Atlanta, Georgia: November 26, 2001 - Quickparts.com, Inc.,
the premier web-based manufacturer of rapid
prototypes and build-to-order plastic and metal parts,
today announced the release of Online Instantaneous
Quoting for WaterClear(TM) and High Resolution Prototype parts.
This technology, deployed on the Quickparts.com
website within QuickQuote(TM)Rev 3.1, is the latest in a
series of technology releases that enable web-based
instantaneous quoting for build-to-order plastic and metal parts.
Instant Quotes for WaterClear(TM) and High Resolution Prototype
is another significant step forward in the development of
Quickparts' patent-pending instantaneous quoting technology
for prototype parts in quantities from 1-50,000. The
development of both the WaterClear(TM) capability and the
High Resolution capability is a direct result of formal
customer requests for these processes as part of Quickparts'
broad prototyping service offering. The QuickQuote(TM)
engine has thusly been elevated to Revision 3.1.
WaterClear(TM) is a clear stereolithography material manufactured
by DSM Somos. Customers who need clear prototypes, of lenses
for example, can now get instantaneous quotes and place orders
on the Quickparts.com website. High Resolution prototypes
are stereolithography parts manufactured with new equipment
capable of providing three times the resolution of standard
stereolithography parts. Customers who have parts with
features as small as 0.005 inches, such as electrical connectors,
can now get instant quotes and place orders for those parts
on the Quickparts.com website.
"As we continue our rapid growth, with our customer-base now
nearing 600, we are continually asked to provide services
that fill the needs of that growing customer base," said
Mark Mackie, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at
Quickparts.com. "Our mission is to make it easy for our
customers to buy custom-designed parts that meet their
needs, so adding the WaterClear(TM) and High Resolution services,
repeatedly requested by numerous customers, falls right in
line with our mission."
QuickQuote(r) Rev 3.1 is a server-side software system
that provides the registered user of the Quickparts web
site with instantaneous, customized, binding quotes for
rapid prototypes, cast urethane parts, and other
build-to-order manufacturing projects directly from
the users uploaded 3D CAD models.
Quickparts.com sells rapid prototypes, cast urethanes,
and other build-to-order plastic and cast metal parts on
their web site. Users get instantaneous quotes right
on the website using the QuickQuote(TM)engine by uploading
their own CAD data, choosing a production process and
quantity, and clicking "Create a QuickQuote". Their
unique binding quote is prepared and displayed in the
next screen refresh. Quickparts.com, the fastest growing
company in its market, delivers an average of 1300 unique,
customized, web-based instantaneous quotes per
