The machines we use here are designed for industrial grade production.
Typical hobbyist machines cost between $2,000 and $5,000, whereas the machines we use here are on average $200,000+ and up.
Our machines have a significantly tighter tolerances, greater reliability and speed, and larger build size. We are able to print in a wide variety of engineering thermoplastics, from ABS to ULTEM - materials certified for end-use aerospace manufacturing.
We reliably provide the industry's best tolerances for 3D printing, with tolerances of ± .127 mm (± .005 in.) or ± .0015 mm/mm (± .0015 in/in), whichever is greater).
