3D printing is used in both rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing (AM). Objects can be of almost any shape or geometry and typically are produced using digital model data from a 3D model or another electronic data source such as an Additive Manufacturing File.
There are many different technologies, like stereolithography (STL) or fused deposit modeling (FDM). Thus, unlike material removed from a stock in the conventional machining process, 3D printing or Additive Manufacturing builds a three-dimensional object from computer-aided design (CAD) model, usually by successively adding material layer by layer.

Metal 3D Printing:
Ranging from aluminum, managing steel, steel, various grades of titanium, as well as nickel and cobalt chrome alloys, 3D Systems offers you an extensive portfolio of sophisticated, ready-to-run metal alloys for Direct Metal Printing) with the respective, thoroughly tested build parameters for our DMP printer range.
Plastic 3D Printing:
Process by which plastic parts are manufactured by a laser fusing together Nylon powder, layer by layer. Produced directly from 3D CAD data, the plastic 3D printing process is self-supporting so intricate structures and complex features can be incorporated, including channels, tunnels and voids.
Produced in just a matter of days without the need for any tooling, this cost-effective process generates parts that were previously impossible to obtain economically using traditional methods.
