An array of technologies and materials for every step of the product development life cycle allows you to bring your product to market faster than ever before.

Open up new possibilities for your business by changing the way you think about developing products. Compared to traditional methods, 3D printing offers significant advantages for better products with optimized designs.

Faster to Market

Get better results by removing steps and complexity in your workflow, and get real-time, hands-on customer feedback from close-to-production prototypes. Then, get parts on the shelves with low-volume production using our robust technologies.

PolyJet

PolyJet offers unprecedented detail and cosmetic finish with the finest resolution in 3D printing.

With the ability to combine flexible and hard materials and incorporate full CMYK color and transparencies, PolyJet is ideal for custom models and prototypes.

Stereolithography (SL)

SL builds light-weight, detailed parts with the smoothest surface finish. Our proprietary offerings include near-hollow builds for extremely light-weight parts.

FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling)

Urethane Casting

With advanced formula polymer materials, Urethane Casting can produce short runs of your product so you can get to market faster.

Injection Molding

When you’re ready for high volumes, our tooling + injection molding teams are prepared with our excellent project management and fast turnarounds.

We have critical knowledge derived from decades working with top companies to maximize your resources and provide AS9100 and ISO 9001-certified manufacturing facilities to ensure consistent, high quality components.
