Our Difference

With our full suite of services, we are able to combine 3D printing prototyping with conventional CNC machining and low-volume injection molding to meet the needs of virtually every design team.

ODM On Demand Manufacturing Advanced Prototyping
  • Test Various Materials in Real-World Environments

    Choose from the broadest range of materials and see how they perform under the thermal, chemical, and mechanical stresses of everyday product use.

  • Explore Manufacturing Processes

    You can determine part weight, assembly process, and overall manufacturability.

  • Eliminate Time-Consuming and Costly Tooling

    From your specifications, our local experts will produce a real-world part the same day or within days, instead of months.

  • Partner with the World's Most Experienced Engineers

    Together, we can generate a part that meets exacting specifications.

  • Access Multiple Technologies and Processes

    We offer both additive and subtractive manufacturing processes.

  • Functional Prototypes

    3D printed functional prototypes enable real-world product development and testing to take place before costly investments in production tooling. These realistic prototypes can take on the appearance of your final finished product, including color and material selection. Manufacturing processes can be explored using functional prototypes to determine part weight, assembly process, and overall manufacturability.

  • Concept Modeling

    Functional prototyping and concept modeling give design and engineering teams the ability to view and test products in real-world environments. A finished 3D printed concept model helps communicate ideas that transform digital CAD files on a screen into final products for user testing, design verification, or product design iterations. 3D printed concept models help bridge the gap between rapid prototyping of simple designs and final production design. Concept models allow ideas to be communicated to broader teams for approval, design revisions, or marketing purposes.
