Metro Rapid Prototyping is celebrating its 25th anniversary of providing customers with high quality, rapid prototyping services. Starting with one of the first stereolithography and prototype machines in the mid 1980's Metro Rapid Prototyping has expanded its service bureau to include five 3D machines. These machines produce models 24/7 to meet our customers' rapid prototyping and 3D printing needs.
Metro Rapid Prototyping has perfected the art of rapid prototyping.
Here is how we do it:
We work closely with you to insure accurate data transfer.
Your model is built on machines calibrated for accuracy and consistency.
Our experienced staff of skilled model makers cleans your stereolithography models with precision maintaining the close tolerances you expect in each part.
Multiple parts are produced from specially designed silicone molds.
Physical properties, color and texture that meet your design specifications using a large variety of urethane materials.
Insert molding, 2 shot molding, blow molding and extrusion models can be produced quickly without expensive tooling or long lead times.
Custom color and graphics to meet your most demanding requirements.
Casting patterns and investment cast (quickcast) patterns.

The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
