Typically, 3D prototyping is limited to certain materials, and you may not be able to create an exact model due to these limitations. Another common issue facing manufacturing and prototyping companies is the inability to find software that works with the materials they want to use in the model or concept phase.
3D Prototyping, an Australian company, recently announced an exciting new change in this field that will allow companies to create more accurate prototypes, across a variety of different materials. One such material that this company’s applications will work on is ABS, which is prized for its ability to create a model that can chromed, painted or even vacuum metalized.
In addition to ABS, 3D Prototyping also offers printers that will work with varieties of Nylon, including Nylon 66 and Glass Filled Nylon. This means that you can create fully functional, flexible and highly detailed models that are exact replicas, without having to compromise.
Companies now have the ability to create a rapid prototype, on a material that offers a variety of options for producing a finished model. The new printers from 3D Prototyping also offer the ability to create models with a variety of different features such as raised text, 3D color, mapping and annotations and detailed labels and maps.
In addition to their comprehensive line of printers, 3D Prototyping has also developed specialized 3D scanners that allow you to quickly and easily convert an existing CAD design into model form. You can also utilize these scanners to help you spot potential trouble spots, edit them on the fly, and then continue with the production of your model.
Thanks to 3D Prototyping’s advances, companies now have a choice when it comes to making high quality, realistic models that can be used immediately, without compromising on detail, design or functionality.
