Automating Distributed Manufacturing through the Cloud

SD3D technology and IP is comprised of five core categories with the overarching goal of achieving a fully automated FDM process flow with industry leading efficiency and reliability.

Advanced Hardware Solutions

ABE

Our patent pending Adaptive Build Environment (ABE) reduces warping forces to provide reliable large format printing of engineering grade materials such as ABS and PC

FilTrakr

Our proprietary filament tracking module provides high precision closed loop feedback on filament position and diameter to enhance print quality

Dual Geared Extruder Drive

Our patent pending dual geared extruder doubles the filament grip while reducing the overall extruder weight and packaging space for faster and more reliable printing

Auto-Eject Build Platform

Our patent pending non-destructive auto-eject build platform allows FDM technology to be used for continuous operation and high volume production runs
