Rapid prototyping is used in a variety of industries, by Fortune 500 companies and small businesses alike, to speed up development, decrease costs, improve communication, and ultimately create better products.
Prototyping is an integral part of any design process; holding a physical draft of a product illuminates the ideas and concepts behind a feature, allowing for functional parts to be produced and tested at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods.
The emergence of desktop 3D
printing has enabled rapid same-day prototyping to become feasible in product development, allowing companies to get better products to market faster than their competition.
With in-house 3D printing, engineers can quickly iterate between digital designs and physical prototypes.
It is now possible to create multiple prototypes within the same workday and carry out quick iterations of design, size, shape, or assembly based on the results of real-life testing and analysis.
Formlabs desktop printers have become integral in many businesses’ rapid prototyping
