Consumer Products

Get the next big thing to market faster with 3D printing

Timing can be as important as the idea itself. In the competitive consumer products field, in-house 3D printing enhances collaboration, shrinks time to market, and helps keep new devices under wraps until launch.

Get the next big thing to market faster with 3D printing

Industrial designers, mechanical engineers, packaging designers, graphic artists and marketing staff all use prototypes to understand a product’s aesthetic and functional appeal. 3D printing gives your idea the speed to match its brilliance.

For astonishingly realistic appearance in a 3D printed model, Stratasys PolyJet 3D printers work with an impressive array of materials including clear, flexible and rigid. Design reviews and focus-group sessions can be more productive with lifelike prototypes.

For prototypes built from production-grade thermoplastics, Stratasys offers patented Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology. FDM 3D printers work with ABS, PC and other thermoplastics, so you can build prototypes from the same material as the finished product. Get your concept off the starter’s block in record time.

Consumer Electronics

Cable Prototype of Rigid & Flexible Materials

The triple requirements of attractive design, small form factor and high production efficiency make designing truly successful consumer electronics a real challenge. Stratasys PolyJet 3D printers produce models with exceptionally thin walls — 0.6mm or less — ideal for small devices densely packed with minute components.

Sporting Goods

Sporting goods prototypes often require a combination of rigid and flexible materials integrated into one part — think of the various levels of flexibility in a shoe sole — and even a combination of opaque and transparent elements. PolyJet technology 3D printing can produce a part with a mixture of materials in one automated job, so it’s ideal for sporting goods designers.

FDM Technology’s production-grade thermoplastics have the impact strength and durability to withstand the stress of tough functional prototyping.

When prototypes must evoke the look and feel of the finished product, PolyJet 3D printing technology offers a great opportunity. Finely detailed models with a mixture of rigid, flexible and clear materials can be built automatically.
