Rapid Prototyping Services

Rapid Prototyping is used to describe a collection of techniques to create a scale model of a physical part from a Computer Aided Design (CAD) program. Rapid Prototyping is used to produce complicated 3D shapes which are used to aid evaluation of a design. Rapid Prototyping tends to be employed as a one-off to create a scale model rather than used in large-scale production.

Rapid Prototyping services can be found in many forms within GTMA’s Supplier Directory. The Supplier Directory provides companies offering 3D services related to rapid prototyping such as CAD Modelling, Imagining, Printers and Materials, and Printing which can be of great use to a business wishing to develop a scale model of their design.

To find more about the companies’ services that are available from GTMA’s Supplier Directory, please see below:
