Your One-Stop-Shop for 3D Printing

Materialise believes every designer should be able to create products without limitations. That’s why we offer a wide range of materials and technologies that break design barriers raised by the constraints of conventional manufacturing. Rest assured you’ll always find a solution that meets your requirements.

Our 3D printing capacity, comprising the world’s most comprehensive range of technologies, materials, and finishing degrees, means that we offer you unbiased advice on the best solution for your project.

Laser Sintering

Laser Sintering, also known as selective Laser Sintering (SLS), is among the most versatile and frequently used 3D printing technologies: you can find laser-sintered parts in airplanes, wearables, machine components and production tools.

Common Applications

  • Manufacturing series of small components
  • Prototyping for functional or form-and-fit testing
  • Producing unique, complex, designs as one-off products

Stereolithography

Stereolithography, also known as SLA or SL for short, is the veteran of 3D printing technologies. It’s been around at Materialise since 1990, and continues to be one of the most widely-used rapid prototyping technologies in plastics.

Common Applications

  • Visual prototypes and “show-and-tell” parts
  • Masters for copying techniques like Vacuum Casting
  • Complex, esthetic art objects

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

FDM can build just about any geometry you have in mind. That’s why you can find FDM parts as end-use components in airplanes, as production tools in an automotive factory, and as prototypes just about anywhere.

Common Applications

  • Low-volume production of end-use parts
  • Prototypes for form, fit and function testing
  • Prototypes directly constructed in production materials

Metal 3D Printing

Metal 3D Printing holds a unique position in modern-day product development. It allows for the direct manufacturing of complex end-use parts and facilitates tooling for conventional manufacturing technologies, reducing costs and lead times.

Common Applications

  • Production tools, molds and inserts
  • Housings, ductwork and spare parts
  • Fully functional prototypes

Vacuum Casting

Vacuum Casting is a technique for producing small series of high-quality products, comparable to injection-molded parts, based on 3D-printed master copies. Vacuum Casting works best for end-use parts in limited quantities.

Common Applications

  • Pre-launch product testing
  • Low-volume production
  • Visual models

Somos® TetraShell™

Save time and money in your investment casting projects by directly printing your foundry patterns using the Somos TetraShell software. You can skip the need for tooling and wax models, and produce parts of greater complexity.

Common Applications

Patterns for investment casting or lost-wax casting for:

  • Engines, turbine blades and structural parts in aeronautics
  • Drilling equipment and impeller pumps in the oil and gas industry
  • Art objects such as statues, figurines and busts
