About Rapid Prototype Services, LLC
Ken Brace established Rapid Prototype Services, LLC in 2004 using FDM technology with the goal of helping address manufacturing issues with 3D printing capabilities. A UCF Mechanical Engineering graduate, Ken Brace has 20 years of experience including running a precision sheet metal factory.
“My father and I owned and operated a precision sheet metal company from 1984-2001, employing 60 people with 35,000 square feet of shop floor space. I started Rapid Prototyping Services using FDM technology because I felt the plastic models this process creates were far superior in strength and flexibility to the other processes on the market.”
Today, Rapid Prototype Services continues to deliver affordable, high-quality 3D prototypes with an incredibly fast turnaround.

Philanthropy & Recognitions
Who We Are Is How We Give Back
We’ve donated 3D printers to Brevard County Schools and helped train teachers how to use each machine. This helped benefit the hands-on education of future engineers and students interested in bionics. Speaking of bionics, we’ve also donated two industrial 3D printers to Limbitless Solutions, a non-profit dedicated to empowering disabled children with personalized 3D-printed prosthetics.
If you’ve ever seen a video of Robert Downey Jr. delivering Iron Man bionic arms to children, those may have been printed on our machines! Our donation to Limbitless Solutions continues to help advance affordable, personalized bionics and prosthetic partial arms for children with disabilities. Lockheed Martin awarded our company with the HIGH FIVE AWARD for outstanding performance in the fabrication of 2000 3D printed drill plates and stated we’re a model supply chain partner.
