SLS in Full Colour

RapidPro has recently expanded its 3D services to include colour SLS nylon parts and prototypes. Available in several colours including black, blue, red, orange, green and white (see colour palette to the right), the parts are dyed, rather than painted, providing a more durable colour finish.

EOS SLS Nylon parts and prototypes are recommended for good overall performance including strength, chemical resistance and cost effectiveness. The dye does not interfere with any of these properties.

Of course, SLS parts can also be painted to match any PMS or Pantone colour. Even Lexus used painted SLS parts to produce their "Steps" puppets. See the video here.



National Manufacturing Week 2013

RapidPro has just finished up a very exciting week at NMW 2013 where we were pleased to showcase Black Ultem as well as all the processes we carry out at our factory in Mornington.

We were able to highlight many of the new advances in 3D printing and Additive Manufacturing as well as the improvements in "Clear" printed materials and overmoulded Objet Connex parts. 

Many Stratasys machine owners were also surprised to hear about the discounted corporate rate for 3D printing offered by RedEye Australasia as a way of supporting machine owners when they need materials or services that they do not have in-house. Mention the RedEye Corporate Advantage when you place your next order if you have not been receiving this discount or if you have a backlog of printing that you would like to outsource.

It was also a great opportunity to upgrade our promotional material ... some people may be able to recognise the surfer at the bottom of our new poster!!!
