Plastic 3D Printing
The HP Multi Jet Fusion is the fastest, most cost effective plastic printing solution on the market. It offers superior mechanical strength, surface finish and fine detail. It is the best option for most 3D printed plastic products.
FDM produces inexpensive and durable 3D printed plastic parts with very high accuracy in a wide range of materials. It is well-suited for medium and large parts, less effective for fine details.
PolyJet printers create high-resolution 3D printed plastic products with a smooth finish and excellent fine details. Parts can be rigid or rubbery and are able to be dyed in a range of colors. Great for detailed 3D printed prototypes.
ColorJet prints full-color plastic models, marketing displays or cross-sections. With over 390,000 colors, ColorJet is also one of the fastest plastic printing technologies we offer.
SLS printed plastics can be manufactured with a range of mechanical properties. They are strong, durable and have high heat and chemical resistance.
Able to print products up to one meter in length, large format printing offers the biggest industrial bed size for 3D printed plastics. Great for tooling, molds and direct investment casting.
SLA offers excellent detail and a smooth finish. Because of its high resolution on fine details, it is a good option for creating fully-realized aesthetic models as well as casting patterns.
Metal 3D Printing
Direct metal printing is the best option for production runs of high-quality 3D printed metal parts. It is a great choice for orders that are too large to be machined but not large enough to justify the expense of metal injection molding. Available for a variety of stainless steels and alloys.
DMLS is able to print metal parts from a range of materials, including exotic metals like Inconel and titanium. It accurately produces complex geometries and printed metal parts that are strong, durable and heat resistant.
Metal printing manufactures strong, durable parts out of stainless steel bronze alloy. It is the least expensive option for 3D printed metal and is good for quickly producing small runs of parts or high-quality metal prototypes.
