Rapid prototyping is a group of techniques used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part or assembly using three-dimensional computer-aided design (CAD) data. Construction of the part or assembly is usually done using 3D printing or additive manufacturing technology.
Rapid prototyping creates the opportunity to initiate a trial and error process for products. Rapid prototyping also saves time and money by making it possible to find problems and adjust accordingly early in the design phase. The process of rapid prototyping gives you the ability to know exactly how your product will perform and look before moving forward. Our rapid prototyping process accurately finishes and assembles components to achieve the most realistic representation possible.
3D Printing Processes Utilized for Rapid Prototyping Include:
Direct Metal Printing (DMP)
MultiJet Printing (MJP)
ColorJet Printing (CJP)
BasTech also employs many other processes to create spot-on prototypes for our customers.
