3D printing is a rapid prototyping technique which does not rely on drilling or cutting materials to create a product. In this process, a three dimensional solid object is made from a digital model by laying down successive layers of the material. 3D printing also known as 'additive manufacturing' has been welcomed by product designers and manufacturers across the globe, due to many reasons apart from being cost-effective.
3D printing rapid prototyping technology helps you take well-informed decisions about product designing. One doesn't need a functional mechanical prototype before manufacturing the actual product, which helps in reducing the rapid prototyping cost significantly.
3D printing is lifelike, and is the closest draft of the concept designers have in their minds. Rapid prototyping process helps in saving cost under various circumstances, like:
As discussed earlier, 3D printing gives a near-perfect idea of an actual product before manufacturing or creating its prototype. However, there are some areas for concern:
It is always better to keep in mind the above points before making a final decision on whether to keep 3D model or prototype as the final product. Sometimes you just need a 3D model or a product's prototype to say yes for manufacturing, while in other scenarios both may be required. 3D printing and rapid prototyping companies check product description in detail before deriving at a conclusion.
You can outsource 3D printing as a stand-alone process, or as rapid prototyping which includes 3D printing as a development stage. Going for 3D printing as an independent process and then later prototyping it proves to be more costly than going for complete prototyping process which includes 3D or 2D design, and saves time and help you gain process excellence.
