Prototypes faster than ever...
The term 3D Printing usually describes smaller desktop-sized Additive Manufacturing machines used to create early stage prototypes. 3D Printers can build parts in an expanding variety of plastics, wood-like materials, rubber-like materials, and even chocolate!
Every 3D Printing technology, no matter how it is physically accomplished, builds parts in a layer by layer fashion by creating a single, flat cross-sectional layer of a part on a platform and then adds the next layer of material on top of the previous layer.
The actual individual layer thickness will vary from one 3D Printing technology to another and after many hours and hundreds, or more often, thousands of layers later, a physical object emerges that can be used for product testing and evaluation.
Works Well For: Early evaluations, confirmation of shape & form, quick turn-around, and affordable prototypes.
We use several 3D Printing technologies for early stage prototyping including both low and high resolution 3D Printing technologies such as Fused Deposition Modeling, Selective Laser Sintering, and ColorJet Printing. For higher fidelity later stage prototypes we use advanced Additive & Subtractive Manufacturing technologies (learn more on our Prototyping Services page).
Each 3D Printing material and technology offers unique advantages and disadvantages but they all provide great ways to build new product designs in low quantities without the setup costs of high volume production runs.
Affordable 3D Printing Technologies:
FDM - Fused Deposition Modeling
SLS - Selective Laser Sintering
