Prototyping a product can be costly and slow, but using 3D prototyping, or rapid prototyping, you can iterate efficiently.
Rapid prototyping, also known as 3D prototyping, is not only limited to 3D printing. It actually refers to a process of iterating through a design by quickly manufacturing physical prototypes and making small changes at each step to improve it.
Traditional prototyping techniques like injection molding require weeks or even months to manufacture each iteration. And that’s not to mention the extra expense compared to other methods like 3D printing or laser cutting. Thanks to digital fabrication technologies, we’re now able to do rapid prototyping relatively quickly using a variety of materials with differing properties, such as cheap PLA, impact-resistant ABS, durable nylon, and more. But rapid prototyping can be carried out using multiple distinct […]
