3D printing for defense
Deployable end-to-end production
Ultimaker 3D printers can be found onboard joint logistics support ships, in the back of military support vehicles, even in flight cases deployable to staging areas at a moment's notice.
Such a powerful, affordable, and self-contained manufacturing platform unlocks incredible flexibility to supply parts exactly when and where they are needed, allowing you to take the lead in innovation and operational readiness – while other defense organizations wait for parts delivery.
Not only does the Dutch Air Force use 3D printing to create custom tools to efficiently maintain their fleet of helicopters, fighter jets, and cargo planes. They also teach new engineers the easy-to-use 3D printing workflow and how to spot new applications opportunities. Get all the details in the success story.
