Newly expanded capabilities, advanced configuration options, and a significant pricing reduction delivers full-suite additive manufacturing capabilities for prototyping & production in the USA.

SAN FRANCISCO, October 17, 2023 Fictiv, the operating system for custom manufacturing, today announced a series of exciting new updates to its 3D printing service in order to meet the needs of its industrial customers’ most demanding additive manufacturing programs.

Fictiv now offers 14 new 3D printing materials for advanced engineering applications, including high-temperature materials such as Ultem 9085, biocompatible materials such as ABS-M30i for surgical guides and medical devices, and a suite of SOMOS materials for optical clarity and water resistance. The new materials are ideal for a wide variety of use cases across automotive, industrial, consumer products, and medical industries, for production quantities, functional assemblies, jigs and fixtures, and much more. All of these materials are available today for on-demand purchase in the USA via Fictiv’s digital manufacturing platform.

Nylon 11 fire-retardant 3D printing material is one of fourteen new materials available on the Fictiv platform for advanced industrial applications.

Additionally, customers will enjoy new online quoting features for 3D printing via the Fictiv platform, including expanded lead time options that allow customers to select from three different production times for improved flexibility and pricing, new configuration options for infill density and threaded insert specification, and improved filtering for material selection by application.

Customers can filter 3D printing materials by engineering applications to find the right material option for their project needs.

Available at the end of October, customers will have access to Carbon Digital Light Synthesis™ (Carbon DLS™) 3D printing technology via the Fictiv platform. Carbon DLS™ printing stands out for its rapid speed, high-resolution capabilities, and diverse range of materials, making it an ideal choice for scalable production across a range of industries.

Expanded partnerships with cutting-edge additive manufacturers, including Jabil Additive, has opened up new production-level 3D printing solutions for ordering hundreds to thousands of parts with industry-best prices. With Fictiv’s digital supply chain infrastructure and quote-to-order platform, it’s never been easier to access the best additive manufacturing technologies to fuel product innovation in all stages of development.

“We are committed to providing our customers with industry-leading 3D printing solutions for R&D as well as high-volume production needs for new product introduction,” said Riley Hall, Director of Additive Manufacturing at Fictiv. “With this expansion, our customers will not only be able to source parts with cutting-edge lead times for 3D printing, with more options than ever, they’ll also have access to all of this at an incredibly cost-effective price point.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Fictiv to provide customers with streamlined access to the highest quality industrial 3D printing solutions,” said Curt Miner, Business Development Manager at Jabil. “Fictiv’s technology platform combined with our robust additive manufacturing capabilities enables a level of speed and scale this industry has never seen before.”
