Frequently Asked Questions
In prototyping, a variety of materials are used, including plastics (ABS, PLA, nylon), thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), polyurethane (PU), and metals (aluminum, steel, titanium). The material choice depends on the properties needed and the manufacturing process used.
At Houston Plastic Products, we can produce FDM models with ABS plastic using our Stratasys Dimension 3D Printers and your 3D CAD STL files. ABS plastic is durable, functional, and able to withstand rigorous testing, drilling, sanding, painting, and more. Our additional prototyping tools utilize CNC technology to produce machined prototypes from a variety of materials. Reach out to explore our extensive range of tools and material options.
Rapid prototyping offers numerous advantages, including faster design iterations, cost-effective physical prototypes for visualization and validation, and reduced waste with efficient material usage. Because these benefits improve product quality, they accelerate time-to-market and enable quicker and more informed decision-making during the product development process.
Houston Plastic Products has two options for rapid prototyping: 3D printing (additive manufacturing) and machining. Our 3D printed prototypes are made with ABS plastic, and CNC technology allows us to produce machined prototypes from a variety of materials.
Both 3D printing and machining are effective methods, and each yields functional prototypes. Notably, these prototypes can withstand rigorous testing, thereby helping you gain invaluable insights early in the development process. This ensures that your final product exceeds your expectations. So, whether you opt for 3D printing or machining, you can confidently rely on us to consistently deliver exceptional results in rapid prototyping.
