Rapid Prototyping

Applications for Automotive - Medical - Consumer Products - Aerospace

The application of SLA and SLS rapid prototyping across a broad spectrum of industries is endless. Advanced Prototyping has experience developing prototypes in the industries featured on this page and beyond. We have a long-standing reputation for making the highest quality 3D models and prototypes for a diverse and global client base.

Automotive Rapid Prototyping

Advanced Prototyping has worked with many automotive and transportation companies to provide such parts as interior and exterior trim/fascia and engine and powertrain parts. For example, our use of Accura® 25 plastic and Nylon 12 produce durable prototypes that are ideally suited for automotive design verification and functional testing. They feature high flexibility while retaining their original shape.

3D printing or additive manufacturing enables the part production with integrated functionality, without the need for tooling, substantially cutting development and production costs.

It also is increasingly important in research and development, enabling OEMs and suppliers to vehicles on the market more quickly. Working with automotive designers and engineers has been a specialty of ours from the start. We offer a fully equipped workshop that's easily accessible located just north of Detroit.

Medical Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping is a promising powerful technology that has the potential to revolutionize certain areas in the ever changing and challenging field of medical science for:

  • Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgery
  • Maxillofacial and Dental Surgeries
  • Oncology and Reconstruction Surgeries
  • Custom Joint Replacement
  • Patient Specific Instrumentation
  • Implant design Testing and Validation

In the medical instrument area, examples of using the rapid prototyping include retractors, scalpels, surgical fasteners, medical diagnostic and display systems and other devices. Engineers collaborating with doctors and surgeons are able to see the results from 3D modeling prototypes to ensure they give the most appropriate and best quality of treatment.

Consumer Product Rapid Prototyping

Toys, pet products, sporting goods, bicycles, containers, electronic devices. The list of possible applications of 3D printing is limitless in consumer products. These 3D models that can be used for visualization, experimentation, or marketing research saving time and money. Our 3D Systems' SLA iPro™ 8000 and SLS Sinterstations build prototype parts with outstanding surface smoothness, feature resolution, edge definition and tolerances. Our machines redefine high-definition and are ideal for designing a vast array of consumer products.

Aerospace Rapid Prototyping

The aerospace and defense industries have some of the toughest performance standards and, with the need to produce complex, lightweight parts, aerospace engineers have long adopted 3Dt printing services. Space manufacturers often make very expensive parts in small amounts and tooling for such items will never be used again. Rapid prototyping is perfect for such tasks. Even fuel grains in development to be used with hybrid rockets have been manufactured with rapid prototyping. Our plastic prototypes are routinely used to improve existing product designs or to create entirely new components.

Your Ideal Prototype

An increasing amount of rapid prototypes are used throughout today's design process in all industries. Advanced Prototyping can assist you with your project bringing together our experience, equipment, and knowledge to create the ideal prototype for your needs.
