How Could Plastic Rapid Prototyping Help in Product Development?

by Hydrovern Heroes The Hydrovern Heroes
Summary: If you are working on a product then you should get its prototype built for studying the design before it is approved for final production.

Before you take your upcoming product to the designing stage, you should look at every aspect of the design with plastic rapid prototyping. Create a physical 3D form to get a clear idea about the new product. It will help in further development of the product and reduce tooling time later on.

Making a prototype is a wise decision as it allows making small design changes that you can notice in the 3D product design. Also, you can show the prototype to the potential investors to give them a fair idea about the product they would be interested in investing in.

Let’s check the benefits of a prototype

1. Detailed Designing for Development

Developing your design idea into a prototype will help refine the design up to the smallest level for better manufacturing and secondary process. With each sample created, the design can be changed to adjust thickness, increase radii, and improve other details with plastic injection moulding. And it will take only a few sample cycles to complete all testing and send the sample for tooling without excessive expense.

2. Save the Material

Conventional prototyping creates lots of waste material because the finished product is created by cutting and chipping the material. But there is no such hassle with rapid prototyping that saves the material from getting waste. Since the same CAD and printing equipment is used in creating different samples, there is no need for developing special tools for every new product.

3. Changes are Quick

It is the biggest benefit of plastic rapid prototyping. When you have a finished product available for testing, you can check its quality and mark the changes or improvements it needs. Also, you can get feedback from the engineers on how to further improve the product. When all the design stages are covered, you can send the product for final production.

4. Visualize Your Product

You will get a sample that you can project as a product and showcase it to all stakeholders including financers and buyers. You can ask all the viewers to give their opinion on the product so that you can send it for further development. And you won’t have any hassle in accepting the suggestions as you will know that prototyping will reduce the final cost of the product.

5. Understand the Product Better

Before you make an opinion on a product, you should have full confidence in it, and the only way to know everything about a product that is still an idea is to get a prototype of the product built. Get a replica of the product with plastic injection moulding and study its features to mark the changes it needs before it becomes a finished product.
