Rewrite the rules of injection molding with 3D Systems thermoplastic additive manufacturing printers and materials.

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology is at the heart of a growing trend in mass custom manufacturing as well as functional prototyping. The right additive technologies, materials and finishes are transforming manufacturing.

Digital-direct thermoplastic manufacturing offers exceptional quality while opening the door to novel design parameters not possible with injection molding. Thermoplastic additive manufacturing also bypasses the long lead time and up-front investment in injection molding tooling. If you measure your finished parts on the three dimensions: quality, time to market, and cost per cubic inch, in many situations industrial SLS offers a better total value proposition.

3D Systems offers a wide variety of 3D printable thermoplastics, engineered for a range of applications. Materials specialists, designers, and manufacturing engineers can collaborate on getting the exact features they need for both aesthetics and function. These new design and manufacturing options open the door to improved products, new designs, new business models, and new markets. The key is to know when to use thermoplastic additive manufacturing instead of conventional injection molding.
