Metal 3D Printing

Pair the design flexibility of 3D Printing with the mechanical properties of metal. From production tools with internal channels to aerospace parts with latticed interiors, any metal application that involves complexity can benefit from Metal 3D Printing.

HP Multi Jet Fusion (MJF)

HP spread waves of excitement throughout the 3D printing world with the announcement of the Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) technology. Discover the new technology that is ideal for when you need short lead times, low porosity and excellent surface quality, for functional prototypes and small series.

Laser Sintering (SLS)

Choose SLS for fully functional prototypes and series of small components, as well as complex, functional end-use parts. With no need for support structures, this technology is suitable for interlocking parts and highly complex designs.

Stereolithography (SLA)

With a high level of accuracy and surface quality, Stereolithography is mainly used for “show and tell” parts and visual prototypes, as well as for master copies to create vacuum casting molds. Materialise’s own patented Mammoth Stereolithography machines let us build and ship parts within 12 hours.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)

Choose FDM for functional parts and prototypes for form-and-fit testing. FDM offers durable parts with great stability, and short throughput times, which are also suitable for low-volume manufacturing series. This technology uses industrial-grade thermoplastics, resulting in durable parts with stable mechanical properties over time.

Vacuum Casting

Vacuum Casting is a copying technique used for the production of small series of functional plastic parts. Using two-component polyurethanes and silicone molds, Vacuum Casting is known for its fast production of high-quality prototypes or end-use products.


ColorJet printing systems produce high-definition, full-color models quickly and affordably. This technology is ideal for architectural maquettes or scale models. Parts are printed directly in multiple colors, removing the need for post-production finishing and allowing for fast lead times.


PolyJet is ideal for models that require fine details or rubberlike materials, with smooth surfaces. This technology can produce multi-material and multi-color parts, and can match specific Shore A values. Using photopolymers in extremely thin layers, PolyJet can build accurate and detailed parts with fast lead times and no need for post-production finishing.
