At Stratasys Direct we offer the largest fleet of 3D printing technologies to serve a variety of application needs.

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)

DMLS creates complex geometries and fine features not possible with any other metal manufacturing process.

With alloys like Nickel Alloy 625 and Nickel Alloy 718, DMLS is ideal for complex energy components as well as tough functional prototypes.

CNC Machining

Stratasys Direct has big milling platforms for large accurate parts that require critical dimensional tolerances with engineering materials like PEEK, ABS thermoplastics and a range of metals.

Laser Sintering (LS)

LS is perfect for complex, lightweight models and small-medium sized production components exposed to high-heat. Using specialized Nylon 11 & Nylon 12 materials certified for flame, smoke and toxicity, LS parts can be FR-certified.

Stereolithography (SL) & Investment Casting Patterns

For large and complex metal parts, Stereolithography delivers superb investment casting patterns. Our uniquely formulated polymer, SC 1000P.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

an offshore oil rig under a bright blue skyWill Stratasys Direct Manufacturing sign Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA)?

Yes, we will sign an NDA. We always keep customer information confidential and only release information at the customer’s discretion.

If you or your company do not have a standard NDA we can provide you with our NDA which protects both you and Stratasys Direct Manufacturing.

Do you work with countries outside of the United States?

Yes, we work with companies around the world, and we can ship to anywhere across the globe. Additional information and screening may be required at the time the order is placed.

What quality certificates do you have?

All of our facilities are meet ITAR security regulations and carry ISO 9001 certifications. In addition, we have several sites that carry the aerospace AS 91000 certification.
