Fathom built its production centers on an enterprise-level 3D printing and additive manufacturing expertise first, then integrated traditional manufacturing equipment and processes second. Not to be confused with a service bureau or machine shop, Fathom has built an advanced manufacturing facility that specialize in all aspects of production realization from mechanical concept development to prototyping to the fabrication of low to high-volume production parts. This unmatched expertise allows Fathom customers to drive greater innovation at an industry-leading pace without compromising design intent.
Fathom is headquartered in Hartland, WI with services offered nationwide. Additional offices and production centers are located in Seattle, WA, Oakland, CA and Holland, OH.
Fathom serves companies of all sizes across many industry types such as medical, consumer products, electronics, automotive, aerospace and sporting goods. Fathom experts work with a wide range of professionals at companies involved in the product development of hard goods—designers, engineers and creative professionals alike who need to test products faster, verify designs earlier and elevate their entire product development and production processes.
As it often occurs, Fathom takes a multi-disciplinary approach because advanced technologies and traditional methods are complementary. While Fathom commonly uses additive technologies to solve highly complex problems, the result is significant when those differing strengths and weaknesses of advanced and traditional methods are used to augment each other. By working with Fathom, you can expect the highest quality of service, resourcefulness and ability to support you throughout product development and into production.
Fathom offers specialized managed equipment solutions that augment a company’s in-house digital fabrication operations. This comprehensive and customizable staffing approach accelerates implementation, streamlines workflow and decreases downtime. By leveraging on-site managed services with Fathom, organizations fully realize the benefits of equipment ownership without having to dedicate internal resources to hands-on operations. Additional support options are available—each managed service plan is customized to fit the unique production needs of a company for the best results.
Rapid manufacturing is the use of software automation which directs equipment to rapid manufacture a product. It is the low-volume and on-demand production of parts. In addition to injection molding, 3D printing, CNC machining, and other manufacturing processes may be used.
Rapid manufacturing has many benefits including:
By leveraging on-site managed services by Fathom, organizations fully realize the benefits of equipment ownership without having to dedicate internal resources to hands-on operations. Equipment operation includes but not limited to FDM, PolyJet, SLS, SLA, MJF, Nano Dimension, metal-based additive, CNC machining, and laser cutting.
Designers and engineers have the opportunity to push the limits of how they design and manufacture products in very big ways.

A company’s need for total design freedom and faster speeds in their product development and manufacturing processes is the base of everything Fathom focuses on. Consumer products are getting smarter every day and users are more empowered by these innovations. Times are changing and product development demands are increasing quickly, but access to new technologies has never been easier and more cost-effective. Barriers in product development will continue to be broken down because advanced technologies and techniques continually change the ways products are designed and manufactured.
Inspired by Stefan Thomke, Fathom encourages a “front-loaded process” during product development (i.e. engaging in many iteration cycles sooner versus later). Teams can increase knowledge and decrease assumptions earlier in the concept development process when it is less costly to make changes.
Building on Fathom’s encouragement to take a “front-loaded” approach, it is important to note that teams should question, build, test and learn throughout all phases of product development before going into production. Especially now more than ever because direct digital manufacturing is becoming increasingly more common because additive technologies allow for on-demand production (e.g. build the latest, most improved version of your design as needed).
By focusing on how a product should function rather than how it’s made, companies can drive greater innovation and push the limits of manufacturing. Whether manufactured traditionally, additively or a hybrid of both, Fathom promotes an “outside-in” approach.
By leveraging the outside in approach, we can focus on limiting blind spots (traditional manufacturing constraints) and maximizing product possibility. Fathom is driven to augment conventional manufacturing using advanced technologies and unique processes.
