Beautifully Functional Parts & Prototypes
Rapid Prototyping with Milling and 3D Printer TechnologyRoland DG provides a selection of 3D printer technology and milling machines that are perfect for rapid prototyping. CNC mills support a variety of materials – including ABS, nylon, wood, non-ferrous metals, chemical woods, styrene and more – while delivering a smooth surface finish, tight tolerances and a low cost of ownership. 3D printer technology from Roland DG prints photopolymer resins for creating smaller, complex prototypes that would typically require deep undercuts.
The following items are just some of the rapid prototyping applications that are possible with Roland DG technology.
Metal Parts and Prototypes
Roland DG CNC milling devices enable precision production of prototypes from aluminium, aluminium alloys, brass, zinc, tin and many more non-ferrous metals. Create snap-fit parts, models, tools, electronic parts, product designs and proof-of-concepts for thermal and structural trials.
With high-precision Roland DG CNC milling technology, you can mill complicated wooden shapes and sculptural forms out of virtually any wood. Perfect for making industrial prototypes, Roland DG milling machines are also ideal for artistic applications, custom décor items, and limited edition toys and models.
Acrylic, acetal, nylon and ABS are quickly and easily milled with Roland DG desktop and benchtop milling machines. Mill precision fan parts, gears, bearing blocks, tools and thousands more items for accurate proof of concepts. With hundreds of plastics to choose from, you can create limited edition toys, product prototypes, industrial prototypes, electrical parts and casings, models and so much more.
Copper clad, punchboard and other circuit board material can be easily milled with Roland DG CNC milling technology. Perfect for FabLab production and educational purposes, Roland DG’s compact milling machines provide a quick, cost-effective and easy-to-use solution.
Casts for Parts and Prototypes
For creating multiple parts and short run prototypes, Roland DG milling technology enables the casting of wax, plastic and metal for models, industrial parts, special edition toys, jewellery making, snap fit parts, and more.
3D Printed Prototypes
With the monoFAB ARM-10 3D printer, prototypes and parts can be built quickly and easily out of three different photopolymer resins: plastic, flexible plastic and rubber-like material. The ARM-10 is the perfect machine for making quick parts and accessories to solve prototyping problems, including complex hollow shapes.
3D Made Easy with Included Software
Roland DG milling machines come complete with SRP Player Software to prepare your CAD model for rapid prototype manufacturing, with no programming skills required. Roland DG also provides Player AM software for the monoFAB ARM-10 3D printer, offering simple drag and drop set up of print-ready 3D designs.
