3D Printing Services and Capabilities
Available from Solid Concepts, a Stratasys Company
3D printing services and capabilities offered by Solid Concepts include: rapid prototyping (the process of turning a 3D CAD design into a real tangible part); concept modeling and evaluation; engineering evaluation; presentation models; 3D color printing; low-volume production; production manufacturing; ID-Light; QuickCast; SLS; SLA; FDM; CNC; Polyjet; finishing; jigs and fixtures; and, more.
3D printing services have become increasingly popular in recent years as an easy, cost effective solution to create real parts from 3D CAD data. 3D printing is a term used to describe additive manufacturing technologies such as PolyJet, Z-Corp 3D Color Prints, Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) and Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). These manufacturing technologies produce custom parts by accurately “printing” layer upon layer of plastic or metal material until a 3D form is created. Additive manufacturing technologies can quickly create tangible parts that allow individuals to touch, feel and assess their design.
