3D print precise prototypes and tooling that can take abuse

You can’t change the world by staying in your lane — innovation means going off the beaten path. Stratasys 3D Printing breaks down barriers to innovation for automotive manufacturers.

By building durable concept models, prototypes, tooling and low-volume end-use parts in-house, engineers and designers can work more iteratively, test more thoroughly and move confidently into production.

A 3D printed taillight prototype has red, clear and amber lenses.

For resilient prototypes and parts made from high-performance engineering thermoplastics, Stratasys offers patented Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology. For beautiful models requiring rubberlike or clear materials with a smooth finish right out of the 3D printer, we offer PolyJet technology-based 3D printers.
