3D Printing Service

Additive Manufacturing Capabilities

The Widest Range of Additive Manufacturing Processes to Address Any Project Need

If you need a high quality 3D Printing Service, we have you covered. Our 3D Printing service is the deepest in the industry, offering each of the major 3D Printing processes and as broad a range of materials as you can find in the market.  From modeling materials like gypsum and paper, to fit and form resins, silicones, to engineering plastics and metals, we have the material you seek.  Seeking parts for a particular industry (e.g., medical 3D Printing) or size (e.g. large form plastic or metal 3D Printed parts bigger than a breadbox)?  Again, we are well equipped to tackle your program.  


Don't have the time to learn about every process and material we offer...just need some great parts?  

Submit an RFQ via our secure platform and let our experts do the thinking for you, presenting the right solutions for the application. Or email us with a description of your project and we'll be in touch.

3D Printing Service: Process Overview

3D Printing, or Additive Manufacturing as it less commonly but perhaps more accurately known, is the process of building up objects layer-by-layer, adding material as you go. Its emergence as a tool not only for prototyping, but also functional applications (e.g., replacement parts, tooling) and production parts (that commonly wouldn't be achievable any other way) provided the inspiration for 3Diligent. Here, we present an overview of each of the major additive manufacturing processes we offer at 3Diligent. Please click into any of these process options for more information about our options. Or simply submit an RFQ and our team will assess the optimal solution for your particular application.

Please visit our Resources Section for more information about the history of 3D Printing, how additive manufacturing can fit into your business strategies for prototyping, replacement parts, tooling, and production parts that call for additive manufacturing's unique abilities.

“We’ve used a lot of rapid prototyping companies in the past, but I really liked the flexibility, diversity and reach that 3Diligent offers.”

(a.k.a LOM, SDL)

Our Sheet Lamination 3D Printing Service involves laying down sheets of material on top of one another, bonding them together through various means, and cutting away excess material.  Good for full-color paper prints or certain metal applications, like heat exchangers


(a.k.a. CJP, BJ, BJMI)

Our Binder Jetting 3D Printing Service involves the spraying an adhesive binder onto powdered material to build up a part.  Binder Jetting is offered both in Gypsum ("Color Jet Printing," ideal for full color modeling) and Metal ("Binder Jetting with Metal Infiltration," a cost-effective metal printing option)


(a.k.a. PolyJet, MJP)

This 3D Printing service involves jetting photosensitive resin from an inkjet head, then curing upon deposition with UV light.  An outstanding process for high accuracy prints, especially those requiring parts with multiple materials or variable material characteristics across a part


(a.k.a. SL, SLA, DLP, CLIP)

This 3D Printing Service involves selectively curing photosensitive resin in a vat using focused light.  An outstanding solution for parts requiring a smooth surface finish, tight tolerances, and low-to-moderate functional requirements


(a.k.a. FDM, FFF)

Our extrusion 3D Printing service uses a heated nozzle to melt and dispense filament or pellets onto a platform, layer by layer.  A cost-effective option for functional thermoplastic parts.  Commonly known by its Stratasys branded name of Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) or the generic term Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF)


(a.k.a. SLS, MJF, DMLS, SLM, DMP, LaserCUSING)

Our powder bed fusion 3D printing service involves selectively melting powdered material with a focused energy source.  Available for both plastic (SLS) and metal printing (DMLS, EBM, SLM, LaserCUSING, DMP), Powder Bed Fusion offers highly accurate parts and unparalleled geometric flexibility.  It is generally best for parts under a cubic foot in size.


(a.k.a. DED, LENS)

Our Directed Energy Desposition 3D Printing service involves jetting powdered metal into a melt pool created by a focused energy source.  Offered in metal, Directed Energy Deposition (DED) is ideal for part repair applications and a viable option for ground-up building of particular geometries, especially parts bigger than a cubic foot in size
