Take a glimpse into the future by turning an idea into a one-off finished product within hours or days.
There is no better way to evaluate the metrics of a new design than to bring it to life as a physical model. Low cost and quick to produce, concept models look and feel like the final product, which means they’re great for presenting new ideas to key stakeholders. Engineers & designers from businesses around the globe have harnessed the power of concept modeling with 3D printing, as it’s especially effective for focus groups, pre-launch marketing, training models, and trade shows.
Concept modeling enables your focus groups to see, hold, and examine your product from every angle and assess design. With a realistic model on hand, you can gain real world feedback and refine your product before it hits the market. Plus, marketers can get an early jump on creating marketing collateral.
Stratasys FDM technology allows you to incorporate multiple materials into one automated build to create models that look and feel like the finished product, with fine details, smooth surfaces, rigid housings, soft-touch buttons, lettering, rubberlike seals, and even clear components.
Interacting with your new part as a physical prototype provides real world feedback, allowing you to quickly assess areas for improvement and areas of success. Determine how to produce your design before you invest in expensive tooling.
