Rapid Prototyping

Rapid prototyping gives student teams as well as businesses working with our Center for Rapid Product Realization the ability to realize prototype designs for much less time and money than custom machining requires. This means the time and cost from concept to manufacturing can be greatly reduced. We have a range of rapid prototyping equipment to meet part requirements. These facilities are complemented by state-of-the-art HAAS CNC and Oxford laser machining as well as our parametric modeling and engineering design capabilities.
