Desktop 3D printing empowers engineers and product designers to rapidly prototype in-house, saving time and costs at every stage of product development.
Desktop 3D printing empowers engineers and product designers to rapidly prototype in-house,
saving time and costs at every stage of product development.
From accelerating prototyping to cutting the lead time and costs of outsourcing tooling, engineering and prototyping opportunities are benefitted from 3D printing.
Elevate initial ideas with low-risk concept explorations that look like real products. From CAD to physical object in no time, rapidly develop, evaluate, and iterate a range of designs in-house.
Looks-Like: Test design iterations and communicate ideas to stakeholders affordably and quickly.
Works-Like: Reliably develop proofs of concept and test functional prototypes with materials closely matching common injection-molded plastics.
Feels-Like: Simulate a range of materials from rubber to rigid, and create prototypes with the smooth finish and feel of end products.

Use advanced materials to design for manufacturability. Create small-batch runs or one-off custom solutions for comprehensive field and in-house testing before investing in expensive tooling for production.
With 3D printing, design doesn’t have to end when production begins. Continuously improve products and respond quickly and effectively to issues on the line with jigs and fixtures that improve assembly or QA processes.
