Optimise your design by using physical prototypes during the design process. 

Use Code: APPLEGATE when requesting a quotation and receive a 15% discount on your first order.  Email prototypes@materialise-rp.co.uk, with your STL/IGES or STP file for a quick quotation.


Rapid Prototyping has become essential during the design process of a product. By seeing and touching a physical model, you will find it much easier to identify the areas of your product that require improvement.

Materialise offers the complete range of rapid prototyping technologies to realise your product in 3D. We thoroughly analyse your project with you to see which rapid prototyping technology is the best solution for your application.


You can confidently count on the expert knowledge of the Materialise team for file preparation, technology selection, material choice and final finish.

Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing:

Is your product is aimed at a niche market?

There are numerous applications where the quantities required are too small to justify a conventional production mould investment. Using layer-based technologies for end production offers a way out in this situation.

It not only offer obvious cost and lead-time advantages, but also provides increased design freedom and the possibility to personalise products. Typical applications are concept cars, customised products and freeform design products.

Low Volume Manufacturing

Low Volume Manufacturing : Continuous improvement of our technologies and software has resulted in a growing demand for small series production parts. It has now become economically feasible to use our rapid prototyping systems to manufacture parts in larger quantities.

We have a whole range of techniques for the production of small series, which can be used for diverse applications:

  • Personalised manufacturing
  • Bespoke finish and custom made parts
  • Test series
  • End production series
  • Rapid Manufacturing
  • Metal to Plastic design and engineering
