Much More Than Prototyping: Star Prototype Expands, Changes Name to Star Rapid

Much More Than Prototyping: Star Prototype Expands, Changes Name to Star Rapid

A few months ago, we enjoyed the opportunity to talk to Gordon Styles, President and Founder of Star Prototype. An early adopter of additive manufacturing, the rapid prototyping company was using 3D printing since its launch back in 2005. While not exclusively focused on additive manufacturing, the company has used the technology heavily in its manufacturing services, which also include […]

Mitsui Seiki USA to Introduce the Vertex 55X-H, a New Hybrid CNC Machine and 3D Printer

Before additive manufacturing, there was subtractive manufacturing, which, like its name suggests, is the process of “subtracting” or cutting away material from a solid amount to create a new object. While it’s the opposite of additive manufacturing, which adds material layer by layer to build an object, one hasn’t replaced the other, and, in fact, they often go hand […]
