Why opt for additive manufacturing in the process of prototyping?
- A significant advantage over other technologies is that no tooling costs are incurred.
- Depending on the technology, a quality of between 25 and 300 µ can be achieved.
- Depending on the technology, we can provide you with materials specifically developed for prototyping.
- Learn more about the sizes of models to be printed and the overall dimensions of our desktop printers here.
We are capable of
- FDM printing your finished model by applying filament winding technology using an Ultimaker S5 desktop 3D printer.
- SLA (stereolithography or resin) printing your finished model using a Formlabs Form 3 printer.
- CFC, fibre-reinforced, continuous carbon fibre, Kevlar, fibreglass and heat-resistant fibreglass-reinforced technologies using a Markforged Mark Two printer.
The primary purpose of printing prototypes is to see what the designed shape will look like in real life and whether it matches the technical drawings. In such cases, functionality is less important, rendering production costs more affordable.
