Rapid Prototyping Benchmark - 3D Printers

What Readers Have Said...


"The Rapid prototyping benchmark is a great professional report, and it gives a realistic picture of the 3D printers technology of today. It contains the argumentation to invest in one of these new technologies responding to your needs. We can only regret that there are only few benchmarks on these technologies. The difficulty will be to keep it "up to date" with the fast development of the machines and the materials."

Olivier Jay, Project Manager / Consultant, Teknologisk Institut


"A pretty good piece of work remarkably well presented."

Dr. Roger L. McCarthy, P.E., Chairman, Exponent, Inc.


"This is the best independent evaluation I ever saw. You picked up not only a single part but three different parts to better accommodate the different sizes and geometries."

Bene Padovani, MultiCad


"The information in your report is very beneficial and will support my report to management."

Wayne L. Foss, Producibility Engineering, Rockwell Collins, Inc.


"I was recently handed a copy of your excellent Rapid Prototyping benchmark study and was wondering whether you would object to me using your findings as the basis for a forthcoming rapid prototyping feature in the Design Engineering section of the Engineer magazine. I think it contains some extremely useful information for our readers."

Jon Excell, Associate Editor - Design Engineering, The Engineer


"Carleton University's Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering is interested in purchasing a new 3D Printer. This printer will be used by undergraduate engineering students including a first year class of about 700 students. The course coordinator of these engineering design and manufacturing courses is pretty impressed by the Benchmark report."

Tabassum Aziz, Carleton University Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering


"I have recently had the pleasure of reading your report "Rapid Prototyping Benchmark, 3D printers" of October 2003. I find your work very qualified and interesting."

Henning Henningsen, R&D Manager, Dicon A/S


"Thank you for your very informative and very well done document."

Reda Belarbia, CAD/CAM PTC System Administrator, Ferrari SpA
