Fast, Accurate, Professional Parts

Prototyping is a process of checking, testing, and refining a product or design before it is produced. At APS we specialize in prototyping in two ways; 3D printing and injection molding.

Professional 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing or rapid prototyping, is a process of using a specialized computer-guided printer to build or “grow” a 3D model layer by layer. Whether the method is SLA, FDM, SLS, or any of the other options, you want the right part, in the right material at the right price.

Our team will help you choose the right options for your parts.

The cost of 3D printers has come down in the last few years. However, not every printer is the same and a home kit often pales in comparison to professional printers. APS provides high quality and precision in each build. APS will produce your parts quickly and accurately. Every method has its pros and cons. We, at APS, can help you understand how they are different and what the benefits are of each option.

Our access to technology is your advantage.

APS has both in-house processes such as 5 StereoLithography (SLA) machines, and close associations with other Service Bureaus to provide quick turn-around SLS, Objet, and FDM-based prototypes. APS uses several DSM Somos SLA resins across different size format machines, allowing multiple materials at Micro-Fine resolution to create small and large scale parts and patterns. Our SLA materials are all low moisture absorption resins. APS also provides you with SLS nylon, glass-filled nylon, and flexible rubber-like materials, as well as the gamut of Objet and FDM materials.

We would like to talk to you about your design, and answer your questions. Some commonly asked questions are:

  • "What types of material can be used?"
  • "How big or small can my parts be built?"
  • "How quickly can my parts be built?"
  • "What happens if I don't like the look of the part you made?"
  • "What method of prototyping is the best for my needs?"
