Not sure which technology to use?
If you are unsure which rapid prototyping process is best suited for your project, please contact us. Our team of professionals are very well versed in the strengths and weaknesses of each rapid prototyping process, and will help you make the best choice based on your unique project needs and timeline requirements.
The SLA process utilizes a vat of liquid photopolymer resin cured by ultraviolet laser to solidify the pattern layer by layer to create or “print” a solid 3D model.
The SLS process employs a high power laser to fuse plastic powders layer by layer into finished prototypes and functional end-use components.
CJP utilizes an inkjet-like printing head selectively depositing a colored liquid binding over a bed of powder material in cross sections to create full color finished parts.
PJP is a solid-based rapid prototyping method, depositing material layer by layer through a heated extrusion head to build a finished model.
MultiJet Printing is an additive manufacturing process that prints thin layers of UV curable liquid plastics and wax support materials to create high resolution fully cured plastic parts.
Direct Metal Printing uses additive manufacturing technology. In the machine, a high-precision laser is directed to metal powder particles in order to selectively build up thin subsequent horizontal metal layers.
