Because It’s Never ‘Just’ a Prototype
Prototypes are essential in every step of the product development process. Whether it is to verify your design with a model that matches the real thing, or to perform form, fit and function tests, you’ll want prototypes that meet your requirements.
Rapid Prototyping allows designers and engineers to execute fast and frequent revisions of their designs. Thanks to a variety of available technologies and materials, in plastics as well as metals, 3D-printed prototypes work for both visual and functional testing.
