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.
Rapid prototyping helps for a multitude of uses like functional testing, tooling, moulds, visualization and as a proof of concept.Rapid prototyping can be used to test the efficiency of a part or product design before it is manufactured in larger quantities. i-CUBE Engineering Technologies specialize in the production of high-quality, low cost rapid prototypes.
Rapid Prototyping key Advantages:
§ Realizing the design concepts
§ Customizing design
§ Decreased development time
§ Reduce costly mistakes
§ Increase effective communications
§ Decrease product lifetime before obsolescence
§ Minimize sustaining engineering change
