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 production 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 production 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.
