Rapid Prototyping Services: 3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. 3D printing is considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling. To maintain competitiveness in the market we run our 3D Printer with Black ABS in 0.006in layers, depending of the 3D CAD file deviation. Acetone bath for surface treatment is available upon request. The prototyping technology is used for manufacturing in jewelry, footwear, industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction, automotive, aerospace, dental, medical industries, education, civil engineering, and other fields. When to Use CAD Models Vs. Prototypes When should modeling versus prototyping be used? The key difference is the value of the information obtained. Ultimately, the final product must be created. The prototype or model is used strictly to improve the final product. Costs associated with the prototype or model will be amortized over the number of unit s built. The major problem with models is the lack of confidence in the results. Sophisticated models are too complex for any single engineer to analyze. In fact, most models are now sold as proprietary software packages. The actual algorithms, precision, and some iterations are rarely provided. The only way to validate the algorithm (not the model). Design, Modeling, and Prototyping by repeated use and comparison to actual prototypes. It is easier to have confidence in prototypes. Actual parts can be measured and tested repeatedly, and the components and processes can be examined. Prototypes are used more often than model s once the complexity of the device exceeds the ability of the computer to accurately reflect the part or process. During the initial design phases, models must be used because a prototype is meaningless until a concept has been more firmly defined. At the other extreme, modeling is of limited benefit to the factory until the configuration of the part is well known. A general rule is to build a model, then a prototype, then a production unit. Create even a simple mathematical model if possible so that the physics can be better understood. If the prototype is to be skipped, confidence in the model must be extremely high. If there is little confidence in the model, then a minimum of two or three prototype iterations will have to be done.
