More Reasons to Use 3D Prototypes over Diagrams in Court

January 24th, 2013|Uncategorized|

In our last blog, we gave a brief overview of the benefits of using a 3D prototype, instead of a flat diagram, to illustrate injuries in court. Here are a few more benefits to using a precise medical model: Often the evidence given by using a 3d Prototype is so strong that a settlement can [...]

3D Prototypes Can Help in Court

January 24th, 2013|Uncategorized|

Often in court cases where death or injury is in question, the lawyer must be able to recreate the injury or decisively illustrate for the judge and jury how the injury occurred. Extreme precision and detail is needed, whether a model or diagram is used, but many lawyers prefer a model, because it is more [...]

3D Prototypes are Especially Useful for Real Estate Developers

January 24th, 2013|Uncategorized|

Industries that sell items too big to transport easily can benefit from having an affordable, to-scale model of their product to show as an alternative. Real Estate developers have one of the biggest opportunities to gain from 3D prototypes, as potential customers prefer to see a model, instead of a blue print, and you certainly [...]

More Innovation in Less Time

January 2nd, 2013|Uncategorized|

As you have already heard from us, 3D prototypes are more realistic than on-screen previews, incredibly durable, and realistic enough to actually test, but there are a few benefits we haven't discussed yet: Being able to come up with a design, rapidly print a prototype and field test it with target groups or pitch it [...]

How is a 3D Prototype Better than an On-Screen Model?

January 2nd, 2013|Uncategorized|

Anyone who has shopped for a product online before knows that seeing something in person and handling it is different than seeing it on screen. It can be hard to convey the weight, feel and detail of an object on screen, so, often, the thing that tips the scale is being able to see a [...]

Are 3D Prototypes Better for Certain Industries?

January 2nd, 2013|Uncategorized|

3D Prototypes are used in many different industries, but certain industries do tend to use them more often and in greater quantities. Engineers in particular tend to create 3D prototypes to test and demonstrate the design of different parts, especially those engineers who are involved in manufacturing. Other professions, such as architects, use them often [...]

3D Printing: More Uses than You Think

January 2nd, 2013|Uncategorized|

Many people think of 3D Printing and think of prototypes and medical models. The technology's uses are actually much more varied than many imagine, though, and range from art to aerospace engineering -- and beyond. In fact, in 2012, the University of Glasgow, UK, demonstrated that 3D printers can be used to create chemical compounds. [...]

3D Printing Expands into Art

January 2nd, 2013|Uncategorized|

While 3D printing has been used in many different ways in the past, its uses have typically been practical, such as in the medical industry, education or business, to create a prototype of a design or part. In 2005, though, the technology was adapted and began to be used in art, in large numbers, for [...]
