3D print­ing is pos­si­ble but rel­e­vant print­ers are cur­rently com­mer­cial-only so­lu­tions with the ab­so­lute cheap­est cost­ing a lit­tle over $10,000. In late 2013, we can ex­pect the tech­nol­ogy to sig­nif­i­cantly drop in price to the point where it will en­ter the con­sumer mar­ket.

The Strata­sys 3D Pro­duc­tion Se­ries brings world-class pro­to­typ­ing, tool­ing and dig­i­tal man­u­fac­tur­ing to de­sign­ers and engi­neers. The For­tus 250mc is the most com­pact and af­ford­able ma­chine, of­fer­ing ad­vanced 3D man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties in an of­fice-friendly foot­print. For­tus 900mc 3D Pro­duc­tion Sys­tems of­fer the widest range of Fused De­po­si­tion Mod­el­ing ma­te­ri­als, in­clud­ing high per­for­mance ther­mo­plas­tics, for amaz­ingly durable, ac­cu­rate parts as large as 914 x 610 x 914 mm (36 x 24 x 36 in.) with pre­dictable me­chan­i­cal, chem­i­cal and ther­mal properties.

The ma­te­rial is grad­u­ally de­posited through a con­trolled noz­zle, layer by layer, build­ing up to a fully formed prod­uct, made of plas­tic or me­tal. ea Imag­ine ag e be­ing be g able ab e to o d draw a a case for o you your phone p oe in Pho­to­shop then print­ing out!
