3D Creativity and New Products Rapid Prototyping Laboratory

The main objective of the rapid prototyping laboratory is to develop a research capacity for the application of innovative technologies for materialization of virtual 3D models with complex forms in a very short time.

This lab’s mission is to create innovative practices and to build unique and accessible opportunities for research and development in the field of 3D creativity through systems for quick physical manifestation of new ideas and products in order to shorten the time to market.

Activities of 3D Creativity and New Products Rapid Prototyping Laboratory:

  • Application of high technologies in the area of Reverse Engineering using a unique for Bulgaria 3D high precision contact and non-contact measuring system and specialized software.
  • Building of conceptual, preproduction or unique products using 3D Printing technology (Low Volume Production) from polymeric materials.
  • Building of conceptual, preproduction or unique products and building of preproduction or industrial moulding metal tools through the Laser Additive & High Speed Milling technology.
  • Quick construction of conceptual, preproduction or unique products and models from ceramics, plastics and other materials.
