In order to create a part or a product, you will need to create a prototype, with the help of which you will be able to create what interests you. This can involve very high costs, but also a long time until the start of production.
Thanks to today’s technology, this can now be done much easier with the help of a 3D printer. This 3D printing process is fast, safe and cost-effective, which means that you can benefit from the desired products in a very short time.
To achieve this you will need to create a 3D model which will be built easily thanks to the modeling software that was designed specifically for 3D printing. With the help of this technology you can create different complex models, with several different materials.
Those who have already turned to additive manufacturing have understood the advantages that this 3D printing technology offers, both in terms of quality and low production costs, as well as in terms of speed and customization.
What are the benefits of 3D prototyping?
1. Cost efficiency
Compared to traditional production methods, which require specially designed molds and tools for each individual customized product, 3D printing is a more convenient way to create the desired prototype. By creating a CAD file and modifying it, the prototype will have no additional costs, and can be made immediately, at a lower production cost.
2. Time gained
Time is valuable in any company. Therefore, it is preferable that the prototyping process be as short as possible. You don’t have to wait for the creation of a mold to make the desired product, but you can produce it much faster, which is a major advantage of this type of innovative manufacturing.
Also, time will no longer be wasted waiting for the delivery, as the production of the prototype can be done on the spot, right in your company’s premises.
3. You can create different iterations
Creative freedom is very important when you want to develop a new product. Using a 3D modeling software, the prototype can be created and modified easily, regardless of the complexity.
One of the main advantages of 3D printing is that the creation process does not require a special mold every time you make changes. You can create countless different iterations, which is a much easier and faster way to get the desired product.
4. Prototype testing
Using a very large number of materials, the created prototype can be subjected to tests to be checked in terms of quality and to be able to improve it in future iterations.
3D printing is the most efficient way to create a prototype, both from a financial and speed perspective. Customizing and creating parts has never been easier, which is why additive manufacturing has become the preferred way for companies to create prototypes and develop new innovative products.
