Precision for Rapid Prototyping MachinesAs a key component of the additive manufacturing process, rapid prototyping gives product manufacturers the edge they’ve been looking for: the ability to create prototype parts from 3D laser scanned models. Doing so provides an enhanced line of sight for detecting errors and misaligned product geometries. Using digital models also reduces waste and the need for special tooling.
The first prototypes can be 3D printed using the digital model — no need for time-consuming, expensive machining. The prototype can then be scanned to check for accuracy. With the ability to receive real-time feedback from clients, rapid prototyping continues to transform manufacturing across a host of industries.
