Rapid Prototyping Throughout Your Product Development Cycle
3D printing is the preferred technology for the creation of prototypes. What was once a method reserved for organizations with large R&D budgets has now become available to small and medium enterprises through us. Our team is eager to support your organization’s rapid prototyping efforts from concept all the way through validation. You are probably asking, “Which 3D Printing technologies are best-suited for my process?“. Well, here’s some insight into that. Giving product designs a faster time to market, concept modeling favors full color, low-cost part production, to streamline communication from the drawing board to the boardroom. The ColorJet series of printers from 3D Systems provide these features so your design team can focus on what they do best, rapidly ideating new products to satisfy your customers.
In the design verification phase, 3D printing validates your designs through the integration of high-performance plastics with incredible precision and accuracy. Featuring industry-leading part detail and edge crispness, you will also access parts faster with part nesting and batch post-processing; all with the intent to minimize your costs and improve your timelines. Technologies best-suited to this phase commonly include multi-jet printing and stereolithography. The materials in this category will simulate the physical characteristics of many common thermoplastics, perfect for prototyping.
As any product development organization knows, the validation phase is absolutely critical for quality assurance. Design changes at this point in the development cycle are costly, fortunately, with 3d printing, there are a variety of resources to help expedite this phase without the typical investment in tooling. With a focus on material diversity, build size, speed and of course accuracy, we have the machines necessary to prototype and test the functional aspects of your designs. Stereolithography, Selective Laser Sintering and Direct Metal Printing are ready to provide you with functional materials, ensuring your team has put it’s best foot forward to enter into production.
