By evolving better early design practices, with a versatile toolbox of low budget prototyping methods for example, you can:
- Cut manufacturing costs
- Iterate stronger, more creative product designs
- Eliminate concept revisions at the manufacturing stage
Designing and printing 3D prototypes may seem daunting (and time-consuming), at first, but there are some shortcuts that you can use to your advantage.
Learn how to prepare 3D models for printing, the difference between SLA and FDM printers, how to adjust prototypes on the fly, and how to gain a competitive advantage by introducing rapid prototyping using direct modeling to your process.
In this tutorial, industrial design professor Claas Kuhnen takes you through the A-Z of creating printed prototypes on a budget (and within a deadline).
