DTIsm uses the Fused Deposition
Modeling (FDM) system for Rapid Prototyping (RP) your idea into an
ABS plastic model. Sometimes called 3D printing, RP is a tool that
brings new ideas from your mind into the world quicker and cheaper
than conventional prototyping needs.
Uses for RP models include:
- Design team communication
during product development
- Concept models for marketing
- Testing product design form,
fit and function
- Plugs for creating casting
Typically, parts built using RP
technology cost about 20-30% less than the cost of conventional
machining and take hours instead of days to build.
