There was a time when 3D printing itself was considered improbable. Now, it is widely used in almost every industry the world over. When you see it being utilized in complex industries such as automotive, aerospace, and medicine, it is perceptible that it has a place in every field there is.

But in a supposedly simple industry as product packaging design, you’d be surprised that people used to raise doubts over the value of 3D technology. This is due to the simple reason that 3D printing is not part in any way of the conventional printing and packaging process. But as we have seen over the years, 3D printing has drastically changed and has been changing the way things are done.

Ensuring More Streamlined Processes

Operational methods and processes have become more streamlined, resulting in the creation of higher quality products. This holds true even in packaging design. In a congested market, innovation is truly the key. If you can’t keep up with the changing times, there’s a good chance progress would take a backseat.

Fortunately for local businesses, 3D printing services in the Philippines has been made available by companies like 3D2Go, which is actually leading the charge in 3D printing. We offer a prototype 3D modeling service to accelerate the entire prototyping process. Our team of experienced professionals can help you design different molds in order to create the prototype more quickly, efficiently, and economically.

From making a 3D blueprint to product creation, the process can only take days. For this one, we utilize a technique called Fused Deposition Modeling. Here, your business saves money when manufacturing limited number of parts — as opposed to standard plastic processing methods like thermoforming, injection molding, and blow molding — which all pose harm to the environment.

Great for Visualization, Testing, and Quality Assurance

Our FDM 3D printing service allows you to have access to a simplistic prototype of the end product as you conceptualize and create the packaging prototype. This is to assure the integrity of the structural design along with the perfect packaging fit. Without 3D printing, your product may go through numerous iterations, which translates to extended time and bigger expenditures.

That being said, structural design for packaging starts early in the product development phase. The objective is to make sure marketing and promotional efforts coincide with product release. Of course, you want to ensure that product development and packaging design do not overlap. The benefits are better felt for products that have complex packaging. Having a reference enables you to come up with a top-quality final packaging that gives your company a step ahead of the competition.

Ultimately, we transform the way your business operates so you become or stay competitive. Precision is everything in the packaging design industry, and that is what you are going to get from our experts. We help you anticipate packaging requirements so you can plan on the appropriate costing and other important matters.
