Met-L-Flo Inc. offers rapid prototyping services in a variety of processes depending on the desired final prototype. We do both high and low-fidelity prototypes. A low-fidelity prototype is very simple and able to be produced very quickly due to the simplistic design. While a high-fidelity prototype looks and acts just like the final product. We can accomplish rapid prototyping for finishes and additives for metals, tints, and transparent surfaces. We can also make castings and moldings with rapid prototypes that can be ready for production if needed.
To get started with Met-L-Flo Inc. today on your rapid prototype call us today at 1800.638.5356 or fill out the form along the right and an associate will get back to you shortly.
The Rapid Prototyping Process
- Selection of Rapid Prototyping Service
3D Printer Process
The most recent method is the use of 3D printing services technology. Rapid prototyping with a 3D printer brings exact digital designs into reality in a matter of minutes versus hours or days using the machining or molding processes in the past. The 3D printing capabilities now offer better rapid prototypes than ever before, faster than ever before. Even though 3D printing isn’t as new as everyone thinks, the technology, ease, and precision of the products they produce have indeed come a long way in recent years.
Rapid Prototyping for Any Stage of Production
Met-L-Flo Inc. offers rapid prototypes for:
- Vacuum Forming
- Pressure Forming

Our technicians can help you develop a new prototype based on specs, previous parts, or a replacement for a part you have in-hand. Our prototyping methods are state-of-the-art and you will be completely satisfied you came to Met-L-Flo Inc.
We love working with you from idea to prototype. We have engineers that will listen to your problem or idea, propose a solution, and start producing 3D data to help this come to fruition. The nice thing about working with additive manufacturing is the ability to alter or edit your 3D design data before building all parts, or when a problem is noticed. We store all 3D data so we are able to come back to the CAD files or reproduce the parts whenever you need them. For an estimate on an STL file, submit it via our website here
