Metals

Combining established MIM (Metal Injection Molding) technology and our unique 3D printing platform, go from prototyping to production with the same materials and process.

17-4 stainless steel

17-4 stainless steel combines high strength, corrosion resistance, and hardness, making it widely used in aerospace, medical and petroleum industries. We use it for assembly fixtures and tooling on the Mark X.

D-2 Tool Steel
beta

The high carbon and chromium content of D-2 tool steel provides great hardness and abrasion resistance (but not as tough as A-2). D-2 is often used for cutting tools.

materials

composites

Formed from the combination of two materials, composite parts are incredibly strong and versatile. Our unique fabrication process enables you to print parts that are an order of magnitude stiffer and stronger than typical 3D printed objects.

Onyx

Onyx yields stiff, strong, and accurate parts. Already 1.4 times stronger and stiffer than ABS, Onyx can be reinforced with any continuous fiber. Onyx sets the bar for surface finish, chemical resistivity, and heat tolerance.
