Our Rapid Prototype 3D Printing Services


We provide a range of high-quality 3D printing (additive manufacturing) services, including FDM, SLA, SLS, and SLM. This allows for the 3D printing of plastics and metals and provides options for both prototyping and production.

3D printing is a great way to create one-off parts or small batches and can be used to create complex geometries that could not be realized using traditional manufacturing processes.

Our Precision CNC Machining Capabilities

FDM

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) involves the melting of thermoplastic filament material and extruding it onto a platform to accurately construct complex 3D models at a low 3d printing service cost.
SLA-3D printing rapid prototyping service

SLA

The stereolithography (SLA) process can achieve 3D models with complex geometric aesthetics due to its capabilities in applying multiple finishes with stunning precision.
SLS-3D printing rapid prototyping service

SLS

Selective laser sintering (SLS) utilizes a laser to sinter powdered material, allowing for fast and accurate construction of custom 3d printed parts.

Short delivery time

The lead time depends on factors such as the overall size, the geometric complexity of the part, and the 3D printing technology you choose. However, our fastest delivery time is 3 days.

Advantages of 3D Printing

3D Printing is an essential manufacturing process that enables companies to produce the most delicate parts with the tightest tolerances imaginable. Here are just some of its main advantages over alternative approaches:
 Affordability: Since 3D printing uses only the required material and needs no tooling, it is one of the most affordable manufacturing processes for one-off parts or small batches.
Geometries: throngs 3D printers create parts layer by layer using a computer-controlled nozzle, they can be used to create highly complex shapes, including complex interior geometries.
Efficiency: Once a part has been designed using CAD software, it can be printed in a matter of hours, without a lengthy setup procedure.
Adaptability: Because 3D printed parts require no tooling, there is less risk involved when creating a part. If a fault is discovered after printing, it can be amended digitally without the need to replace expensive tooling.
Environmental factors: Although 3D printers require power to operate, there is generally no material wastage involved. Subtractive processes like machining, on the other hand, produce waste material.

Precision Machining FAQ

3D printing can achieve very high levels of accuracy. Our standard tolerance for 3D printing is ± 0.1mm. But this depends on your part complexity, you can upload your 2D design files and we will evaluate specific tolerances.
Some important factors, such as your part size, height, complexity and the printing technology used, will affect the printing time. At RapidDirect, we can complete 3D printing projects as fast as 1 day.

The 3D prints we create will depend on the specification of the 3D printer you choose. We have a wide range of 3D printing machines, allowing us to print different sizes. Large format FDM 3D printers have a build area of up to 36 x 24 x 26 (inches).
On the other hand, you can expect larger SLA printers to print up to 29 x 25 x 21 (inches). SLS unfilled has a 13 inches max dimension, while the glass-filled SLS machine can create prints of 26 x 15 x 23 (inches). The Industrial Polyjet printer has a build area of up to 19 x 15 x 7 (inches).

The recommended file formats are STEP (.stp) and STL (.stl) . So if your file is in another format, it is best to convert it to STEP or STL.
Capital is a huge decider when deciding on the right 3D printing service. Therefore, it is important to know about several factors that can determine the amount of capital you spend printing or outsourcing your project, including chosen 3D printer, the size and design complexity of a model, the material used, and your part volume.

3D printing, otherwise known as additive manufacturing, is a manufacturing process that builds a part layer by layer. A computer sends instructions to the 3D printer, which deposits or hardens material in a preprogrammed pattern, creating layers in succession.

There are several kinds of 3D printers, some of which are used to print plastic parts, and others to print parts made from metal or other materials. While these various 3D printing technologies are diverse, they have certain features in common.

3D printing has revolutionized manufacturing by giving businesses access to one-step manufacturing technology. 3D printers can be set up in offices and small workspaces, and require minimal training to operate. Moreover, startup costs are incredibly low, since materials are affordable and can be purchased in small quantities.

If you need assistance in finding which 3D printing process is the right fit for you, you can set up a consultation and planning phase with our team of additive manufacturing experts.

All 3D CAD files you wish to have printed must be provided for the design and reviewed by the production team so they can be optimized and made to meet design requirements. These requirements will differ between FDM, SLA, SLS, and SLM 3D printing, so be sure to optimize your CAD model for the 3D printing process you wish to use.
