Whether you bending or thermoforming, 3Diligent's forming service offers high-quality services to meet your rapid-manufacturing needs.

Forming Service Process Overview

Manufacturing metal parts and objects through mechanical deformation is known as forming or metal forming. In our forming service the workpiece is reshaped but there is no adding or removing of material. 

3Diligent rapid-manufacturing processes: bending and forming


Sheet metal working is the process of forming new products by bending and cutting sheet metal to achieve a different shape, surface, or size. In some cases, heat is applied to make the metal more pliable. 


3Diligent example equipment: thermoforming

Thermo­forming Service

In thermoforming a plastic sheet is heated to a pliable temperature, then formed to a specific shape in a mold, and trimmed to create a usable product.
