Rapid Prototyping

Rapid Prototyping

Rapid Prototyping allows our customers to not only see but also interact with functionally accurate parts during the conceptualization and design process. Parts can be produced from your CAD model or design generated by our engineers.

Let us create a working 3D metal or plastic model of your product using the latest rapid prototyping techniques available. These models quite often help to reveal potential design issues that avoid costly modifications to production tooling. In some instances, our customers have allowed prototype parts to fill unexpected production needs.

We offer various processes and materials to produce a functional 3D model. Our engineers will aid in determining the rapid prototyping process best suited for your product. Services include SLA, SLS and FDM.

SLA – Stereolithography
  • Capable of light duty service and function.
  • Can be painted to reflect finished part color.
  • Offered in a variety of resins reflecting the rigidity of the desired part.
  • Parts with fine detail and smooth surface finish.
SLS – Selective Laser Sintering
  • Capable of part features such as flexible snaps and living hinges.
  • Can be painted to reflect finished part color.
  • Offered in a variety of resins reflecting desired part feel and function.
  • Highly accurate part tolerancing to within thousands of an inch.
FDM – Fused Deposition Modeling
  • Visual and Design verification of conceptual part.
  • Functional, durable and accurate parts for performance testing.
  • Confirmation of engineering and design assumptions.
  • Accurate part tolerancing to within thousands of an inch.
