How to Elevate Design and Prototyping with 3D Printing

In this white paper learn how highly realistic 3D printed modeling benefits Consumer Product Design, Health Care and Education.

Designers, educators and the medical community arguably share a common desire: to find better tools that help them solve their challenges in a more creative, nimble and cost-effective way.

Trends toward affordability and ease of use are bringing professional 3D printing technology in house for many designers and engineers. The growing expectation that a CAD drawing can become a real three-dimensional object in a matter of hours is altering how companies see the design process. It can be faster, more effective and less costly.

Additive manufacturing, widely known as 3D printing, can be one of those tools. It can make the impossible possible with the ability to manufacture complex parts not achievable with traditional processes. The additive process can create models, prototypes, tools and some finished products faster and with fewer constraints. Some 3D printing processes that include colour and multiple materials are capable of producing results with life-like realism.

Although a 3D printer won’t solve all of the world’s problems, the right 3D printer can radically change the design process, ultimately resulting in better products. It can bring about more effective medical tools. And it can foster new, insightful research.

In this white paper, you will learn how 3D printing with highly realistic models benefits consumer product design, medical outcomes and education, and one 3D printer that helps make it all happen.
