Materialise OnSite offers the largest online capacity of materials in Europe.
NextDay prototypes are manufactured with our stereolithography technology, using high-quality epoxy. We have built patented NextDay machines with a 0.15 mm layer thickness that work faster than the standard stereolithography-machines. This technology enables us to build and ship your models on the same day they were ordered.
Starting from a 3D file, a part is built slice by slice from bottom to top, in a vessel of liquid epoxy that hardens when struck by a laser beam. Stereolithography is mainly used for “show and tell” parts and visual prototypes.
Starting from a 3D file, Laser Sintering builds parts layer by layer in functional PA12 material. Laser Sintering is used for fully functional prototypes and series of small components.
FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) constructs three-dimensional objects layer by layer in engineering thermoplastics. FDM is used for functional prototypes and prototypes for form and fit testing.
Objet’s patented PolyJet inkjet technology works by jetting state of the art photopolymer materials in ultra-thin layers (16µ) onto a build tray layer by layer until the part is completed. Polyjet is used for models with fine details or rubberlike materials.
Z Corp 3D printing systems produce high-definition, full-colour models quickly and affordably. By printing parts directly in colour, attractive lead-times can be offered.
