What is 3D Printing?

3D printing technology delivers unprecedented manufacturing freedom, creating new production possibilities across the industrial landscape. Create 3D printed parts quickly and efficiently, achieving complex geometries and surface detail in a variety of industry-grade resins and plastics, and customize your parts for their end-use with a variety of finishing and post-processing options.

Using our online 3D printing service is simple. Upload your CAD file to our Cloud Manufacturing Platform™, receive a quote, and then move to production with the click of a button. If you’re looking for engineering input, or want to optimize your part design for cost and functionality, our expert team will work with you to unlock your project’s potential.

Explore our 3D printing services

From proof-of-concept prototyping to high-volume production runs, our 3D printing service is designed for flexible, scalable, cost-effective manufacturing – and we can help you select the printing technology that best suits your project. Explore the 3D printing services we offer:

Carbon® Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS)

Carbon DLS™ is a photopolymerization process ideal for high volume production runs.

HP Multi Jet Fusion (MJF)

HP MJF technology is a powder-bed fusion process capable of greater design freedom than other 3D printing technologies.

Stratasys fused deposition modeling (FDM)

FDM is capable of producing relatively low-cost parts with a variety of materials and finishing options.

Stereolithography (SLA)

SLA is a tried-and-tested photopolymerization process, capable of intricate, accurate detailing and excellent surface finishes.

3D printing applications

The 3D printing process serves a spectrum of industrial applications:

Medical end-use

The customizability of 3D printed parts lend them to a spectrum of medical applications while 3D-printed parts produced from biocompatible materials can significantly reduce development timelines for a variety of medical devices and instruments.

Small parts

3D printing is ideal for manufacturing small parts at low volumes, with cost advantages over other traditional manufacturing processes as production scales up.

Low volume production

With no capital expenses for tooling, and no minimum order quantities, 3D printing processes are well suited to volume production in the hundreds or low thousands.

Custom parts

3D print designs can be customized quickly and at a very small scale for functionality and aesthetic. Corporate clients may, for example, tailor individual parts with textures, logos, or serial numbers.
