3D printing or additive manufacturing goes beyond the capability of printing in the traditional sense of link on paper, allowing for 3D objects to be physically printed before your very eyes.
Rapid Prototyping :
• 3D Printing
Prototyping is the process of producing a physical model in order to test various aspects of a design such as look and feel, illustrate ideas / features, test function against the design intent to gather early feedback which helps in design validation and verification and hence is a valuable phase in New Product Development.
Rapid Prototyping is a process of automatic construction of physical objects from 3D CAD. It is also known as additive fabrication, three dimensional printing, solid free form fabrication, layered manufacturing and additive manufacturing.
Often one or more prototypes are made in a process of incremental development where each prototype is influenced by the performance of previous designs, in this way, problems or deficiencies in design can be corrected. When the prototype is sufficiently refined and meets the functionality, robustness, manufacturability and other design goals, the product is ready for production.
Companies are exploring the power of RP to :
• Validate form, fit & function
• Get a complete understanding of the part - look and feel
• Save costs during design iterations / tooling
• Produce visual models for market research, publicity, packaging etc.
• Get zip time to market
