Surprisingly, removing the build is actually the exciting part of the SLS 3d printing process! Not watching it as it builds. Most think watching an SLS while building would be the interesting part of of the process, however because of the way the process builds, there's actually very little to see. Here's a super basic summary [...]
You may have noticed the Zelda pump (3d printed by us with SLS and nylon) on our home page, but I thought I'd bring light to it again as recently our customer let us know that with their last round of testing the pump ran for 2-1/2 days, pumping 2.3 million gallons of water! That's [...]
PLEASE NOTE: the article below we wrote to illustrate 3D printing possibilities and because it's just fun. We do not and cannot make or sell this item nor do we know of anyone who does or could help you. In order to make this item for real (like the prop people likely did on the [...]
Even though we've been in the 3d printing business for 20 years, I NEVER get tired of hearing how much better our SLS nylon prototypes are than our competition! Last week we received a message from a recent customer that was using a well-known large 3d printing company before finding our services and here's what [...]
Star Trek fans rejoice, as after much anticipation the Bluetooth Star Trek Communicator has arrived! Here's the story... Just before Christmas I pre-ordered the new Star Trek Bluetooth communicator as a gift and needed to wrap something in place (as a photo is kinda lame). Being in the 3d printing business, I approached one of [...]
3D Prototype Design, 3d printing services since 1996 Even though much of the world is just now learning about 3d printing, this year marks 3D Prototype Design Inc.'s 20th anniversary offering 3d printing services and beyond! We’d like to sincerely thank you and all of our great customers who count on us for all [...]
As a leading 3d printing services provider in Canada for almost 20 years, we can tell you with certainty that the majority of inventors start with patents and prototypes well before they should. This can be a costly mistake and easily avoided by taking the right steps at the right time.
We created this functioning 3d printed prototype for the Zelda Pump that was used for live testing. Created as a full scale prototype, it was tested pumping gallons of water in seconds without the use of hydro! Watch the video to see it in action.
Had the good fortune this weekend at TIFF to Meet Dragons' Den David Chilton and Michael Wekerle. CBC was recording an interview that was open to an intimate group of approx. 70 people at this years TIFF festival. We sat front and center to take in all their great words of advice and perspectives on [...]
The main reason that we are able to offer high quality rapid prototypes at such great prices lies in the process we use to create our models. The machines and processes used to create your order are able to directly print your prototypes from the CAD file you provide in durable, flexible nylon material or [...]
