PrintCity helps engineering manufacturer produce more flexible prototypes

PrintCity has worked with Rotite Technologies Ltd to manufacture engineering parts for an end-use application.

Using CFF technology in Onyx Nylon filament, PrintCity worked with Rotite to rapidly prototype the part. After testing, a more flexible material was required.

PrintCity produced two variations of the part in SLA and FDM technology, using flexible resin and TPU 95.

“It was good to work with PrintCity on this project as there was a need for speed of turnaround, technical support and production flexibility. They delivered on all fronts. We look forward to working with PrintCity again and forging a strong partnership going forward.”

“We can’t believe that our prototype is now built and in our hands. It’s incredible that we can design and 3D print something so quickly and the response so far has been overwhelming.”
