Reasons Why 3D Printing is the Go-To Choice for Product Prototyping Prototyping is a vital stage in designing parts and components, and it even plays a role in getting your inventions out into the world. When it comes to developing prototypes for visual or functional purposes, there are many benefits to choosing3D printing. Better Material Selection
One of the hardest parts of product prototyping comes down to choosing the right material. In some cases, you may want an incredibly flexible plastic that can be printed to confoƌŵ to aŶ iŶdiǀidual’s uŶiƋue ďody. IŶ otheƌ Đases, you ŵay need the strength and resiliency of a titanium alloy. The good news is that 3D printing can give you all of that and more. OŶĐe you’ǀe deĐided ǁhat you Ŷeed, it’s easy to upload the desigŶ ǀia CAD and allow the machine to handle the rest.
Less Expense
Even though3D printingis a relatively new technology when compared to traditional manufacturing, the truth is that it can actually cost you less. WheŶ you ask a typiĐal ŵaŶufaĐtuƌeƌ to Đƌeate youƌ pƌototype, you’ƌe payiŶg foƌ Ŷot oŶly theiƌ tiŵe, ďut also foƌ theiƌ aďility to deǀelop ŵolds aŶd otheƌ speĐial tools they’ll Ŷeed to Đƌeate youƌ pƌoduĐt according to your specifications. This can quickly beĐoŵe Đostly. With 3D pƌiŶtiŶg, theƌe’s Ŷo Ŷeed to Đƌeate ŵolds oƌ develop special tools. The machine only needs the right materials and the CAD design.
More Precision
If theƌe’s oŶe thiŶg that 3D pƌiŶtiŶg does ďetteƌ thaŶ aŶy otheƌ ŵethod of pƌoduĐt pƌototypiŶg, it’s pƌeĐisioŶ.3D printing technology affords you the ability to create even the most complex geometric shapes, including those with hollows, cutouts, and hundreds of angles, with incredible precisionand in many cases, a 3D printing machine can do it far more quickly than other methods, as well.
Eco-Friendly Options
WheŶ sustaiŶaďility is a faĐtoƌ, theƌe’s Ŷo ďetteƌ ŵethod ofproduct prototypingthan fused deposition modeling, which allows you to select a polyester plastic that is not only a biodegradable thermoplastic, but one that is also derived from ƌeŶeǁaďle ƌesouƌĐes. It Đoŵes iŶ eǀeƌy Đoloƌ of the ƌaiŶďoǁ, aŶd you doŶ’t haǀe to ǁoƌƌy aďout pƌeĐious Ŷatuƌal resources being wasted in the creation of your prototype.
The Ability to Create Reusable Models
3D scanning gives you the ability to create reusable models that you can upload to CAD software, then print out in a ǀaƌiety of ŵateƌials that aƌe peƌfeĐt foƌ testiŶg aŶd ŵodeliŶg. What’s ŵoƌe,in many cases, you can even use those models as molds for future products. As an example, you could print a complex geometric shape in PLA plastic for the visual and to see how it fits your design, then use that shape to mold the final prototype, which could be made from another type of plastic or metal.
As you can see, 3D printing is by far the best and most sophisticated way to go about product prototyping. It gives you flexibility that traditional manufacturing scenarios cannot, and it inevitably creates more precise prototypes that are functional, affordable, and even reusable.
