2 Stereolithography (SLA) Stereolithography prototypes are constructed from a liquid photopolymer that is selectively cured using an ultraviolet laser. 50 Well Specimen Tray Focus group and presentation models Clear prototypes Cast urethane tooling patterns Accuracy: +/-( in/in) Layer Thickness: High-Resolution: 0.002" "; Standard Resolution: 0.005" " Smallest Feature Size: >.020, or.010 (High Res Mode) Build Platform: 25.6 x29.5 x20 (Single Piece Build) Pick Your Date Calendar Next Day Shipping Same Day Shipping

3 Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) Selective Laser Sintering prototypes are constructed when a thin layer of build material is spread across the platform where the laser traces a two-dimensional cross section of the part sintering the material together. Mounting Shrouds Field testing Low Volume Production High Heat Applications Accuracy: +/-( in/in) Layer Thickness:.004 Smallest Feature Size: >.020 Build Platform: 22 x 22 x 18 1 to 5 days Next Day Shipping

4 Multi Jet Modeling - MDM ProJet utilizes a full cure of each layer of super fine UV and support materials as eight jetting heads precisely deposit the product. Wax Support material is easily separated from the part by heating wax to melting temp. Similar to SLA Physical Testing Smooth Surface Finish with Good impact Strength HiRes applications with Complex Geometries Cast urethane tooling patterns Accuracy: +/-( in/in) Layer Thickness: 16 microns ( ) Smallest Feature Size: > x 7.3 x 8 inches 3 to 5 days

5 ZPrinter - ZP ZPrinters are excellent for Demonstration Models and Full Color Printing. Some SLS applications can also be covered using Zmax 90 infiltrant. Demonstration Models Physical Testing Fast Turnaround Brown and Green sand process for tooling Layer Thickness: Smallest Feature Size: > X 15 X 9 inches 1 to 2 days

6 PolyJet PolyJet utilizes a full cure of each layer of super fine UV photopolymer and support materials as eight jetting heads precisely deposit the product. Support material is easily separated from the part by either a water jet or hand and brush. Prototype elastomeric parts Simulate overmolded parts Focus group and presentation models Cast urethane tooling patterns Replica Dinosaur Accuracy: +/-( in/in) Layer Thickness: 16 microns ( ) Smallest Feature Size: > x 15.7 x to 5 days

7 Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Fused Deposition Modeling is a solid-based rapid prototyping method that extrudes material, layer-by-layer, to build a model. The build material, production quality thermoplastics, is melted and then extruded through a specially designed head onto a platform to create a two-dimensional cross section of the model. The cross section quickly solidifies, and the platform descends where the next layer is extruded upon the previous layer. Industrial Motor Housing Functional testing Jigs and Fixtures Layered Production Manufacturing Focus group and presentation models Accuracy: +/-( in/in) Layer Thickness: Smallest Feature Size: Build Platform - ABS: 23 x19 x23 (Single Piece Build) Build Platform - PC: 14 x16 x16 (Single Piece Build) Finishes: Smooth Gloss and Smooth Matte Finish Available 3 to 5 days

8 Cast Urethanes Cast Urethanes are produced by first building an SLA master pattern that is finished to a pattern level finish. Silicon rubber is poured from the SLA master pattern to create a mold. Urethane material is poured into the mold to create the cast urethane. Rotating Camera Mount Field testing Focus group and presentation models Low Volume Production Accuracy: +/-( in/in) (Local areas to +/-.001 ) Smallest Feature Size: >.020 Build Platform: Unlimited (Bonded Pattern) Tool Life: 50 parts/tool for most materials and geometry 6 to 9 Days to First Sample 2-4 parts produced per day following sample approval

9 Low-Volume Injection Molding Low-Volume Injection Molding produces parts by injecting production grade plastic materials into CNC machined aluminum molds. The aluminum tools are produced directly from CAD data and cut into specialized core and cavity inserts. What To Use It For: Functional testing New Production Introductions Low to Mid Volume Production Drill Cover Accuracy: +/-.005 (Adhere to SPI Tolerance Standards) No size limits Utilize hand loaded slides to create undercuts Small features created using the EDM process Press Range: Up to 1000 ton press First sample parts 5 to 20 days, depending on part geometry

10 Machined Plastic Prototypes (MPP) Machined Plastic Prototypes (MPP) are constructed using the subtractive manufacturing process. Industrial Assembly Cover Functional testing Clear prototypes Low volume production parts Accuracy: +/-.010 Manufacturing Limitations: 3 and 4 axis CNC machining only Radii Concessions: All sharp corners will have radii added Build Size: 12 x12 x3 (Single Piece Build) Materials: ABS-Natural, ABS-Black and Acrylic-Clear 8 to 11 days

11 Sheet Metal Sheet Metal prototypes are produced with CNC punching a blank from sheet stock. The geometry is then formed using custom tooling. In addition to cuts and bends, the geometry formed can include gusseting, knurling, embossing, and contouring. Chassis Bracket Low Volume to Medium Volume Production Production material required Accuracy: +/-.005 Thickness:.004 to.250 Bending accuracy: +/-.004 / bend Punching accuracy: +/ Bent Up Part Size: 36 x36 x6 5 to 10 Days

12 CNC Machining CNC Machining is the process by which material is removed from a block of material with Computer Numerical Control (CNC) equipment that cuts away unneeded material. Oil Pipeline Fitting Low Volume to Medium Volume Production Production material required Accuracy: +/-.005 Geometric limits due to manufacturing process Build Platform: 60 x36 x30 5 to 15 Days

13 Metal Casting Metal Casting is the process by which molten metal material is cast into a tool to form the final shape. The method of making the tooling varies, and for prototype and low-volume include plaster mold and investment. Low Volume to Medium Volume Production Production material required Motor Housing General Casting Tolerance to to to to Each additional inch requires Design must include draft angles 10 to 20 Days
