About SKM Rapid



Perfectly shaping ideas is in our DNA. We have been producing high-quality plastic 3D models for more than 20 years, long before 3D printing became a trend.

At the end of the 1980s, Joop Soetens, Jos Meulendijk, and Rudolf van Kersbergen were the pioneers in the field of 3D printing at Philips. In 1997, they founded SKM together – the letters refer to their surnames. The baton was taken over by today’s pioneers. With the latest developments and techniques of our time, they continue under the name SKM.

Our services

We make prototypes, visual models, zero-series or an initial print run. Together we determine the most suitable technique, the material and the quality of the finishing. This way, an idea becomes tangible and you can present your idea at a trade fair, uncover minor mistakes or launch an initial production on the market. Our advanced machines and our experts are fully at your disposal.
