3D Printing Manufacturing Tools

Support lean manufacturing strategies with custom tool production

"We shrank the overall design and manufacturing cycle time from 16 to 20 weeks with traditional manufacturing, to three to five weeks with Stratasys 3D printing."

— Francois Guilbault, owner and president, Solaxis

Deliver just in time

Support lean manufacturing strategies by 3D printing manufacturing tools on demand. Custom tools built directly from CAD can be ready for use in as little as a day.

Read the six ways 3D printing can optimize production.

Reduce tooling costs & risks

Validate tools, processes and end products more thoroughly to avoid costly errors that lead to waste, scrap, rework, and retooling.

See how 3D printing is lowering tool-production costs in the auto industry.

Eliminate design constraints

Create the perfect tool for the job, even if it's hollow, contoured, customized or otherwise too complex for traditional tool-production processes like CNC machining.
