P3-d Expands High-Performance “Hercules” Product Line With Addition of Two New Nozzles

July 21, 2017 by Leah Evanovich
CLEVELAND – JULY 21, 2017 – Performance 3-d, a leading provider of high performance upgrade parts for 3D printers and rapid prototyping services, introduces the Airwolf AXIOM and Makergear V4 nozzles as part of its Hercules line. The addition of these products will allow P3-d to offer advanced printing capabilities to a wider variety of 3D printing enthusiasts.

Nozzles are a critical upgrade part for 3D printer consumers, as the standard brass nozzle equipped on most desktop 3D printers are easily eroded by modern filaments. Harsh materials wear down the nozzles, leading to inconsistencies, extruder jams, print failures, wasted time and often expensive material.

VIDEO: Voodoo Manufacturing’s First-Ever Robot-Operated 3D Printer Cluster

July 10, 2017 by Leah Evanovich

Our friends (and valuable customers!) at Voodoo Manufacturing have pioneered a breakthrough for the 3D printing industry: the world’s first robot-operated 3D printer cluster. The robot, deemed Project Skywalker, is launching Voodoo into the future by cutting costs and allowing operations to continue 24/7.

The robot arm functions as a “harvester”, removing plates from printers as necessary and replacing them with new, clean plates. These plates needed to be durable and high-performance – and that’s where we stepped in.

We’ve supplied them with more than 500 precision-cut glass build plates to help ensure their 160 busy printers are operating with cutting-edge efficiency.

Performance 3-d could use your support! (and 10% off coupon)

June 24, 2016 by Jay Evanovich


Early on Tuesday morning my sister lost her house and belongings to a fire. Although the most important thing is that everyone is safe, her family of 4 lost almost everything. We're asking for your help to get this great family back on their feet during this difficult and life changing tragedy. P3-d will donate the net proceeds from all purchases made from now till July 4th to help with clothes, housing and essentials during this time of transition. If you need anything printer-related, now would be a GREAT time to buy!  

If you wish to help but don't need to purchase anything, please donate here or send us an email using our contact page.  

Thank you for helping support the P3-d family during this time of need, and please use coupon code TENfor4th to get 10% off all orders over $25.  

Lastly, although this incident was not 3D-printer related, it is a sobering reminder just how quickly everything can be lost. This is especially important within the printing community, so PLEASE take the time and proper precautions to protect your family and house. Ensure wiring is good, don't leave printers unattended, have a fire escape plan, etc...
