Stratasys is a world leader in 3D printing — and its biggest fan

We are passionate believers in the value and power of 3D printing, and in the change it can bring to the world.

We create the systems, materials and communities that make 3D printing essential for manufacturers, empowering for designers and educators, and inspiring for makers.

About Stratasys

Stratasys manufactures 3D printing equipment and materials that create physical objects directly from digital data. Its systems range from affordable desktop 3D printers to large, advanced 3D production systems, making 3D printing more accessible than ever.

Manufacturers use Stratasys 3D Printers to create models and prototypes for new product design and testing, and to build finished goods in low volume. Educators use the technology to elevate research and learning in science, engineering, design and art. Hobbyists and entrepreneurs use Stratasys 3D Printing to expand manufacturing into the home — creating gifts, novelties, customized devices and inventions.

All Stratasys 3D Printers build parts layer-by-layer. FDM Technology (fused deposition modeling), known for its reliability and durable parts, extrudes fine lines of molten thermoplastic, which solidify as they are deposited. PolyJet technology, known for its smooth, detailed surfaces and ability to combine multiple materials in one part, employs an inkjet-style method to build parts from liquid photopolymers in fine droplets immediately cured with ultraviolet light. WDM technology (wax deposition modeling) produces finely detailed wax-ups for investment casting, particularly in dental applications.

The Stratasys portfolio of specially engineered 3D printing materials is the most comprehensive in the industry. It includes hundreds of PolyJet photopolymers and FDM thermoplastics.

MakerBot, a subsidiary of Stratasys since 2013, manufactures the company’s prosumer desktop 3D printers in Brooklyn, New York. It maintains the Thingiverse design-sharing community and facilitates a wide network of user groups.

Stratasys also manufactures SolidScape 3D Printers and operates RedEye On Demand digital manufacturing service.

Through its network of certified resellers, Stratasys delivers responsive, regional support around the globe. The company maintains dual headquarters in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and Rehovot, Israel. Stratasys holds nearly 500 granted or pending additive manufacturing patents worldwide. It is a public company that trades on NASDAQ under the symbol SSYS.
