Additive Manufacturing & 3D Printing


Nexus3 has the capability to manufacture parts using Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) technology.  FFF printers utilize heated nozzles to extrude molten plastic across a cross section of a 3D part, building it layer by layer.


We utilize Ultimaker S5 and Ultimaker S5 Pro machines. Both are large volume, dual extrusion machines that deliver industrial-grade parts.

If you are interested in fabricating your next project using Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology, contact us.  We can design a 3D model specifically for AM or optimize your model. If requested, we can also print your model directly with no manipulation!


The videos below are an introduction to the technology we offer.  If you would like more details on the machine specifications, contact us or:

Nexus3 also offers assembly and finishing services.  If your company needs to outsource additional work, or if you have a short term capacity problem, we can respond quickly to your needs.  Our aerospace manufacturing experience makes us skilled in difficult and critical assembly and manufacturing techniques.


Additionally, we have an isolated room just for FOD (Foreign Object Debris) causing operations.  No FOD producing operations are allowed in our Additive Manufacturing and Quality Inspection rooms.  We follow the guidelines of AS9146 FOD Prevention Programs.

A few of our capabilities are listed below.  Contact us directly if you would like to speak more about our assembly and finishing services.​​

  • Component Assembly

  • Helicoil & Insert Installation

  • NAS / MS Hardware and Pin Installation

  • Lockwire Installation

  • Adhesive Bonding

  • Sanding

Nexus3 utilizes the latest 3D modeling and slicing software available.​  Let us know how we can help.


Fusion 360

Cloud-based 3D modeling software. Includes capabilities such as 3D modeling, 2D drafting, generative design, and stress/thermal simulation.



An advanced open-source slicing engine that integrates seamlessly with our Ultimaker FFF printers. Allows for customization of over 400 different print settings. 



Building Information Modeling (BIM) software for architects, engineers, and contractors.  Nexus3 uses this software for collaboration with general contractors and for architectural 3D models.

Rhinoceros 6

Advanced free-form 3D modeling software.  Nexus3 uses this primarily for applying colors and textures to surfaces prior to 3D printing.
