01. Low Volume Manufacturing
Depending on the part size and material, Roadrunner 3D can print 100s to 1000s of parts per week. Our technology cuts costs and material waste while offering more design flexibility. Using our wide assortment of versatile materials, you’ll have your products in hand with greater precision and speed.
By partnering with Roadrunner 3D, you can manufacture and experiment as much as needed without incurring significant costs. No required injection molds. And you can print on demand allowing you to reduce inventory.
03. Mass Customization
Mass customization allows you the flexibility to produce dozens to hundreds of parts that are unique in one print run.
Prototypes and Models
01. Rapid Prototyping
Small-batch rapid prototyping lets you test and refine color, design, and engineering and home in on a final product in a fraction of the time.
02. Functional Prototyping
Test specs for complex assemblies, enclosures, and watertight applications using a variety of high quality, engineering-grade materials.
03. Appearance Models
Let your audience see your vision in detail and full color (black, white, or clear) and with high quality surface finishes when the limits of traditional manufacturing are removed. Medical models, teaching tools, product samples, props, and more come to life when your CAD files meet our 3D printing.
01. Nylons (Polymides):
Roadrunner 3D’s high reusability nylons test the limits of functional part creation, while optimizing cost and part quality. Our production machines using these materials can product 1000s of parts per week with virtually no geometry limitations. We can even print in full color!
Metals are ideal for a variety of industrial applications. Roadrunner 3D offers:
-> 17-4 PH stainless steel, a precipitation hardening steel frequently used in mildly corrosive environments or with high-strength requirements;
-> 316L stainless steel, a fully austenitic metal great in harsh environments;
-> H13 Tool Steel. Abrasion-resistant with exceptional hot hardness, resistance to thermal fatigue cracking, stability in heat treatment. Ideal for both hot and cold work tooling applications;
-> 4140, one of the most versatile steels boasting toughness, high fatigue strength, and abrasion and impact resistance; and
03. Thermo Polymers
With over 100 polymers available, we can produce prototypes and small runs in a material that best suits your application. We can print parts and prototypes that are flexible, clear, or high temperature, and have materials that are certified food-grade.
A fast, low-cost way to improve the appearance of printed parts. Dyeing adds consistent color after post-processing. Ask us about our environmentally friendly options.
Match color to Pantone or RAL or color chips you provide. Perfect-match coloring helps bring arts and entertainment productions to life or ensure consistency in consumer products. Environmentally friendly options are available.
Plating increases the strength and durability of nylon parts. Enhance metal parts with options such as bead blasting, plating, anodizing, powder coating, or chroming. Precision plating is a key to functionality for medical and defense applications.
04. Smoothing and sealing
Vapor smoothing enhances performance and aesthetics of each part creating an injection molding look and feel. Sealed surfaces are easier to dye, easier to certify for skin and food contact, all while keeping dimensional accuracy without marks from fixtures.
