SLA SLA - Stereolithography

Stereolithgraphy (SLA) uses a high power laser to cure a photopolymer epoxy resin in .004 inch layers. Commonly used to create rapid prototypes.

DMLS DMLS - Direct Metal Laser Sintering

DLMS uses a high power laser in an inert atmosphere to create fully dense metal alloy at 20 micron layers.

SLS SLS - Selective Laser Sintering

Plastic Laser Sintering process that uses Nylon based powders to additively manufacture robust prototypes.

FDM FDM - Fused Deposition Modeling

FDM process utilizes real thermoplastics extruded through a heated print head to realize highly functional prototypes.


Our flagship service. The ProCAST process is perfect for highly aesthetic pre-production cast components with color and texture.

CNC CNC Machining

A subtractive manufacturing process that finds a complimentary home in our suite of additive manufacturing processes.

Hybrid Tooling Hybrid Tooling

A service unique to Forecast 3D. This is a tooled process that yields beautiful cast rapid prototype components with very high tolerances.

polyjet PolyJET

Uses a inkjet style print head that can additively deposit multiple materials and colors.

MJF MJF - Multi Jet Fusion

HP's new 3D Printing technology that builds robust, high precision parts up to 10x faster than SLS.
