Concept Modelling with 3D Printing

Concept Modeling PolyJet

Developing product concepts using 3D printing gives you the ability to:

  • Develop and refine product ideas while saving significant time and money
  • Iterate more freely
  • Gain feedback by actually touching and feeling
  • Keep your intellectual property in house
  • Get a head-start on marketing activities
  • More effectively present ideas to colleagues, clients, and leadership

For any size organisation in any industry, Stratasys has 3D Concept Modelling solutions for you.

Technology that works for you

Every idea has unique prototyping needs. That’s why we provide solutions featuring technology that covers a wide range of 3d printing requirements.

  • FDM technology uses production-grade thermoplastics to produce affordable, durable concept models. Perfect for production settings or offices, FDM 3D Printers can create small models in hours and large models in days. Plus, FDM concept models can be drilled, sanded and painted.
  • PolyJet technology produces the most realistic models of any 3D printing process. It gives you the unique option to incorporate multiple materials into one automated build – creating models that look and feel like finished products. Fine details. Smooth surfaces. Rigid housings. Soft-touch buttons. Lettering. Rubberlike seals. Clear components. If your idea calls for it, Stratasys PolyJet 3D printing technology can create it.
  • Stereolithography technology produces 3D printed parts with crisp detail and smooth side wall quality and accuracy which can eliminate finishing time, resulting in cost and time savings.  Stereolithography technology produces quality 3D printed parts, perfect for concept prototypes where you can leverage fast print times and use hollow structures to reduce printing time that result in faster cheaper prototypes that require detailed paint finishes.  Stereolithography can also be used to produce communication models for wind tunnel or fluid flow analysis to verify designs. Best fir for larger models and prototypes. 
  • Origin P3 (Programmable PhotoPolymerization) DLP technology produces high accuracy, smooth surface-finish parts with best-of-breed material portfolio including FST, tough, high-temp, and rubber-like materials to meet your application needs.  Origin P3 is perfect for Flexible Production, from high-speed printing of concept modelling parts and quick material change, throughout functional modelling such as fit and form, and up to mass production of high quality and high mechanical-property parts replacing traditional manufacturing methods.
