Create 3D printed prototypes in-house for cheaper design iterations produced in hours and days, rather than weeks and months.
From 3D design file to 3D printed part, prototyping design iterations is faster and easier as part of a seamless digital workflow.
Full-scale 3D-printed prototypes allow for more precise and better informed feedback regarding part fit, function, aesthetics, and more.
GO TO MARKET FASTER
Accelerate time to market with 3D printed prototypes produced in a fraction of the time required for traditional methods.
Across a wide range of industries, full-scale prototypes are an absolute necessity throughout the design process to evaluate and iterate versions of a product before moving to production. The design iteration enables product designers to test a wide range of parameters like scale, feel, aesthetics, and performance, to improve the quality of their designs.
For many production processes, however, the lead time to produce such prototypes can be weeks or even months and require costly materials and expensive skilled labor. 3D printing has revolutionized design prototyping, particularly for industrial production, so that iteration cycles can occur in just a fraction of the time typically required, while also saving big on material and labor costs.
BigRep machines are a perfect solution to produce full-scale, large protytpes for a vast range of products. BigRep customers using 3D printing for design prototyping span industries ranging from cycling, medical, furniture, automotive, maritime, aerospace, and more.
Canyon Bicycles use 3D printed prototypes for faster, cheaper design iterations to produce lightweight, efficient racing bikes.
Villeroy & Boch 3D prints full-scale bathtub prototypes, exactly matching the designer’s specifications, to evaluate and improve product designs. Additionally, they post-process their prototypes by filling, sanding, and coating the surfaces so their top decision-makers can fully assess new products.
