3D Printing Applications

3D printing is a versatile solution for a wide range of applications, from high-resolution models to rapid prototyping, rapid tooling for traditional production processes, manufacturing aids, and even end-use parts in manufacturing.

Rapid Prototyping

Bring Products to Market Faster With In-House Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping with affordable in-house desktop 3D printers empowers you to create prototypes within a day and carry out multiple iterations of design, size, shape, or assembly based on results of real-life testing and analysis, helping you to bring better products to market faster.

Rapid Tooling

Supercharge Your Manufacturing Tools With 3D Printed Rapid Tooling

Accelerate product development, iterate quickly, and bring better products to market by incorporating 3D printed rapid tooling into your development process. 3D printed rapid tooling enables you to validate your design and material choice prior to transitioning to mass production, or alternatively provides an affordable means to produce custom or limited series of end-use parts.

End-Use Parts

Manufacture Custom End-Use Parts and Complex Designs

An end-use part is a good that is sold as a product, used as a sub-assembly in a product, or used as a component in a product. With 3D printing, you can create end-use parts without tooling, making it possible to create custom parts and complex designs in a cost-efficient manner.

Manufacturing Aids

Improve Efficiency With 3D Printed Manufacturing Aids

3D printed manufacturing aids are vital tools for addressing common problems that arise during the manufacturing process. This includes the need for custom jigs, fixtures, tools, and replacement parts. Use in-house 3D printing to improve the efficiency of the manufacturing process, reducing costs and improving production.
