Atlanta, GA, May 10, 2004 - Quickparts (www.Quickparts.com), the leading provider of custom-manufactured plastic and metal parts, today announced the deployment of MultiQuote™, a new option that enables Quickparts customers to instantly quote and compare multiple prototyping processes. MultiQuote™ provides instant price quotes for Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), and Cast Urethanes / RTV Molding.
The new MultiQuote™ option is available to customers as part of Quickparts’ proprietary QuickQuote® engine. Users simply upload their 3D CAD data and choose MultiQuote™ from the process worksheet. The process/price comparison is then presented instantly. In addition to providing price comparisons, customers are able to compare material properties, applications, and lead times for the SLA, SLS, FDM and Cast Urethane processes.

With MultiQuote™, our customers get the ability to instantly compare different manufacturing processes, ensuring that they find the best process for their prototype needs.” said Mark Mackie, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Quickparts.
The new MultiQuote™ option will be on display at the Quickparts booth (#435) at the Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing Show in Dearborn, Michigan on May 10-13, 2004. Company representatives will be available for questions as they demonstrate Quickparts’ patent-pending QuickQuote® instant quoting engine.
