Rapid Prototyping & Stereolithography Services
Converting 3D CAD drawings into plastic rapid prototype models.
Specializing in Rapid Prototyping, the process of converting 3D CAD drawings to physical parts to create conceptual models. This patented prototyping process builds strong high-detail prototypes, from ABS plastic, or composite materials which can be used to demonstrate and test product designs.

Rapid Prototype Materials & Processes
Fused Deposition Modeling
FDM creates strong plastic prototype models with several colors available.
Polyjet produces very precise, clear parts but is weaker than FMD.
SLA builds precise models but is more expensive than FDM .
- Finishing & Plating
Rapid Prototype Finishing Painting & Plating Options
FDM: Parts are cleaned and support is removed.
Polyjet: Parts are cleaned and support is removed.
SLA: Stereolithography parts are stripped, cured, sanded to remove exterior steps and bead blasted for a matte finish.
