3D Printers - capable, affordable, user-friendly

Unleash your creativity and streamline your production with our professional desktop 3D printer range

From design to production, 3D Printers bring agility and aesthetics to every stage of the product development cycle - eliminating design barriers, reducing lead times and costs, getting products to market faster and keeping ideas and intellectual property in-house.

3D Printers empower you to create realistic prototypes, models and products - whatever you can imagine, you can print.

Material properties range from rubber-like to rigid, transparent to opaque, neutral to vibrantly coloured and standard to biocompatible.

How do they work?

The 3D printing process turns a whole object into thousands of tiny little slices, then makes it from the bottom-up, slice by slice. Those tiny layers stick together to form a solid object. Each layer can be very complex, meaning 3D printers can create moving parts like hinges and wheels as part of the same object. The process is a bit like making a loaf of sliced bread, but in reverse. Imagine baking each individual slice of bread and then gluing them together into a whole loaf (as opposed to making a whole loaf and then slicing it, like a baker does). Working entirely automatically, the printer creates a model over a period of hours by turning a 3D CAD drawing into lots of two-dimensional, cross-sectional layers - effectively separate 2D prints that sit one on top of another, but without the paper in between. Instead of using ink, which would never build up to much volume, the printer deposits layers of molten plastic or powder and fuses them together.

Learn why 3D printing is useful everywhere

Aerospace 3D Printing


Application: Rapid Prototyping, Injection Molding

Solve design challenges before you commit to expensive and time-consuming tooling and production. Manufacturing with 3D Printing enables faster iteration, decision making, and response to market changes. Fixtures and flight-worthy parts go from idea to production in a fraction of the time.


Application: Rapid Prototyping, Tooling, Jigs and Fixtures, Production Parts

Go from the design studio to the factory floor in a fraction of the time it takes other development processes. Prototype, test, and produce all manner of tools, jigs, fixtures, and street-ready parts with unprecedented speed and efficiency. Receive the Auto Innovation Series and stay abreast of key 3D printing breakthroughs helping make auto manufacturers and suppliers more competitive.

Automotive 3D Printing

Education 3D Printing


Application: Prototype Modeling, STEM Curriculum, CAD Education, Translate Maths Problems to the Physical World

Making 3D Printers productive and engaging for your students is key to ensuring greater student involvement and raising employability skills. To do this whilst reducing your management overheads requires a solution that is productive across its life time as your student learning needs change.


Application: Preclinical Testing, Medical Manufacturing, Clinical Training Models

Validate device performance on patient-derived 3D printed anatomical models versus existing models such as animals and cadavers. Based on real patient imaging, 3D printed models mimic a variety of tissue properties in a single print. Stratasys Medical 3D Printing Solutions can help you accelerate product development from 3D printed concept models to preclinical testing allowing manufacturers to gain certainty, test anywhere, and mitigate cost overruns.
