There’s always a lot going on for SEMA-member manufacturers at the SEMA Garage Innovations Center. The resources available can help you drastically cut your product development time and costs. In particular, the SEMA Rapid Prototyping program creates ABS plastic prototypes of your designs at a reduced members-only rate. The end result is faster product validation, thanks to the ability to produce prototypes without the need of a casting mold or CNC programming.

Models are printed on Dimension 3D printers, allowing you to test the form, fit and function of your product with a tough ABS plastic prototype. The completed models can also be sanded, painted or chrome-plated for a more finished look.
