For 3D Printers, By 3D Printers™
IC3D’s mission is to enable curious tinkerers and inspire young inventors with the high-quality 3D printing gear they will enjoy, while exploring and expressing their inner creativity to the world.
IC3D customers aren’t just buying the best products. They’re buying the trust, confidence, and security that can only come from a team who designs their products for themselves first, and the market second.
IC3D filament is developed exclusively for 3D printers and manufactured in Ohio, USA, by us. 100% satisfaction and a trouble-free experience are the core components of our culture.
IC3D is one of the first 3D printer companies to manufacture our own line of 3D printing filament (the “ink”) exclusively for 3D printing. At a time when filament from other industries such as plastic welding was being used, IC3D recognized the need for a new material with properties made especially for 3D printing machines.
With our in-house manufacturing process, combined with our expertise and focus, we can provide the highest quality product at an affordable price.
We currently offer our IC3D 3mm and 1.75mm ABS filament in 6 exciting colors! (red, blue, green, yellow, black and natural) Each order of ABS filament comes wound on a plastic spool. Specially manufactured to our specs, the diameter of the filament has an extremely tight-tolerance <0.5mm. Countless hours of testing have been spent to prove out the quality of this material. This ABS is compatible with nearly all 3D printers that can accept 3mm and 1.75mm diameter filament.
PLA Filament – A Sustainable Choice
IC3D also provides PLA filament in 3mm and 1.75mm. This high quality product is made from biodegradable polymer resin and boasts the same tight tolerances of <0.5mm.
Available in 6 vibrant colors (red, blue, grey, white, black, and natural).
In 2016, IC3D launched its 3D printing service bureau and design for additive manufacturing practice. The target of this bureau is two-fold, to apply additive manufacturing or 3D printing to traditional manufacturing and to democratize manufacturing by providing access to best quality small and medium area format printing. IC3D is ushering in the era of Medium Area Additive Manufacturing or MAAM printing. This MAAM format has a build volume up to 1 cubic meter, unlike tiny desktop printers, the IC3D MAAMs can print furniture, large parts and tooling, prosthetics and other human-sized objects.
The MAAM allows for large tools and objects to be printed without sacrificing speed or increasing cost. IC3D has the largest printers in central Ohio and a team of engineering and industrial design talent originating from the automotive sector. IC3D has an absolute commitment to creating applications of 3D printing that converge old line manufacturing with new digital technologies. Specifically in the areas of vacuum forming, stamping, injection molding, casting to make 3D printed tooling, jigs and fixtures and functional parts. 3D printing has been around for well over a decade, yet it has largely been under the purview of university and private R&D. A new generation of machines, computer assisted design software and new materials have ushered AM into the mainstream and IC3D is one of a very few organizations in the nation integrating this technology within the existing manufacturing fabric of America. We have partnered with the Ohio State University, Center for Design Manufacturing Excellence to (CDME) to bring this technology and its applications to businesses of all sizes and from all sectors. Our immediate focus is automotive OEMs and suppliers, architecture and civil engineering.
