About 3DEO

When it Comes to Metal Parts, We Can Help

We obsess about three things: LOW PART COST, HIGH QUALITY, and IMMEDIATE TURNAROUND.

Based in Los Angeles, 3DEO’s breakthrough Intelligent Layering® technology unlocks the potential of metal 3D printing by dramatically reducing final part cost. Despite the low cost, our parts exceed the high industry benchmark MPIF Standard 35 while achieving tight tolerances and a superior surface finish. Intelligent Layering® opens metal 3D printing to all industries by being cost-competitive with traditional manufacturing.

Leveraging its unique technology as a parts supplier, 3DEO sells serial production metal components to manufacturers of all sizes from a wide range of industries. 3DEO is selectively accepting new high volume industrial applications of 100+ pieces/month.

3DEO is an employee-owned company.

World-Class R&D

3DEO’s commitment to technical leadership in metal additive manufacturing is epitomized by the work that goes on in our research and development center. Here, our in-house staff of engineers, scientists, and technicians play an important role in continually developing next generation technologies, new products and improving existing products and processes.

Ongoing R&D programs in such areas as materials science, physical metallurgy, analytical chemistry, applied physics, or process and systems development guide us as we investigate the structure, properties and behavior of various specialty binders and alloys.

Technical Services

In addition to part manufacturing and machine leasing, 3DEO offers technical expertise in sintering, powder metallurgy, mechanical engineering, materials science, and additive manufacturing. We can assist with part design optimization, material selection, specifications, properties and fabrication characteristics.

Our primary emphasis is the development of new processes and products to meet the needs of customers. Whether in response to a customer request through an application engineer, or as part of our product improvement programs, 3DEO seeks to develop new and improved products and processes that help our customers compete in a fast-moving world.
