Watch the new Objet movie here. It showcases just some of the materials available and the resolution you can achieve. Obviously your parts will not come to life and print their own family, but the individual components at the end are examples of the finish you can expect. Of course RapidPro's Connex Machine does have a higher Z resolution than the parts shown, so you can expect an even finer surface finish when you choose to build with us.

When Buzz Products were asked to work on last summer's VB promotion, nobody realised how popular the VB fridge would be!
The campaign involved buying 12 slabs of VB to get a free beer fridge which played the VB theme song every time a beer was requested. 3000 fridges were originally built, but these were sold out with 3 weeks, so more were ordered to cope with demand.
"The shelving inside the fridge needed to be strong enough to hold a slab of beer, and we needed the parts fast," says Doug Buckle, Creative Director at Buzz Products. "RapidPro always provides us with amazing service and a fast turnaround so we had no hesitation in taking the project to them for prototyping."
"We discussed the requirements of the project and Buzz's expectations," says Simon Bartlett, Engineering Manager at RapidPro. "From that information we tailored a solution to meet their tight timeline, as well as strength and durability concerns."
"ABS-M30 using FDM technology was the obvious choice and we were able to have finished parts delivered to Buzz within 36 hours."
In addition to the VB Vending machine, Buzz also developed a thermo-cooler bag and a VB ice alarm to notify would-be drinkers when their beer is getting too cold!

Did you know the ATO offers Research and Development tax incentives ?
The ATO website says:
If you are engaged in research and development you might be eligible to claim a tax offset under the research and development tax incentive. The program is jointly administered by AusIndustry (on behalf of Innovation Australia) and the ATO and replaces the research and development tax concession.
