3D Printing for Engineers & Product Designers
Elevate initial ideas with low-risk concept explorations that look like real products. From CAD to physical object in no time, rapidly develop, evaluate, and iterate a range of designs in-house.

Looks-Like: Test design iterations and communicate ideas to stakeholders affordably and quickly.
Works-Like: Reliably develop proofs of concept and test functional prototypes with materials closely matching common injection-molded plastics.
Feels-Like: Simulate a range of materials from rubber to rigid, and create prototypes with the smooth finish and feel of end products.

Use advanced materials to design for manufacturability. Create small-batch runs or one-off custom solutions for comprehensive field and in-house testing before investing in expensive tooling for production.

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.
Design your object in CAD during work hours.
3D print the prototype parts overnight.
Clean, measure, test, create assemblies, and collect feedback on your design in the morning.
Tweak your design and repeat the process.
Save Money and Time
A 3D printer setup 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.
