Imagine taking just a few hours to design and print a new concept model and then placing it in the hands of a focus group in the same afternoon? Our printers enable design teams and businesses to eliminate days and weeks from their product design process, which translates to savings in resources and the ability to accelerate profits by getting product to market faster.But it’s not all about speed and savings; our printers help enhance quality by facilitating multiple concept reviews, delivering amazing full color models and creating more opportunities for feedback and improvements along the way.
What better way to compress the time and cost of bringing your new product to market than with quality prototypes that match your design and accurately represent your end-product’s functionality and performance?
Our wide variety of robust, thermally stable material options generate models that are tough enough to be used as working parts, permitting you to test for form, fit and function right from your desktop or office. With an extremely smooth surface finish, our printers have the highest level of precision and accuracy of any other 3D printers on the market ensuring that you can create with confidence.
Casting, Patterns and Molds3d prints
Our Professional network of 3D printing companies can be used for printing RealWax patterns for lost-wax casting processes or for foundry casting patterns or molds, depending on your production needs. Applications from jewelry, to medical instruments and devices, to mechanical parts or forming operations can be achieved with our 3D printers, giving you and your business ready access to disposable or short term tools for low-volume production.
Injection molding is still the preferred process for manufacturing plastic parts in larger volumes, which is why it is used to create things such as housings, containers, bottle caps, combs and other mass market applications. One of the reasons injection molding is ideal for producing high volumes of plastic parts is because several parts can be produced in each cycle by using multi-cavity injection molds. Other advantages include high tolerance precision, repeatability and a large material selection.
