Subtractive Rapid Prototyping Solutions

How Much Will SRP Save You?

Making parts in-house vs. using an outside machine shop

The following examples are real-world parts that were used for a variety of applications from visual concept models to prototypes and functional production parts - all created using Roland subtractive rapid prototyping technologies. SRP gives you a greater choice of materials so you can select the optimum material for your design instead of being limited to proprietary materials from 3D print vendors. The tight tolerances and smooth surface finish of SRP ensure you won't compromise a thing.
