//Embrace rapid manufacturing
Stratasys 3D printers let you produce low-volume, customized production parts on-demand, without the high cost and long lead times of traditional manufacturing. A diverse material selection and simple post-processing enables you to quickly meet varied production demands. The proven accuracy and uptime reliability of FDM printers provides lets you meet those demands with consistent results.
FDM 3D printing doesn’t require production tooling, so you can bypass traditional constraints to quickly develop and manufacture parts. Print on-demand and save on inventory, storage and costly lead times; making low-volume production economically viable. 3D printing is optimized for customization, taking the cost out of making complex parts. So, your only real cost is the material you use.
Bridge-to-Production. Use 3D printing to get initial production parts into market faster while full-scale mass production capabilities are being established.
Low-volume Production. Meet small-order and highly customized demands quickly with 3D printed parts, without the tool-up costs and long lead times.
End-of-Life Production. Reduce supply chain costs associated with products at the end of their life cycle. 3D printing provides cost-effective on-demand production that eliminates physical inventory.
