3D Printing & Prototyping

Plastic manufacturing - design, prototype, tooling, production.

Our plastics manufacturing design team, based in Adelaide, uses 3D CAD software to transform your ideas into design drawings and solid 3D images to make the design stage simple and easy. This allows you to have full interaction and hands on input through each stage of the whole process.

Gadac Plastics also proudly own a Stratasys uPrint SE Plus 3D FDM Printer, running ABS in various colours and a water soluble support medium.

From ergonomics to manufacturing processes, evaluate form, fit and function right from a Gadac desktop. Gadac are able to create realistic marketing models and durable functional prototypes with pinpoint accuracy using FDM Technology to build in real ABSplus thermoplastic.


Creating a prototype can be one of the most enjoyable and rewarding parts of the development process. After the design stage of product development the next step can be the creation of a prototype for assessment purposes. This assessment process normally consists of a visual part inspection and is likely to include a variety of tests to assess the products "fit for purpose" status.

The advantages of Gadac Plastics Prototyping are:

  • Better determine your products strengths and weaknesses
  • Product design, specification and feasibility
  • Gauge consumer interest in product
  • Enhances communication and collaboration
  • Reduces time to market
  • Ensures suitability of packaging

Gadac Plastics utilises the latest rapid prototyping technologies in house and from around the globe. A prototype can be made from our in house 3D Printing process that will closely match the final injection moulded product or from a machining grade material. It can be painted, textured or polished.
