The Widest Range of 3D Printing Services to Address Any Project Need
If you need a high-quality 3D Printing service, 3Diligent provides the best options available, offering each of the main 3D Printing services and the broadest range of materials available on the market. From modeling materials such as gypsum and paper, to fit and form resins and silicones, to engineering plastics and metals — we have the material you need.
Looking for parts for a particular industry (such as medical 3D Printing) or size (such as large-form plastic or metal 3D printed parts bigger than a breadbox)? 3Diligent is well equipped to tackle your project.
3D Printing Service Overview
3D Printing is a process for making a physical object from a three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) file. Unlike subtractive technologies that involve removal of material from raw stock, or casting and injection molding where material fills the negative space of a tool, with 3D Printing it is achieved by laying down successive thin layers of a material on top of one another. In this way, 3D Printing - sometimes referred to as additive manufacturing - allows for rapid creation of new geometries and the customization of material properties as a function of the manufacturing process.
Providing the inspiration for 3Diligent, 3D Printing has emerged as a tool for not only prototyping, but also aftermarket spares, custom tools, and even production parts. Here, we present an overview of each of the major additive manufacturing processes that we offer. Click into any of these process options for more information, or simply submit an RFQ and our team will assess the optimal solution for your particular application.
Visit the ProdEX 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.
Related 3D Printing Processes
(a.k.a. CJP, BJ, BJMI)
Our binder jetting 3D Printing service involves 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. DED, LENS)
Our directed energy deposition 3D Printing service involves jetting powdered metal into a melt pool created by a focused energy source. This process is ideal for part repair applications and a viable option for the ground-up building of certain geometries, especially parts bigger than a cubic foot in size.
(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. It is commonly known by its Stratasys branded name of Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) or the generic term Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF).
(a.k.a. PolyJet, MJP)
Material Jet 3D Printing 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. 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 outstanding geometric flexibility. It is generally best for parts under a cubic meter in size.
(a.k.a. SL, SLA, DLP, DLS, CLIP)
Our Vat Photopolymerization 3D printing service involves selectively curing photosensitive resin in a vat using focused light. Vat Photopolymerization is an outstanding solution for parts requiring a smooth surface finish, tight tolerances, and low-to-moderate functional requirements.
