Next week, RapidMade celebrates its first full year in our Tigard facility! It's hard to believe it's been a year already. The plant has undergone many improvements since we first moved in. Our team has reorganized the shop's lay out to improve work flow and ensure our engineers, industrial designers, 3D printers, HAAS CNC and thermoformer have ample room to produce lots of parts, prototypes, tools and forms.
RapidMade is pleased to share that HP is expanding material options for its Jet Fusion 3D printer. Recognizing that material selection, performance, quality and cost have been barriers to additive manufacturing adoption, HP has focused aggressively on product development and accessibility.
Now, in addition to its 3D High Reusability PA 12, HP plans to offer:
- 3D High Reusability PA 12 Glass Beads - designed to produce "stiff, low-cost, quality parts"
- 3D High Reusability PA 11 - formulated to create "ductile, quality parts" at an unbeatable price
A key to its speed-to-market success has been HP's decision to encourage an Open Platform where key suppliers collaborate to accelerate material innovation.
RapidMade looks forward to including these revolutionary nylon powders in its operations.
In a mere 66 hours (but who's counting), our HP Jet Fusion will be delivered to our new location. If you are as excited about our new 3D printer as we are, why not see what it can do for you? Fill out the Quick Quote and get in the queue. Try the latest breakthrough in Additive Manufacturing... the
