3DEO in the News: 3DEO Achieves ISO 9001:2015 for quality management systems

Posted by 3DEO on May 22, 2020 2:58:25 PM

“The ISO 9001 certification is a terrific milestone for 3DEO. A strong quality management system is the backbone of any world-class production line,” commented Matt Petros, CEO of 3DEO. “The ISO certification marks an important step in realizing 3DEO’s long-term vision of leveraging next-generation technologies to build the world’s highest quality, data-driven factory of the future. In the previous generation of manufacturing, spot checks and random sampling were best of class. 3DEO is building a dynamic production line with real-time streaming data that allows ongoing monitoring and end-to-end closed-loop feedback. For 3DEO, ISO is the starting point of what we expect to become the next generation of manufacturing.”

3DEO Posts Triple Digit Annual Growth with Next Generation Metal 3D Printing

Los Angeles, CA: May 5, 2020. 3DEO started as a 3D printing company with its revolutionary metal 3D printing technology, Intelligent Layering®, at the core. But in order to compete in high-volume traditional manufacturing, the company evolved into a vertically integrated, next generation factory. This new business model meant manufacturers could gain the cost savings, design freedom, and manufacturing flexibility they need to compete – without having to shell out millions of dollars for a metal 3D printer and the supporting infrastructure.

As evidenced by 3DEO’s success metrics for 2019, this paradigm shift could be a forerunner to building the factory of the future.

What are Your Options for Improved Surface Finishes After 3D Printing?

Posted by 3DEO on Jan 8, 2020 9:38:16 AM

As you may or may not know, the Intelligent Layering, a proprietary technology developed by 3DEO, provides the best as-printed surface finish in metal 3D printing. Customers have compared our surface finish to a "very nice cast finish" in that it's matte silver and silky smooth. While it's good enough in the as-printed state for many applications, there are also a number of options to improve or change the surface post print.

This is the REAL Obstacle for Production Metal 3D Printing

Posted by 3DEO on Dec 4, 2019 7:24:57 AM

You might not think that a 3D printer and a sculptor have anything in common, but you’d be wrong. While 3D printing companies usually focus on the automated parts of their process, there can be a tremendous amount of labor and post-processing required to finish a part. This depends on the metal 3D printing process, of course, but the idea is generally the same--parts require a lot of finishing work after the print. While such things are usually straight-forward, the flexibility of AM and importance of post-processing adds another layer of complexity to the process.

Understanding Surface Finish in Metal 3D Printing

Posted by 3DEO on Jun 4, 2018 1:13:21 PM

While metal AM brings with it a host of positive advantages, it’s important to understand the realities of as-printed surface roughness. This understanding will help design/engineering teams understand the costs associated with bringing 3D printed parts to a suitable finish.


Metal additive manufacturing is quickly making a name for itself as an up-and-coming manufacturing technology. The shift in transitioning from traditional manufacturing to metal 3D printing is being driven by a variety of advantages, including product-development flexibility and the ability to produce parts so complex they’d be impossible using conventional methods. While these positives are significant, there’s one area in which metal AM has historically struggled relative to other techniques: surface finish.
