Rapid Prototyping process starts with the uploading of your STL file for a rapid quote.  This Product Realization will transform your CAD drawings into plastic parts. Parts are built layer by layer in an additive process. Extrusion heads lay down thermoplastics to create each layer.

Advantages:

Short Run Production

01-Fused Deposition Modeling advantage-Short run production-multiple rapid parts in single operation

Need multiples?  FDM can build as many parts as you require, in the time that you need them. Cheaper than using injection molding!

Assemblies

01-FDM-Assemblies-assembly will mechanically operate like real thing

Does your design contain moving parts and subassemblies? A Rapid Prototype of your assembly will mechanically operate just like the real thing.

Military-Grade Prototyping

01-FDM-military grade prototyping-max tensile strength 10390 psi-flexural strength 16700 psi-high strength designs and concepts

With a max tensile strength of 10,390 psi and a max flexural strength of 16,700 psi, materials are ready for your military and high strength designs and concepts.

Precision

01-FDM-Precision rapid prototyping parts-Max resolution 0.005 inch-small parts of complex geometry can be made

Small parts with complex geometry are no problem for FDM. With a max resolution of .005”, your parts will look as good as your CAD models.
