, wood and metal, it would be great if casting wax was an option.

    I have a few projects where I would love to have a piece of hard casting wax laser cut into the components I need, which I could then finish into a piece that’s ready to cast into silver gold or other precious metals that would be too costly to laser cut directly.

    This is a good example of casting wax material that would be perfect for laser cutting.
