Rapid Prototyping

« Back to Glossary Index

Rapid prototyping is a service performed in the manufacturing industry that involves the creation of a physical model or prototype of a product using computer-aided design (CAD) software and 3D printing technology. This process allows manufacturers to quickly and cost-effectively test and refine their product designs before moving on to full-scale production. It can be used for a wide range of products, from consumer goods to industrial machinery, and can help manufacturers identify and address design flaws, improve functionality, and reduce production costs.

The rapid prototyping process typically begins with the creation of a 3D CAD model of the product. This model is then sent to a 3D printer, which uses a variety of materials, including plastics, metals, and ceramics, to create a physical prototype of the product. The prototype can then be tested and evaluated for its functionality, durability, and overall design. Any necessary changes can be made to the CAD model, and a new prototype can be printed until the final design is approved for production.
