3D printer

3D printers and rapid prototypingWhat is the difference between an RP machine and a 3D printer?The flippant answer is, “about $50,000.”3D printers are really just lower-cost, somewhat less-capable, rapid prototyping machines. These days they sell at prices in the $10,000 to $25,000 range rather than the $60,000 (and up – way up) associated with their…… Continue reading 3D printer

Z-Corp printers

Rapid Prototypes / CADLeading product designers and entire teams of engineers use Z Corporation 3D printers on a daily basis to produce a high volume of realistic prototypes quickly, easily, and inexpensively for a wide range of specialized applications, including: * Concept Models * Finite Element Analysis * Presentation Models * Functional Testing * Packaging…… Continue reading Z-Corp printers

Rapid prototyping

Rapid prototyping – Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaRapid prototyping is the automatic construction of physical objects using additive manufacturing technology. The first techniques for rapid prototyping became available in the late 1980s and were used to produce models and prototype parts. Today, they are used for a much wider range of applications and are even used…… Continue reading Rapid prototyping

Stereolithography Machines

Rapid Prototyping Machines, Stereolithography Machines – ProtoCAMProtoCAM uses two SLA-7000 stereolithography machines to help customers to reduce costs and lead-times. The SLA-7000 builds up to 3 times faster than the previous model (it replaced the SLA-5000.) This increase in speed significantly reduces the time and cost for large scale SLA models and helps you to…… Continue reading Stereolithography Machines
