- Ever-growing range of materials
- Intricate, complex geometries
- Little to no material waste produced
What Types of 3D Printing Do We Offer?
RevPart provides 3D printing for rapid prototyping through two processes: stereolithography (SLA) and selective laser sintering (SLS). These dual 3D rapid prototyping options allow for a wider variety in your material selection, and broader versatility for the functionality and use of your part.
Advantages and Benefits of Using 3D Printing
No other method compares to 3D printing when it comes to getting prototypes quickly and at a low cost to you. If you need a preliminary part to test for form, fit or simply aesthetics, 3D rapid prototyping is the right choice. The complex geometries enabled by the 3D printing process let you create intricate parts to accurately gauge manufacturability and other considerations before making the decision to move to more functional testing. Advantages include:
- Low Cost
- No tooling costs
- Minimal setup involved
- Pay only for the material used — no waste
- Rapid Development
- Parts in as little as 4 Days
- Rapid prototyping as simple as uploading a CAD drawing
- Fast turnaround facilitates iterative testing
- Material Selection
- A constantly growing range of material choices
- Materials with the qualities of ABS, PC, Nylon, and more
- Dual process options (SLA and SLS) for wider material selection
- Complex Shapes
- The 3D printing process lends itself to nearly limitless geometries and forms
- Additive manufacturing means that your part is created exactly according to your specs
- Accurately gauge manufacturability, form, fit and more
- Less Waste
- No raw material machining means no waste or excess
- Only pay for as much material as your part requires
- Help stay “green” by reducing extraneous waste
Types of Industries that 3D Printing Is Best Used
The accuracy and versatility of 3D printing makes it an ideal choice for a number of applications and industries. Anywhere that complex forms and exacting specifications are required is a perfect fit for 3D printing. For example:
- Medical industry
- Complex and/or small medical components
- External prosthetics made to exact compatibility
- Extremely close tolerances
- Intricate geometries
- Increasingly stronger materials for non-mechanical functions
- Precise components for increasingly smaller products
- Versatile material selection to meet the needs of more complex products
- New types of parts as the industry evolves
- A faster way for custom replacement parts on demand
- Low costs for rapid prototyping of potential component enhancements
- Fast turnarounds to spur innovation
- Complex components for the most advanced technology
- High customization ability with no loss of efficiency
The 3D Rapid Prototyping Process
At RevPart, our goal is to make the 3D rapid prototyping process as simplified as possible for you — before, during and after production. The steps below specify exactly how we do that, and what we need from you.
1. Upload Drawings.
For 3D rapid prototyping, you’ll need CAD files in the .STL format. Starting from a napkin drawing or other loose sketch? Contact us and we can recommend an engineer to convert your drawings to digital.
2. Getting the quote.
Submitting your quote is as easy as a few clicks through our electronic portal. Along with your CAD drawing, include any supplemental facts like intended industry or use, material choice, process preference, and more. Not sure about the details? Don’t worry — we are experts in material selection and choosing the best process for you, and can provide assistance upon request.
3. Order the part.
One word to describe our quote process: fast. You’ll have an estimate within 48 hours, and you can order the part right from the same portal you requested your quote — no separate steps or offline phone tag. From here, we can even help further fine-tune your selections for the most efficient process possible.
4. We make it and ship it.
Once your part is ordered, it goes directly into our 3D printing queue. We get involved with any manual part supports and other routine maintenance during the production process, but other than that, your part moves quickly and automatically to production — at which point we inspect it and send it to you.
Finishes and Fabricated Parts
Our flexibility is a big part of the RevPart difference. Whether you need custom finishes, material qualities or secondary services, we’ve got you covered.
Materials: 3D printing has moved far beyond the limited material selection many have associated it with. New, advanced materials are available to mimic the properties, look and feel of a variety of resins, including ABS, nylon, PC and more.
Finishes: We can ship parts to you, as is, once production is done; or we can provide a custom finish, including smoothing out support marks. Let us know how you envision your finished product and we will work with you to make it a reality.
Value-Added Options: Our value-added options create a true one-stop experience, increasing efficiency and speed. Options include spray painting, pad printing, silk screening and laser etching.
3D printing offers so many opportunities — flexibility, speed, incredible cost savings, and more. Why ruin it with an inefficient quoting and production process? When working with RevPart, you gain the advantage of our dedication to improving the entire process, from start to finish. We’ve identified the biggest problems in getting your parts and prototypes made, and we’ve solved them — passing the benefits to you.
