With KREATIZE® you are able to realize your prototype in only few steps.

Reduced development time & simplification of production

Thanks to Rapid Prototyping from an average development time of 10 years to 3 to 4 years.

Reduction in production time and costs

Applied additive manufacturing processes are able to produce prefabricated parts from 3D-CAD-data without any custom made tools. Production time and costs are reduced dramatically.

Individualization of products

Rapid Manufacturing Processes are able to flexibly and to some extent even simultaneously produce components for various product models in variable quantities.

Choosing the ideal Rapid Prototyping or Rapid Manufacturing process pose a great challenge especially for small and medium-sized businesses. Particularly the multitude of different processes and the lack of experience present a high threshold for market entry.

Find the optimal Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Manufacturing process quickly and easily.

The first step to your component is a 3D-CAD model, which you upload to the KREATIZE® manufacturing platform. Your 3D-CAD data have to be in STL format so that we are able to import your design data into our system. Right from the upload the Smart Project Realizer starts to analyse your 3D-CAD data and consider suitable manufacturing processes in the background. Based on further input regarding material, delivery date and quantity the smart software determines estimated delivery time and costs of your component in real-time. Subsequently you will receive an overview of all suitable manufacturing service providers so as to order your component immediately at the supplier of your choice with just a mouse click.

KREATIZE® offers more than 20 different manufacturing processes, the largest variety of materials and the greatest network of manufacturing service providers.

KREATIZE® and the TU Graz

The latest Rapid Prototyping process. 70% cost savings.

KREATIZE® supports the Institute of Hydraulic Fluid Machinery (HFM) at the Graz University of Technology in the realization of technical functional components with one of the latest Rapid Prototyping processes combined with precision casting. This is how a 50% time saving and over 70% cost savings were achieved in the realization of pump components with a delivery time of 5 weeks.

„In a very short amount of time the optimal manufacturing process and a suitable partner for the challenging prototype production was found. The whole procedure was easy, quick and reliable.“

Dipl. Ing. Markus Mosshammer, TU Graz

Rapid Prototyping as Combination of Additive Manufacturing & Investment Casting

The following example represents a comparison of using a combination of Rapid Prototyping and precision casting and conventional precision casting to manufacture various pump components. Using the combination of Rapid Prototyping and precision casting businesses benefit from the advantages of both processes: the high surface quality and the high dimensional accuracy of precision casting as well as the short production time and tool-free production of the wax pattern with Rapid Prototyping.
