Concept Modeling

Communicate ideas; act on inspiration

3D printing lets engineers and designers glimpse the future by turning an idea into a one-off finished product within hours or days.

With in-house concept modeling, you can prove out your next big inspiration, incorporate improvements early, get a jump on marketing activities, and filter out failures before they become costly.

Marketing and Graphic Design

Overview

3D printed concept models are great marketing tools. Imagine showing focus groups a pre–launch model of a new product that's nearly identical to the real thing. They can see it, hold it and examine it from every angle. Stratasys 3D printing can give you high–quality product models in just hours or days — without sending your latest designs offsite.

PolyJet 3D Printed Marketing Models

For marketing, internal review, focus group and graphic design use, models 3D printed with PolyJet technology can incorporate multiple materials, including rubberlike, rigid and clear.

Get a jump on marketing collateral and packaging design with a realistic prototype. 3D printers based on PolyJet technology print reality so faithfully, you can create accurate, finely detailed prototypes at the earliest stage of the product-development process.

Truly realistic PolyJet models let you design and produce marketing collateral and packaging before production, without creating costly pre-series production molds. PolyJet creates exceptionally accurate 3D product models that have fine details and smooth surfaces. Acrylic-based materials can be post-processed to create painted and metallic finishes that make the models truly indistinguishable from the end product. Use accurate models in photos for marketing collateral that highlights product details and features, and to design effective packaging and displays. Reduce time to market by enabling graphic designers to integrate product images in collateral and ensure that packaging and displays work seamlessly with end products, well before it goes into actual production.

FDM 3D Printed Marketing Models

Models built with FDM Technology can be sanded, painted — even chrome–plated — to match the finished appearance of a new product. FDM uses production-grade thermoplastics, so you can give your model the durability and feel of a final product.
