Rapid Prototyping in public






Russell Anderson, renown Brisbane artist and designer, has an enormous repertoire of work including public art, streetscapes and conceptual artworks.

RapidPro has worked with Russell on several projects, from making marquettes (miniatures of proposed works for grant applications, etc) to patterns for sand casting and vacuum casting, such as the yellow ends on the Sand Worm at Fitzgibbon Playground in Brisbane.

The pattern for the plaque which is mounted with this Public Artwork was made using Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) in the RedEye On Demand Build Centre in Australia. The largest FDM Build Centre in the Southern Hemisphere. The pattern was 550mm in diameter and was ordered, built and shipped to Russell within 48 hours.

RedEye Australasia undoubtedly offers fast and cost efficient rapid prototyping solution. For your instant online quote go to http://www.redeyerpm.com.au/.
