Have you watched the Disney movie “Meet The Robinsons”? Did you know that the main character there, Lewis, has made tons of prototypes of automotive like flying cars and his very first invention where you can relive your memory? Did you ever want to be like him? Or are you like him, full of ideas but cannot turn it into reality? Well, 3D printing rapid prototyping services are here and it will help you!
Researches, inventions, and sample products need to be tested. For individuals dreaming to become an inventor or for startups that want to get their product out there, it is important to turn that sketches and papers into tangible 3D products. However, it can get very pricey looking for materials to use. It can also take a lot of time to do it. But with the help of rapid prototyping through 3D printing, you can achieve both.
Rapid prototyping is the process of making a scale model as quickly as possible through different techniques. One of the commonly used techniques is 3D printing with the help of computer-aided design or CAD. Whether your company is a startup or an established one, rapid prototyping services will come in handy and can be used as long as you will release a new product or material.
But in this post, we are going to focus on how rapid prototyping 3D printing can help individuals and startups make their designs and blueprints into real, tangible 3D products.
First of all, rapid prototyping is very important because, without it, testing of products will be non-existent. Second, it is more effective to present your product than presenting a blueprint or design inside your computer especially when you are novice student/scientist or inventor wanting to change the world through your product. People, specifically investors will believe and have more faith in your idea once they see and know what your product is supposed to be and look like.
Though prototyping is also used for making a quality part for a bigger product, which is for another blog post, it has three main functions: fit checks, validation, and function tests.
Fit checks are for knowing if your design or product does fit with other materials that you are using. With 3D printing prototyping, it is easier to change certain parts and its sizes to fit your product perfectly.
With validation, you will know if your product is indeed useful or important. You can also measure people reactions when you present them your product rather than the mere idea of it. It can also prove to the non-believers of what it can really do. Moreover, this is where you can get investors and consumers to see what you’ve made.
Lastly, the tests, this is where you have to check the overall quality of your product; whether they can pass the test of flexibility, the environment, and many other different conditions. This is also where you’ll know if you have to retry making everything again or if you have become successful.
If you want easy, quick and cost-effective rapid prototyping, you should definitely go with 3D printing services! Here in the Philippines, there is only one company that offers end-to-end service and that is us, 3D2GO! Contact us now!
