About 3DE – Florida manufacturing engineering design innovative leaders 

3DE was founded in Pompano Beach FL in 1996 and has established a national reputation for being a premier rapid prototype and rapid manufacturer concern across many industries.

It was the 1st large capacity Rapid Prototype Center in Florida and has 20-years of continuous operations.

It maintains a diverse application portfolio to support both development and manufacturing programs in industries such as Aerospace, Consumer, Medical, Electronic, Marine and Automotive.

3DE’s mission has remained steadfast since opening its doors in 1996:

“To dramatically reduce customer’s time and cost to market through innovative prototype and manufacturing applications.”

What our customers are saying:

I approached 3DE to help me with an R&D program that utilized high precision 3D printed parts. The parts required features that tested the limits of state-of-the-art additive manufacturing techniques. I reached out to several companies regarding this task, and 3DE rose to the challenge. They not only accurately produced the complex geometries I needed, but also worked with me to increase part producibilty. 3DE offered suggestions about alternative materials and assembly processes that reduced risk and part cost while increasing the product yield. 3DE definitely goes the extra mile for customer satisfaction. Due to the fragile nature of these parts, 3DE offered to hand deliver them to ensure the part I received was in pristine condition. Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with 3DE on this program, and will absolutely look to them on future programs. I would highly recommend 3DE to any one in need of 3D printing, rapid prototyping, or help with design-for-manufacturing on their projects.
