Plural Additive Manufacturing
We deliver and implement state-of-the-art 3D printing solutions that combine the power of industrial systems with open materials and custom design to provide the most versatile and cost effective rapid prototyping and functional low volume plastics manufacturing on the market.
We enable advanced, accurate, additive manufacturing that facilitates innovation, improves time-to-market and eliminates waste.
Co-founders Tom McKasson and Ed Israel are passionate, driven, creative technologists with successful careers in rapid prototyping, manufacturing, product design, and hi-tech products and services at global companies including Siemens, Nike, Tektronix, Daimler, 3D Systems, and Stratasys. From that wealth of experience, we saw a new path emerging with additive manufacturing. We understand first-hand the challenges of cost effective manufacturing solutions and saw a huge gap in the marketplace between desktop printers and the world leading providers of industrial 3D plastics printing.
We'd love to talk with you

The A2v2 takes its time but this results in perfectly smooth walls and accurate details. When you are using it for larger industrial parts and prototypes the results can be even better.
…it just feels solid and precise.
The A2v2 is a machine that costs just a fraction of industry-leading Fortus. Yet it offers an enclosed heated chamber, several different high grade thermopolymers to work with, extreme precision and even up to triple extrusion. All this with a print volume of 620 x 350 x 490 mm.
Their strategy is to increase the quality, broaden the number and type of materials printable and reduce costs all at the same time. And from what I saw, it appears they’re doing so successfully.
I examined sample prints from these machines and found them to be of exceptional quality. The edges are very sharp, surface texture is near perfect.
The tolerances on this machine are quite incredible.
