ADDITIVE TECHNOLOGIES AVAILABLE
Fused Deposition Modelling
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) creates parts layer-by-layer with engineering-grade thermoplastics. FDM is often used to build complex geometries and functional parts, including prototypes, low-volume production pieces, manufacturing aids and jigs and fixtures. Cimetrix offer a broad selection of high performance thermoplastics and can support your large FDM build requirements with a build envelope size of 36”x24”x36” and with resolutions ranging from .005”, .007”, .010” and .013”.
FDM is an ideal 3D Printing Method for:
PolyJet™ technology utilizes a high precision 3D printing process. PolyJet is a layer additive technology with layers as thin as 16 microns (0.0006″) making it an excellent option for presentation models and master patterns for advanced urethane castings. The PolyJet rapid prototyping process uses high resolution ink-jet technology combined with UV curable materials to quickly and economically produce highly detailed and accurate physical prototypes.

Over 150 different material options:
SLS (Selective Laser Sintering)
Laser Sintering (also known as Selective Laser Sintering, SLS or LS) uses a CO2 laser to heat and fuse durable thermoplastic powder to build versatile parts with high elongation at break. LS production parts and prototypes provide lightweight, heat and chemical resistant solutions. SLS constructs 3D-printed parts from nylon (polyamide), which is strong, tough and durable. This material is ideal for functional prototypes and low-volume production. The mechanical properties of SLS nylon parts make them ideal for snap-fit and press-fit interlocks. Another SLS advantage is 3D part nesting — stacking parts accelerates throughput and part delivery.
SLS is an ideal 3D Printing Method for:
Stereolithography (also known as SL or SLA) builds parts layer-by-layer using a UV laser to solidify liquid photopolymer resins. It is commonly used to produce concept models, master patterns, large prototypes and investment casting patterns. SLA is a good general-purpose additive process for a wide range of applications. Models and prototypes are rigid, strong and durable. This technology has a good balance of feature resolution, fine surface finish, speed and accuracy. .

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) fuses powdered metal and alloy materials with a high-wattage laser to produce robust, metal parts. DMLS produces fully realized metal parts, including tools and end-use parts for a variety of industries.Metal 3D printing, with its advanced metals offering, is best utilized in highly complex and involved designs. It can significantly reduce the assembly of designs by consolidating parts into a single build. Materials available with metal 3D printing include popular metals used in aerospace, medical, oil and gas and transportation
