Metal 3D Printing

Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) uses a fiber laser system that draws onto a surface of atomized metal powder, welding the powder into fully dense metal parts.

Stereolithography (SLA)

Stereolithography (SLA) uses an ultraviolet laser that draws on the surface of liquid thermoset resin to create thousands of thin layers until final parts are formed.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

Selective laser sintering (SLS) uses a CO2 laser that fuses nylon-based powder, layer by layer until final thermoplastic parts are built.

Multi Jet Fusion (MJF)

Multi Jet Fusion selectively applies fusing and detailing agents across a bed of nylon powder, which are fused in thousands of layers by heating elements into a solid functional component.

PolyJet

PolyJet uses a jetting process where small droplets of liquid photopolymer are sprayed from multiple jets onto a build platform and cured in layers that form elastomeric parts.

What is 3D Printing?

3D Printing is an additive manufacturing process used for rapid prototyping, producing custom built parts, and low volume production runs. As the best option for a quick lead time at an affordable price or when the part geometry does not allow the use of traditional manufacturing methods and technologies, 3D Printing is a diversely adaptive manufacturing process. Rapid prototypes, mechanical parts, tools, cosplay costumes, game pieces, and jewelry can all be built using various 3D Printing methods.

Advantages of 3D Printing

Building parts layer-by-layer brings about many benefits that open up design possibilities that were previously unachievable through traditional processes like injection molding, cnc machining, or casting.

  • Complex, organic geometries with limited impact on part cost
  • Consolidation of multi-component assembly into a single part
  • No upfront tooling costs
  • Fast production for parts within 24 hours
  • Internal features for advanced heat transfer and flow applications
