In this tough marketplace, the advantage goes to the quick and nimble. So when it comes to designing products for the consumer market, prototyping with 3D printing can help you prototype in hours, not days.
In a consumer marketplace packed with competition, getting ideas designed, tested, refined and into production first can make all the difference. Prototyping with Stratasys 3D printing solutions can help you realize your vision with faster design cycles and the ability to prototype complex designs in a variety of materials including industry-standard thermoplastics –all while keeping your ideas securely in-house.

“The Objet 3D Printer reduces the time required to produce a prototype from 4 days to 1 day. It helps us communicate between remote sites, reduce design mistakes and avoid unstable tooling.”
Andy Chung, Puma
Go beyond traditional words and CAD pictures with highly realistic 3D printed prototypes and gain early buy-in from customers and stakeholders before committing to costly production.
Quickly check your design’s form and fit with mating parts using time-efficient, accurate 3D printed prototypes.
Test your designs in the same environment as the production part. Engineering-grade thermoplastics and flexible materials give your prototypes functional capability under operational conditions.
F123 Series 3D Printers make every stage of prototyping more efficient with fast-printing PLA material, durable thermoplastics and the quickest material swaps of any FDM printer.
Based on our strong heritage of FDM technology, the Fortus 380mc/450mc series 3D Printers use engineering-grade materials like PC, ABS and FDM Nylon12CF (carbon-filled).
