IC3D is one of the first 3D printer companies to manufacture our own line of 3D printing filament (the “ink”) exclusively for 3D printing. At a time when filament from other industries such as plastic welding was being used, IC3D recognized the need for a new material with properties made especially for 3D printing machines.
IC3D launched its 3D printing service bureau and design for additive manufacturing practice. The target of this bureau is two-fold, to apply additive manufacturing or 3D printing to traditional manufacturing and to democratize manufacturing by providing access to best quality small and medium area format printing. IC3D is ushering in the era of Medium Area Additive Manufacturing or MAAM printing. This MAAM format has a build volume up to 1 cubic meter, unlike tiny desktop printers, the IC3D MAAMs can print furniture, large parts and tooling, prosthetics and other human-sized objects.
