3D printing in research

enables faster breakthroughs

Researchers are turning to 3D printing to help them craft prototypes. Our 3D printers can create near impossible geometries in production-grade plastics, precise forms with multiple material properties and pretty much anything else. All without confidential information leaving your lab.

Product development | Test validation | Quality control | Custom tools | Jigs, fixtures & gauges | Learning aid | Lab equipment

Why choose a Fabcon in Research?

  • You’re able to verify a hypothesis before investing in an expensive untested solution
  • It improves lab efficiency as assembly and testing is easy with custom-made tools, jigs and fixtures
  • You have total freedom to create parts with complex geometry
  • It uses 90% of the raw materials and creates less waste, making it far more environmentally friendly
  • You can shrink development to just a matter of days
  • Quickly and cheaply test ideas to discover what works


Open flexibility

Fabcon 3D printers are open source, so you can to tweak them to fit your research needs on materials, pastes, liquids or whatever. You’re in control.

Genius of Mr Olsson

Olsson Block was created during neutron research to help print sample mounts from boron carbide. It’s now a standard part on the Fabcon 2+ 3D printer.

Team Fast’s future fuel

The goal of Team FAST is to develop formic acid as the future of sustainable fuel. They use Fabcon 3D printers to create equipment and prototypes
