White Paper - Common pitfalls to avoid when prototyping with 3D printing

Keeping your application and its intended use in mind is key when prototyping. For example, early in the design process, focusing too greatly on creating components or products specifically for the additive manufacturing (3D printing) process used for prototyping may cause challenges down the road.

If you plan to scale up production utilizing a traditional manufacturing method like injection molding, this can quickly escalate into additiona redesign costs, resulting in produce sourcing challenges and even delays in time to market.

In this white paper, key areas of focus include:
  • Avoiding assembly problems
  • Prioritizing your final component requirements
  • Popular 3D Printing Plastic Materials
