Optimise your design by using physical prototypes during the design process
Rapid Prototyping has become essential during the design process of a product. Along with computer visualisation tools, a tangible representation of your design allows you to fully explore the strong and weak points of your product. By seeing and touching a physical model, you will find it much easier to identify the areas of your product that require improvement. It might even inspire you to come up with new solutions.
I had no experience at all with preparing files for 3D printing. Materialise helped me all the way. What a relief! In fact, they took care of all the file adaptations while I could already concentrate on the next steps of my project. Moreover, Materialise made some valuable suggestions to improve the design.”
