Rapid Prototyping Services
Our Story: Told by co-founder Bill Ward Hablamos Español!
During my many years as an independent inventor, I built dozens of prototypes with my own hands because I struggled to find the right model builder. They either produced mediocre models or charged exorbitant prices.
Several years ago, while developing a game that featured a spherical component that I was unable to make, I again sought out a professional prototype builder. That's when I found Dan Thomas, a veteran industrial designer and fabricator who has produced work for Ford, Mazda, and Jaguar. Dan is fluent in several CAD packages, has been a rapid-prototyping expert since the 1990s and maintains his own cutting-edge fab shop. He quoted me a price that was reasonable and far within my budget. He worked with me to design a CAD model, and, upon approval, printed the prototype. Dan was an inspiring collaborator. The part he made for me was perfect.
After hiring Dan to build a dozen or more prototypes, a few of which helped me land licensing agreements with major manufacturers, I teamed up with Dan to create 3D Solutions. With my 20 years or more of inventing, and his 20-plus years of rapid-prototyping experience, we are perfectly positioned to understand the modeling needs of inventors and help their ideas come alive.
3D Solutions was born
The premiere source for all your prototyping needs.
We are primarily a low cost, fast turnaround, customer friendly rapid prototyping company.
We bring your concepts to life!
While there are many companies that will print your existing CAD design, few will help you create the 3D design without charging thousands of dollars. We work closely with you during the design stage to insure that your sketch or concept turns into a real 3D prototype that can help make your idea a success.
Our Precision Rapid Prototyping Services include:
- CAD Design for Manufacturability
- Additive Technologies
- Subtractive Technologies
- Circuit Board Housing Fabrication
