The Role of 3D Printing for Service Bureaus

  • futuristic clean lines white interior of car, led control panels, with light wood console accents
  • Functional Prototyping

    3D printed functional prototypes enable faster real-world product development and testing to take place before costly investments in production tooling. These realistic prototypes can replicate the end production product, including appearance, function, as well as mechanical characteristics and properties. Manufacturing processes can be explored using functional prototypes to determine part weight, assembly process, and overall manufacturability.

  • Stacked print manufacturing made from Figure 4 Pro BLK 10
  • Direct Digital Production of End-Use Parts

    Production-grade materials and additive manufacturing technologies provide direct production options for custom products, low volume and bridge manufacturing. Save on tooling costs by 3D printing directly from a 3D file, and take advantage of fast turnaround production parts delivery. Produce plastic and metal parts with 3D printing that are simply not possible with standard manufacturing, including topology optimized parts, consolidated assemblies, highly complex anatomical shapes, internal channels, complex surface textures, and internal lattices.

  • Projet 2500 IC casting bracket
  • Investment Casting

    Overcome the geometry and time constraints common with conventional machined molds for wax patterns injection, replacing it with a fast, tool-less process that opens the door to greater design freedom while improving product performance. Digital processes and additive manufacturing technologies are poised to deliver massive time and cost savings. 3D Systems calls this revolutionary set of technologies transforming the investment casting market the Digital Foundry.

  • Indirect Manufacturing & Tooling

    3D Systems technologies can streamline your manufacturing workflows by delivering the design flexibility, quality, accuracy, and materials performance needed for critical applications, such as composite tooling, forming tools, molds, master patterns, and manufacturing aids (jigs and fixtures).
