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.

Concept modeling lets small design and engineering firms extend their reach by testing out more ideas and developing only the right projects.

For large companies, concept modeling within departments — or even in individual cubicles — is a way to hone ideas before presenting them to superiors. 3D printed concept models are valuable communication tools, conveying ideas to colleagues, clients and marketers in a way that a computer model never could.

Stratasys FDM Technology provides affordable, durable concept models in production-grade thermoplastics. Office–friendly FDM 3D Printers turn out small models in hours and large models in days. FDM concept models can be drilled, sanded or painted if desired.

Stratasys PolyJet 3D printing technology produces the most realistic models of any 3D printing process. You can incorporate multiple materials into one automated build to create models that look and feel like finished products, with fine details, smooth surfaces, rigid housings, soft-touch buttons, lettering, rubberlike seals and even clear components.
