Rapid Prototyping & 3D Printing
Rapid Prototyping – Providing Solutions
Rapid Prototyping refers to the process of building a solid 3D object, layer by layer from 3D CAD data. Popular across a wide range of industry sectors from consumer goods to medical devices, from aerospace to fashion, Rapid Prototyping has proven an invaluable design tool.
“As a product development company, we use physical prototypes wherever possible to progress designs…There was no way we could have convinced our customer to go for a custom designed solution without Rapid Prototyping ”
Rapid Prototyping technologies allow designers to identify any potential build issues within the early stages of the product development cycle and eliminate costly tooling errors.
LPE works with both large and small organisations to develop high quality prototypies to enable effective communication of ideas, rapid customer/inventor buy in and early design verification.
Rapid Prototyping has proven popular as a product design tool with common applications including;
- Tooling Aids
- Early product analysis / Market testing
- Customisation of Products / Limited Edition Runs
- Product Promotion / Photography
- Design Verification
- Sales / Marketing Tools
“I would like to thank you and all your colleagues for all your help this year. It is much appreciated. The large intake manifold, you made for us, greatly helped with our engine development programme and helped us acheive our highest points score in our team’s history in the Formula Student competitions, at Hockenheim this month.”
