5. Seeing is believing
Design is both an art and a science that starts with the imagination. 3D printing helps quickly transform something imagined into something that can be seen and touched. Prototypes are often used to help sell new concepts, so the more realistic the prototype, the better.
‘With the Objet Connex500 multi-material 3D printer, we don’t have to rely on imagination to convey how an over-molded part will actually look, feel and operate.’ – Dan Mishek, Co-owner of Vista Technologies.
“No matter how good our 3D graphics are, there is nothing like a model in your hands…” – Henry K. Kawamoto, M.D., D.D.s, UCLA Medical Center.
“You can show someone something on paper all day long, but when you give them a real part that they can touch, they really get excited” –Shawn Greene, Fender Musical Instruments.
