6 Types of 3D Printing Techniques

3D printing has valuable

industrial applications, especially if you require rapid prototyping or if you manufacture complex parts. Here are six types of 3D printing techniques we offer at In’Tech Industries. Which ones may be a good fit for your project?


Stereolithography, or SLA, 3D printing is a fast, accurate process that is great for the rapid prototyping of precise parts. It is the ideal choice for the manufacture of medical and dental products. Choose SLA for your next concept model, master pattern, large prototype, or investment casting pattern. We offer a range of resins and finishes.

Require same-day prototyping? Need hundreds of parts per month? Figure 4® 3D printing is a great option for you. Figure 4® is an ultra-fast additive 3D printing technique that can replace traditional molding and cast urethane processes. It is a fast, affordable, and versatile solution for concept models, plastic parts, jigs, fixtures, and other components.


PolyJet is a versatile 3D printing technique that produces a smooth, detailed part that is ready for its end application. If your part has complex geometries, intricate details, or delicate features, or you want to incorporate multiple colors or materials into a single build, PolyJet is a great choice. PolyJet printing can also be used to produce accurate molds, jigs, and fixtures for the manufacturing process.

Fused Deposition Molding

Fused deposition molding, or FDM, is a 3D printing technique that builds components layer by layer from thermoplastic filament. It is a good option for parts that convey a final-product aesthetic or parts with complex shapes or intricate details. Like PolyJet, FDM can be used to produce manufacturing molds, jigs, and fixtures.


Direct Metal Laser Sintering, or DMLS, is a 3D printing technique that uses metal as a medium. The technique can produce metal prototypes or production parts in a matter of hours. In’Tech prints in stainless steel, aluminum, inconel, titanium, and cobalt chrome.


Selective Laser Sintering, or SLS, provides high-speed, high-definition additive printing for parts that require fine features and smooth surfaces. SLS is ideal for large build volumes, parts with complex geometries, and durable prototypes.
