Importance of Prototyping
The most important advantage of a prototype is that it simulates the real and future product. It can help attract customers to invest in the product before allocating any resources needed for implementation. You can test the design’s correctness before it comes into production and you can discover design errors.
Prototyping is an important initial stage in the process of mass production. A prototype is a draft version of a product that allows you to explore your ideas and show the intention behind a feature or the overall design concept to users before investing time and money into development.
Rapid prototyping provides engineer, design and development teams the ability to explore and realize concepts more quickly. This efficiency in time and cost allows teams to move beyond the mere visualization of a product, making it easier to grasp the properties and design of a product.
3D printing technology plays an important role in rapid prototyping. It allows the producer to make precise prototype which is used to test the ideas quickly and improve on them in an equally timely fashion. Once the prototype is tested and approved, production of the prototype begins.
Here, we 3D printed the prototype of a cylindrical pot, which turned out perfectly. For the further production of the prototype a silicone mould was prepared, which can now be used for mass production of the prototype using any suitable material like Cement, Resin, Plastic, Concrete etc.
