3D Printing in

Innovation never happened so fast

With an Ultimaker you can 3D print highly accurate, functional prototypes or tools that can withstand lots of abuse. This gives engineers and designers the ability to improve and test designs quickly. And it cuts down lead times to days, instead of weeks compared to traditional methods.

  • Concept models
  • Functional testing
  • Custom tools & parts
  • Jigs, fixtures & gauges
  • Small production runs

Validate designs

A 3D printed concept model communicates in a way a CAD drawing never could. It feels real and is great for testing a product’s features and aesthetics.

Functional prototypes

Going into production is a costly affair. 3D printing let’s you test and revise your design at every stage so you can verify manufacturability.
