The 3D Printing process minimizes risks.

Many industries are looking for ways to reduce the risk of errors during the process of developing a product or part. After creating a design in CAD software, a lot of companies outsource the production of the prototype part. After receiving the prototype back, a design often needs to be further optimized, and again a prototype needs to be made. These steps can repeat themselves a couple of times. 3D printing minimizes the risk of errors during this process. In this case you can check the design through creating a production ready prototype (3D print), before going ahead with the final design.

With 3D printing you can produce the prototype without having to outsource, decreasing the number of steps from design to tangible product. No miscommunication, no logistic delays, less errors. When designing the part in for example AutoCAD or SolidWorks, you can simply save the design as STL file and import the model in the 3D printing software. After indicating the required settings (for example the print material and resolution you prefer), you can save it as Gcode file and transfer it to the 3D printer.
