PROTOTYPING

You need prototypes yesterday? OK.

Our proprietary fabrication system can quickly produce one-outs or multiples. We manufacture our own billets in a size that gives us precise control over fusion and density. This means our high-performance prototypes match molded parts for testing.

We have the most up-to-date software capabilities and modeling systems for exceptional quality and fast turnaround. Then we add what no system can: human creativity from one of the industry’s most experienced design teams. With our expertise in multiple materials, we select the optimal material for your needs.
