Experiment with your design before moving into the production phase

At once efficient, accurate and realistic, our functional prototypes allow you to experiment with your design before moving into the production phase.

Confirm a part’s characteristics and mechanical functionality in order to:

  • Prove the value of a concept to potential investors and customers;
  • Guarantee design quality;
  • Ensure project feasibility;
  • Get your product to market faster.
Experiment with your design before moving into the production phase

Test and correct your product’s performance

Guarantee your project’s success

By imitating the actual product, a prototype allows you to put your part to the test and make any necessary modifications before beginning production. You can rest assured that the finished product will be functional and the project will be a complete success.

Enjoy the many advantages of a Solaxis prototype:
  • Designed with materials equivalent to those of the finished product;
  • Testable in real-life conditions;
  • Several simultaneous iterations enabled by 3D printing;
  • Thanks to the largest format offered by the industry (3 x 2 x 3 ft envelope) and the possibility of creating an even larger assembly, very large parts can be built by the Solaxis team.
Guarantee your project’s success

Limit your risks

Meet your production deadlines and avoid added expenses thanks to Solaxis. We undertake to provide a high-quality product and to abide by the delivery deadline.

Work with us and enjoy reliable service:
  • Analysis and understanding of technical requirements;
  • Strong command of the language of manufacturing and engineering;
  • Qualified project managers who make sure the project goes according to plan;
  • Prototype performance guarantee.
Limit your risks

Save time and money

Time is money! How much does each day of lateness cost you? Detecting and correcting errors from the outset of the design process allows you to go to market faster and boost your profitability.

Fast-track your projects with 3D printing:
  • The technology offers an alternative to machining by speeding up the production of geometrically complex parts;
  • Our manufacturing speed makes for delivery in days or weeks, depending on the model size;
  • We work together with you to choose the right manufacturing position and materials in order to optimize your value for money and meet your requirements.
