Scaling to Production in Rapid Prototyping This is the final segment in our Rapid Prototyping series and here we will talk about scaling to production. When creating a new product, there are often two sets of designs: One set is for 3D printing prototypes while the other is for producing the part. However, most designers only think in terms of the latter. “When you’re developing a product, at each moment of the design, it is a final part,” said Gabriel Boutin, CEO of Syncro Innovation, an industrial design firm in Quebec, Canada, and the founder of Kupol, a new company [...]

Last week we discussed the “value of functional prototypes” in rapid prototyping and today we are going to continue with a discussion about the color capabilities of the HP Jet Fusion technology. Color Capabilities of HP Jet Fusion Technology There are many ways to improve the value of a prototype, but one that is often overlooked is the addition of color. With the HP Jet Fusion 580/380 Color 3D Printers, it is now possible to print fully functional, color 3D parts. Adding color to prototypes is one way to test final part colors, but there are other ways to use [...]
The value of functional prototypes Picking up where we left off on our article about “How HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing customers shorten their time to market” today we will discuss the value of functional prototypes. In addition to print speed, the material properties of parts from HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solutions are ideal for prototyping and enable customers to make decisions about their final parts. HP Multi Jet Fusion technology allows for the creation of highly isotropic parts, or parts that have similar properties when measured in the X, Y, and Z dimensions. “Isotropy is important so that [...]
Rapid Prototyping In the mad rush to get a new product to market, every hour counts, and as time passes, competition waxes while customers wane. In recent years, technological advances have dramatically accelerated the traditional product manufacturing lifecycle. Innovations in advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, and digitization are enabling companies to get new products to market faster than ever before. To keep up with increasing speed to market and shorter product lifecycles, many companies are turning to 3D printing to stay ahead of the competition. While 3D printing has long been used as a prototyping tool, new advancements have helped increase [...]
