About us

Swiss Innovation

Spectroplast is an award winning Spinoff from ETH Zurich, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. The team has successfully bridged the gap to meet a longstanding demand on the market: Silicone 3D Printing

About us

With Silicone 3D Printing, biocompatible and certified silicones are 3D printed at highest precision and performance, without the use of molds - saving costs and time - all at zero waste.


We believe that 3D printing has the potential for a paradigm shift from rapid prototyping to mass production of personalised products. Thus far, only rigid materials such as metals, ceramics and plastic have been accessible to Additive Manufacturing. With the world’s first silicone 3D printing, stretchable materials such as silicones are made accessible to 3D Printing. Conventionally, silicone components are fabricated in millions by injection molding or casting that require molds. This is both, lengthy and expensive. We believe that it is time to revolutionize silicone production and move from mass production to mass customization.

The Team



    Co-Founder and CEO

    Manuel Schaffner holds a Master of Science in Interdisciplinary Science and a PhD in Material Science from ETH Zurich. During his PhD studies at the forefront of 3D printing, he developed the knowhow necessary for 3D printing of silicones.

    Our mission is to bring high-precision silicone Additive Manufacturing to the mass market


    Co-Founder and CTO

    Petar Stefanov holds a Master of Science in Information Technology and Electrical Engineering from ETH Zurich. Specializing in Systems and Control, he focuses on creating bespoke material processing and manufacturing platforms.

    I strive to establish Additive Manufacturing as the next industrial manufacturing process for silicones.
