3D printing suite

  • Direct Metal Laser Sintering

    DMLS is a metal 3D printing technology that fuses together material to create strong and accurate parts. DMLS technology is ideal for the prototyping and production of aesthetic, durable metal parts.

  • Fused Deposition Modeling

    FDM is a 3D printing technology that deposits material layer by layer to build a detailed and accurate part. FDM is an ideal choice for functional prototypes and production parts across industries.

  • Multi Jet Fusion by HP

    MJF is a 3D printing technology that fuses material together layer by layer to build a fully functional and strong part. MJF is an ideal choice for manufacturing end-use parts and complete prototypes.

  • Polyjet

    Polyjet is a color 3D printing technology that prints vibrant, aesthetic parts layer by layer. Polyjet is an ideal choice for detailed parts and functional products.

  • Stereolitography

    SLA is one of the original 3D printing technologies that cures parts one layer at a time. SLA is an ideal option to print accurate, detailed parts and high-resolution prototypes.

  • Selective Laser Sintering

    SLS is a plastic 3D printing technology that uses energy from a laser to fuse the material together. SLS is an ideal option for complex parts and prototypes and industrial applications.  



Digital manufacturing is the complete package

Quick and on-demand

Prototyping and production have never been so easy. You can quickly upload your design CAD files and receive a quote in seconds. Our digital platform enables 3D printing on-demand.

Design freedom

3D printing technologies allow you to create products with complex geometries unlike traditional manufacturing. You can also customize individual parts and products without the cost.

Cost savings

One of the main advantages of 3D printing is the cost savings. Depending on the quantity of parts printed, you can save a significant amount on labor costs compared to traditional manufacturing options.


3D printing enables the creation of parts at an unprecedented speed. Upload a CAD file, pick your quantity and your part can be printed in just a few steps.

You guys always come through for me and are the best to work with. I appreciate the help with my projects and the great people you guys have working on your team.
