“We decided to 3D print the TransRoPorter prototype, which offered us the least expensive, fastest and most elegant solution. Everyone involved in the project is delighted with the outcome.”

Dr. Kaj Fuehrer, German Aerospace Center

Test Your Ideas

Concept Validation

Go beyond traditional words and CAD pictures with highly realistic 3D printed prototypes and gain early buy-in from customers and stakeholders before committing to costly production.

Fit Checks

Quickly check your design’s form and fit with mating parts using time-efficient, accurate 3D printed prototypes.
