3D printing for prototyping
Prototyping is an essential step in the product development process. 3D printing is widely used to for the creation of prototypes that function in the same way as the intended end-use parts.

Improve product development and time to market with 3D printed prototypes
3D printing has been used for prototyping for the last 30 years, since it’s a fast and reliable way to produce multiple design iterations. This effectively minimizes risk and resources in the product development phase.
There is a broad range of different materials that allows product development teams to test the prototypes and their performance in real world conditions when exposed to chemicals, weather or mechanical loads.
Functional prototyping with 3D printing makes it easy for product development to create multiple iterations before proceeding into production tooling. This allows companies to shorten their lead times and avoid costly mistakes, when introducing new products to the market.
The 3D printing team at PLM Group has several years of experience with helping companies find the optimal 3D printing solution for their tooling needs. We work with the world’s leading brands to ensure you get a 3D printing solution that fits your needs.
”Yovinn’s relationship with PLM Group stretches back ten years”, says Markus Hallberg, CEO of Yovinn. ”They have been very supportive when it comes to Solidworks, and now also with building our 3D Hub here in Gothenburg. We really look forward to develop our relationship with PLM Group, and we hope that the next ten years will be as good as the first ten.”Keep reading »
