The Significance of Functional Prototyping

Functional prototyping with engineering thermoplastics or digital materials reveals how your next product will perform, well before you commit to production tooling. This technique gives you the opportunity to create, test, and refine the design of a product early in the design process when it’s least costly.

Benefits of 3D Printing Functional Prototyping

Test Working Prototypes

Test performance of working prototypes during the development stage faster and cost-effectively than traditional methods. Doing this will allow companies to see the overall look and feel of a product and gain valuable user feedback before it even hits the market.
