“Yes, but I need parts NOW!!!” A last-minute cable design change required a different grommet to protect a cable as it passed out of an enclosure. Nothing was available off-the-shelf that had the shape characteristics we needed. In this case, we needed the durability, heat resistance, and strength and there were no rapid prototyped material […]
Rapid Prototyped tools for Contract Manufacuting
Our rapid prototyping capability helps us make tools quickly for our contract manufacturing needs. Have you ever been tinkering around and wondered to yourself, “If only I had a tool that could do…” All of the mechanical engineers I know have extensive tool boxes. While it is great to have every driver, wrench and […]
So what do I need to do to have it made?
Rapid prototypes require a 3D CAD file in STL format. If you have one, you can upload the file here. We will send you a quote by e-mail shortly. The rapid prototype can be produced and delivered to you within a few days. But what if my design is not completed? That is where our […]
Going Small Our high-resolution Objet printer is able to prototype small parts that are impossible to produce with many other techniques. This image features a gear we made for one of our clients (yes, we asked their permission before publishing this article). The actual diameter is 9.5 mm (3/8″) and it fits neatly on the […]
