Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing, or 3D printing, is the technological driver manufacturing of the future.

Additive Manufacturing

3D printing as a key technology for new design freedom and faster processes.

In additive manufacturing, the component is built up layer by layer (layer-based technology) from powder materials. The approach to design and construction can be completely rethought. The manufacturing method of tomorrow is already being supported today by CIDEON products and consulting services.

Use Cases

Additive Manufacturing promises fast and efficient solutions for a wide range of applications.


Use rapid prototyping to realize your designs, test prints and various prototype series cost-effectively and quickly.



Lightweight Construction

Save on materials and costs by using 3D printed high-strength and lightweight structures.



Small Batch Production

Use rapid manufacturing to quickly and easily make your ideas a reality with (small) series production. Budgets benefit from not having to keep stock on hand and changes can always be made at short notice.


Go one step further with rapid tooling and also manufacture the required machine and production tools additively. 




Additive Manufacturing, or 3D printing, has become the technology driving the future of manufacturing. Benefits to you:

Reduce Production Times

Save on having to develop and manufacture complex tools or molds. Use additive manufacturing to turn your ideas and products into reality faster.

Reduce Manufacturing Costs

Use fast 3D printing to reduce manufacturing costs and achieve long-term shortened production times.

Reduce Risks

Reduce the risk of production errors by enabling changes to be made quickly and easily during the additive manufacturing process.

Increase Individualization

Increase the individualization of your product portfolio and impress customers with quickly realizable customized products and small batches.

Embrace (design) Freedom

Benefit from a new design freedom at affordable costs – especially in combination with generative design.

Planning Sustainability

Additive manufacturing enables planning by only actually using the material needed to make production more sustainable.
