WEB-BASED E-COMMERCE SYSTEM FOR INSTANT QUOTING
AND PROCUREMENT OF RAPID PROTOTYPING PARTS
Huntsville, AL., January 3, 2000 - Quickparts.com, Inc. announced the

E-commerce approach to dramatically simplify and speed up the traditional

At the heart of the Quickparts.com web site is QuickQuote(tm), a
revolutionary breakthrough in automatically and instantly analyzing a user's
custom geometry right on the web site.
QuickQuote(tm) will read the customers solid model, automatically orient the
part geometry for the best quality output for the chosen RP technology (SLA,
SLS, FDM), and instantly produce a price quotation and lead-time estimate.
The user then simply clicks the ORDER button, and the job of producing the
RP model in the chosen RP technology is instantly started.

hours a day, 7 days a week.

directly related to dollars saved.

some time now", stated Ronald L. Hollis P.E., President of Quickparts.com.

the RP out-sourcing industry are first, low prices for RP parts, and second,
fast turn-around time for quotes."
"Quickparts.com directly addresses both of those needs."
