Introducing Prototyping with Full Circle Media Solutions
At FMS we offer one off prototyping. If you need a CNC cut foam one-off of a new product or a SLA (stereolithography) manufactured exact component for a new build we can provide them in short order.
Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. 3D printing is also considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling (subtractive processes).
3D Stereo printing provides accurate concept models, master patterns and investment casting patterns in record time. Along with PolyJet, SLA is among the most accurate and precise rapid prototyping technologies available. Complete in-house finishing capabilities for production-like prototypes ensures that your models and patterns are delivered on time and ready for immediate application. We offer 3 levels of 3D printing.A wide variety of materials are available to meet your project needs and give you freedom of choice.
|Applications||Layer Thickness||Envelope||Lead Time||Tolerance|
|Standard||Good for prototypes and master patterns
that need to be built quickly and economically
|0.007"||Unlimited||2-5 Days||± 0.015″ or ± 0.002″/”|
|Premium||Excellent for prototypes and master patterns;
provides excellent detail and requires less finishing work
|0.005″||Unlimited||2-5 Days||± 0.015″ or ± 0.0015″/”|
|HDSL||Provides exceptional detail in less time, requiring
less post finishing work; suitable for high-quality parts and patterns
|0.004″||25″ x 29″ x 21″||2-5 Days||± 0.010″ or ± 0.001″/”|
Constructing a foam model is a good way to show your client the development process of a product The foam represents an idea rather than a finished product. Designers like to show their clients rough foam models and prototypes a few times during development and then knock their socks off with the finished product prototype at the end. We offer Rapid Prototyping, CNC machining, Appearance Models, Foam Models and Automotive Paint Finishes. Turn around in as little as 2 days on our high-speed CNC machines in the specific material you want.
