Win the Race to Space

The Velo3D fully integrated solution accelerates your pace of innovation enabling an unparalleled ability to reach orbit faster. Produce parts in days instead of months and get to space in months instead of years. Develop high-performance propulsion, turbomachinery, high-pressure storage tanks, and more.

Free your engineers to focus on optimal performance, not manufacturability. Produce the design that you want without compromising to fit traditional design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) limitations. Transition to large-scale production seamlessly by leveraging our global contract manufacturing network or by bringing manufacturing in house with our high-volume Sapphire solutions.

Benefits of Velo3D's Fully Integrated Metal AM Solution

Design Freedom

Get the most from your designs. Velo3D lets you bypass the limitations of conventional AM to metal 3D print the critical parts you need without compromise.


Velo3D provides you with the flexibility and agility you need to be successful. Easily scale production by leveraging our expansive network of qualified contract manufacturers or bring manufacturing in house with our high-volume Sapphire solutions.

Quality Assurance

Developed with input from some of the world’s leaders in spaceflight, our metal AM solution delivers real-time transparency into your manufacturing process layer-by-layer.

Enhanced Efficiency

Design, test, and manufacture with unprecedented speed.

Maintaining Aerospace Superiority with Metal 3D Printing

In this whitepaper, we examine how advanced manufacturing technology can give aerospace organizations a competitive advantage in design and production capabilities while servicing and maintaining legacy assets and infrastructure.

Larger Rockets, Quicker Time-to-Market

With a cylindrical 600 mm diameter x 1000 mm z-height build volume, the Sapphire XC 1MZ is the largest printer available from a leading laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) supplier and offers a powerful, scalable path to manufacturing.

Available in:

Eight 1kW lasers

  • Sapphire XC — 600 mm Ø x 550 mm z
  • Sapphire XC 1MZ — 600 mm Ø x 1000 mm z

Two 1kW lasers

  • Sapphire — 315 mm Ø x 400 mm z
  • Sapphire 1MZ — 315 mm Ø x 1000 mm z

    Flow Print Preparation Software

    Flow prescribes the manufacturing process to Sapphire printers and eliminates the need for feature-specific parameter sets thanks to its in-depth process library saving months of development and reducing the need for specialized technicians.

    Assure Quality Control Software

    Assure provides visibility into every layer of a part’s build through real-time, ~1000-sensor, physics-based excursion detection algorithms and provides unprecedented traceability of machine health, part integrity, and build reporting.

    Sapphire Family of Printers

    State-of-the-art LPBF printers capable of printing today’s most advanced geometries.

    Intelligent Fusion

    The underlying manufacturing process that binds and facilitates all aspects of the Velo3D solution for precision control of the entire print.

    Velo3D Manufacturing Support

    Velo3D is committed to providing every customer with five-star support. This includes comprehensive phone, email, and in-person assistance when required included with all systems.
