FORECAST 3D provides a full spectrum of 3D Printing, Rapid Machining, and quick-turn tooling solutions for producing the highest quality prototypes and batch production runs. A rarity in the marketplace, we run all of our manufacturing equipment in house and have designed and built much of it ourselves. As an SAP Additive Manufacturing partner and the official West Coast MJF by HP Experience Center, we are uniquely qualified in both prototype and production manufacturing.
With the choice of industrial equipment, custom software, quality of people, and the constant evolution of processes, we are passionate about everything that is required to make a modern manufacturing facility like this hum. From one of our very first projects of a rubber overmold for the Apple Newton to our continuing work with a distinguished group of companies and designers, our focus is always on the customer experience and the craftsmanship involved with bringing new products to life.
Back in the summer of 1994, brothers Corey & Donovan Weber started crafting prototypes of what became our proprietary vacuum mixing chamber for the ProCAST process in their one car garage. Brought up by their grandfather Bud, a Detroit machinist, they set about creating an Additive Manufacturing focused model shop at a time when only SLA technology was commercially available. Staying focused on the burgeoning 3D printing space, while always making sure that product output was high quality and delivered on time, the Weber brothers succeeded in growing Forecast 3D. We began offering SLS & CNC in 1998, becoming one of the 1st DMLS service providers in 2007, added FDM and PolyJET in 2010, and became the official West Coast Experience Center for MJF by HP in June of 2017.
As one of the oldest and largest privately held facilities of its kind in the U.S., our focus remains on craftsmanship, our company culture and the customer experience. Today we have 49,000 square feet of manufacturing space, 100 employees, and over 30 pieces of Additive & Subtractive Manufacturing equipment here to serve you. We appreciate your interest and are looking forward to working together.
