Axis offers a wide range of prototype material options. Our Rapid Prototype Material Selector Guide ensures the right process and material is chosen no matter what the application or end use of your prototype parts or short run parts made using additive manufacturing process. It incorporates and compares various prototype material properties and metrics of SLA materials, SLS materials, Objet materials, DMLS materials and FDM rapid prototype materials. The Rapid Prototype Material Selector Guide is an easy to use one page reference for clients to quickly find the right prototype material for your project. And if you can't find what you need there, one of our experts will find just the right specialty or exotic prototyping material for your project. As in the manufacturing world, there is no one do it all rapid prototype material that can serve all purposes. Equally, there is no one Rapid Prototyping Process that is perfect for all part sizes, part geometries, and part quantities. Our perfect array of rapid prototype materials and processes ensures that we can find the right mix of materials for virtually all applications.

The prototype materials listed in this section is designed to help our clients choose the best prototype material that resemble engineered plastic for almost all applications. Axis RP (Rapid Prototype) material matrix includes prototype materials such as: FAR25.283 aeronautic certified prototype material, smoke flame and toxicity rated prototype materials, self extinguishing prototype materials, medically approved prototype materials, ISO 10.993 certified prototype materials, USP class VI (6) prototype materials, and many more approved prototype materials. The prototype material selector guide is made to encompass a wide variety of material characteristics from highly flexible prototype materials suitable for plastic buckles or snap fits to extremely rigid prototype materials best for air tunnel tests and prototypes used in wind tunnel tests. Other materials have specific characteristics such as: high impact and high temperature resistance prototype material.
