From digital to physical part

3D printing allows you to prove out your concept ideas by printing your 3D design as a one-off finished product in as little as a few hours.

Shifting from the 3D digital world to a physical part will accelerate your product development process and lower cost. A 3D printed part is more effective at communicating the design, so you can make better decisions faster.

3D Print your Concept Models

  • Using a 3D printer you can easily create models that look and feel like your finished products.
  • With PolyJet printers you can create parts with fine details, smooth surfaces, rigid housings, soft-touch buttons, lettering, rubber-like seals and even clear components.
  • With Stratasys fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printers you can also create robust concept models that can be drilled, sanded or painted.

Multi-colour & Multi-material concepts

Synergy specializes in creating innovative designs for consumer products. Consumer product design and development is extremely competitive and it is essential to give the customer the most realistic concept model possible.

Benefits

Go from CAD to Physical Part in a matter of hours

Concept model 3D Printed

For small firms

Concept modeling lets small design and engineering firms extend their reach by testing out more ideas and developing only the right projects.

For large companies

For large companies, concept modeling within departments — or even in individual cubicles — is a way to hone ideas before presenting them to superiors. 3D printed concept models are valuable communication tools, conveying ideas to colleagues, clients and marketers in a way that a computer model never could.

Production concepts

Stratasys FDM Technology provides affordable, durable concept models in production-grade thermoplastics. Office–friendly FDM 3D Printers turn out small models in hours and large models in days. FDM concept models can be drilled, sanded or painted if desired.

Aesthetic concepts

Stratasys PolyJet 3D printing technology produces the most realistic models of any 3D printing process. You can incorporate multiple materials into one automated build to create models that look and feel like finished products, with fine details, smooth surfaces, rigid housings, soft-touch buttons, lettering, rubberlike seals and even clear components.

Sales Marketing Concept

Sales & Marketing

Create a physical mock-up of your product in hours, for use with a focus group or as a pre–launch model of a new product to help kick start sales. They can see it, hold it and examine it from every angle.

3D Printing Benefits
  • Create models before they are manufactured to help sell the idea.
  • Use for demonstrations and trade shows or as samples for clients.
  • Create different textures on your models.
Ergonomic Concept

Ergonomic Studies

Meet your ergonomic testing needs with a 3D printing model. Stratasys printers have multiple materials to choose from, and digital materials offering a wide variety of physical properties.

3D Printing Benefits
  • Create rigid and soft feel products.
  • Create different textures on your models.
  • The ability to create 1:1 scale models for accurate ergonomic studies.
Architectural Concept

Architectural Design

3D printing architectural models provides the opportunity to reduce the number of steps, improving design time, while retaining fine details of the final architecture plan.

3D Printing Benefits
  • Create models faster without the labour required with traditional models.
  • Create modular parts so that design changes can be easily applied.
  • Models are stronger and stable over time, eliminating distortion.
