When you think of 3D printed electronics, what’s the first company that comes to mind? Chances are it’s Nano Dimension, the company behind the famous DragonFly 2020 Pro circuit board 3D printer. Now Nano Dimension is sharing its 3D printed electronics expertise with the world through a new 3D printed electronics service, the first of its kind.
Multiple industries have a need for functional electrical prototyping, and the new service responds to that need, allowing customers fast access to the DragonFly 2020 Pro as well as materials and expertise. Through an online service portal, customers can upload and optimize designs, receive quotes and order 3D printed models, prototypes, printed circuit boards (PCBs) and other conductive and connected parts.
“We are excited to bring to market the first ever digital manufacturing service for on-demand electronics prototypes and short run production,” said Amit Dror, CEO of Nano Dimension. “Our unique additive manufacturing capabilities positions us to be the first to offer professional-grade 3D printed circuitry, encapsulated sensors and printed antennas to designers and engineers within days, compressing our customers’ time to market and delivering valuable services across their entire product life cycle.”
The 3D Printed Electronics Service Bureau will be mutually beneficial for Nano Dimension, which gains a new revenue stream, and electronics developers, who will save time and money on electronics prototyping and manufacturing.
Customers will be able to 3D print on demand objects with both conductive and dielectric materials, including fully functional objects like sensors, antennae, molded interconnect devices (MIDs), PCBs, conductive geometries and more. The service leverages Nano Dimension’s new SOLIDWORKS plug-in, which allows designers to easily design a model in SOLIDWORKS and 3D print it with the DragonFly 2020 Pro.

There are some out there, however, who have both the means and the need to acquire their own industrial electronics 3D printer, and Nano Dimension has just announced its latest customer, an unnamed company described only as one of the 10 largest PCB manufacturers in the world – a prime candidate for owning a DragonFly 2020 Pro. The customer was an early participant in the beta program for the original DragonFly 2020, so has been appreciative of the 3D printer’s capabilities for quite some time.
“Since transitioning from our successful beta program to full commercial sales, we are seeing strong worldwide demand for our DragonFly 2020 Pro 3D Printer, particularly among manufacturers, defense and research institutes,” said Dror. “We are now rapidly expanding our go-to-market initiatives, while continuing to develop innovative 3D printing technologies and materials.”
The customer is a leader in PCB manufacturing, with clients across the globe and across electronics sectors, including consumer, industrial, automotive and more. The DragonFly 2020 Pro 3D printer will strengthen its position and help it to become even more of an industry leader.
