Bring Products to Market Faster With In-House Rapid Prototyping
Rapid prototyping with affordable in-house desktop 3D printers empowers you to create prototypes within a day and carry out multiple iterations of design, size, shape, or assembly based on results of real-life testing and analysis, helping you to bring better products to market faster.
Turn Ideas Into High-Fidelity Prototypes
Rapid prototyping helps companies turn ideas into realistic proofs of concept, advances these concepts to high-fidelity prototypes that look and work like final products, and guides products through a series of validation stages toward mass production.
How Black Diamond Reduced Costs by 84% With Rapid Prototyping on the Form 3L

Rapid SLA Prototyping With The New Draft Resin
Read on to learn how Albatross Bikes incorporates Draft Resin into their workflows to quickly create engineering samples for bicycle components.
Cut Your Prototyping Cycle to 24 hours
Never again wait weeks for prototypes to arrive from a service provider. With in-house 3D printing, you can create rapid prototypes within a day, run tests, tweak your design, and print again.
Save Money and Time
While the upfront cost of a printer setup can feel intimidating, it can pay for itself in just a couple of weeks or months when you compare it with how much you’d spend on outsourcing or an alternative production method.
