Rapid Prototyping and 3D Printing

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
Our rapid prototyping service has a quick turnaround time building prototypes in hours, not days or weeks that won't warp, shrink or absorb moisture. They're tough enough to be used as working models and withstand rigorous testing.

The FDM machine builds the prototype part by extruding a semi-molten filament through a heated nozzle from the bottom up with precisely deposited layers of modeling and support material. The FDM machine use ABSplus modeling material, a production-grade thermoplastic that is durable enough to perform virtually the same as production parts. There's no waiting for models to "cure" – they're ready for support removal right from the printer. Models can be drilled, tapped, sanded and painted, making the 1200es ideal for producing functional prototypes, molds, patterns, even customized tools and fixtures.

Machine- Dimension SST1200es
Build Size- 10x10x12 in.
Layer Thickness- 0.010 in. & 0.013 in.

ABSplus is available in natural, black, dark gray, red, blue, nectarine, fluorescent yellow, olive green and white.
Stereo Lithography Apparatus (SLA)
Using SLA, we can rapidly manufacture parts of different geometries at the same time and are designed to produce highly accurate prototypes, patterns or end-use parts of versatile sizes and applications.

The SLA machine uses photo reactive liquid polymer that is cured with a laser to create the prototype from a computer model. The SLA system builds parts with a smooth surface finish, excellent optical clarity, high accuracy, and thin, straight vertical walls. It's ideal for a myriad of solid imaging applications, from rapid modeling and prototyping, to injection molding and investment casting.

Machine- 3D Systems VIPER si2
Build Size- 10x10x10 in.
Layer Thickness- 0.002 in. & 0.004 in.
