Industries Using i3D™ 3D Manufacturing

For design engineers and R&D leaders needing cost effective manufacturing solutions for complex, high value parts in Aluminum, Titanium, Inconel, Stainless Steel, Maraging Steel or a custom metal powder, 3D printing is the perfect match. Aerospace, Rockets, UAV, UAS, Automotive, Firearms, Medical, Energy, and Recreational industries all successfully employ i3D MFG™’s Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), 3D Scanning, and 3D Engineering services.

Aerospace

i3DMFG-3D-Printing-Aerospace-Industry

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is perfectly suited for Aerospace, Rocket and UAV/UAS thermal, weight reduction and complex part requirements. Our most popular metals in Aerospace and UAV are Inconel (thermal properties), Aluminum (thermal & weight advantages), and Titanium (Weight & Strength).

Thrusters & Rockets

Spacecraft & Rockets

NASA recently sent the 1st 3D printer into space. Because of the highly complex geometries and its use of exotic metals like Inconel and Titanium, Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), 3D metal printing, is not only widely used for research, but is considered an cost-efficiency measure.

Firearms

3D-Printing-For-The-Firearms-Industry

3D metal printing (DMLS) is a game-changer for the firearms industry because it allows production innovation, customization, and material efficiencies for military and civilian products and parts. i3D™’s most common DMLS metals used for firearm production parts are Inconel (Thermal & Strength properties), Titanium (Weight, Corrosion & Strength), and Stainless Steel (Corrosion & Strength).

Medical

3D Printing For The Medical Industry

i3D™ medical grade stainless steel and titanium allow the medical community to tailor its products to patient scans, incorporate lattice design structures that encourage bone and tissue growth for improved implant rejection rates, and use freeform design that cannot be traditionally machined but conforms better with the human body.

Automotive

3D Printing For The Automotive Industry

In an industry as competitive as Automotive, innovations in weight reduction, fuel efficiency, and customization are critical. Additive Manufacturing enables the production of components with integrated functionality without the need for tools, thereby cutting development and production costs.

Energy

Efficient fluid flow and heat transfer are critical in the Energy industry. DMLS prints assemblies as a single metal parts with an added benefit in unlimited options for engineers to incorporate fluid circuits built one inside the other, concentric fluid circuits, curved features for improve fluid flow, and lattice and honeycomb geometries that are too costly or simply impossible to traditionally manufacture.

Recreational Gear

3D Printing For The Recreational Industry

For the professional, high-value parts and consumers in the Recreational/Outdoor Gear industry, 3D printing provides cost-effective exotic metal production, R&D flexibility, one-off customization, and speed-to-market efficiencies. i3D MFG™’s 3D engineering, material application, and metal printing expertise offers our clients next generation Design-for-3D innovations.

Tooling

3D Printing For The Tooling Industry

i3D MFG™ prints mold core/cavities in days, giving end-use customers competitive advantages in time-to-market, product development, and small batch production. Our Aluminum Tool Steel molds can be post-processed in all of the same ways as cast or machined parts, from polishing to welding to anodization.
