    Types of Rapid Prototype

    The rapid prototyping process is far-reaching, encompassing several materials, technologies, and industries. There are four different types of rapid prototypes.
    concept-model.jpg
    display-prototype.jpg
    functional-mold.jpg
    pre-production-prototype.jpg

    Concept Model

    This is one of the simplest types of prototypes. Also called a proof-of-concept prototype, engineers use the concept model to convey the basic idea of the design. Before use, this type of prototype undergoes multiple changes.

    Display Prototype

    Engineers develop this type of prototype to make it look similar to the final product. Most times, functionality is not a factor considered under the display prototype as the focus is mainly on appearance.

    Functional Prototype

    This prototype focuses on functionality and aims to enable engineers and designers to test the product to make modifications if any, for optimal functionality. The prototype developed here should behave the same way as the final product.

    Pre-Production Prototype

    This is the last type of prototype developed before production. There are two major purposes of this type of prototype. First, to validate the process chosen by the manufacturer for mass production, and second, to ensure the manufactured part functions optimally.

    Our Rapid Prototyping for Various Industrial Applications

    1. When Do I Need Rapid Prototypes?
    There are a couple of scenarios where rapid prototypes become a need. The first is when the cost of product development becomes too high. Rapid prototyping cost is lower than conventional prototyping, reducing product development costs. Rapid prototypes are also needed when you need to identify and evaluate product hazards as well as test functionality.
    At RapidDirect, the fast lead time for rapid prototyping is 5 working days. This is especially true when you use reputable brands that offer rapid prototyping online services for your needs.
    Rapid prototyping and 3D printing are completely different from each other. 3D printing is a technology that uses additive manufacturing to develop products. On the other hand, rapid prototyping is an umbrella term for a group of techniques used for the manufacturing of product parts from a 3D CAD model.
