Rapid Prototyping

With PPCP’s rapid prototyping, we can create individual, one-off patterns with PLA material to satisfy small-run needs. Whether you’re considering changes to an existing product, desire a tangible prototype of a new product or want to run a one-time job without the tooling investment, rapid prototyping provides a cost-effective option.

A 3D printed part can be used in the investment casting process, eliminating the need for permanent tooling and associated costs. The pattern can be assembled and placed in the shell room, which saves time by bypassing steps in the injection process. With rapid prototyping, parts can be shipped in as little as two weeks.

To get started, send us a CAD file in one of the following formats:

  • .stl
  • .sldprt
  • .xt
  • .step
