Rapid Prototyping.

    Hi All,

    I was looking for a referral to a Rapid Prototyping service (or to any  people/individuals with printers/machines) and wondered if members of the Inventors Forum enjoyed working with anyone in particular.

    I know there was a gentleman that was offering services at the last members meeting, but I did not manage to get his card and info.  Could anyone share his information here?

    Maybe this post could become a list of recommended companies/individuals that we all could use to contact when looking for rapid prototyping?

    (or maybe there is another place on the http://www.inventorsforum.org site that I don’t know of yet that offers a list like this?)

    I happen to be in the West Los Angeles area, and would love to find someone in this area if possible… but that's not a firm necessity.

    For my current project, I have CAD files.  I'm just looking for someone to print the objects I've created in a firm material like ABS plastic.

    Thanks for any help!

    Best,

     --J.Andre.

    The  member at the last meeting who spoke about his own 3D printing machine is Carlos Pinel.

    His website is      http://www.alucinor.net

    Email:                info@alucinor.net

    Phone:               714-858-0669


    Also there is GrowIt3D in Lake Forest.
    They have an open house every month and 7 different 3D printing technologies available.

    Their website is   http://www.growit3d.com/

    Emails                several

    Phone:               949-305-4004

    Check them both out. Watch their videos on YouTube.
    You can email them CAD files to print, but maybe it would be better to go visit and eat lunch with them first. Let us know how it all goes and what you learn about 3 Dimensional printing!

    Happy Inventing!

    David
