Functional prototyping and concept modeling give design and engineering teams the ability to view and test products in real-world environments. A finished 3D printed concept model helps communicate ideas that transform digital CAD files on a screen into final products for user testing, design verification, or product design iterations. 3D printed concept models help bridge the gap between Quickparts rapid prototyping of simple designs and final production design. Concept models allow ideas to be communicated to broader teams for approval, design revisions, or marketing purposes.
Functional prototyping and concept modeling speed product development lifecycles, allowing iterative proof-of-concept testing and helping test design features and functionality early in the design process. Many times, functional prototypes require multiple manufacturing technologies in order to create the desired final product. With our full suite of services, we are able to combine 3D printing prototyping with conventional CNC machining and low-volume injection molding to meet the needs of virtually every design team.
