Innovation and experimentation are trademarks of the aerospace industry.  With 3D printing, prototypes can be developed for even the most challenging geometries in a matter of hours rather than the weeks required in the past.

Quick design changes can be made in a simple tweak to a computer file and the new part can be ready for testing quickly with 3D printing.

Eliminating the need for expensive tooling during the design process can free designers to focus on creating lighter weight structures, boosting efficiency, reducing emissions, and other important factors. EnvisionTEC 3D printers can contribute to 3D printing both prototypes and production parts with a wide range of options in both machinery and materials.

The Perfactory 4 LED XXL offers the highest accuracy and best resolution in the vat polymerization market. It also includes the most powerful and cost-efficient light source. All this, plus the largest build envelope available in a DLP 3D printer.

The Perfactory 4 Mini XL LED Series uses a custom LED light system for extremely high resolution results. This new LED system is more powerful and efficient than other light projector systems on the market. As such, it offers a variety of benefits, such as lower operating costs and crisper black-white contrast between pixels, which means even better final part detail.

The UV Light Curing Box for ULTRA 3SP and Xtreme 3SP includes 12 power compact UV fluorescent lamps for the post-processing of UV sensitive curing resins for industrial, dental, medical, and other applications.

The only DLP-based 3D printers utilizing a true 4M pixel projector with UV optics tuned to 385nm wavelength. Utilizing Artificial Intelligence (AI) to deliver extremely high quality surface finish, the P4K delivers next generation advanced DLP technology in 3D printing.

EnvisionTEC's largest 3SP option, the Xede 3SP produces excellent prototype and production parts with a build area up to 95,045 cubic cm (5800 cubic in.) and a resolution of 100 µm (0.004 in.).

For those in need of a large build area and a higher resolution of 75 µm (0.003 in.), the Xtreme 3SP HD is the ideal solution. From prototypes to production parts, the Xtreme 3SP HD provides excellent surface finish and detail.

The Xtreme 3SP's large build area and high speed make it an ideal choice for service bureau or OEM applications in automotive and aerospace. It has a resolution of 100 µm (0.004 in.), excellent surface finish, and a build area of up to 29,497 cubic cm (1800 cubic in.).

The Vector HD 3SP is ideal for those who need large parts up to 30,316 cubic cm (1850 cubic in.) with a resolution of 50.8 µm (0.002 in.). High detail parts with smooth surface finishes make the Vector HD 3SP an ideal option for a wide variety of applications.

The Vector 3SP provides excellent surface finish and speed with a build size of up to 30,316 cubic cm (1850 cubic in.) to produce everything from concept models to functional parts in 100 µm (0.004 in.) resolution.

The ULTRA 3SP HD provides the same excellent surface finish and speed as the original ULTRA 3SP, but adds an incredible 50 µm (0.002 in.) resolution capability to your builds.

The first and only industrial thermoplastic reinforced woven composite printer on the market today, the SLCOM 1 has a build envelope of up to 762 x 610 x 610 mm (30 x 24 x 24 in.) and is ideal for aerospace, automotive, and many other applications.

3D Printing Materials for the Aerospace Industry

EnvisionTEC‘s ABS Flex White 3SP is an extremely flexible ABS-like 3D printing material for 3SP technology. ABS Flex White is an ideal solution for a wide variety of applications including snap-fit items and assembly applications which require some elasticity.

E-RigidForm is a polyurethane-like resin that 3D prints strong, hard and stiff parts that can be used for prototypes and end use.   Available in translucent amber, gray and black, E-RigidForm has high tensile strength (68-73 MPa) that compares with acrylic, nylon 6 and polycarbonate.  It also delivers good heat deflection and water resistance. With a hardness value of Shore D 87, the same value as a cast urethane plastic, E-RigidForm is a versatile and tough material that is ideal for a wide range of industrial and consumer applications.

This advanced, engineering-grade material delivers large castable patterns and functional prototypes with best-in-class accuracy and surface finish. FormCast is formulated for use on EnvisionTEC's 3SP family of printers.

E-Rigid PU is a polyurethane-like resin that 3D prints end-use and prototype parts that compete with injection molded plastics.  Available in black, natural and white, E-Rigid PU is hard and stiff but also maintains good strength, marked by flexibility and impact resistance. With a Shore D hardness values similar to the value as a cast urethane plastic, E-Rigid PU is a versatile and tough material. It is also an excellent solution for 3D printing dental diagnostic waxups.

EnvisionTEC’s E-Poxy is a partially biosourced, tough, dual-cure material that delivers strong, thin-walled final products. E-Poxy offers a good relationship between flexibility, hardness and heat resistance that is also ideal for connectors, among other objects.

ABS Hi-Impact 3SP is a tough material, suitable for high quality prototypes of items in categories such as automotive and consumer goods as well as stable enough for production-quality end use parts.
