Rapid Prototyping Services

Rapid Prototyping also called computer automated manufacturing, solid free-form manufacturing and layered manufacturing is the process of quickly fabricating a model of a part or assembly using three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) data.

Rapid Prototyping is very useful for visualization and testing. Rapid Prototyping models can be used to create male models for tooling, such as silicone rubber molds and investment casts. In some cases, the Rapid Prototyping part can be the final part, rapid prototype parts can be sanded, milled, drilled, tapped, painted and even plated with nickel, chrome or copper.

The existing prototyping technologies allow you to save time and money by decreasing your time-to-market, and avoiding costly modifications to production tooling. Multiple versions of prototypes can be produced and evaluated in days, versus weeks, allowing you time to refine your designs. In short Rapid Prototyping can save you time and money, while helping you reach your goals.

Enhancing Communication - Rapid Prototyping provides functional models, which can be easily shared, refined, and improved. 3D Prototyping also allows designers to easily communicate the design scope to audiences including management, marketing, vendors and customers. Selling ideas is easy when you can show rather than explain.

Argus Engineering LLC is a provider of Rapid Prototyping services. We will work with you to create prototype components and assemblies made from a wide variety of plastics, elastomers and metals. We utilize a number of highly qualified vendor partners, to produce prototypes that are manufactured to your specifications. If you do not have the right software to create the necessary files we provide also 3D CAD (computer aided design) services.

The Rapid Prototype industry is based on privacy. We have an industry standard non-disclosure agreement (NDA).
