3D printing lets you customize when timing is critical

When customized equipment is vital and deadlines are non-negotiable, 3D printing gives government, military and defense manufacturers the freedom to design a single end-use part, quickly create low-volume tooling, or build complex, precise prototypes.

For ultra-detailed prototypes with smooth surfaces and flexible materials, Stratasys PolyJet digital materials let defense engineers and designers select the precise properties they need for each part. Multi-material 3D printers produce parts with mixed materials on a single build tray.

For tough prototypes that withstand harsh functional testing, and end-use parts and quick replacement parts that can take chemical exposure and extreme temperatures, Stratasys patented FDM Technology uses production-grade materials, including high-performance thermoplastics like PC and ULTEM 9085.
