Direct Digital Manufacturing
Take designs from virtual to real in hours, not weeks. From functional prototypes with exacting tolerances, to manufacturing tools that perform under pressure, the Fortus 380mc 3D production systems set a high bar for speed, performance and accuracy
The Fortus 380mc 3D production system lets you build, accurate, repeatable parts faster than ever before. Produce jigs, fixtures, factory tooling and end-use parts, as well as functional prototypes to withstand stringent testing. With four layer thicknesses to choose from, you can strike the right balance between strength, detail, and FDM’s fastest build time
Seven Production-grade Materials
Delivers models in ABS, ASA, PC, and Nylon12 production-grade thermoplastics used in real manufacturing applications.
Easier to Use
The Fortus 380mc features an all-new touchscreen interface for straightforward operation and maintenance.
Faster Production Runs
The Fortus 380mc can build complex parts faster than it’s predecessors, and offers the same fast build time as the Fortus 400mc.

ABS, PC, and Nylon Thermoplastic Materials
The Fortus 380mc builds parts in these production-grade thermoplastics:
- ABS-M30 in six colors for great tensile, impact and flexural strength and environmental stability
- ABS-M30i for biocompatibility
- ABS-ESD7 for static dissipation
- ASA for UV stability and the best aesthetics
- PC-ISO for biocompatibility and superior strength
- PC for superior mechanical properties and heat resistance
- FDM Nylon 12 for maximum toughness
Configurable Build Process
Insight software prepares your CAD program’s STL output to be manufactured on a Fortus system by automatically slicing and generating support structures and material extrusion paths. For maximum control, users can manually edit parameters that determine the look, strength and precision of parts as well as the speed and material use of the FDM process.
Print File Types
Works with 3D CAD Packages that create STL files.

Fortus Case Study
Lightweight Components Are Key to Fast Supercar
Learn how 3D printing aided the design process of Lamborghini’s Aventador sports car by enabling many iterations of prototypes, resulting in better fit during assembly, improved load paths and a better end product.
How it Works
3D printing is as easy as 1-2-3 with a Fortus 380mc printer.
1 File Pre-Processing.
Process your 3D part in Insight Software and send your design directly to the production system. Insight Software operates over a network, so all job status details can be viewed remotely, once started.
2 Part Production
Technology makes it possible to build your 3D part and its support material — layer by layer — from the bottom up on a removable modeling base.
3 Remove supports
Take your printed part out of the printer’s build chamber, and remove supports by hand or wash away with a hands-free removal system.
Why choose a Fortus 380mc System?
Collaborate with your colleagues
What’s more powerful: showing a 3D model, or a physical part that everyone can hold? Through every design iteration, a Fortus Production System turns your ideas into strong, functional models ready for collaboration and testing. Fortus 3D Printers build accurate, stable 3D Parts in ABSplus plastic. They’re ideal for determining form, fit and function in everything from ergonomics to manufacturing processes.
Product Functional Testing
When it’s time to test your concepts, Fortus models stand up to functional testing. You’ll get more quality feedback, resulting in a better product. The Fortus Production System will produce quick, inexpensive models to help you efficiently review multiple concepts right in your office.
Create Real Parts – Not Mockups!
Turn your 3D CAD files into real parts. That means anything from functional prototypes to production-grade manufacturing tools and end-use parts. And do it within hours. With the advanced production-grade materials and exact tolerances you can have with production of your parts, you get products to market faster.
