Creating great product designs is never easy. Industrial designers often turn to rendering illustrations on flat screens when prototyping products to save the time and money needed to be spent on traditional product design prototyping. However, there are some drawbacks to working this way. Communication is key and a CMF design model is a great communication tool. It can be difficult to get an accurate sense of how the finished product will look and perform when you haven’t had the opportunity to hold a physical prototype. It can be extremely challenging to communicate the nuances of the product design to stakeholders without an actual physical model.

Product designers are always looking for ways to create the best possible product design. One way to do this is rapid prototyping. With the cost of traditional rapid prototyping and the time it takes for finishes and shipping, designers don’t usually have a budget for more than one or two iterations. Switching to digital CMF modelling using a full color 3D printer allows you to make more CMF design model iterations faster without the added costs of external vendors and you never again need to share your precious IP. By holding a full color model of their design, in-house, at any stage in the design process, designers can get a secure and definite sense of how the final product will look, feel and perform. Rapid prototyping with a full color 3D printer enables product designers to raise design quality and the confidence of decision makers.

Industrial designers can now create better design models faster than ever before, thanks to advances in 3D printing technology. With a full color 3D printer, designers can internally iterate product designs quickly and easily, making it possible to achieve a high level of design quality in a shorter amount of time. In addition, rapid prototyping with a full color, multi-material 3D printer enables designers to create full color models of their designs using Pantone validated colors and a mixture of flexible and rigid materials, just like the final product. This gives decision makers greater confidence in the product design process, as they can see exactly how the final product will look, feel and perform. As a result, rapid prototyping is revolutionizing the way products are designed and manufactured.

In today's competitive marketplace, it's easier than ever to make sure that your products are designed and manufactured exactly as you intended after you have held an actual model in your hands so there are no surprises. If you're looking to create better product designs, you need to check out this eBook. It'll show you how you can use a Stratasys full color 3D printer to create beautiful digital CMF design models using over 600,000 Pantone validated colors. This way, you can make sure that your products are designed and manufactured exactly the way you want them. Plus, the eBook gives you valuable insights on how to make better product design decisions overall. Simply complete the form and receive your copy today!
