Mass Customization With 3D Printing

The holy grail of producing customized products in large volumes is now a reality. With 3D printing, you can scale personalized products for mass-market opportunities without drastically increasing operational costs and delivery timelines. 

Build Strong, Lasting, and Lucrative Relationships With Your Customers

Leverage mass customization to drive innovation and explore new direct-to-customer business models to increase margins and build a stronger relationship with your customers.

Workflows Just as Custom as Your Final Products

Mix and match innovative technologies like product configurators, 3D printing, and automation, and combine them with traditional tools and processes to manufacture mass customized products at an affordable cost.

Step 1


Provide configuration options to customers, create a customizable design in CAD, or create a custom-fit design based on a 3D scan of an existing model, an MRI scan, or an intraoral scan.
Step 2


Produce end-use parts directly with 3D printing or utilize 3D printed rapid tooling with your traditional manufacturing methods. Post-processing and finishing can add additional personalization options and enable longer-lasting products. Forget about the design restrictions of traditional processes—custom parts and complex designs can be produced with 3D printing in a cost-efficient manner.
Step 3


Use the customized part as a component or sub-assembly in manufacturing, or as an individual product, just as you'd use a part produced with traditional tools. Combine the custom part with off-the-shelf components to keep costs at bay and leverage robotics and automation tools to improve the efficiency of production.

Step 4

Scale Up and Be Agile

Scale up as the demand grows without excessive equipment costs, diversify your operations, and answer to the market and your customers faster than your competition without needing to invest in costly tooling changes.
