3D Printing Services

GPI Prototype offers 3d printing, the cutting edge in rapid-prototyping that elevates 3d models to a whole new level. 3d printing technology produces outstanding surface features and detail.

GPI Prototype offers 3d printing, the cutting edge in rapid-prototyping technology that elevates 3D models to a whole new level. This technology produces outstanding surface features and detail with the finest resolution of horizontal layers in the market.  We can build thin walls and eliminate the stair step effect typical of SLA models. We also offer a large family of materials for you to choose from, making GPI Prototype a one-stop shop for all your prototyping needs including metal 3d printing.

The process delivers top-quality, accurate, clean, smooth and detailed prototypes at high speed.  The jetting head deposits a single-layer of two different materials used for building: one photopolymer material is used for the actual model, while a second, gel-like photopolymer material is used for support on the build tray.  Immediately after building each layer, UV light cures each layer instantly.  When the model or build is completed, parts are removed and water is used to clean away support material, meaning no harsh chemicals ever touch part surfaces.  Since there are no physical supports touching the model, the need for standard finishing services is eliminated, also allowing functional assemblies to be built as a single model.

3D PRINTING ADVANTAGES:

  • Unmatched layer/build resolution
  • Rapid turnaround and complex builds ie. undercuts, deep drafts and corners
  • Clean, smooth interior and exterior surfaces with no post-building finish required
  • Good elongation at break enables snap fit and functional applications
  • Highly durable parts ready for form, fit and function
  • No post curing required, models are fully cured and can be handled right off the tray
  • Models surfaces can be painted, machines, drilled, chrome plated or used as a mold master
