About Rize

Rize Inc is a Boston, USA-based, next-generation additive manufacturing company dedicated to inclusive and sustainable innovation to achieve Additive at Scale. Rize recently released its first product, Rize™ One, which is winning industry and customer accolades. Gartner named Rize ‘Cool Vendor in 3D Printing 2017’ and prestigious organizations like NASA, US Army, US Navy and Merck have chosen the product for supporting their additive manufacturing needs.

Rize One, the world’s first hybrid 3D printer, is a breakthrough combining two discrete technologies, Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and Piezo Jetting. This is enabling companies to sustainably deliver a vast range of custom and replacement manufacturing parts with the highest isotropic strength.

The breakthrough is made possible through Rize’s patented technology called Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD), which enables inclusive multi-material printing with minimal post processing and the sustainable use of safe, non-toxic and recyclable materials. Intelligent products increasingly require parts with variable materials, which include mechanical, electrical and chemical properties. Rize’s inclusive APD process fuses them into unified parts, enabling innovators to deliver unprecedented customer experiences.

Rize solutions combine strength, safety, security and speed, all at the most competitive price point in the industry.
