Stop wasting time, start your rapid prototyping process now

Prototypes are an essential step of your product development. Before a more costly step of production, you need to evaluate the design and functionality of your product. A good rapid prototyping technique is just what you need! Rapid prototyping allows engineers and designers to manufacture and test their products faster, and iterate as much as needed. Either to create a scale model of a physical part to validate the shape or its visual aspect, to try out an assembly, or to build functional parts and test them, rapid prototyping will help you achieve your goals in time. Some game-changing technologies such as additive manufacturing are out there, allowing you to create your concept models and functional prototypes with a great surface finish.

Additive manufacturing can boost your company, not only thanks to rapid prototyping. Discover how you could benefit from a more scalable, flexible, and resilient manufacturing process for both prototyping and production.

3D printing prototypes

3D printing prototypes: what are the advantages? Discover how 3D printing can help you develop advanced prototypes thanks to a large variety of materials.

What are the advantages of rapid prototyping?

Rapid prototyping reduces design and time development, which obviously leads to a reduction of the product development cost. This is also offering more room for iteration and testing. Rapid prototyping has a beneficial impact on your overall manufacturing process. 

    Is rapid prototyping the same as 3D printing?

    Rapid prototyping is allowed by manufacturing techniques such as 3D printing. Rapid prototyping is the technique to create a prototype model from a 3D model. We can say that additive manufacturing is the process, and rapid prototyping is the end result.

    Where is rapid prototyping used?

    Rapid prototyping can be used by everyone, and by every kind of industry. Moreover, rapid prototyping can be used at any stage of the product development cycle for any product.
