Realize SLA Materials Comparison Sheet

“In my years of experience in contracting out rapid prototyping, I’ve found Realize, Inc. to be the most reliable outfit we’ve dealt with by far in terms of getting what we want, when we want. Most of the time prototypes are turned around even quicker than anticipated with absolutely no degradation in the quality of the parts. Their ability to turn around high priority jobs at a moments notice has made them invaluable to our design and market research processes. I’ve really come to appreciate their professionalism and personal attention to detail that gives me the confidence the parts will be done right the first time. Their responsiveness coupled with their creativity in materials and processes really sets Realize apart and makes them a valued resource I trust and rely upon.”
