Materialise in Belgium have an on-line ordering service - see
They advertise it as a next day service (with size limitations I
think), but I don't know any further details.

Subject: Order Prototypes on the Internet?

Hello everyone,

I am a student at the University of Southern California and I am
researching the use of the internet to order rapid prototypes. I know
Compression has an online ordering service for rapid prototyping but I
looking for more information on this subject.

I would like to have an offline discussion with anyone who:
 Is using online ordering and can tell me how well it is working?
 Knows of anyone else who has online ordering capability?
 Is interested in ordering or providing prototypes over the internet?
 Is currently working on developing or know someone who is developing an
online ordering system?
 Has any comments about the benefits or issues of ordering online?
 Has any comments about how online ordering will change the industry?
Your feedback is very much appreciated. Please email me at
