Evolve STEP Technology

Selective thermoplastic electrophotographic process (STEP) is our patented technology. At the core of STEP technology is the electrophotographic imaging and deposition. STEP uses the proven high volume 2D printing process to create a 3D part using heat, pressure and cooling to fuse the part material together layer by layer.

First Viable Alternative to Injection Molding

The Evolve SVP platform, powered by STEP technology, frees you from your existing manufacturing constraints of making low volume production affordable, with the ability to reduce forecast estimates from 12 months to 90 days. From producing new products to part consolidation, we are transforming how the world manufactures.

What is Evolve STEP Technology and How Does it Work?

Unlike other additive technologies that have been brought to the market in past 10 years, Evolve STEP Technology has been designed and developed specifically for production manufacturing. STEP’s architecture utilizes the same three process phases – imaging, alignment and fusing – to deliver throughput and quality similar to injection molding.

One of the many benefits of the SVP platform is our closed-loop process with sensor technology; each layer of the build is precisely aligned on top of the next incoming layer and the correct amount of material is deposited. If an error is detected, a correction is made. This means a higher part quality with both repeatability and scalability.


Our current print material is production-grade ABS amorphous thermoplastic. We use a proprietary process to convert ABS pellets to powder for use with electrophotographic imaging and deposition. The particles range between 20 to 25 microns. Their small size allows for greater detail and accuracy during part production.

Mitigate the Risk of Supply Chain Disruptions

SVP systems can be linked together to enable repeatable parts production anywhere in the world where a system is located. Now, you can mitigate the risk of supply chain disruptions by moving your production closer to your customers and facilities unaffected by materials shortages.

Recycling & Waste

We help manufacturers reduce transportation logistics by moving production closer to their customers. With the SVP platform, manufacturers can move from prototype to production with a single system. No more physical molds, wasted tooling and materials or unnecessary warehousing.

Designed for the Connected Factory

The Evolve SVP platform is purpose-built for the connected factory and Industry 4.0. Systems can be linked together and work with a manufacturing network comprised of connected factories. The SVP also features real-time production operation equipment efficiency (OEE) reporting to support capacity management throughout your connected factory network.
