Rapid Prototyping Center

The Rapid Prototyping Center consists of equipment and expertise in the use of Rapid Prototyping (RP) tools to produce three-dimensional hardware directly from computer-aided design (CAD) databases. A variety of laser-based equipment creates highly complex and detailed plastic, ABS, polycarbonate, nylon, epoxy, or high-strength metal parts directly from CATIA, Pro-E, or other advanced CAD databases with very little touch labor.

Stereolithography apparatus utilize laser-hardened conversion of liquid polymer to solid objects.

Fused Deposition Modeling
Equipment using deposition of melted material to form solid objects.

Direct Metal Manufacturing
Equipment creating stainless steel parts using laser sintering.
