Technologies across the globe are rapidly developing. Every concept has now a new device for it, telephones are now developed into android phones, and many other developments took place which made our life much easier. Similarly, the rapid prototyping are making our lives easier too. They help us to understand the need of the customers.
What is it?
If we break the terms, ‘rapid’ means something which is done quickly, and ‘prototyping’ means a copy of a model or a product.They are the strategy, which helps the producers to understand how the customer will react to the product. It is a set of various techniques that work to fabricate the physical product.
It utilizes the three-dimensional computer-aided design (CAD) data, a scale model of a physical item or assembly can be swiftly constructed using a variety of processes known as rapid prototyping.
In most cases, “additive layer manufacturing” or 3D printing technology is used to construct the item or assembly.
How does it help?
Rapid prototyping helps in the following ways-
Cheap/ less costly
It is comparatively very cheap for the services they provide. The cost of prototyping can start from $100 to $1000. But the work it does in such a limited time is nothing compared to its price
It is one of the reasons why prototypes are as famous as they don’t take much of your time.
They let you understand what the customers will value, which allows you to save a lot of time.
