Unlock Tooling-Free Production With 3D Printing

With Xometry, you can access advanced 3D printing technologies such as Carbon DLS™ and Nexa3D LSPc®, which offer industry-leading printing speeds and quality. Combined with a vast selection of engineering-grade photopolymer materials, these technologies can create parts that will hold up to end-use applications and environments. With production printing, there is no need to invest in expensive tools or molds, which means economic parts are in your hands more quickly than traditional production processes like injection molding.


Our production photopolymers are excellent choices for parts from various industries, including:

  • Medical & Dental
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Robotics & Electronics
  • And more!

Additive Production Processes

Some photopolymer printing technologies, such as Stereolithography (SLA) and PolyJet, are excellent for creating detailed prototypes or lifelike concept models; however, they are not typically suitable for end-use or production applications. That is where our Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS) and Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing® (LSPc) processes come in. Not only do these technologies print extremely fast and accurately, but their engineering-grade resins cover a wide range of properties that can be chosen to suit your project's specific needs. You can learn more about each of these processes in the section below.

    Carbon Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS™)


    Carbon uses digital light projection, oxygen-permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to produce products with end-use durability, resolution, and surface finish. The digital light synthesis process is continuous, without stopping layer-by-layer, as with most additive manufacturing. This gives the parts isotropic properties, meaning that strength is even regardless of orientation. DLS™ materials are urethane-based or epoxy-based, giving excellent mechanical properties, including elastomer and silicone resins that outperform most additive-manufactured rubber-like materials. Secondary thermal processing steps activate dormant epoxies or urethanes, making them much more robust than UV-curing alone. Along with Carbon's custom liquid resins, this technology unlocks new business opportunities and product designs previously impossible, including mass customization and on-demand inventory of end-use products.


    Nexa3D Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing® (LSPc)


    LSPc® uses a LED (light-emitting diode) array as a light source and an LCD (liquid crystal diode) photomask to selectively shape image layers. The images pass through a membrane on which layers of photopolymer resin are cured. The key to Nexa3D's LSPc technology is their proprietary Everlast membrane designed to minimize peel and separation forces during printing. This specialized membrane is chemically inert and flexible. It does not rely on oxygen-permeable elements for lubricity, which enables LSPc technology to print in a wide range of resins with unparalleled speed and efficiency. Nexa3D's open material platform has various engineered materials, most of which do not require additional post-processing steps other than a standard UV cure to achieve final part properties.
