Fortus 900mc

Industrial strength, durability
and scale

The Fortus 900mc is the most powerful FDM system available, delivering remarkable production agility and high return on investment. Produce demanding functional prototypes, production parts, jigs, fixtures and factory tooling with unmatched accuracy, repeatability and predictability.

Think Big

11 identical complex parts on a Fortus 900mc build tray

Production-grade materials

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.

Lights-out production

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.

Customer Success: Thogus Products

Thogus Products reinvented its traditional manufacturing business with a lean, nimble new process that takes advantage of the Fortus 900mc 3D Printer.

“I see Stratasys FDM Technology as the future of manufacturing. We are using FDM Technology to accomplish things we never could before." — Matt Hlavin, President, Thogus Products
