What Is Rapid Prototyping?
Rapid prototyping is a specialized manufacturing technique for high-quality physical models with 3D design concepts. Prototypes are very useful in design development and improvement processes as a significant basis for production or engineering testing. Prototyping is quick and economical for both personal companies and research institutions in that they never need to invest in hard tooling equipment.
Speed and affordability are the key essences for rapid prototyping. As its name shows, it emphasizes a fast turnaround. So it's expected to produce a physical part in a short time to validate the design, and then capture business chances.
This is a conventional prototyping method as well as a widespread way for metal prototyping. Runsom Precision has rich experience for 10 years in various CNC prototype manufacturing in many industries, such as automotive, electronics, energy, medical, etc.
CNC machining prototypes will provide the best precision and surface finishes. In addition, the selection of materials is unlimited as well. However, CNC machining will take a long time to prepare and set up, so we always apply this technology for high precision and metal material prototypes.
Different 3D printing technologies are suitable for different rapid prototyping stages as a pioneer in this industry.
For instance, SLA prototyping requires liquid plastic material and may provide the best finish surface; SLS prototyping is similar to SLA, but the material form needs to be powerful. FDM prototyping is the cheapest and fastest method in 3D printing technology. This additive prototyping process will finish a complete prototype part within one day. However, materials used in the 3D printing process are too expensive for the manufacturing process.
Sheet metal fabrication is a subtractive manufacturing process involving forming parts from thin metal sheets by cutting, bending, folding, stamping, and assembling. Sheet metal parts are usually highly precise and durable, making them particularly preferred by engineers to use for end-use applications such as enclosures, brackets, and chassis.
Sheet metal fabrication can provide competitive prices for small volume production of prototypes, as well as cost savings for large volume production. Runsom Precision offers high precision cutting, bending, punching, and welding of sheet metal, as well as assembly services.
Vacuum casting, also called urethane casting, offers a cost-effective choice for producing small quantities of plastic parts, closely mimicking the properties of final molded items or finished products.
Typically, molds are created from silicone rubber, using CNC machining or SLA parts as the master pattern. These molds excel in replicating intricate details and textures, ensuring uniform quality across different parts.
This method allows for the production of parts with similar mechanical characteristics, wall thickness, colors, and surface textures as those found in mass-produced items.
What is the Difference between Different Prototyping Processes?
The choice of manufacturing process for rapid prototyping is ultimately determined by the scale of production and appropriate materials for a particular project.
Advantages of Rapid Prototyping
The main advantages of rapid prototyping are as follows:
Offer multiple options
Capable of producing a wide variety of prototypes with different colors and surface textures.
Save cost & time
The small-volume prototyping run helps to minimize the costly design flaws. And it can be time-saving by eliminating the need for setup and tooling.
Refine the product with iterative rapid prototyping
Improved evaluation and functional testing of the product will be achieved by reiterating designs. Your product can be optimized before taking it to the market.
Transform a concept into a physical model
Your designs or ideas will be visualized by design for manufacturability (DFM) in a fast and cost-effective manner so that you can easily grasp the design of a product and business opportunities in the physical world.
