Rapid Prototype

Rapid prototypes made from Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing can help all aspects of a product from product design to manufacturing to sales. More specifically, it can help improve time to market, functionality, communication and can drastically reduce design and tooling costs.

Time to market is extremely critical to the success of a product. Additive Manufacturing /3D Printing enables the designer to utilize an iterative approach in which each iteration can be printed simultaneously and/or within a matter of hours of each print, thus reducing the time needed to complete the product design. The ability to conceptualize, print and test functional designs (products, tools, etc.) quickly, reduces the project timeline and significantly enhances the market release date.

Prototypes are not always functional, however, Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing can create fully functional parts that can be used to test form, fit and function. In many cases, these parts could be utilized in a production setting.

Communication is always one of the most important aspects of a successful project. For many technical individuals and internal organizational meetings, this type of communication can be done with 3D modeling and photographs but, as with any type of communication, the presentation must be geared towards the audience. The ability to touch, feel and test a concept will always be one of the best ways to communicate a design to any audience (managers, designers, production employees, customers, etc.).

Costs are critical to every aspect of a product. During the concept and design phase of a product, tooling costs can add up quickly. Additive Manufacturing /3D Printing can help reduce these costs by having a final product design finished so expensive tooling (molds, presses, fixtures, etc.) can be built, correctly, the first time.

In general, prototypes are a great way to test concepts, decrease time to market and save money for new product development. At Wellstronics3D, production grade prototypes can be delivered on time using Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing.
