Ergonomic Studies

Study the human factors by creating 
functioning 3D printed prototypes
to test their cognitive abilities. 

 

   

 


3D Printing - Concept Modeling Solutions - Ergonomic Studies 


Ergonomic studies is the discipline of designing equipment and devices that fit the human body and its cognitive abilities. Functional prototyping is the process used to monitor human interactions with a newly designed system based on certain theories, principles and data which can be applied in order to optimize a human's well being with the overall system performance. Promoting safety, health and performance are the reasons for creating functional prototypes prior to mass production. A series of ergonomic tests need to take place in order to create the desired perfect "fit" between the user,equipment and their environment. Prototypes are required to have perfect properties in order to pass ergonomic tests. 

How it works

In order to get the exact replica of the the product with regards to how it looks and feels you need enhanced technology that will be able to mimic your product. This means that several different materials need to be used and combined to reach the final result of how the product will function. 

Using our Polyjet and FDM technology based 3D printers, our services team can create parts or one solid prototype of your ideas and designs. We also offer function testing services to validate your 3D models and parts based on their purpose in your rapid prototyping industry. 
After your product is designed and 3D printed, our services team will ensure that your prototype functions properly. 

The Proto3000 Advantage

Since the top notch technology that uses different materials and combines them is available at Proto3000. We make Ergonomic testing easy for you. Not only is it easy and fast, it also saves you energy and money when you have a system in-house.Our top notch systems print the product to perfection, as they are almost identical to the real product. This allows testing of the product when used and face interaction with a human to be authentic. Here at Proto3000 we will be by your side until the testing is complete. This means that if the ergonomic testing reveals imperfections, we will help you redesign your product until you reach perfection.

PolyJet 3D Printed Ergonomic Models

In order to really assess how your idea will function, you need to test your prototype through touching, usage and allowing your consumers to interact with the real product. Rough models are of little value when you really want to make observations of your prototype since physical properties significantly impact ergonomic performance. Property–perfect product models are essential for reliable ergonomic testing. 
PolyJet 3D Printing technology solves this problem by using more than 100 materials. PolyJet materials accurately replicate the rubber–like elastomeric properties of thermoset and thermoplastic materials that are critical for good ergonomic design and also offer materials excellent for modeling rigid components of the products. By digitally combining materials using Connex multi–material 3D printing, designers can create realistic models that reproduce the physical properties of each individual part of a product. Materials can be altered during multiple test rounds, enabling the perfection of product ergonomics before it is sent to mass production.

The Technology Used for Creating 3D Printed Concept Models

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology 

Using FDM technology allows affordability and durability by printing concept models with production-grade thermoplastics. 
FDM 3D Printers are office friendly and they produce small models in hours and large models in days. The FDM printed models can be drilled, sanded and painted according to your preference to create a perfect finishing of your prototype. 

     

PolyJet 3D Printing Technology

As a 3D printing process, this technology produces amazingly realistic models. The printing technology builds accurate models by incorporating multiple materials into one automated part to create prototypes that look and feel like finished products. With fine details, smooth surfaces, rigid housings, soft-touch buttons, lettering, rubberlike seals and even clear components, your models can look the part at a trade show, a presentation or even during a sales pitch.
