3D printing in Product Design

Design. Refine. Repeat.
All without extra expense

By 3D printing functional prototypes, product designers can get feedback in the early design stages. This makes product development far more efficient. And designers have more time to do what they love – design.

  • Concept models
  • Functional testing
  • Custom parts
  • Limited production runs
