  • Create prototypes in a fraction of the time of traditional methods
  • Cut costs
  • Eliminate tooling
  • Manufacture functional demonstration parts
  • Produce low volume end-user parts and components

Exposition

The RAPID Exposition is a visual, creativity-inspiring, hands-on learning playground. The RAPID show floor offers a variety of solutions for additive manufacturing, 3D printing, 3D imaging/scanning, DDM, and rapid prototyping. It will include OEMs, service bureaus, and related technology consultants and partners – the vendors your business needs to know to advance in the additive manufacturing industry.

No longer an “emerging technology,” additive manufacturing is leading industry innovation. From design to prototype production parts, vision becomes reality at RAPID, North America’s longest-running additive manufacturing and 3D imaging/scanning exposition.
