The longest established Rapid Prototyping bureau in the UK and Ireland, LPE set the standard for quality prototype models.
Rapid Prototyping refers to the process of building a solid 3D object, layer by layer from 3D CAD data. Popular across a wide range of industry sectors from consumer goods to medical devices, from aerospace to fashion Rapid Prototyping has proven an invaluable design tool.
A prototype model allows for the effective communication of ideas, rapid customer/inventor buy in and early design verification. The use of 3D models allows designers identify any potential build issues within the early stages of the product development cycle and can eliminate costly tooling errors.
In short “a picture is worth a thousand words” but a model is the whole story.
At LPE we are committed to helping you tell the whole story to maximise your return on investment. Our technology range and unparalleled experience as a Rapid Prototyping service bureau ensure you receive unbiased advise on the best process and material for your individual prototyping project.
