3D print precise prototypes and tooling that can take abuse

You can’t change the world by staying in your lane — innovation means going off the beaten path. Stratasys 3D Printing breaks down barriers to innovation for automotive manufacturers. By building durable concept models, prototypes, tooling and low-volume end-use parts in-house, engineers and designers can work more iteratively, test more thoroughly and move confidently into production.

Automative 3d printingFor resilient prototypes and parts made from high-performance engineering thermoplastics, Stratasys offers patented FDM Technology. For beautiful models requiring rubberlike or clear materials with a smooth finish right out of the 3D printer, we offer PolyJet technology-based 3D printers. Get customer testimonials and expert information on how 3D printing can accelerate and improve automotive design.
