Complex geometries with post-processing flexibility
Our 3D Printing Capabilities
Carbon® Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS)
Carbon® Digital Light Synthesis™ is ideal for developing high-fidelity prototypes and functional parts with isotropic properties, complex geometries and excellent surface finishes. Parts manufactured with DLS possess similar strength and mechanical properties to those manufactured via injection molding.
Multi Jet Fusion (MJF)
Multi Jet Fusion is capable of generating functional, chemically-resistant and highly dense parts. This makes MJF ideal for watertight applications, enclosures and other parts that have complex assemblies.
Parts can also be printed in full color, allowing designers to test the aesthetics of a product without the lead times or costs of post-processing.
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
Fused Deposition Modeling is one of the most frequently used additive technologies and is widely relied on for its ability to produce strong and cost-effective parts. FDM is also suitable for larger build sizes than other additive technologies.
Stereolithography is a tried-and-true additive manufacturing technology for many design and engineering teams. It’s fast, affordable and widely available. While SLA is not typically suitable for high-performance applications, its high-quality surface finishes and accurate detailing make it a popular option for prototypes.
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) and Selective Laser Melting (SLM)
Direct Metal Laser Sintering and Selective Laser Melting utilize high-powered lasers to selectively melt and fuse metal powder to produce parts with high levels of accuracy and tight dimensional tolerances. This technology creates parts with excellent durability and robust mechanical properties.

Typical 3D Printing Uses
3D printing offers unprecedented design versatility and the potential to manufacture parts using a variety of materials with speed and accuracy. Our 3D printing technologies are capable of achieving complex geometries and intricate dimensions without hard tooling or the production considerations of full manufacturing runs.
3D printing is ideal for manufacturing small parts at low volumes, with cost advantages over traditional manufacturing processes as production scales up. With no capital expenses for tooling and no minimum order quantities, 3D printing processes are well suited to volume production in the hundreds or low thousands.
3D printed designs can be customized quickly and at a very small scale for functionality and aesthetics — for example, adding textures, logos or serial numbers directly to parts without the need for post-processing.
