Investment in 3D Printing technology has always been a priority for Prototype Projects. At the end of 2018, we boosted our SLS capacity; before that, we invested in SLS dyeing and SLS & SLA texturing technologies.
Our latest investment sees the installation of Figure 4, a speedy 3D-printing technology that is ideal for functional prototyping and very low volume production.
Figure 4 delivers an ultra-high print speed meaning parts can be printed rapidly, enabling our customers to take advantage of our next working day dispatch option available on all of our 3D printing technologies. The exciting thing about Figure 4 is that, depending upon the requirement, there is the potential that the part could be printed and dispatched the same day.
Quality of parts
Another benefit of Figure 4 is that its speed does not compromise the quality and accuracy of parts. The surface of parts can also be textured in a similar fashion to the SLA and SLS texturing solution we offer.
When would you use Figure 4?
Figure 4 is ideal for function prototyping and concept models. It can also be used for jigs and fixtures, moulds and master patterns, as well as investment casting jewellery patterns and end-use durable plastic parts.
Find out more
Visit our Figure 4 page to find out more about this technology, including the four materials we have available. We also invite product designers and design engineers to take the tour of our facilities to see what is available and ask us any questions; please contact us to arrange your tour.
Can we help bring your project to life?
Prototype Projects is a UK-based prototyping bureau delivering high quality prototype parts in fast turnaround times. Our next working day dispatch service is available for SLA, SLS, FDM and Figure 4 parts. We also offer a dyeing service for SLS prototype parts.
