To modernize your manufacturing try our Stratasys FDM® 3D printing service to get strong, durable and dimensionally stable parts from your 3D CAD models, with industry-leading repeatability and reliability.

Additionally, our experts are well versed in the multitude of FDM manufacturing methods and ready to help you find ways to shave days off production cycles, meet industry demands and maximize throughput.

Discover Applications for FDM to modernize your manufacturing

Download the white paper to learn how Stratasys FDM 3D Printers are using in manufacturing, applications include:

Quick-turn prototypes

Test and refine parts before moving into full production. Using production-grade FDM thermoplastics, you can quickly make functional prototypes to validate the design of end-use production parts. In certain applications, 3D printed plastic parts can replace metal for lighter parts and tools without sacrificing strength and durability. Plus, multi-component assemblies can be built in one print, which helps reduce part count as well as labor time and assembly costs.

On-demand tooling

Decrease lead times and cut production costs by up to 90% with a digital inventory of on-demand tools. Unlike traditional manufacturing methods, 3D printing gives you the flexibility to create custom tooling that meets your unique production needs. Build strong, lightweight jigs and fixtures that improve ergonomics and operator safety, produce surrogate parts that optimize your assembly line, or design complex tools as one contiguous component — cutting down assembly times and post-build labor.

Functional end-use parts

Print the parts you need, when you need them. With our FDM 3D printing service, you can get initial production parts into market faster while full-scale mass production capabilities are being established. You can also meet small-order and highly customized end-use part demands quickly without the tool up costs and long lead times. Plus, 3D printing provides cost-effective, on-demand production that eliminates physical inventory — reducing supply chain costs associated with products at the end of their life cycle.
