Rapid Prototyping Services by Shapeways
While traditional manufacturing methods limit how rapidly you can prototype, 3D printing ensures that you’ll get your prototypes faster.
Why 3D Printing?
Rapid prototyping with 3D printers allows for quick iterations of product designs to physically determine look, feel, fit, and functionality before going into full-scale manufacturing. Multiple materials and finishing options provide final product likeness.
Still immensely helpful in product development, rapid prototyping was the original reason for the invention of 3D printing—allowing designers to make as many changes as necessary during research and development.
Working on a project for a customer that has to be just right? Get models back fast, and 3D print new iterations, if needed, for final feedback and production.
