Prototyping

3D printed part

3D printed prototypes allow design and engineering teams to provide expedited design, proofs-of-concept, and models built to scale.  3D printing enables iterative design with the added benefits of real-time feedback and concept testing capabilities. 

3D prototypes offer many advantages, including the ability to print and test multiple iterations while saving time and money with faster processes. 

A few examples of 3D prototyping applications:

  • Form, fit, and function testing
  • New product samples
  • Presentation models
