TERA Tehnopolis offers a rapid prototyping service by physically printing the subject in three dimensions with a 3D printer, based on a three-dimensional volumetric image. In recent years, the technology of rapid prototyping with computer-aided design (CAD) has become an essential engineering tool. The factors that stimulated a better development of this technology and its implementation in numerous areas of engineering practices are reduction of the time of product development encouraged through constant innovations and market struggle, greater complexity of products, the need for better models for a better assessment of shapes, dimensions, functionality control, and ergonomics.

Technology Transfer Office (TTO) represents the relationship between the academic and business community, encourages research and expert work, and promotes the protection and commercialization of the findings of that work for the benefit of researchers, components and the University as a whole.
