Prove your design before going to Production

Get to market faster by printing your physical prototypes quickly in-house. You will be able to identify any product deficiencies and make improvements early in the design process when it’s least costly.

Producing functional prototypes typically takes from a few hours to overnight. It will allow you to catch flaws before they become costly engineering changes. It also reduces time-to-market and maximizes product performance.

About the Applications

Typical Usage

  • Fit, Form and Function Testing
  • Living Hinges
  • Simulating Overmolding
  • Tactile Testing
  • Shock Testing
  • Wind Tunnel Testing
  • Medical Procedure Testing

3D Printing Benefits

  • Physical testing with engineering thermoplastics or digital materials reveals how your next product will perform, well before you commit to production tooling.
  • With a wide variety of materials available you can easily create a test version of your final part so testing of the actual look and feel can achieved.
