Plastics 3D Printers

Get Ideas Off the Ground Quickly

Designers and engineers in commercial and military aerospace industries need strong, lightweight, and flight-worthy components for prototype iterations and production parts. They rely on 3D printing and advanced manufacturing expertise to deliver solutions quickly for harsh environments and tough applications. We have critical knowledge derived from decades working with the aerospace industry to maximize your resources and provide AS9100 and ISO 9001-certified manufacturing facilities to ensure consistent, high quality components, capable of achieving FAA certification.

Aviation design specialists rely on Stratasys FDM Technology for prototyping, tooling and part fabricating. FDM technology works with high-performance thermoplastics, one of which is ULTEM 9085, to build jigs, installations, check gauges and end-use flying machine parts. Stratasys additionally offers PolyJet 3D printing for precision prototyping that incorporates rigid, elastic-like and clear materials.

Common Applications Include:

  • Environmental control system ducting
  • Tooling, fixtures, and jigs
  • Housings and enclosures
  • Conformal fuel tanks
  • Lighting components
  • Structural UAV components
  • Gimbals
  • Composite layup
  • Metal forming tools
