Prototype is an early sample, model, or release of a product built to test a concept or process. Rapid prototyping is a group of techniques used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part or assembly using three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) data. Construction of the part or assembly is usually done using CNC machining, 3D printing, vacuum casting, SLA/SLS additive layer manufacturing technology.
Deluxe Rapid prototyping provides engineer, design and development teams with distinct advantage such as:
Save time and cost to help exploring and realizing concepts more quickly.
Show your clients or investors a real model of your product.
Verify the appearance, dimensions and features on product.
Evaluate and test on product by repeated designs or incorporate changes.
Create products with different surface finishing process.
Our one-stop rapid prototyping services include: CNC machining, 3D printing, vacuum casting and SLA / SLS. Deluxe specializes in high quality, low cost rapid prototyping. With a range of advanced technologies, we are able to produce any kind of model. Learn more about the following rapid prototyping information or send your CAD drawings to our international community for free quotes.
CNC machining is a subtractive manufacturing process where raw material is removed by cutting tools to make a part or product. CNC machining is suitable for the processing of engineering plastics or metals. The finished product appearance and feel are the same with mass production. CNC machining can complete products with very high tolerance requirements, with all the features required for the function such as threads, threaded holes and precise planar combinations.
3D printing process builds a three-dimensional object from a CAD model, usually by successively adding material layer by layer, which is why it is also called additive manufacturing. This unique approach to production allows designers to choose complex internal structures such as cold runners or lattice structures. 3D printing is ideal for cost and time saving in one-off complex part or small batch products.
