Noblesville, Ind. – With the addition of an iPro 8000 SLA production printer, Realize Inc. continues as a leader in the rapid prototyping industry.

"The 8000 gives us more large-part capacity," said Todd Reese, president of Realize. "It also allows us to expand our material offerings for large pieces."
