saving time and costs at every stage of product development.

 

Integrating 3D printing into Engineering and Prototyping

From accelerating prototyping to cutting the lead time and costs of outsourcing tooling, engineering and prototyping opportunities are benefitted from 3D printing.

1. Concept Exploration

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.

2. Rapid Prototyping

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.

3. Pre-Production

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.

4. 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.
