For nearly 15 years, additive manufacturing, popularly referred to as 3D printing, has been allowing parts, components, and products to be manufactured from a digital model. Additive manufacturing has been applied to multiple industries for its rapid production and relatively low cost when iterating on designs. 

 

 

As you explore this interactive tool, hover over any of the small Stratasys logos and click to access a list of helpful resources. These resources provide you with easy access to relevant material, like webinars, use cases, blog posts and more!  When you toggle the view, you’ll be able to explore the Software side of our factory floor. 

This factory floor was set up to illustrate exactly where additive manufacturing can address the same needs of a traditional factory’s needs by blending various printing technologies such as FDM for rapid prototyping, SAF to fulfill production quantities of goods, and 3P printers for production grade quality parts and more. 

The virtual factory has interactable sections for these operations:

  • Production
  • Environmental Health & Safety (EMS)
  • Maintenance
  • Quality
  • Fabrication
  • Shipping
  • Packaging
  • Assembly
  • And more 

Stratasys has also developed software that maximizes additive manufacturing factory floors hardware by enabling connectivity between 3D printers and MES, and the wider factory environment as a whole. To learn more about how you can bring your additive manufacturing factory to the next level, incorporate additive manufacturing into a traditional factory, or learn how a high performance factory is organized, visit our factory floor!
