Faster. Stronger. More efficient. The aerospace industry is demanding – especially when it comes to innovating new components and products. Prototyping with 3D printing Stratasys 3D prototyping solutions will help you test ideas quickly, accurately and cost effectively.
When ideas occur, being able to test and prove them quickly is critical – especially in the fast-paced aerospace industry. Prototyping with Stratasys 3D printing solutions gives you the ability to solve design challenges before committing to expensive, time-consuming tooling. Plus, our fixtures and flight-worthy parts enable your ideas to go from concept to 35,000 feet in a fraction of the time.

“We decided to 3D print the TransRoPorter prototype, which offered us the least expensive, fastest and most elegant solution. Everyone involved in the project is delighted with the outcome.”
Dr. Kaj Fuehrer, German Aerospace Center
Go beyond traditional words and CAD pictures with highly realistic 3D printed prototypes and gain early buy-in from customers and stakeholders before committing to costly production.
Quickly check your design’s form and fit with mating parts using time-efficient, accurate 3D printed prototypes.
Test your designs in the same environment as the production part. Engineering-grade thermoplastics and flexible materials give your prototypes functional capability under operational conditions.
Based on our strong heritage of FDM technology, the Fortus 380mc/450mc series 3D Printers using engineering-grade materials like PC, ABS and FDM Nylon12CF (carbon-filled).
The Fortus 900mc Production System boasts the largest build tray of any FDM 3D system and prints with the broadest array of FDM thermoplastics.
