3D print exact prototypes and tooling that can withstand harsh conditions

Staying in your one way lane can’t change the world. Stratasys 3D printing eradicates barriers to enhance innovation for automotive manufacturers.

3D printing of durable concept models, prototypes, tooling and low volume end-use parts in-house allows engineers and designers to work more iteratively, conduct more detailed testing and move to production stage with more confidence. Stratasys offers Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology for a stronger, long-lasting prototype and parts made from thermoplastics with high-performance engineering properties. For models that require rubber-like or clear materials with a smooth finishing, we propose PolyJet technology-based 3D printers.
