If you can imagine it, we can print it.
3D Printing is ushering in the next generation of product development and rapid prototyping.
3D Printing Solutions by Proto3000
How It Works
3D Printing is an additive manufacturing process which minimizes waste and effort to optimize value and speed. Printed layer upon layer, resin deposits as thin as 16μ (and as thick as 30μ), are jetted upon one another and are immediately cured by a UV light. 3D Printing is time and cost effective and easy to use. Our lineup of Stratasys 3D printers are industry leading and produce ready-to-use (including wheels, gears and axles, etc.), high quality, accurate and quality 3D Prototypes. Stratasys uses dual-jet printing technology, which is capable of combining materials to create new, custom and composite materials tailored to your exact project specifications. Stratasys' 3D Printing technologies print a support material during the 3D Printing process. From plastic rubber to custom polymers, Stratasys' 3D Printers are the only 3D Printers in the world capable of printing multiple materials in a single print.
The Proto3000 Advantage
By keeping your original ideas inside your own four walls, you will eliminate any prototyping process that was previously outsourced. Your product development cycle will be greatly enhanced with a 3D Printer in-house. The time from 3D CAD design to fully functioning 3D prototype (with moving parts) will go from taking days or even weeks (with tooling or molding) to produce to just a few hours. Having Stratasys 3D Printers in your office will save you ample time, effort and money.
Trends and Outlook
According to The Economist, “three-dimensional printing makes it as cheap to create single items as it is to produce thousands and thus undermines economies of scale. It may have as profound an impact on the world as the coming of the factory did....Just as nobody could have predicted the impact of the steam engine in 1750—or the printing press in 1450, or the transistor in 1950—it is impossible to foresee the long-term impact of 3D printing. But the technology is coming, and it is likely to disrupt every field it touches.” (2011)

Stratasys' Industry Leading Lineup of 3D Printers
From the sleek Objet24 to the ultra-powerful Connex500, Objet’s industry leading 3D Printers offer you the best rapid prototyping solutions. Stratasys' family of 3D Printers pushes the power to create into the hands of their creators. These 3D printing systems bring high-resolution, multi-material capabilities and fine-detailed model creation into office environments. Designers, engineers, and innovators alike are now able to conceptualize their designs in a tangible form, adjusting and improving both design and functionality. Objet's patented PolyJet and PolyJet Matrix technology provides a complete 3D printing solution for virtually any rapid prototyping application. With a wide range of materials, the product development cycle is cut short; with end-use parts and functional prototypes right at your fingertips. The Objet Studio Software guarantees that your models are printed smoothly and accurately with the right distribution of materials.
With Stratasys' families of 3D Printers, there is a solution for various rapid prototyping needs, as well as a system that fits the environment it is needed in. With the Desktop family, office friendly 3D printing is taken to the next level. These smaller 3D printers are designed for restrictions in space, but never compromising the quality of prototypes. The Eden family is a solution meeting a variety of needs, including build tray specifications, productivity or set budgets. The compact design and clean process of all Eden 3D printers make them ideal for any office environment. Finally, the Connex Family is the ultimate in 3D printing capability. With unmatched accuracy, and multi-material capabilities, there are virtually no limits to the rapid prototyping possibilities that the Connex holds.
The Technology Used for Our 3D Printing Solutions
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology
Using FDM technology allows affordability and durability by printing concept models with production-grade thermoplastics.
FDM 3D Printers are office friendly and they produce small models in hours and large models in days. The FDM printed models can be drilled, sanded and painted according to your preference to create a perfect finishing of your prototype.
PolyJet 3D Printing Technology
As a 3D printing process, this technology produces amazingly realistic models. The printing technology builds accurate models by incorporating multiple materials into one automated part to create prototypes that look and feel like finished products. With fine details, smooth surfaces, rigid housings, soft-touch buttons, lettering, rubberlike seals and even clear components, your models can look the part at a trade show, a presentation or even during a sales pitch.
