Build with many of the same standard, engineering-grade and high-performance thermoplastics you use in traditional manufacturing processes.
Faster build time for large parts
When speed and scale are a priority, Fortus 900mc Acceleration Kits are available to build large parts two to three times faster.
An internal camera lets you monitor progress remotely. Plus, you can get up to two weeks of unattended build time with dual material bays and high-capacity material options.
Flexibility and control
Embed hardware or circuitry, fine-tune part performance, optimize build speed or achieve a smoother finish. Insight software gives you ultimate control.

GrabCAD Print for ultimate simplicity
Print directly from CAD
GrabCAD Print allows you to print directly from your favorite professional CAD formats, saving hours of time usually spent converting and fixing STL files.
Get started fast
Lean on smart default settings, tooltips and notifications to guide you through a seamless printing process.
See what you’re making
Work with detailed views of your model, tray and slice preview so you can make necessary adjustments before going to print.
Insight Software for ultimate control
Fine-tune part performance
Optimize part orientation, tool paths and fill density for advanced control over properties like weight, strength and surface finish.
Manage material use
Customize supports and fill patterns for fast, easy support removal and best use of materials
Start and stop as needed
Program pauses into the build for any reason, such as to embed hardware or circuitry or to switch to another material color.
Manage jobs and monitor production status
Control Center lets design, engineering and manufacturing teams network and share 3D manufacturing capacity to maximize efficiency and throughput
