Jump from idea to creation faster with a 3D printer from EnvisionTEC.

EnvisionTEC 3D printers are used for automotive, aerospace and general manufacturing needs. From prototyping and design verification to mass customization and injection molding.Whether you are looking for faster, more accurate prototypes for design verification and testing — to help the manufacturing process move faster — or for real mass production of custom products, EnvisionTEC can help.

Our 3D printers and materials are already being used by the world’s leading manufacturers, and some of the smallest ones, for a full range of production needs. The range of manufacturers using our technology is as broad as it gets. Our customers make toys, electronics, bottles, pumps, engines, brake pads, cars, airplanes and more.

Why choose EnvisionTEC over other brands?

Simply put: Our 3D printer make better parts, bar none. Let us print your part to prove it. We’ll put our unfinished parts up against any competitor. Parts made on our machines are more accurate in X, Y and Z. Our technology delivers a smoother surface finish, which means less post-processing.

What’s more, we offer materials that are heat-resistant, impact-resistant, capable of being used in injection molding, flexible enough for snap-fit applications and just plain durable. We’re also willing to work with manufacturers on custom material development, which is part of what our engineering team does every day.

Our machines are extremely well made, precision manufactured in Germany, and highly reliable as a result. When something does go wrong, or you just need assistance with this 3D printing thing, we’re also here to help with outstanding support backed by real engineers with 3D printing experience. Better yet, you can talk to our team right on the telephone.

Breakthrough Material Development

In 2017, EnvisionTEC is launching E-Model, a breakthrough material for the automotive, aerospace and general manufacturing market. Its low viscosity means that the material is highly flexible and can handle thin-walled projects up the biggest, bulky parts. E-Model, which is available in five colors, is also so accurate — and stays so true through curing — that our dental customers use it for precision model work.
