Professional, Production & Industrial 3D Printing Solutions

Rapid 3D are distributors of real world proven professional, production and industrial 3D printing technologies.

  1. Will 3D printing challenge your current business model?
  2. Will 3D printing give your business that edge over your competition?
  3. Will 3D printing optimise your workflows, thereby adding the savings directly to your bottom line?

Find out the answers to these questions by talking to us.

Rapid 3D also have a 3D printing bureau service where you can start to prove 3D printing, testing the technology to see if will work for your business, before making a commitment to 3D printing technology.

The 3D printing bureau service presently offers the following technologies:

  • Stereolithography (SLA): The SLA process utilizes a vat of liquid photopolymer resin cured by ultraviolet laser to create solid 3D models.
  • Selective Laser Sintering (SLS): SLS employs a high power laser to fuse plastic powders into finished prototypes and functional end-use components.
  • Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF): Another additive manufacturing technology, FFF (similar to Fused deposition modeling (FDM)) uses a plastic filament, unwound from a coil to supply material to produce a part.
  • ColorJet Printing (CJP): Using an inkjet-like printing head to selectively deposit a colored liquid binding over a bed of powder material we are able to create full color finished parts. (Read More)
  • MultiJet Printing (MJP): An additive manufacturing process that prints thin layers of UV curable liquid plastics and wax support materials to create high resolution fully cured plastic parts.
  • Direct Metal Printing (DMP): Direct Metal Printing uses additive manufacturing technology. A high-precision laser is used on metal powder particles, producing horizontal metal layers.

With all these technologies at our fingertips and a continuous stream of projects – covering the straightforward, all the way through to the most imaginative, boundary-pushing designs – we’ve lived the 3D printing dream, warts and all.

For our clients, we can truly say, “We actually do this stuff”. And because we do this stuff day-in and day-out, we can call it just like it is, complete with our trained-this-way engineering practicality.

Rapid 3D is not your usual box-moving equipment distribution company. We walk our talk, take our own medicine.
