RP Marketplace has officially launched to the public. Its online platform is specifically designed for businesses to source and manage professional rapid prototyping services.

For the last two months, RP Marketplace has been on-boarding professional 3D printing service providers to its website, which allows businesses to access Suppliers' services.

RP Marketplace's online platform enables businesses of all types to not only post their projects and receive bids, but also fund and manage their projects through an integrated secure escrow payment system. One of the platform's distinctive features is the ability to create project milestones, each of which can be funded and completed individually.

"Our goal is to streamline the process of sourcing professional rapid prototyping services for small to medium size businesses that don't have the time or money to setup and maintain top-of-the-line machinery needed to produce professional prototypes," said Steven Jaffe, Founder and CEO of RP Marketplace.

"One of the ways RP Marketplace has done that is by integrating helpful tips into the bidding and hiring process. These not only educate Buyers about the types of rapid prototyping services available, but also provide useful information about the suggested materials and printers, as well as what differentiates each Supplier."

Over 25 professional suppliers have already signed up for RP Marketplace, ranging from mid-size niche prototyping companies, to larger engineering firms, offering a wide range of in-house design and prototyping services. RP Marketplace says it will continue to focus on securing suppliers from most major regions in the US in order to ensure businesses can source locally if preferred.

While RP Marketplace is currently concentrating on professional 3D printing and design services, they are planning to expand into other rapid prototyping-related service markets, such as 3D scanning, rapid injection molding, and rapid casting.
