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 […]

Part 2. Better collaboration resulting in improved design and manufacturability. The ability to quickly produce real working prototypes that teams can see and touch helps bridge the gap between the virtual CAD design and the final product. Design and manufacturing engineers can use these prototypes as a tool to better communicate how a design looks, feels, and operates. This allows designers to better integrate their product designs with manufacturing at an earlier stage in the development lifecycle. Brian McLaughlin from […]
