From Idea to Invention

Concept modeling enables companies to accelerate their product development cycle and bring ideas to market faster than ever. Producing realistic and functional prototypes have never been so quick to produce and cost-effective. With the ability to turn out smaller models in a matter of hours and larger ones in days, being able to print in-house allows for frequent and quick iterative design changes. Sell your idea, develop your design, and bring your product to market faster than the competition.

Assess Manufacturability

Interacting with a physical prototype provides tangible feedback in the real world. Quickly identify flaws and design changes with a three-dimensional model as opposed to an observation on a computer screen. With a real prototype in your hands, determine how to produce your design to its fullest potential before investing in production.



3D Print Models for Investors Show Piece

Predict Market Success

With a physical model, allow your focus group to see, hold, and examine your product’s design before it hits the market. Communicate your design to target audiences and investors early. Get a head start on creating marketing content and packaging design in preparation for the final product with a realistic and functional 3D prototype.



Presentation Models

A concept model is a visual presentation of a set of ideas that clarifies the concept for both the designer and its audience. Harnessing the latest in 3D printing technologies, this process delivers a functional and realistic prototype designed to look and feel just like a final product for presentation and display- ideal for focus groups, trade shows, and stakeholder meetings.

Concept Modeling Product Testing Fit Form Function

Ergonomic Studies

To test your product in the real world, a physical prototype helps to assess your design’s form and fit as printing a 3D model can accurately replicate the physical properties of the end product. With our lineup of advanced 3D printing solutions, you can replicate multiple materials in your prototype such as rigid, clear, and rubber-like.
