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.
Improving product development and time to market
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.
