White Paper - A Digital Alternative to Injection Molding
3D Systems’ Figure 4® technology is a tool-less, massively scalable, additive manufacturing process that speeds and simplifies the production of plastic parts.

This digital approach enables designs to go straight from CAD to manufacturing without tooling, facilitates on-the-fly iterations of part designs, accelerates production transitions to new designs without retooling, and rapidly manufactures parts that are too complex for traditional injection molding.

This white paper outlines the evolution of tool-less direct digital production enabled by Figure 4® technology, explains how it works, details benefits for manufacturers, reveals business drivers for the technology, and provides perspectives from an industry expert. Cost and time savings claims are documented by benchmarks that demonstrate the performance of digital production versus traditional injection molding.

In this white paper, key topics include:
  • The evolution of direct digital production
  • 3D Systems Figure 4 technology
  • Benefits for manufacturers
  • Business drivers for Figure 4
  • Perspectives from an industry expert
