To quicken the product development and to have a hands-on experience of the product before the actual production, we produce a sample Plastic Prototype by sending the CAD file to our ABS 3D Plastic Printer with a Build volume of 300 x 300 x 450 mm. It helps in the visualisation and verification of the component.
Advantages of 3D Plastic Printing
Small Prototype Tooling
Making a Model of small Prototype mock-up is required to validate and convert the idea into a real product. By using this technique, we resolve the technical risks of the development with regards to performance, compatibility of the component and as result we achieve the following :
- The customer’s 3D model quickly modified into Casting 3D Model and then to Pattern 3D model.
- Pattern 3D model directly sent to 3D printer with Gating and Feeding design for printing.
- Tooling is ready for pilot batch.
The 3D Printed ABS models facilitate the customer to experience the Touch, Feel and Fit of the component and to check all minute details. The 3D miniature also benefits for marketing purpose and to share the expected results between manufacturing teams.
By Conducting the Advanced Product Quality Planning session with the help of the 3D Plastic printed Miniature we are benefited by the shorter development time.
