3D Printing in Aerospace

3D printing has become a vital tool for aerospace engineers helping them to achieve rapid prototyping, tooling and even part manufacturing. It can now all take place on-site, ensuring trade secrets never leave their facility.
– Product development
– Wind testing
– Quality control
– Custom tools & parts
– Jigs, fixtures & gauges
– Small production runs


Why choose an Ultimaker in Aerospace?

  • Engineers can discuss a design with peers or rapidly test the market potential at a trade-show
  • 3D printing shrinks the development process from months to a matter of days
  • You can verify a design before investing in an expensive molding tool
  • You’re able to test ideas quickly and discover what does and doesn’t work. New iterations have no cost penalties
  • It’s easy to personalize and tweak parts to uniquely fit your needs at no extra cost and in just a matter of hours

3D Printing in Architecture
With an Ultimaker by your side everything becomes far more efficient. Within hours you’ll have a concept model in your hands – and at a fraction of the cost too. But why stop at one model? With 3D printing, you can let the creativity flow crafting many iterations until you’re satisfied.

  • Get through reviews faster
  • Urban planning
  • Reduce project timelines
  • Show several designs at once
  • Easily communicate your vision


Why choose an Ultimaker in Architecture ?

  • It eliminates ambiguity when holding a real-life model of the concept
  • Architects can test market potential, discuss ideas with potential buyers or raise capital from investors
  • Your Ultimaker does all the hard work for you. Print one or twenty models, it’s up to you
  • Easily recreate textures, finishes and colors to create a new dimension
  • You can print complex shapes and geometries
  • It creates less waste, using up to 90% of the raw material

3D Printing in Art

Unleash your creativity push every boundary
