Top 3 Considerations Before Prototyping

With fast production and broadened design possibilities, 3D printing has become a go to for rapid prototyping. Engineers and designers looking to take advantage of 3D printing for prototyping should consider these key considerations before getting started.
1. The End Product At the forefront of the decisions made for rapid prototyping should be your product’s application. If your prototype needs to replicate the final product’s cosmetic looks, you may turn to a technology and material that provides a finer resolution, or you may need the prototype to be post-processed for aesthetics. If you need your prototype to simply function exactly as the end-product will; that is where technologies that offer robust materials and ideal tolerances come into play.

2. 3D Printing Technology At Objective3D Direct Manufacturing we offer four 3D printing processes, each with their own unique build styles, design limitations and material properties. Depending on which method you use will determine speci…
