Rapid prototype is a model, is a test piece, but only small batch production, really mass production, or use the mold, but the mold cost is more expensive, if not to confirm the product usability of all aspects of the mold manufacturing, in case of error, loss is not small.
Any customer who has done rapid prototyping in a rapid prototyping factory knows that 3D design are required for rapid prototyping. Do you know why 3D design are required?2D plane drawings or product molds are not acceptable.
Because 3 d figure is also called 3 d stereogram, it can through the visual imaging system of the superposition and separation of the eye, see the hidden image of figure, standard factory will be 3 d images more clearly, to understand customers do hand-board model size, internal structure complexity and product appearance, judge a rapid prototype model production time, can accurate, fast to the customer quotation and delivery date.At the same time, whether it is CNC processing, SLA laser rapid prototyping processing or 3D printing processing, 3D design are required for programming, and then according to the functions of your products to choose the corresponding materials.
I don’t even have 2d drawings. I only have real objects. Can I make prototypes?The answer is yes, you just need to send us the physical goods, we can copy the number, and design the 3d drawings, but you need to charge extra fees.
In a word, if you want to make a rapid prototype, you need to provide 3D design in STL, IGES, STEP and other formats. If you want to make a complicated panel, that is, there are many parts, you’d better make a list, and indicate the material and processing technology on it, which will greatly improve the work efficiency.
