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 use 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.
