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.
