With our 3D scanning and 3D printing services, we can deliver rapid prototyping solutions for you. The following sections outline some phases.
Product Design Phase (Computer modeling from scratch or 3D scanning)
During this phase we assess your requirements to determine if we are best to design your model from scratch using 3D CAD tools, 3D animations tools, or perform a 3D scan an mock up model.
While 3D scanning sounds like an easy option, it is not perfect, and requires much cleaning up of the model. Further it produces a file with point cloud data, which then must be converted to a typical CAD file (e.g. .igs, .stp, and/or .stl). It is because of these reasons, it is generally quicker to create the design from scratch (unless the target requirement is just to reprint the scanned object without any additional design features).
Product Prototyping Phase
During this phase, we print medium-precision revsisions of the design, until designer and customer is happen it means the target requirements.
This is achieved via using a series of cheap Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printers, that ensure redundancy and allow very fast turn around times.
Product Demostration/Promotional Phase
During this phase, we print a high-precision smooth detailed final version suitable for production demostration and/or production promotion.
This phase requires the use of a Stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer, which has a very slow turn around time.
