About Us

An Evolving Heritage

Leveraging innovation, rich history and the leadership position in Additive Manufacturing, Evolve Additive Solutions, born out of Stratasys, is reinventing Additive Manufacturing once again.

What started in 2009 as a research project led by Steve Chillscyzn has turned into a robust technology platform that will change the way manufacturers across many industries produce products made with engineering plastics.


Evolve Additive Solution is an organization whose mission is to produce innovative manufacturing solutions that enable customers to manufacture in revolutionary new ways. Evolve is pioneering the manufacturing market with technologies and solutions centered around production applications with real-world thermoplastics. Our revolutionary STEP technology will radically improve manufacturing and enable disruptive new business models for organizations by unlocking the full capabilities of Additive Manufacturing. 

Our goal is to help companies transform the way they meet the demands of today's customers. Customers whose needs require immediate response, customization and high-quality parts at a cost that meets their budget and requirements.  For certain volumes, conventional manufacturing just can't deliver on this promise without making a sacrifice somewhere - price, quality, etc. With Evolve Additive Solutions, OEMs and manufacturers now have a technology platform that allows them to be agile and leading edge, all while realizing profits and delivering on the expectations of their customers.


With 4 PhDs, 21 engineers, 200+ years of 2D printing expertise and 100+ years of additive manufacturing experience, Evolve Additive Solutions has all of the ingredients to bring the next evolution in Additive Manufacturing to customers around the world. At the door step of launch, Evolve's underlying technologies have over 100 granted and pending patents already.



Our headquarters in Minneapolis, MN house the most talented engineers in the world, smartest scientists and brightest business minds in the world, combined with industry veterans from additive manufacturing, 2D printing, materials development and traditional manufacturing.



We're backed by a team of strategic partners and investors as well as Fortune 100 customers and always open to hear from other potential technology partners. Give us a shout or complete the Contact Us form and tell us how you can help our customers grow with a mutual solution.
