Rapid Prototyping (RP) enables the quick fabrication of physical models using three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) data.

Used in a wide range of industries, Rapid prototyping allows companies to turn innovative ideas into successful end products rapidly and efficiently.


FDM is a clean, simple-to-use, office-friendly 3D printing process.

Thermoplastic parts can endure exposure to heat, chemicals, humid or dry environments, and mechanical stress.


Rapide One’s chassis has been crafted from the finest aircraft grade aluminum to ensure a solid foundation.

Heat Bed

Polished A386 Aluminum Heat Bead precision honed for even heating and stick.


We have redesigned the extruder to enable easy change over of print materials without the need to tighten or loosen screws.

Simply flick the switch and just feed from the top and your good to go.

Build Volume

Rapide One’s build volume is 170 x 170 x 170mm.


Rapide One can print ABS, PLA, PVA, Nylon or Plastic.   Using Rapide 3D cartridges allows for easy storage of material and change over when printing.
