Enhanced ergonomics. Faster production.

FDM assembly fixtures streamline production because they’re
faster to make and easier to handle than heavier, metal tools.
They can be easily optimized for the specific task and the
user’s capabilities. Rugged FDM thermoplastics provide the
durability while keeping the weight down.

FDM vs traditional manufacturing.


FDM 3D printed tools provide a number of
advantages over traditionally machined parts.

Speed up production.

Streamline production by making new assembly fixtures in hours instead of weeks. 3D printing lets you iterate quickly to optimize your tool’s design. FDM technology includes a broad range of strong thermoplastics so you can choose the right material for the job.

Solaxis –

Reduced overall production cycle from 16 - 20 weeks to 3 - 5 weeks.

Optimize ergonomics.

Create tools that are easier to work with to increase task efficiency and comfort. Strong but lightweight materials reduce tool weight, making them easier to lift and maneuver.

Solaxis –

Reduced weight by 122lbs.

Lower the cost.

Avoid production delays when existing fixtures break by quickly printing new ones on demand. 3D printing also avoids the material and lead time costs of machined tooling.
