Regardless of the type of business arena you are in there is one thing you will nee to investigate to make and get your point across. That is a prototype, and not just any prototype, but a 3D prototype whether it is a 3d dental printer or another type of commercial printer.. Within every business things need to be done swiftly and often times if you sit on an idea for to long, someone else had already snagged that field. So you will want to investigate rapid prototyping as soon as you can. And do not think for a second that your company is able to do the prototype yourselves, have it done by a professional at all cost. This way you know there is a technician with the skills and knowledge working on your side at least. Not only this, but the average cost of a prototyping machine is around half a million dollars! Now, unless your company wants to pay that kind of money, pay only a fraction to have your idea outsourced.
Basically there are six separate and very different techniques that are used in rapid prototyping depending on what exactly the result is that you are wanting for your prototype. With every technique is new machinery needed as well. One of the most common techniques is called stereolithography or . This was a big word for a not so big process. Usually liquid resin is used because it solidifies whenever it is placed under an ultraviolet light or a black light. Since this is the most common this is the first option offered to many mainly because most RP sites also have stereolithography or impression 3d in France, where erly pioneering work was done. There is one major flaw in this system, the ending result can be very brittle and fragile no matter how tenderly someone handles it. Although it is a cheaper method depending on how much the prototype will be handled is one main point to consider before making a final decision on this technique.
