Integrating Functional Design into 3D Printing for Prototypes - Part 2

 The more cost effective the prototyping process is, the more and easier it can be to implement it into the design process. 3D printing will become a crucial factor in increasing the rate of innovation, and those companies that master the use pre-assembly for prototyping will have a clear advantage.

Integrating Functional Design into 3D Printing for Prototypes

Functional design is a simple concept that has large implications when combined with 3D printing. The goal is to simply design modularly so that each individual component serves a specific, individual function. It is very similar to many agile practices that are used in programming and management to ensure that all development goals are in small manageable pieces with potential to test and receive feedback quickly.

6 Materials in 3D Printing To Consider For Your Next 3D Model

3D printing has become a large and fast growing industry. Meanwhile, there is a wide range of materials to choose from. How are you supposed to know which one to pick?

Depending on the purpose of your 3D print (for example showcasing a prototype, a building, or a functional product), different materials have different advantages. The choice of the right material can have a rather large impact on the final outcome. One of the most important things to consider as an engineer, a product designer or an architect, is which stage of the development lifecycle your project is currently in.

3 Facts About 3D Models You Should Be Aware Of

Igloo.pngHave you ever ordered a 3D model online and were disappointed with the result when it finally arrived? You're not alone. And yes, it can depend on your selected material and printing service, but most times the errors occur even earlier - while creating your 3D file.
Today, we're going to look at the top three facts designers tend to overlook when modeling in 3D.
