3D Systems – Why Work For Us?

Ideas from the engineering lab, the doctor’s office, the factory floor, and the commute home are being brought to life with greater accuracy, agility and ease because great minds are being paired with great capabilities. 

From concept to creation, 3D scan to 3D print, prototype to production, 3D Systems’ digital manufacturing solutions are enabling innovators to push the limits of what’s possible… …To reimagine and reengineer the world around us, with complete design freedom.

For the first time, objects are being optimized for the function they will serve instead of the manufacturing process.

An airplane component can now weigh less, yet perform better, shrinking fuel costs and environmental impacts.

Aided by 3D Systems’ technology and expertise, surgeons are restoring hope—and replacing smiles—using digital workflows to plan, practice and instrument the most complex procedures.

Automotive engineers are driving innovation, evolving and improving designs faster to break performance records… and manufacture the next big thing.

Imagine what will come from the engineers, designers, technicians and doctors of tomorrow as they begin to view the world as a field of open possibilities.

We understand innovation because innovation is in our DNA. Born from a spark of inspiration in 1983, we continue to deliver new ways for our customers to bring their ideas to life.

From design shop to assembly line—our digital manufacturing solutions are enabling innovators to work faster and more effectively than ever before….

 We are 3D Systems. We are making 3D production real.

For over 30 years we have bridged the gap between inspiration and innovation by connecting our customers with the expertise and digital manufacturing workflow required to solve their business, design or engineering problems.

Born from a spark of inspiration in 1983, 3D Systems has run on innovation for over 30 years. Co-founded by the inventor of 3D printing, Charles (“Chuck”) Hull, 3D Systems has grown into a global 3D solutions company focused on connecting our customers with the expertise and digital manufacturing workflow required to solve their business, design or engineering problems.

From digitization, design and simulation through manufacturing, inspection and management, our comprehensive portfolio of technologies provides a seamless, customizable workflow designed to optimize products and processes while accelerating outcomes.  With advanced hardware, software and materials as well as on demand manufacturing services and a global team of experts, we are on a mission to transform businesses through manufacturing innovation.

    "Progress in the right direction"

    Former Employee - Finance in Rock Hill, SC
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at 3D Systems full-time (More than 5 years)


    Cool technology and a lot of passionate coworkers. The new executive team is a lot more open to ideas and seems to be driving the company in the right direction.


    The open workspace was by far the biggest issue. But from what I understand, that's finally being handled in phases.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at 3D Systems in July 2016.


    I had a phone interview with the SQA manager, then a phone interview with one of the engineers from SQA, then an on-site interview time was setup. During the on-site interview portion, I was interviewed in three sessions: (1) with the SQA manager and an HR personel, (2) the engineer I had the phone interview with plus a second SQA engineer, (3) some of the other engineering staff that I would be interacting with. Following that interview, I was hired.
