Using a single CAD model, our engineers created custom parts in five different processes to illustrate the key benefits and differences of some of the most popular 3D printing options. Of these, Xometry offers Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Polyjet 3D, Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), and more! The side-by-side comparison provides details on finish options and material selection for five of the eight 3D printing processes offered through Xometry's 3D printing service to help you design your next project.
