End-User Parts

//Embrace rapid manufacturing

Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM) is the process of production without going to tooling. Using a Stratasys production series printer, it may be possible to print end-user parts straight from your 3D CAD data. Using production-grade thermoplastics on a Production series printer, manufacturers can look to opportunities for low-volume production and customized end-user parts, and automate the factory floor.

Designers and manufacturing engineers are free to optimize parts with organic shapes and complex geometries, including hollow interiors and negative draft. With in-house, on-demand production, inventory becomes a digital file at your fingertips.
