RedEye Australasia is Australia's largest FDM build centre, and part of Stratasys and RedEye On Demand worldwide - the world’s leading rapid prototype and parts builders. Facilitated by RapidPro in Melbourne, RedEye On Demand Australasia produces high quality thermoplastic parts and prototypes by employing the latest in Rapid Prototyping technology … Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM).

A true direct digital manufacturing solution, FDM easily converts 3D CAD files into fully operational working parts using a range of engineering thermoplastic materials, such as a 140+ degree C polyphenylsulfone and pc/iso, a material approved for medical applications (ISO 10993-1).

Managing complex part geometry with ease, FDM removes prior design limitations and tooling constraints producing high quality, fully repeatable parts in one piece. And because FDM prototypes are working parts, it streamlines product development, getting finished products to market faster. It is a tue Direct Digital Manufacturing solution with online instant quoting.

Gearheads Boycott Scrap Yards and Swap Meets

It's a problem that's all too familiar for custom automobile enthusiasts - finding replacement parts. Featured in this month’s edition of Street Thunder magazine, Eric Anderson reveals how FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) gives you the power to print your own parts and put the fun back in restoring vintage and muscle cars.

Depending on size and complexity, most parts can be produced with FDM in less than 24hours. Because FDM uses real thermoplastics, you can create strong parts that hold up under high pressure and temperatures - perfect for automobile components. Ultimately, it means you can design a part today and have a real part shipped to you the next morning.

If you like restoring cars, but hate chasing down replacement parts - read the entire article. It'll give you the inside scoop on how you can use direct digital manufacturing services (sometimes called 3D printing services) to get parts fast.
