Having a design epiphany puts a smile on your face. Whether you’re an architect, designer, or engineer, brilliant moments are inspiring and you can’t get started fast enough. You approach the design process with enthusiasm – until you get bogged down by unforeseen design challenges, excruciatingly long development cycles, or you just can’t get your unimaginative team to grasp your vision clearly. Let’s be fair, computer simulations don’t do your idea justice and clay, wood or foam models aren’t very exciting.
Concept modeling is your communication tool. It’s your ticket to design realization, testing, refining, and perfecting without the grueling process of traditional methods. It’s your success in the conference room when your hyper-realistic model looks and feels like the end product. Now your team, client, and leadership catch your vision and excitement.
Whether you’re designing the next breathtaking skyscraper, multi-million dollar consumer product, or more ergonomic tools for your industry, concept modeling is your liberator. Stratasys Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology is affordable and clean, simple to use and office friendly due to supporting production-grade thermoplastics that are mechanically and environmentally stable. Complex geometries and cavities that would otherwise be problematic become practical with FDM technology. FDM technology builds strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology. If you’re a true visionary or a perfectionist, you have the freedom to drill, sand or paint your model.
PolyJet Technology is all about exceptionally detailed, smooth and precise prototypes that convey final-product aesthetics at the earliest stage of the product-development process. But, if you’re more concerned with functionality and safety, PolyJet Technology solves the ergonomic testing conundrum with more than 100 materials and digital materials. PolyJet materials accurately replicate the rubber-like elastomeric properties of thermoset and thermoplastic materials needed for modeling rigid elements of the products.
If all this isn’t enough, let’s talk budget. Time is money and money is money. You need both to succeed. Concept modeling by way of 3D printing is done in a fraction of the time it takes to manufacture traditionally and it dramatically reduces development cost. Correct conceptual errors early on and keep your brilliant ideas safely in-house. Get your conceptual model on the table for approval and start creating.
