3D Printing

Breaking Through the Barriers in Manufacturability

Jabil applies its expertise and experience in 3D printing to both expedite the prototyping process and reduce errors before production tooling. 3D printing delivers parts in hours instead of days, giving designers a relatively immediate physical piece to analyze and adjust. Prototypes are fully functional and testable under actual user conditions, pointing out necessary design changes due to situational needs. Using 3D printing during prototyping increases confidence in, and the quality of, final manufactured product.

Automation, 3D printing, and advancements in control and artificial intelligence are transforming the factory of the future. And improvements to 3D printed materials, combined with lower costs, will accelerate its adoption for use in new applications beyond simple prototyping.

Improving Capabilities

Jabil’s designers, engineers, and system architects are constantly conducting cost, material, and speed tests to more effectively match our customers’ needs to the appropriate machine and process. We have conducted research on equipment and strategies using both Stratasys and 3D Systems equipment.

Our cost-effective and comprehensive global solutions — from design, manufacturing, validation, supply-chain management, and distribution through logistics — consistently speed time-to-market, reduce execution risk, and lower total costs.
