What is 3D Printing?
At the root of 3D printing is an additive manufacturing process. In essence, 3D printing makes three dimensional solid objects from a digital CAD file. Using an additive process, like FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) or InkJet-based technology, a model is created by laying down successive layers of material. The result is accurate, functional concept models, rapid prototypes and product mockups.

3D Production Systems
Click on a link below for more information about a specific Fortus 3D Production System:
- Sophisticated software and technology
- Production-grade materials
- Large build capacity
- Fast, accurate and repeatable parts
Only Fortus FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) Technology combines tough, production-grade thermoplastic materials with state-of-the-art hardware and software. Compared to other additive manufacturing systems, Fortus offers unprecedented versatility and capabilities.
Fortus 3D Production Systems use powerful Insight Software to turn CAD files into accurate, stable and durable prototypes, workholding tools or end-use parts. This advanced software automatically generates support structures and build paths. With Fortus digital manufacturing, you can create parts that are up to 300% stronger than those made with 3D printers, even when using the same materials.
Explore Production Series 3D Printers:
Stratasys Ltd. was formed in 2012 by the merger of Stratasys Inc. and Objet Ltd. The company manufactures 3D printers and materials that create prototypes and manufactured goods directly from 3D CAD files or other 3D content. The company’s 3D printers are based on patented FDM® and PolyJet®inkjet-based technologies.
Stratasys systems are used by manufacturers to create models and prototypes to aid in the new product design process. And they are becoming widely used for production of finished goods in low-volume manufacturing. Systems range from affordable desktop 3D printers to large production systems for direct digital manufacturing.
The FDM process creates parts by extruding molten thermoplastic in fine layers to build the part layer by layer. The PolyJet process also creates parts by building in layers but employs an ink jet style jetting process to apply photopolymers in fine layers and simultaneously cures them with ultraviolet light.
Stratasys also manufacturers Solidscape 3D Printers and operates the RedEye On Demand digital manufacturing service. The company has over 1000 employees and holds over 500 granted or pending additive manufacturing patents globally. The company’s range of 120 3D printing materials is the widest in the industry and includes over 100 proprietary inkjet-based photopolymer materials and 10 proprietary FDM-based thermoplastic materials.
Through its network of certified, value added resellers and distributors, Stratasys delivers responsive, regional support around the globe. The company maintains dual headquarters in Minneapolis, Minn. and Rehovot, Israel. Stratasys is a public company that trades on the NASDAQ stock exchange under the symbol SSYS.
