3D Printing Applications for Plastics

  • Prototyping

    Solutions that streamline workflow to accelerate digital design, create appearance models and build functional prototypes.

  • Production

    Additive manufacturing at scale for plastic parts is now a reality, with the productivity, durability, repeatability, and lower total cost of operation manufacturers require.

  • Investment Casting

    Accelerate the delivery of high-quality metal products and casting patterns with 3D printed wax and SLA casting patterns.

  • Jigs and Fixtures

    Produce accurate jigs and fixtures with 3D printing to provide a fast and cost-effective way to advance your manufacturing process.

  • Our Software Delivers Results

    Software is the key to transforming data from 3D scans, illuminating designs, and inspecting part quality, and is used every day to enable manufacturing for traditional and 3D-based manufacturing processes. Explore our end-to-end software portfolio today.
“Many components that we manufacture in-house have geometrical complexities that only 3D printing can provide. What we’re able to accomplish through the breadth of solutions offered by 3D Systems’ printers is second to none…”
— David Dicker, founder, Rodin Cars
