- Appearance Models
Our additive manufacturing experts have been in business for over 20 years. During this time prototyping and short-run production have seen an enormous amount of changes and advancements, in particular the rise of 3D printing. The team has focused on keeping up with all the latest technology and are at the forefront of the industry.
Equipment, hardware and software are key to staying on top. The Ohio-based facilities are state of the art. However, human know-how and skill are needed to use the technology to turn complex concepts and designs into working prototypes and finished parts. A dedicated team is there to help you bring your products to life.
We have the capabilities and facilities to meet all your 3D printing, prototyping, and low to medium volume plastic part production needs.

Additive Manufacturing and 3D technologies offer many benefits
Product manufacturers, designers and engineers benefit in unique ways!
Product development, prototyping, verification and lead time to market are much quicker with additive manufacturing. CAD models, even complex designs, can be uploaded and produced often within days compared to what used to take weeks or months. Once a prototype is verified, low to medium volume production can also be done quickly.
Traditional molding processes involve multiple stages, tool design and mold making is one of the most costly and time consuming steps. Tooling is eliminated with plastic parts or prototypes that are 3D printed.
3D printing eliminates risk for the design team. With traditional prototyping, even the smallest changes to the design can be costly. Changes are quickly and easily implemented with additive manufacturing technology.
Expanded Design Possibilities
There are limitations as to what is possible with traditional tooling and plastic molding such as draft angles and undercuts. With additive manufacturing, parts and components are built one layer at a time making very complex geometries achievable.
As in many fields, digital technology is reducing costs for businesses. Along with all the items mentioned above, additive manufacturing saves on the time, material and labor costs associated with conventional plastic molding.
