Product Prototyping

Rapid Prototyping, Object 3D Printing, CNC Machining, RTV Silicone Molding, Urethane Casting, CAD Design, Product Development. 3D CNC machining, sculpture and custom fabrication turn your designs into workable, physical models. From sketches, blueprints, or a 3D CAD database, your model is built with precision and speed. These models can then be used for engineering/concept review and proof of principle, or pattern finished and decorated to be used for marketing, display, photo models, or as a master pattern for reproduction. We offer accurate 2D to 3D form translation, exacting tolerances, functional mechanisms, and dynamic sculptural interpretations.
When NASA, in conjunction with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, was developing the CASSINI spacecraft, a nationwide search was performed to find a vendor capable of manufacturing the template and platform for Cassini’s large antenna. Five significant vendors endeavored to complete the task, but each one failed to create the template/platform to the specified scale, cost and precision necessary to develop the project.
We undertook this project and not only delivered the antenna template/platform which exceeded NASA’s precise specifications, but also delivered the unit ahead of schedule and well under budget. No other vendor, despite their greater financial and technical resources, were able to match the product which we were able to design and produce.
