What is Rapid Prototyping?

Rapid Prototyping is often used to produce a physical sample of a design concept. It can be used to evaluate form, fit and function and to test out new and innovative ideas.

Prototypes are often made of less robust, and therefore less expensive, materials. And "rapidis" critical to many of our clients because they need to produce a physical part quickly in order to validate a design or to capture a fleeting sales opportunity.

Benefits of Prototypes

· Show your customers and investors a model of your product
· Demonstrate the appearance, dimensions and features of your product
· Test your design for its suitability
· Save time and money by identifying and reducing design flaws
· Improve and streamline the production process
· Reduce your work load when the time comes to manufacture
· Create multiple versions with different colors, surface textures, etc.


Prototyping Services

Our prototyping services include Rapid Prototyping, CNC machining, vacuum casting, SLA and SLS. And more prototyping case here.

CNC Machining

Using our CNC machining centers, our skilled machinists can make CNC machined prototypes using a wide range of plastics, metals, and modeling boards. Many customers turn to CNC machining to have their prototypes produced out of more durable materials for functional testing.  >>view more

Polyurethane Vacuum Castings

Polyurethane vacuum casting involves a multi-step process.

· First a master mold is made of a durable material. Master molds can be customer-supplied or made using traditional prototyping methods including CNC machining, 3D metal printing, stereolithography (SLA) or selective laser sintering (SLS).
· The master mold is placed inside of a casting box, which is then filled with liquid silicone rubber. Once the silicone is cured, it is split open and the master removed. There is now an empty cavity conforming to a reverse image of the master. This cavity is then filled with the casting polyurethane (PU) of your choice. A vacuum is applied to the silicone mold, which effectively pulls the PU into any voids inside the mold.
· Silicone molds are usually durable enough to make up to 20 or more copies of the original with excellent fidelity.    >>view more

SLA & SLS Rapid Prototypes

SLA & SLS rapid prototypes are ideal for rapid, one-off prototypes. SLA prototyping is a process whereby UV light cures a liquid photopolymer into a solid plastic prototype, layer by layer. SLS (selective laser sintering) uses a high-powered laser to fuse powderized nylon, one layer at a time to form a three-dimensional solid.   >>view more

  1. Quality

    Prototypes demand many hours of handwork. We employ and train only the best model makers to deliver parts with beauty and attention to detail second to none.

  2. Fast Delivery

    Urgency in prototyping is our daily business. We deliver your parts fast and in the expected quality to the United States, Europe, Australia, and all other parts of the planet.

  3. Production Finishes

    We aim to give you production quality finishes using sandblasting, polishing, painting, printing, powder coating and more. If you design to industry standards, we can do it.
