Is 3d printing right for my industry?

Product developers know the drill. Prototypes and mock ups bring designs to life. Historically, they are often developed in a machine shop, stamped “not for production” and put through the ringer for testing.

In today’s world, however, industrial level 3D printing, known as additive manufacturing, and advanced CNC machining allow manufacturers to develop prototypes significantly faster and iterate on demand.

This is rapid prototyping.

Rapid prototyping using CNC machining and additive manufacturing techniques is ideal for contract manufacturers across the industries of aerospace, defense, automotive and consumer goods for a diversity of applications.
