3D Prototyping

Rapid prototyping

This is a group of techniques which a designer can used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part or assembly using three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) data.

As this 30 year old technology has now more easily accessible it is now also known a s Desktop Fabrication.

The time and cost savings using rapid prototype models can be as much as 65%

Read the Kisi case study (available to download FREE) and see how a real company utilised Rapid Prototyping on a MakerBot 3D Printer to save real time and money getting their product to market quickly and the real benefits gained from rapid iteration of an idea or concept.

Export the CAD file into a usable .STL or .OBJ file and realise the design in three dimenstions quickly. If you need a Prototype you can upload your design to 

Thingiverse and send it for print or alternatively register with Hubs and find a 3D Printer near you. Hubs - a Protolabs company


3D printed prototypes are a crucial tool for rapidly making cost efficient design modifications before a product goes to manufacturing where these changes will be extremely costly. Time and cost savings using rapid prototype models could be as much as two thirds.Construction of the part or assembly is usually done using 3D printing or "additive manufacturing" technology.

3D Rapid prototyping advancements allow for faster and lower cost prototypes and model fabrication by eliminating manpower and expensive tooling which allow companies and inventors to bring there products and designs to market faster than the competition.

Alternatively you could be desktop prototyping with your own 3D Printer.
