Silicone Additive Manufacturing (SAM) is a patented technology that enables processing of 100% pure silicones at highest precision, reliability and speed. Our breakthrough innovation comes from the development of a novel Additive Manufacturing technology that enables direct fabrication of pure silicones without the use of moulds – suitable for industrial and medical end-use products complementary to injection molding.

Upload your 3D File
Our webshop accepts a variety of 3D filetypes such as .stl .3dm .obj .prt .zip .3mf .igs .iges and many more. If you’re having trouble uploading your file just reach out and our team will be happy to assist you.
Printability Check & 3D Viewer
Once your part is uploaded to the system, there are four automatic checks that are performed. Open the 3D viewer to inspect your part using the features present.
- Your part is optimized and converted into a different file format.
- Your part is checked if it contains thin walls.
- Your parts is checked if it is one single shell and not multiple loose parts.
- Your parts is checked if it fits into the build chamber.
Important: Check your part in the 3D viewer using the Wall Thickness Analysis. This feature shades your part in different colors depending on if areas are critical. If any area or surface appears orange or red, send a request instead of directly ordering your part.
Important: If certain areas or surfaces of your part shall not have any support structures please inform our team by leaving a comment on your order or contacting our sales team.

What to consider when ordering
Single Item Order Pricing
When ordering a single item, which’s footprint allows us to nest it among other parts on the builplate, the price is affected by how much your parts footprint allows us to place other parts by it.
Having a small footprint part, gives us the opportunity to nest it amongst many other small parts, and thus decreasing the price of the manufacturing cost for your part.
Item Price per Plate
Your parts will be oriented automatically to minimize or inhibit the use of support structures and thus improve surface quality. For this process to go as smoothly as possible, please do not upload your parts with support structures. If your part requires support structures our team will add these beforehand and remove them after printing.
Printing Cost & Height
The printing cost is highly affected by the parts height, meaning that print time is not affected by the amount of parts on the plate only by their height.
- Due to horizontal internal channels, our automatic orientation system might orient your parts with the longest dimension as the Z-dimension, increasing the printing time and thus cost, don’t be disheartened, just request manual pricing.
- Organically shaped geometries might result in wrong automatic orientation and thus wrong pricing.
- For high volume orders of upwards of 1000 pieces, request manual pricing.
