Prototyping serves to enable the passage from conception to manufacturing, or in other words, mass production.
At Heratec, it is possible to fast track fabrication of a high-precision prototype following 3D computer-aided design (CAD). Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is a technique that enables ˝quick and easy˝ prototype fabrication, particularly beneficial for projects that could not have been realised using traditional methods. A prototype is generally used to give a physical form to a concept before it is sold, improving its design before end production, testing its viability.
The 3D printing technique boast a number of advantages :
- Creation of complex designs: giving almost total freedom of form, even the most complex shapes.
- Mass production: several items can be produced at the same time.
- Economical and quick: no need for costly tools or structures.
An interesting alternative to bring a project to fruition!
